5 out of 5 eggs Is this the real life, is this just fantasy? 09/23/2014

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-0974-KR 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Superclocked ACX G-Sync Support Video Card

Pros: So the card truly does all nvidia advertised! These graphics blew away my old 650 ti boost card like it was from 1998. Okay a bit of an exaggeration, but still it was definitely worth every penny for the upgrade! It has ran everything on max graphics with at least 30+ frames a second, including assassins creed 4, titanfall, borderlands 2, and batman arkham origins. It has exceeded every benchmark I've put it through with flying colors!

Cons: I normally wear a gaming headset so I can't hear most things outside of the headphones. But when I took them off I could hear a slight noise of the EVGA fan. I have yet to play around with the fan speeds with the EVGA utility. But I know its running cool enough when idle that I can lower them if I wanted to.

Other Thoughts: an amazing card! Best card for this price that has ever existed! Although don't use ontrac shipping if you can avoid it. I watched the guy who delivered my package literally toss my box at the door.

Pros: I've had this motherboard for a few months now and absolutely love it! Its spacious, easy to install, and has run great with everything I plug into it! Using the USB 3.0 ports on the back I was able to install an iso of WIndows 7 in all of about 4 minutes! Everything runs great and there hasn't been one issue. It is a great Motherboard for the price.

Cons: None so far.

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

Pros: This CPU is more than I imagined it would be! I've been monitoring performance and I can play any game while a few other applications are running without this CPU breaking a virtual sweat. I've not had one issue with it and it is worth every penny. I'm sure it will last me for years to come. i haven't had any problem with heat, the fan it comes with seems to be fairly quiet as well. I only have it clocked at the standard 3.5GHz

Cons: When the day comes that I need to clock higher I may get a different cooler though due to the reputation of the standard cooler it comes with usually getting too loud.
