What do you guys think?
High performance works well, I considered using the FX-8350, but this has more power, but it is $50 more.
I'd like so more comments about FX-8350 vs Intel i5 4690k :)
I love this cooler! I originally was going to get the classic 212 Hyper EVO but a good fellow on the forums suggested this instead, I'm so glad I went with it! Looks extremely futuristic and works well. It's HUGE compared to a stock cooler though, I'm not sure how big it is compared to the 212 Hyper EVO, never had one.
Originally was going to get a Gaming 6 but my dad didn't mind paying an extra $50 for the extra featuresr this Mobo came with compared with the 6. Personally, it didn't matter too much to me. I'm really satisfied with it.
It's RAM, looks really sleek, but you can't really see it that well in the case where I got it positioned. But it's defintely doing its job :)
WOW! This is my first time ever getting an SSD and I'm already addicted, every PC or Laptop I get in the future I am making sure I got an SSD as my boot drive, what a difference! My 6 year old desktop had a boot time of 5-10 minutes. Now it's 5-10 seconds LOL
First one came in DOA. I got a replacement in 4 days. Huge amounts of storage for super cheap, and super fast too! What could I possibly say that's bad about this?
This Newegg review literally took the words out of my mouth.
Pros: Overall better card than the GTX 970 at same price. Very good cooling, only 10*C difference between Idle and heavy load. Quiet. Great for higher resolutions
Cons: Massive power drain (it's an amd) 850W should be plenty to counteract that though!
Notes: Fairly high idle temp at 60*C because by default it doesn't run the fans while idling. Changable with MSI Afterburner though :)
Sleek, easy to handle with, higly customizable, can see all parts through the window. Although it's HUGE it barely fit where my old desktop fitted.
Top tier for a reason, it works really well and so easy to manage with. I had a nonmodular one for my old desktop, annyoing to deal with. Not only it's easier it looks better too.
First one came in DOA. I got a replacement in 4 days as well. It's an optical drive, it works at least the 2nd one haha.
Not going to Windows 8 or 10 unless absolutely necessary Windows 7 is just a masterpiece has so many features and feels so sleek unlike 8/10. Windows 10 might be a lot better experience than 8, but I still don't have any desire to try. Unless alot of comments say it's REALLY good.
Wireless Network Adapter
Wow! It works well! Across the entire house I'm getting 9 GBs/s so about up to 72 megabits whilst my internet connection is 105mb download/20mb upload. I also have a really good router. Though I could spent a whole day wiring it through the walls across the whole house I'll sacrifice ~25 megabits of speed.
Took a while to get used to at first, but worth it! I love the backlit lights! Never had one for a desktop, it's a feature I always wished I could take from my laptop to my desktop. How can you not like a mechanical keyboard that has lights? :)
Wow! This thing is so comfortable and customizable, has weights but I didn't put any in cause I like my mouse light.
Wish the max volume on them was a little higher, usually not needed but there are some really soft video on the interwebs and you really need to crank up the volume somtimes, but amazingly comforatable for only $50 I personally think this is a steal since it's usally $80.
