Thank you. They are excellent headphones. Any time you google "What headphones to buy for <$>" you will see these recommended up until about $200. Unfortunately, I liked them so much that I wondered what was beyond them and ended up getting more headphones and it put these out of a job.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50 (curled cable, 06/22/2014) - $75 shipped
These were just shy of being 1 year old when I replaced them. They've been in a box and waiting to ship since I listed them. They were not my main headphone so they are broken in without being broken down.
That's what I thought :/
I thought the AMD fan boys were in their typical circle jerk when they said the competition would be twice the cost of the 8350.
Im sure the Haswell i7 outperforms it but from what I see it's not by a massive margin.
What would the next logical jump be when coming from an overclocked AMD 8350(4.7ghz)?
The chip would be paired with a 290x that will probably be sticking around for a year or two. At least until the 300 series comes out AND decreases in price a bit.

Bought the card less than 6 months ago (11/29/14). Runs very cool (55c).

Good luck. I had mine up for sale, still shrink wrapped. After having it listed for a long time I could only get $35 out of it. I used a different router (same model) and I was very happy with the performance.
I'm in the same boat with my AMD 8350. I'm using Prime95 because it has what I've always used but I do see some conflicting information. I also just ran it for an hour and it failed then I immediately re-ran it and it's been going fine for 3 hours.
Are there any resources on overclocking an A4-5300 (or anything close)? I'm having trouble even finding the max temperature. So far I'm at 3.9ghz running Prime95 with a max socket temp of 48c and core temps of 35c. That seems awfully low so I would love to throw some more voltage at it and see...
Did you look in to the NH-U14S? The [H] review (and some others) say it does better than the NH-D14. I just picked one up and it's awesome. Keeps my 8350 (4.5ghz @ 1.38v CPUZ) at 40c (Prime95) when my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO would be at 53c. I'm in the process of overclocking it more and it...
