Pros: -Feels solid and durable in hand.
-Responsive and fluid.
-Got as a free bonus when buying an MSI motherboard.
Cons: None at all, especially at this price.
Overall Review: I got this mouse as a free bonus when buying a Kaby Lake MSI motherboard, but would definitely consider this well worth $20. This mouse performs on par with the $100 flashy gaming mice my friends use from Razor and Corsair. For $20 you wind find a better gaming mouse. Just pull the trigger on this one. You'll be glad you did.
Pros: -Stable constant 5.0GHZ overclock under 1.350V.
-Able to hit 5.2GHZ on my particular CPU.
-Best enthusiast gaming CPU on the market.
Cons: -Not much more performance over Skylake.
-Runs hotter than Skylake by 5-10 degree C.
Overall Review: I upgraded to this from my i5-6600k, I had quite a noticeable difference in performance, mainly in gaming and extreme multitasking. I would say this was definitely a good choice in my situation and would recommend this upgrade to anyone who who isn't already running Skylake i7.
Pros: -Has everything you need and more (2xM.2 slots, SLI and Crossfire support, USB 3.1)
-No tacky RGB lighting effects or fancy do-dads. Just an optional classy white backlighting.
-Sleek flat black color scheme with a clean professional look and I/O covering.
-Awesome BIOS for overclocking.
Cons: None that I can even think of, even when being picky.
Overall Review: If your looking for a Z270 chipset motherboard for a Kaby Lake build, look no further. This board is for you, has all the options and features of a $200+ motherboard without the gimmicky RGB lighting effects and tacky colors.
Pros: Good brand, quality product, good price. Its thermal paste, what else can I say? Buy it.
Overall Review: BUY IT ALREADY!
Pros: Looks awesome, has a nice sleek modern look. Easiest heatsink install ive ever done. Dropped my idles temps from 40c to around 24c average, even under full load I'm getting temps no higher than 50c. Kills your stock intel cooler. Fan is next to silent, literally cant even hear it running over my case fans, adds no sound whatsoever. Awesome Choice for light overclocking. If you threw another fan on this beast I bet you could hit 4.5ghz on your i5 6600k.
Overall Review: Super easy install, literally done in 3 minutes, no hassle at all.
Pros: Great hyperthreading performance for budget gaming, kills the FX 6300. Pair this CPU with a GTX 1050ti/1060 or an RX 470/480 and youll be amazed. Hyperthreading on this i3 is AWESOME. Buy it for your budget build right now, Buy it!
Cons: Doesnt have 4 physical cores (only 2), but hyperthreading more thqn compensates for that, trust me.
Overall Review: Pair this thing with a GTX 1050ti or RX 470 and youll be in budget build heaven!!!
Pros: Bought this RAM for my Skylake gaming rig. Its RAM at a good price and easy to overclock on my MSI SLI Plus motherboard. What else to say? Buy it!
Cons: None whatsoever
Overall Review: Perfect choice for any purpose or build.
Pros: I bought this as a part of a budget Skylake gaming build and paired it with a Core i3 6100. If your planing on playing only in 1080p or less, then this is the card for you, look no further. This thing kills Rise of the Tomb raider, MGSV The Pantom Pain, and Fallout 4 on Highest settings. However if you plan on playing in 1440 or 4K then your going to want to upgrade to the 1070 like I did. Still rated it 5 eggs because its an awesome card for what its capable of.
Cons: Doesnt perform well in 1440, or 4K.
Overall Review: Perfect budget build GPU.
Pros: It was free so I cant really complain, however you need to download through your Windows 10 App Store, which is a pain. Overall the game is pretty decent, although a little repetitive.
Cons: Must be downloaded through Windows 10 App Store.
Pros: As the title says, 80 Plus Bronze Semi Modular EVGA PSU for $60!! Cant really beat that price, it was on sale for 59.99 when I bought it, as long as it was under 80 dollars I would have still bought it. Runs super cool and quiet. Getting a Modular PSU with an 80 Plus Bronze rating with the EVGA name and Support for this price is a no brainer deal. BUY IT!
Overall Review: Perfect PSU for a gaming rig with enough wattage for SLI or Crossfire down the road. Cant think of a reason not to buy it.
Pros: Good SSD for the price, and your getting the Samsung name. Seems to perform equally to the 850 series. I assume they are using a cheaper production method to cut costs, which would explain the value pricing. Go with this option over the 850 line if your looking to save some money on your build, you wont notice a difference I promise.
