Purchased mostly for streaming PC games to big screen1/17/2016 10:50:34 PM

Pros: Does what is says and does it well. By far the best android tv on the market. Everything is instant including streaming 4k Christmas deal inc both the remote & the stand

Cons: WATCH out for the controller button issues....If you get the back button or volume button bug... do a controller reset as it may work for you.

Overall Review: Newegg has always been great to me & no different on this purchase. I had a faulty controller & they shipped me an entire unit as a replacement with a paid label &..... they shipped me the new unit BEFORE i returned the new one with no charge to me. I can think of one other company that does this, and that is evga. BRAVO Newegg.

Been through he double hockey sticks with 970's before this card2/28/2015 6:24:33 PM

Pros: Smooth as silk compared to the 970. OC to 1500mhz without having to increase the voltage. Card is a power house. Sli when 2nd card arrives then finally 4k is within reach. No AA needed at 4k and when dx12 hits the scaling on SLI will be greatly increased. Two of these GPU's plus dx12 and nothing will punish your rig.

Cons: Had to purchase a back plate separately on a premium GPU.

Overall Review: Had to 970 in sli constant stutter at soon at the vram came close to 3.5. I dislike AMD so this was the only option. If you are comparing the 970 with this card dont. Do your research about the vram issus as it is much more then just a segmented memory pool. The 2nd segment runs at 1/7 the speed compared to the first.

Carved in Stone?5/29/2013 7:01:06 PM

Pros: Purchased it for 1 reason, and thats M-Disk. Want my photos, all 10 gigabytes to last in a safe without degradation and thats what this drive is meant for.

Cons: Dual layer & M-Disk BR will be out soon so the drive will be obsolete before it's 1st birthday.

Not worth it's weight5/29/2013 6:55:44 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Purchased this to change the TIM on my aging EVGA 560TI's Did 1 to see how it would affect it and the temps stayed the same. Either EVGA used realy good TIM on these cards which i doubt or this is just an average TIM. Nothing special here....

Overall Review: 1 Tube barely covered the GPU heatsink.

Corsair Loyalist12/17/2011 1:43:23 PM

Pros: Wow. I am impressed. I have always used Corsair as I never in all the years I have been building had an issue. But this time i tried both corsair a little lower lower mhz set and this set and I am impressed. All benchmarks went up substantially and load time in Crysis 2 decreased with all settings maxed out . Loaded Profile in bios and away i went! G.Skill has impressed me with this kit enough to now always consider them as an option VS Corsair.

Cons: Not a con but an issue with details in description. States Quad channel memory designed for LGA2011 Intel Core-i7 processors and X79 platforms. Intel XMP 1.3 ready. Yet its not just for socket 2011 its for all ddr3 boards as i Verified with G.Skill tech support. Listing needs to be revised as it will scare away socket 1155 and other users.

Overall Review: You read everywhere that you wont really see a performance gain over the Intel memory specs which is total you know what. The true performance of this memory shines when you OC your CPU.

Smokes Asus Maximus Z Board11/12/2011 7:06:53 PM

Pros: First i got this board was very impressed. boot speed are incredible with 2 ssd raid 0. BUT like the spoiled brat i am i wanted the king of mb's so i brought this back and got the Asus Maxims extreme z same chipset for a whopping 350 bucks. NO WAY. this board kicks the Asus mb as*! way faster and you can raid from the Asus new Marvell chip its data only! try and find that on the box! Went back to this board and i am very satisfied. Had to try....

Cons: Only reason to go with Asus board would be the 200 chip and 3 way SLI.

Overall Review: 8 second boot difference between this board and Asus. That's with the Asus set up with or without UEFI boot.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS10/23/2011 7:23:25 PM

Pros: NONE

Cons: Secure erase using there own software bricked them. Spoke to tech support after calling for three days! they are aware of the issue and to rma...no chance... sent back and went with corsair no issues since.

