Chip is great

Intel Core i5-11400 - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 1200 65W Intel UHD Graphics 730 Desktop Processor - BX8070811400
Intel Core i5-11400 - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 1200 65W Intel UHD Graphics 730 Desktop Processor - BX8070811400

Pros: Chip is great, Overkill for my application.

Cons: Stock Intel coolers are trash. They never seat properly with the push pin design. Stock cooler runs at 49-60c Idle and its firmly placed on my Cpu. But is it? Its fairly evident when i remove the stock cooler that the thermal paste presses over to one side. Why does Intel make a high tech CPU and pair it with a Stone Age Cooler from the Flintstones ?

Overall Review: 5 stars regardless

Most Critical Review

Pros: Perfect for 13-19" monitors

Cons: Won't hold up my 24" Dell So an Empty EVGA Power Supply Box holds my Monitor up

Overall Review: Doesn't matter how many clicks you Adjust it......30 seconds later Slump

This hen only gives 4 Eggs

EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 220-P2-1600-X1 80+ PLATINUM 1600W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 220-P2-1600-X1 80+ PLATINUM 1600W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: Overall Great EVGA PSU. Powers 3 x RTX 3080's. Its nicer than my G+ Supernova, It's heavier and runs much cooler + it's more Efficient. I have no complaints other than.....

Cons: All of the PCIE cables are 8 x 8 + 6 pin. Whoa, no 8 x 2 (8) pin cables anymore. The RTX 2070's are all gone from my pc's. What in the world am i going to do with 8 x 8 + 6 pin PCIE Cables ? I had to spend an additional 50 Bucks on Amazonia for 16awg PCIE dual 8 Cables. Major Disappointment. Therefor my hen took away an Egg but she really needed to take 2 Eggs for that Bummer.

Overall Review: All in all I would buy it again if it's on sale. Factor in spending another 50 Bucks

Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone.

Subpar Cooling Solution

ASRock Radeon RX 6700 XT Challenger D Gaming Graphic Card, 12GB GDDR6 VRAM, AMD RDNA2 (RX6700XT CLD 12G)
ASRock Radeon RX 6700 XT Challenger D Gaming Graphic Card, 12GB GDDR6 VRAM, AMD RDNA2 (RX6700XT CLD 12G)

Pros: It works

Cons: Runs Hot, I have a Challenger 5700 xt so i know how bad the heatsinks are on them but the new 6700 xt is worse. Its a regular steel plate affixed to the copper heat pipes. Folding at home with the gpu underclocked i'm at 70 C. The vram temps have to be at least 100 C but this info is now hidden. XFX made this same mistake and went back and RMA'D Countless 5700's and put in a full copper heatsink.....Asrock You stink trying to save money with cheap steel plate. This new gpu is Cheap, just like the Challenger before it & The thermal pads are Trash. I don't like it at all. I took mine apart & ordered 1.25mm thermal pads, but it won't help much bcause the heatsink is junk. Mine came installed with 1.5mm pads and the gpu bolts were all loose, There was a huge gap between my die & the Cooler. This is so Cheap to do it right but Asrock you choose to do it wrong !

Overall Review: If i could go back in time i would choose a different 6700 xt like the Asus or XFX

Easy to juice

Pros: Works great. Always keeps a connection as long as your wifi box sends a signal. Never disconnects. I'm not that far from my Router, it's downstairs and the signal is strong enough to reach upstairs. I get full signal or none, none of that half way in between stuff that can drive you nuts.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Would buy again, maybe 1 for my garage soon.
