Most Favorable Review

easy to OC, runs cool

Intel Core i5 6th Gen - Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530
Intel Core i5 6th Gen - Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Pros: - Was able to get to a 4.4 without any trouble, 212 evo keeping the temps around 30c idle..stressed it sits in the 50s. Very happy with it. - just really fast - paired with a 970 getting Witcher 3 60fps max settings (no gimpworks), Fallout 4 max settings 60 FPS (but it's optimized poorly) GTA V most settings on max getting like 60, the OC gives me about 3-5 extra FPS

Cons: lol

I bought this at the worst possible time but it's still a great card for 1080p

Pros: - handles most AAA games with ease - handles my modest OC pretty well (+165, +250)

Cons: don't have any other than the fans being unbelievably loud when above 50, but since that's never happened with my afterburner settings how can I complain?

Beautiful picture

Pros: - bright, vibrant picture - HDMI, DVI and VGA, lots of flexibility - turns on very quickly, reaching max brightness immediately - built in speakers are functional - good price

Cons: - physical buttons on bezel are cheap feeling and difficult to press - menus difficult to navigate

Overall Review: I love it, good monitor, have my PS3 and PC hooked up to it.

Pros: 16 GB cheap fast shipping

Cons: Slow frustrating packaging

Pros: Cheap OC in BIOS

Cons: Ram clock speed not available in BIOS even though the board's main setting is supposed to be DDR3 1600. My Dual Channel, DDR3 1600 mhz G-Skill RAM is 1333 in the BIOS, and when manually changing the clock speed, no option for 1600 is present. Pretty disappointing.

Overall Review: Really disappointed with the RAM clock speed setting. Would be 5 eggs if this issue was rectified.

Great case

Pros: Non-expensive! Lots of ventilation. My components are very very cool.

Cons: Hard drive mounting is silly. Although, it allows for better cooling. Still tough to get in. Side doors are a pain to get off, but that's pretty standard.
