Pros: This is a solid power supply that runs my SLI GTX 980's and multiple drives and accessories. Plenty of extra power.
Cons: I did have an issue with the first psu I was sent. It was DOA.
Overall Review: This was a replacement psu for the one I originally bought when I built this rig a few years ago. The replacement psu arrived DOA. The return process was seamless and quick. I got the replacement as fast as I could expect. No hassles, they just did their best to get my psu to me with the least inconvenience. This feedback is more about my appreciation for newegg and why I buy my computer parts here.
Great case - Buy it
Pros: I am completely impressed with this case. It has a well thought out design with the builder in mind. There is plenty of room for a big heatsink. I installed the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and there is room to close the side door with a 120mm fan on it. Actually, the fan is mounted back enough to allow the door to slide shut without hitting the top of the heat sink. There are other smart features like the mounting screws are preinstalled for an ATX motherboard. The Asus Maximus Hero VI that I installed lined up perfectly. If you use a smaller board, just remove the unused screws. While I did not install a water cooler, it will easily accommodate one. The sata dock on the top is another smart feature I liked.
Cons: The harddrive tray pins that go in to the hd screw holes, pop out too easy when your squeezing in the hd. You have to pop out the hd to push them back in. It’s not a big deal though.
Overall Review: This is just a well thought out computer case that’s priced extremely well for all that you get. It improved my build time. I would give this case a higher rating if there were more eggs.
Works with 4790k
Pros: This board works with the Devil Canyon 4790k. The board I received has the 1505 bios update. Recognized the cpu immediately. The board works well I like all the features it has to offer.
Cons: I just built my rig recently, there are no cons to report.
Overall Review: Have not overclocked yet. I will update once I run the board through it's paces.
Pros: This line of SSD's are very stable. I have had no issues and have bought enough of them to give 5 stars. I was looking for an SSD that didn't need immediate firmware updates and works well right out of the box. No problems with SATA 2 but prefers SATA 3.
Cons: The read/writes are not as high as other SSD's but still fast enough. The Marvell Controller provides reliability but not top notch speed other SSD's claim to offer.
Overall Review: Your read speeds will vary from low 400's to high 300's depending on configuration. Writes are little softer and haven't got above mid 300's with SATA 3 and SATA 2 coming in mid to low 200's. Crystal Disk Mark is the benchmark used. I have bought 6 so far. 3 for builds and 3 for the rigs in my network. No fails and I am happy with these drives based on stability and reliability.
Pros: I have owned this router for 2 years and it has met all my home network needs. I can't remember if I have ever reset it intentionally because of performance. I have had to add 2 switches to connect my slingbox and tv in one room. And another for the printer and 4 pc's in another. Plus it handles a houseful of wireless phones and laptops without any problems.
Cons: None for me.