Cons: None yet.
Overall Review: Buy it, you wont regret it.
Pros: If your looking for the best 4 core Skylake CPU for gaming rigs, go with this one and never look back. I Chose this over the 6500 and 6600K. Paying an extra 20 bucks gets you an extra 100mhz base speed and 300mhz turbo boost over the 6500. Your also getting the same speeds as the K version minus the overclocking, which in my opinion isnt worth it just to see a 5-10% fps increase. Idles around 36°C and goea no higher than 55°C under max load with stock cooler. I think this should be the best bang for your buck CPU over the 6500. BUY IT!
Cons: None that I can think of.
Overall Review: If your looking for the best processor to pai with your GTX 1070 or 1080 then buy this now. Paired with my 1070 im getting around 75% CPU usage during intense benchmarkingx no bottlenecks in the CPU dept.
Pros: Exactly as advertised. Better quality and half the price of any other hubs here. Comes with the hub itself which has its wires nicely shrouded, and is very sturdy and sleek looking. They even went the extra mile by adding a little black zip tie for cable management and adhesive strip. The guy below must not have noticed the strip of adhesive for easy mounting because it was in my box along with the instructions plain as day. Couldnt be happier with an 8 dollar purchase.
Cons: Took about 2 week from time of purchase for me to recieve, which isnt too bad if you ask me considering it has to come from China.
Overall Review: Do not buy another fan hub, period, you wont find one of this quality and price. Thanks DeepCool and whoever the distributer is.
Pros: My first ever corsair fan purchase, will now only but from them. Great fan that has an awesome bright cool blue look to it when running. Does what its supposed to do at a good price. Crazy fast shipping, installs easy and looks great.
Overall Review: Good price from a good company.
Pros: Purchased for mass storage for a gaming build. Got it with fast shipping. However the drive I received was DOA. I notified Newegg and the Manufacturer and they gave me return postage right away and were very prompt and polite about my refund. Like I said I'm sure this is an excellent drive, just in my case I got a dead one, which can happen to all HDDs from any manufacturer unfortunately. Still giving 4 stars for fast response and refund.
Cons: DOA, but excellent customer service and fast refund.
Overall Review: N/A
Pros: Originally bought the 1060 6GB, only to realize that although it destroyed anything in 1080p, and handled 1440p fairly well, 4K gaming was a bit out of its league. So I bought this while it was on sale for $389.99 and it handles 4K no problem even on ultra settings. The first game I tested it with was the free Gears of War 4 copy that came free, I maxed all settings at 4k and was pulling in an average of a little over 60fps. Would gladly pay full retail for another one when building another system.
Cons: None at all, this card is AMAZING and does everything I expected it to and more and an even better price. I was hoping for a nice little decal badge sticker for my case, but I only got the HUGE enthusiast stickers with my purchase. don't get me wrong, the big stickers are nice, but I would have liked a small EVGA badge to show off on my case. *HINT* *HINT* (EVGA!! send me a free EVGA badge decal, please?) JK JK.
Overall Review: Would recommend to anyone looking for a great performing 1070. It doesn't get much better than this.
Pros: Picked this motherboard up for a secondary gaming rig for the basement, Was going to buy the SLI PLUS version, but went with this to say 40 bucks to loss the onboard video. Couldn't be happier with it. It has an awesome looking black finish to it and feels real solid. No problems installing it at all.
Cons: None at all.
Overall Review: Probably gonna pick up 2 more to build a couple of Christmas PCs for my nephews.
Pros: Bought this case for a secondary gaming build. Thought maybe it would be cheaply made or have fit/finish/quality problems because of the price... But I was waaaay wrong and couldn't be happier with it. Looks as good as it does in the ad photos. It feels real sturdy and solid, the white metal with the smoked acrylic side panel gives it an awesome look. Plenty of space to work with and all the hardware was there. The fans are near silent and push a good amount of air, also the fan LEDs are really bright and look exactly as they are advertised in the photo. Really happy with this purchase, this case is better than most of the 100 dollar mainstream cases out there. Buy it, trust me.
Cons: Cant really call these cons because of the price tag of this case, but it could use some rubber grommets for cable management holes, and there could be room for one more fan. As I said though for 50 dollars, you cannot beat this case.
Overall Review: Gonna buy 2 more of these for Christmas console killer builds for my nephews.
