Most Favorable Review

Excellent Proc

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 - Core 2 Duo Conroe Dual-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E6700
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 - Core 2 Duo Conroe Dual-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E6700

Pros: Fast, can overclock like nobody's business. It also stays cool when overclocking compared to previous procs.

Cons: People that write reviews and say that this is the same as a 2.8Ghz Pentium D? I really don't get it. This chip blows that one away (I have one)!! I have had no problems with this chip whatsoever.

Overall Review: System Spec: Nforce i680, Conroe E6700 @ 3.575Ghz, Thermaltake Big Typhoon, XMS2 6400Pro, 2x8800GTX/SLI, X-Fi Platinum, 2xWD 250G SATA2 (Raid0), Silverstone 750W (12v=72a), XaserIII Case.

NewEgg-Disappointing

TOSHIBA Laptop Qosmio Intel Core i7 1st Gen 720QM (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M 18.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit X505-Q870
TOSHIBA Laptop Qosmio Intel Core i7 1st Gen 720QM (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M 18.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit X505-Q870

Pros: Great laptop when it isn't trying to boil water. Fast, big, very nice. Lack of eggs is due to new egg's poor rma service. the really stink!! I would give them zero eggs if I could!!

Cons: Heavy, hot, fingerprint magnet. Like I stated, new egg stinks like rotten egg!!

Overall Review: Turns out that mine has a faulty heat sensor and my cpu fan does not come on at all. 60D celcius on idle. Sent it back to new egg for a replacement, wow, what a fiasco. I have been along time new egg customer, but not anymore. As soon as I get the laptop back, no more new egg. absolutely ridiculous RMA policies.

Great Monitor

ASUS 27" 1440P Eye Care Monitor (PB278Q) - QHD (2560 x 1440), IPS, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI
ASUS 27" 1440P Eye Care Monitor (PB278Q) - QHD (2560 x 1440), IPS, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI

Pros: I bought this monitor in July, 2013. It has been a performer, and I couldn't be happier with it. I us it for both work and gaming. I am a VoIP Cloud engineer that uses the real-estate of 2K, and a fairly heavy gamer. In 2014, I acquired a 2x970 GTX sli setup. I must say this monitor delivers on both fronts. No issues gaming whatsoever, and I use this on both my gaming PC and Mac Book Pro for work (I know, it is what they game me). I use the Display port for the PC and HDMI for the MAC. I don't have any issues with sleep, dead pixels, ghosting, backlight bleed, or switching inputs, as other reviewers have state. Excellent product. Was actually thinking about buying 2 more for more real-estate and gaming immersion. Recently upgraded both units to windows 10 with zero issues. I paid 559.00 for mine at the time, so it has come down a bit since then.

Cons: None....Could be buy 2 get 1 free, but we know that isn't happening. The OSD menu is a little frustrating, but they all generally are in my experience.

Still Awesome

Thermaltake Chaser A71 VP400M1W2N Black SECC ATX Full Tower Case
Thermaltake Chaser A71 VP400M1W2N Black SECC ATX Full Tower Case

Pros: Plenty of Room. Keeps out the dust bunnies. Quiet compared to last build. Top Hard Drive Bay is excellent.

Cons: None for me.

Overall Review: I have had this case for over a year, and with the removable filters, this thing still looks like I built it today. I am running 2x970 in SLI with no issues or heat problems. Very generous space inside. Has a deep dimension.

Samsung

Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 500 GB 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive
Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE500LW 500 GB 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive

Pros: Put this in my MacBook Pro (mid 2012) Works flawlessly. Have used the external usb 3 connector many times 2nd Samsung drive, very impressed.

Cons: Non So far.

Overall Review: Great SSD. I usually go with the Intel, but I could not pass this one up. I would definitely buy again, and may do that to upgrade my wife's sony notebook.

Zotac Delivers

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB, ZT-90101-10P
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB, ZT-90101-10P

Pros: Power, Heat, Next Gen Memory Architecture, Price. I am using a 1440p monitor, and 2 of these in SLI. I get almost 80fps in Crysis 3 average without VSync (everything on ULTRA!), and I score 2900+- in Unigine BM. My heat stays around 79 degrees at full load. I came from 2x670GTX SLI setup, and this blows it away (1 970 Blew it away). The 4G of memory really helps in the higher resolution. I usually go to EVGA, but they had a design flaw in the card I was looking at, and, frankly, this was the only card in stock.

Cons: Cooling seems a little cheap. When I first received the cards, the fans would kick to 100% when I was playing a game, and man they were loud. However, after a couple day burn-in period, they do not spin up that fast anymore, I can't even hear them over the rest of the fans in my case, and everything works perfectly.

Overall Review: I only overclock my machine when I benchmark. System Specs: Asus Sabertooth X79 (socket 2011) Intel I7-3820 (Sandy Bridge) 3.8G Turbo 32G GSkill Ripjaws PC1600 DDR3 (xmp profile) 2x Zotac 970 SLI Asus PB278 (2560X1440) EVGA Super Nova 1000W CPU Thermaltake Chaser A71 Full tower 2x Intel Cheryville SSD (RAID0) 2x WD Black HD (RAID0) Sound Blaster ZxR 2 of these in SLI almost outperform or in some cases, outperforms the Titan, which is a steal from a price to performance perspective.
