Most Favorable Review

Incredible CPU, exceeds expectations with power to spare in every task.

Intel Core i9-11900K - Core i9 11th Gen Rocket Lake 8-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811900K
Intel Core i9-11900K - Core i9 11th Gen Rocket Lake 8-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811900K

Pros: - Lightning fast power delivery on the fly, out of box. - 5.1GHz 6 core 5.3GHz 2 core stable turbo boost with Intel ABT - Integrated GPU allows for temporary use without a dGPU, the iGPU is fairly capable for moderate gaming and media.

Cons: - Get a BIG cooler. You will need it for this puppy. She cranks out some thermals!

Overall Review: - I absolutely recommend this as a CPU upgrade for anyone running an older 10th gen CPU and is looking to peak out their performance.

Most Critical Review

Faulty RAM (sadly)

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 5333 (PC4 42700) Desktop Memory Model F4-5333C22D-16GVK
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 5333 (PC4 42700) Desktop Memory Model F4-5333C22D-16GVK

Pros: I love G.Skill, and this ram looked fantastic, I had no need for RGBs so this worked to my advantage reducing power costs in my system.

Cons: Upon receiving the G.Skill Ripjaws V 5333, the ram failed to operate correctly in XMP, manually setting the frequency and timings also failed to work, further investigation lead to one stick was able to hold the XMP profile, and operate at 5333, while the other failed ram tests at 2133MHz and would not post with XMP active. I was very disappointed in G.Skill however the return went well.

Overall Review: I am still using G.Skill, and will still be purchasing more G.Skill products in the future. Defects happen and I was able to get a refund with full return and hold no bad sentiments towards G.Skill.

Perfect for my needs

GIGABYTE B460M DS3H AC-Y1 LGA 1200 Intel B460 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard, With I/O Backplate
GIGABYTE B460M DS3H AC-Y1 LGA 1200 Intel B460 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard, With I/O Backplate

Pros: I have set this up currently with a Celeron G5905 and an nVidia GTX 980, with 16GB ram and a 256GB ssd, perfect for what i need, will be adding hard drives for large capacity storage. Came with everything, antenna, IO, Sata cables, everything you need. Socket was pristine with no damage, CPU installation was a breeze and the CPU cover was in place upon arrival.

Cons: Not one!

Overall Review: Built in Wifi takes the cake, can be easily upgraded to Wifi 6E if need be, great IO options, and front panel connectors. Offers some CPU overclocking features, which I do not plan to use, and plenty of bios configurations for your needs.

Shes a tight fit..

NZXT Kraken X73 360mm - RL-KRX73-01 - AIO RGB CPU Liquid Cooler - Rotating Infinity Mirror Design - Powered By CAM V4 - RGB Connector - 3 x Aer P120 120mm Radiator Fans LGA 1700 Compatible

Pros: Looks absolutely incredible, very nice braided hoses, sweet RGB lights and logo.

Cons: The cabling kinda sucks, 3 individual cables coming out of the unit, in a somewhat awkward position. The only options I had to mount the unit would either cover my ram, or twist the hoses, or require me to relocate the rad, I was barely able to squeeze the hoses between the IHS and pump. BARELY, which of course makes the cables cover the I/O cover and other IHS.

Overall Review: Overall the product does do the job, it tames my i9 for what I do and maintains good solid temps at equilibrium. I would probably recommend a different cooler for the CPU I am using however. I would definitely change the cable management of this cooler.

Great TV!

Sceptre 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV
Sceptre 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV

Pros: Gorgeous Display quality, I am quite impressed with its picture quality. It is nice and lightweight so easy to move around, and looks very nice where my old tv was

Cons: Not as many inputs and outputs as my old TV, the cheesie stand that comes with it is very poor, however who cares about how the TV is being held up as long as it doesnt fall apart

Overall Review: Fantastic buy, I am very satisfied, thank you again Newegg, you guys are life savers!

Gorilla Glue!?!?

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPI-B
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPI-B

Pros: Affordable cost, reputable company, powerful RAM with high threshold for overclocking

Cons: What on earth do they use to apply their heatsinks, I attempted to remove the heatsink on one of the units, and a dram chip popped off, thank you newegg for your RMA policy, i have NEVER had an issue swapping a heatsink, letalone pop off a chip while doing so.

Overall Review: I have seen this ram perform, and was excited to get it installed, realizing unfortunately that the CPU heatsink i purchased covered my first RAM slot, a low profile heat spreadder would work but not the monsters on this chip. G.Skill needs to rethink their heat spreadders, i dont get why they had to be sticky taped to the chips.
