Intel Core i7-4771 Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74771 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 4 cores with 4 virtual cores. Should be good with video editing and other high end tasks.

Cons: Wish it was a true 8 core.

Other Thoughts: I'm coming from an Athon64x2 4000 and it's night and day faster.

ASRock Z87M PRO4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Legacy PCI slots, parallel, and serial ports (for those that need them). Nice UEFI screen. Excellent control over fan speeds via UEFI, the ASROCK A-tuning app, and yes, Speedfan also works but it mislabels the fans, lol. I put in the CPU, memory, hooked up the necessary cables and it fired right up.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Not as advanced as the "extreme" series but definitely more so than the basic "B" and the "H" series chipsets. This board packs a lot of bang for the buck and will make for a good mid to upper mid range system. No mention of Nvidia SLI support but it does support AMD Crossfire. Mine is paired with a core i7 4771 and 16GB of Gskill ram.

4 out of 5 eggs Takes a bit of getting used to. 03/13/2014

This review is from: Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit

Pros: Boots faster than Win 7 (esp. with fast boot enabled). Better memory management. Big time enhancements to task manager!
Looking forward to win 8.1 update 1 to roll out soon...

Cons: Don't care much for the "modern" interface. Also, why must MS make the CD KEY so bloody small? Not all of us have perfect vision!
