Most Favorable Review

Excellent CPU!

Intel Core i9-10850K Comet Lake 10-Core 3.6 GHz LGA 1200 125W Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630 - BX8070110850K
Intel Core i9-10850K Comet Lake 10-Core 3.6 GHz LGA 1200 125W Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630 - BX8070110850K

Pros: It's got 10 cores! Overclocking was easy but I got the short end on the silicon as I was only able to squeeze 4.9GHz on all cores at a descent voltage. Coming from a 7700K it was a slight improvement in gaming and a significant in workload.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: 10/10 would recommend if you need a boost in workload horsepower!

OUTSTANDING!!!

Intel Core i7 7th Gen - Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor
Intel Core i7 7th Gen - Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor

Pros: Very fast and was easily overclocked to 5Ghz without any issues on the Asus TUF Mark 1. The chips temperatures do not run hot as others have given 1 egg for this. As stated mine is OC'd to 5Ghz and at max load will hit a max of 81celsius. It will idle around 28-31 celsius.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: Recently made the switch from an FX 8350. Was going to upgrade to Ryzen 7 1700x but there was just to many variables unanswered. AMD is still behind the curve and felt more confident going with the tried and true Intel processors. I debated for a few days after the launch of Ryzen and this processor should be a100% pick for any gamer. Do not use the preset 5Ghz profile that most motherboards come with. The voltages are outrageous and in my opinion will significantly reduce the lifespan of the CPU. Do your research and manually overclock.

Excellent product!

Pros: 5 year warranty!!! Components are solid and built to last.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: Get the optional 40mm fan if you will be running water. The 7700k was easily overclocked to 5Ghz in the UEFI BIOS. On a side note, do not use the 5Ghz profile from ASUS. The voltages are outrageous. You can achieve 5Ghz at significantly lower and safer voltage.

Great product so far!!

Corsair Hydro Series H115i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm CW-9060027-WW
Corsair Hydro Series H115i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm CW-9060027-WW

Pros: Keeps the overclocked fx8350 temperatures where it needs to be.

Cons: Nothing so far!

Overall Review: Install was a little tricky mainly because the pump/fans are powered by a SATA cable (not listed in description) which I did not plan on. Fans can get a little noisy when under load but if you game/use a headset when computing its not noticeable. You must download the Corsair Link software because the BIOS has no control over the pump or fans.......its all controlled through the Link software. Will update if any problems arise.

Outstanding case!

Pros: Room for anything and highly customizable to your liking! Cable management is a breeze with this case.

Cons: Absolutely nothing!

Overall Review: Wish it would come with 2 SSD mounts instead of 1.
