295x2

XFX Core Edition Radeon R9 295x2 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9-295X-8QFA
XFX Core Edition Radeon R9 295x2 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9-295X-8QFA

Pros: This is a FAST card! I had a coolermaster 750 PSU. It ran fine but I invested in a EVGA 1300 to be safe. After re-installing drivers I ran Firestrike. With my old 2500k@4gig I scored 13700. Runs at the highest 59°C in BF4. Hope they come down in price to get a 2nd one. But I would need another PSU :-( lol

Cons: I had a lot of stuttering in BF4. Changed drivers. Finally unparked the CPU cores and problem fixed!

Pros: It fits well and you can adjust it to support where you need the support. It has a rubber sticker to keep from hurting the video card's finish. The first pic is the support bar only. Second one is with the Zotac 3080ti holo lights on too.

Cons: The only con I could find is it might block some of the air from the big case door fan. But I saw no dif in temps after I installed the support. The RGB lights look really kewl reflecting off the door fan.

Overall Review: Well worth the money to stop possible damage to your mobo's PCI-e slot. I would buy again!

Zotac 3080ti Holo review

ZOTAC AMP Holo GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 Video Card ZT-A30810F-10P
ZOTAC AMP Holo GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 Video Card ZT-A30810F-10P

Pros: Worked great! No problems with drivers or installation. Overclocks great too!

Cons: Very pricey, but they are all overpriced right now. Got it at MSRP on the shuffle. Least half the money didn't go to a scalper.

Overall Review: In games it overclocks it's self to 2010mhz on the GPU Not the stock (1710) Temps never exceeded 71° The Firestorm software is a little buggy. It crashes out of the software sometime while using it. I've have the 3080ti for a week now and it performs in line with the youtube benchmarks even with my 9900k. I can't hear the fans till the speed reaches 80%... The fans usually run at 60 to 70% in games.

9900k

Intel Core i9 9th Gen - Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz (5.0 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 95W BX80684I99900K Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630

Pros: Runs great, nothing to complain about. Ran 14,000 in Firestrike with my old 2500k and 295x2 Vcard. With the 9900k and 295x2 I got 19,000. I thought that was a good improvement using the same Vcard.

Cons: I would definitely buy again!

Overall Review: Maybe i can get another 10 years out of this CPU :-)

Asus Prime Z390-A

ASUS Prime Z390-A LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z390 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Everything went perfect! No problems whatsoever with the Asus Z390-A. I installed Win10 fresh install, and i've not had any problems. The features on this motherboard, like auto overclocking, are way more advanced than my old MSI 7673 i upgraded from. Gave my old board and 2500k to my GF to upgrade her Q6600 dual core intel cpu...Long overdue huh...:-)

Cons: I miss Win7...But I've got DX12 if I ever get an upgrade for my R9 295x2 Vcard.

Overall Review: This motherboard is just what i wanted...Non of the bells and whistles I didn't need like, (blutooth and WiFi) And it works!

EasyN Wireless LED 2-Way Audio Network IR Nightvision Camera

Pros: The picture looks good for a 640x480 res. Easy to pan and tilt from I.E. Night vision in the house has a good black and white picture up to 30ft. It will take pictures of motion and email them to you. They connect to my wireless router from 30ft without a problem.

Cons: After spending most of 2 days trying to set the first one up, I set the 2nd one up in 15mins. Youtube and google had good info on setup.

Overall Review: I'm happy with the purchase, just wish they were weather proof.
