Most Favorable Review

Oh my lanta

Intel Core i5-4690K - Core i5 4th Gen Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 88W Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Processor - BX80646I54690K
Intel Core i5-4690K - Core i5 4th Gen Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 88W Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Processor - BX80646I54690K

Pros: Fast Good thermal with the redesign in devils canyon Efficient with its turbo clock without ever lagging behind the curve

Cons: Absolutely none

Overall Review: It's no i7 so obviously no hyperthreading where it counts such as rendering, BUT, for gaming, this thing is insane. Coming from an AMD Phenom II X4 965 which I've ran into the ground since 2009 and having a GTX 970 SSC with above marginal performance in FPS, it is amazing just how much my GPU was being held back. Now in most modern titles where even with the card I'd have to keep my settings on medium to high, can just now full out Ultra on anything and it performs beautifully. Half the things I throw at the CPU it doesn't even stress about taking the jobs in stride. I'm incredibly happy with this purchase.

Most Critical Review

Everything is solid except for one, unfortunately crucial thing

Ergotech FDM-PC-G01 Freedom Arm Clamp for PC Single
Ergotech FDM-PC-G01 Freedom Arm Clamp for PC Single

Pros: Good clamping system makes it usable with almost any table Spring tension adjust is easy to do and can really be wound tight to hold nearly any monitor Easy to swivel and adjust as needed

Cons: My only complaint is that with the Acer X34 Predator it keeps tilting forward at the last pivot point. No way to adjust that I can see. The monitor without the stand, confirmed by the manufacturer, only ways 13 pounds. Within the specs of this arm. Just to keep the monitor propped up where it won't tilt down, I have an old glass candle under the monitor. Because of this though I cannot raise my monitor higher up where I'd like it to be so this arm has limited use to me.

Overall Review: If there is a way to adjust that pivot point, please, let me know.
