5 out of 5 eggs 5 eggs vs 8.1 01/09/2017

This review is from: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Pros: First off I bought almost 50% less on another Microsoft partner website. Second, pro is not needed unless you're trying to certify or are in some kind of business setting using the extra features. I have upper certifications in win7 and started those certs with Vista. Glad I did, I understand the up coming trend. Intel is at 14nm.......What's next? Almost at the end of that. AMD has a lead in embedded GPU but not compute power. Changes are coming, and desk tops will have to change. The best way to describe this OS is it feels light weight compared to the others. Very fluid! Faster everything. Ssd's? Amazing!.

Cons: None so far. I was having multi problems updating a new win7 install (thx Microsoft). infact I ordered win7 but the key was back ordered and win10 wasn't, so I ended up with this.

Other Thoughts: I wanted win10 for my son's Xmas present, but he didn't. He just got forced to get updated. He likes it, but stumbles. Take your time and you'll love it too. Just like XP to Vista, no one wanted it. I learned Vista, so when win 7 came out I was way ahead of those that waited. Don't wait, go the free OS if this upsets you that much.

MSI MSI Gaming Z170A GAMING M3 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Not a low end or mid level board! Doesn't SLI ,but is feature packed for those that don't need SLI.

Cons: People that state this is a low end to mid level board. It's suppose to only be a board that has all the features the m5 and m7 has, but without SLI and multi m.2 slots. A couple other things maybe, but that's why people over buy. Newegg won't allow me to download photo's !

Other Thoughts: Not worth 150, but really worth 129 or less. I would have bought the m5 had I not got the deal I did. Don't pay more then 129! I paid less, but 129 is worth it. Lot's of features and supporting software that is helpful. BIOS is easy if you're experienced. XMP works! My video card is two big to SLI, so I went with this without losing anything other then an m.2 slot and SLI. Very well done board. MSI has come to be a big contender for best Mobo since 2008. Love them! ASus held that title forever......Now they're iffy.

CORSAIR RMx Series RM750X 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply

Pros: UL cert, fully modular and is gold! I like gold.

Cons: This is where I normally place a beer, cooking or cleaning comment. Not today. Nothing wrong so far. Can't even comment on cable length because I used red braided extension cables whether I needed extra length or not.

Other Thoughts: Was running my 980ti on a 650 gold w/AMD 8 core, but for my I7 6700k build, water cooling and extra case fans, I wanted another 100 watts. This is doing very well. Got it a great rebate on it........Hope it comes. Full mod is nice. Use only what you need. These cables are flat and easily hidden on side panel due to flat. UL cert was important to me. Get some chow.
