Most Favorable Review

Best for the $

Intel 750 Series HHHL (CEM2.0) 400GB PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEDMW400G4R5

Pros: Fast,easy to setup and well worth the $. It's faster than the specs intel gives you.I'm getting almost 1.1 GB writes & 2.37GB read speeds.

Cons: It takes up a PCIE slot

Overall Review: Took some tweaking to get full potential,but worth the extra time ASUS X99 SabertoothMB 16GB Corsair vengeance Intel I7-5930k

Most Critical Review

13 months then failure

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9S-8GXM
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9S-8GXM

Pros: I had no functional problems up to the point of failure=13 months

Cons: After 13 months of use and NO overclocking one of the sticks failed(i bought 2).Not much of a big deal,nothing lasts forever. 2 days later the second stick is failing.I'm starting to get the occasional error code (3 beeps) that came right before the first stick failed. I'm going through the RMA process right now.Kinda screws me if the second sticks fails right now as i'll have to request another RMA and buy a another set of RAM just to function. RMA UR2145706

Overall Review: I'll likely just move on and try a different brand.A previous set i purchased failed as well but lasted over 2 years.

Fantastic

Fallout 4 - PC
Fallout 4 - PC

Pros: One of the few new games that recently got released with no performance issues. Graphics... look awesome..gameplay is very good with a multitude of different routes you can take in the game that lead to a different experience.IT COMES WITH A POSTER WOOHOOO!

Cons: At the moment none.

Overall Review: Bethesda appears to be setting a standard when releasing a game that works on day one. Dice, rocksteady...take note.

Nice graphics

Star Wars: Battlefront - Standard Edition - PC
Star Wars: Battlefront - Standard Edition - PC

Pros: Nice graphics.Good game play when a server can be found.

Cons: This game needs some severe optimization for pc. Hit counters are terrible. A lot of the time you sit in a lobby for a hour waiting for a game just to find out the level is frozen. The recent update messed the map rotation up and the audio. All of this is -3 eggs. -2 eggs to newegg for sending me a downloadable game only when i paid for 3 day shipping on a empty case.They apparently didn't think it was necessary to relay this info before checking out.

Runs cool,quite & fast!

Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP, 100380SR
Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP, 100380SR

Pros: Stays cool when running.I never seen over 47C(even after the fan rotation was switched to pull ). I found no games that this card can't run @ max settings.

Cons: The card will randomly(hasn't happened during gaming yet) turn half of my screen green and the other half will have severe lines like a old uhf/vhf tv when signal is bad. I replaced the hdmi cable and swapped out a monitor to confirm they were not the problem...confirmed. A RMA was submitted and luckily it happened within the 1 month return policy. The only question is how many months will it take to get a replacement.

Overall Review: Overall this graphics card performs very well.The only problem i ran into was the fan for the radiator was set up to push not pull.

Good cooler for a good price

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Pros: Easy to install and keeps a i7 5930k cool.

Cons: none

Overall Review: After a few hours of heavy gaming the fans continue to run for about 15-25 minutes at full speed. Cool down is not immediate..obviously.
