Pros: Price was good. $20 the day I bought mine. Sound is pretty loud.
Cons: Its very hard to put it in the different modes it can do. The most aggravating thing about it all which is why I took an egg away is the loud and very annoying Chinese lady with the British accent.
Noisy power supply fan
Cons: I ordered one, only to find 6 days later that newegg or wherever they get these pcs from didn't ship my computer after I bought it. I had to get newegg to cancel my order. Then I had to buy another one. Tie up even more money. Then when I finally got the computer it sounded like a helicopter taking off. The power supply fan bearings were bad. Really, why didn't anyone hear that loud noisy fan? And if they did, why did they ever think that sound was acceptable? So not to delay the computer to my customer any longer I had to tear up my shop looking for a compatible fan to change the really noisy one they left in there. Total fail. 5 hours later I found a fan and changed the one in the power supply. NO QUALITY CONTROL.
Overall Review: They price is OK, but if you buy one hopefully you get it in less than 7 days and hopefully they techs who fix it up are not idi@ts and let it go out with problems because you may not have what you need or even know how to fix it and you will have to send it back.
ARGB fan controller no good
Pros: The case has a very decent price for the fact that you get 4 ARGB fans
Cons: Fan controller does not work. When connected properly to the motherboard, you cannot control the lighting via software. It appears you only have the option to use the reset button on the chassis to cycle through the lighting options. The booklet it comes with does not explain the functionality nor is there information on their website about this very lacking controller. I had to use a $20 ARGB splitter and completely remove the controller, to be able to use software to control all the chassis fans and cpu fan lighting.
Overall Review: Bottom line, don't expect the controller board to work like expected. If you even choose to use this case, get an 5 way ARGB splitter.
DO NOT BUY THIS PROCESSOR. ITS GARBAGE - please read
Pros: Not a one
Cons: -Only 16 pci-e lanes = bad -No quad channel ram support = bad -No 16x sli support = bad -Way overpriced Intel totally messed this one up big time. This CPU is nothing more than a high end i5. You cannot due quad channel memory config. You cannot do 16x sli. Which is why anyone would even consider moving to this socket. This CPU is a total waste of money. To get a 2066 socket CPU that can do what my i7-3820 (which had 40 pci-e lanes) and was cheaper than this crummy processor, you have to spend over $1000. Once again, "GOOD JOB INTEL". The fact that they even created this CPU knowing all of its limitations was obviously on purpose and very greedy. I really hope they read this review and all the other reviews about this entire line of CPUs.
Overall Review: If you were considering buying this processor, "DON'T". If you read my cons you will understand. If you are considering building/upgrading your gaming system, give AMD a shot. Their Ryzen 7 line is pretty sweet for gaming.
This review for ASRock review rebate program
Pros: -3x m.2 -quad channel memory
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Just a word of advice. If you want to build a 2066 socket PC and do quad channel ram and true 16x sli = you need to have a 44 lane cpu. Unfortunately, Intel is gouging the prices on these CPUs. The cheapest 44 lane cpu is over $1000. Shame on you Intel. All the i7s in this family are only 16 & 28 lane cpus. Once again, "SHAME ON YOU INTEL". "YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!"
I purchased: USB 2.0/3.0 SATA 2.5" HD HDD Hard Disk Drive Enclosure External Case Cover. (which now does not even exist on newegg.com anymore) sellers description of this item boasts usb 3.0 in several different places. Basically they make you think this item is usb 3.0, which in fact it is only usb 2.0 speed. They lied about this item, I bought 2 of them and are unhappy with this purchase based on their misleading information.
This is a very shabby company. I bought a 7' lcd panel a month ago. I bought it for use with game consoles only to find out it had no audio. I contacted them, paid a difference, shipped them the original lcd and they shipped me a replacement that had audio. After I hook it up and test it, the speakers are blown. All they do is snap, crackle & pop. I have contacted them 4 times now about it and they are completely ignoring me. They obviously do not want to stand behind what they sell. Now I am out $40 after all of this. After reading all the bad reviews about this company, I'm very surprised new-egg still has them on their site. Hopefully Newegg will make it right for me which is a shame since its not their part to do.
