ASUS X99-A LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Mostly excellent arrangement of slots and connections.
5 Way optimization program works extremely well.
Took 5930k to 4.4 GHz with 1.32v, I then manually bumped the cpu up to 4.5 GHz at 1.33v
UEFI is nice and easy to use.
Excellent feature set for the price
Lots of features to play with in the future.

Cons: M.2 SSD mount is located directly over the TPU chip.
Currently M.2 ssd's are giving off a lot of heat.

Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80648I75930K Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have this cpu installed on an Asus X99-A and it overclocks very well: 4.5GHz at 1.331v.
Blazes through every test I have thrown at it.
Runs much cooler (on a custom water loop) than the online reviews led me to believe it would.

Cons: A lot of extra money to get all 40 pcie lines.
Uses a lot of power during intensive applications.

COOLER MASTER Silencio 550 RC-550-KKN1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Roomy, great looking, quiet. Lots of room for cables behind mobo tray, removeable hdd cage, black interior.
Could be used for a gaming rig as long as the gpu's exhaust their heat out the back.

Cons: Comes with two 800 rpm fans, should come with three. Or better yet, two 800's in front and one 1000-1200 in the back.
Had to buy somewhere else because Newegg wasn't carrying it yet.

Other Thoughts: Built a friend a business oriented computer. Cooled an OC'ed q9650 with a hyper212 and a low end gpu and it remained cool and quiet.
