Pros: Installed stock intel fan/heatsink while I waited for the EVO to arrive. This morning I tested playing a 4k video. CPU got up to 181 F. This evening, I installed the EVO and played the same 4k video and the max temp was 120 F. Pretty amazing.
Cons: Not as easy to install as the intel stock CPU, and if I hadn't watched a couple youtube videos on it, it would have taken me a lot longer to figure it out.
Everything I could ask for
Pros: Opened it up, bolted on the stand (only three small screws, which worried me, but it balances perfectly), turned it on and was appropriately amazed. It's huge, it's bright. No dead pixels that I can see. When I loaded up some games, I was able to see much more contrast between light and dark levels. Maybe my old monitor really was just too old, but I could turn down the brightness levels within the games now that this monitor showed such good contrast. Am in love with this thing.
Cons: Bright enough to blow your eyelids off at the default. I'm at 50% and thinking of pushing that down even more.
Super solid chair
Wow. If you're looking for a solid, well-built chair, this is it. The pieces are heavy and sturdy. All the holes fit in the slots and it is very comfortable to sit in. Only a few things are adjustable, but they are the most important. It has a very tall range of up and down for the seat. Good locking for how far the back reclines. It's not as big as my chair at the office, but since I don't have as much room in my home office, I appreciate that. I'm extremely happy with the purchase.