Overall Review: Sandforce has a monopoly on ssd controllers so no wonder they all suck and have high failure rates...

Three days before top fan started making noise.8/23/2011 11:03:49 PM

Pros: None

Cons: They suck really bad. Noise after three days on top fan. If you hit it every 5 minutes its OK. Just get an open case so you can keep hitting the fan....

Overall Review: New Egg to the rescue. A few days out of rma and they still refunded me as i purchased the CORSAIR CMXAF2 Fan & Heat sinks which is much better then this junk.

GREAT COOLER! BUT GIGABYTE OWNERS BEWARE!8/16/2011 9:47:58 AM

Pros: Temps blow away prior temps with H60. Cant even compare. 10 Degree difference!! 29-34 Idle on an old qx9650 @ 3.5Ghz. Load under Intel Burn test maxed out is 57C. And that's with the fans on low because i forgot to press the button!

Cons: Will crush your Gigabyte Caps unless you face the block with the hoses down!

Overall Review: Remember.....Gigabyte MB's = Water cooler block DOWN! Hoses coming out of bottom! how else can i say it......Hoses coming out toward video cards! lol

GIGABYTE OWNERS BEWARE!8/10/2011 6:48:05 PM

Pros: Cool temps after it crushes your capacitors. Great product if it would fit.

Cons: ****Crushed caps on GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard. Corsair is aware of the issue but states it is a user error!!*****

Overall Review: All you have to do is turn the block 90 degrees so the hoses are facing down and no cap crush! But yet they wont put this in there install instructions. Went to file a claim and was told the process would take months and if approved they would offer me "fair market" value for my mobo. Still sells on google shopping for over 200 dollars what are they going to offer me? Is it worth my time ? I doubt it...on top of that they wanted me to send them the cooler that i just purchased! there is nothing wrong with the cooler take my mobo not the cooler! makes no sense!!!! All designed so you dont bother with a claim and it worked.

Replaced a GTX 260 SC7/24/2011 2:52:04 PM

Pros: Can play all current games at full eye candy and still stay over 30FPS. Overclocks like a monster! 1GHZ with no voltage increase tested with stable OC Scanner.

Cons: Crysis 2 had errors with this card. Open the console and look at all the shader errors. Level three ea support blames the card and EVGA level2 support says its a game issue but to increase the voltage a little and see if the errors go away....they didn't. and the errors are at stock GPU speeds.

Overall Review: One blames the other yet we the customer dont get the full effects of the game if there are shader errors in DX 11. Lost 1 star

Upgrade from GTS2508/24/2009 5:26:18 PM

Pros: Transcoded 800MB AVI to Mpeg4 in 7 Minutes using Badaboom with CUDA Tech!! 7 Minutes!!! Usually took my C2Duo E6700 25-35 Minutes. What a Difference. Forget about gaming and start using this card for video editing like its meant to be. Not a lag in any game I own.

Cons: Wish it came with the CUDA app Badaboom instead of a game we cant download for another month!

Overall Review: Definitely a nice upgrade from the GTS250. Seen a 15FPS Increase across the board.

E6700 VS E66008/25/2006 11:18:38 AM

Pros: I have had both the 6700 & the 6600 And let me tell you that there is a world of difference in the two chips! The 6600 over clocked does NOT compare to a stock or over clocked 6700. The speed and stability of the bigger brother is well worth the extra money. In fact that is why there is such a price gap.

Cons: NONE!

Overall Review: E6700 Gigabyte 965P-Q6 2 150 Gig Raptors Raid 0 6800 Ultra GT 2 Gigs of Corsair 6400C

Bad memory controller8/9/2006 4:43:53 PM

Pros: Nice features. More then enough Sata connectors. Two raid chips. When it feels like running it is pretty fast.

Cons: After 4 hours of testing and thinking I had a memory issue Gigabyte and corsair came to the conclusion that the boards memory controller is bad.

Overall Review: This board and every other conroe capable MB are in there infancy and we are the parents.
