PowerColor DEVIL AXR9 270X 2GBD5-A2DHE Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner

Pros: Excellent card. Ghost looks excellent. Got rid of my WOW 25 man raid lag. Idles at 31c max observed in game was 60c.

Cons: Not really a con but this card is HUGE. Fit in my rosewill challenger case with not much to spare.

Other Thoughts: First powercolor card and so far it's better then I expected.

Pros: wasn't listed as compatible on motherboard site but did boot up on the first try.

Cons: motherboard detected at 1333 but a quick bios trip solved that.

Other Thoughts: May buy another set to boost ram to 32gig :P

GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Booted up first try with an fx8350. No stability issues. I don't overclock so I can't comment there. All in all a good board for the price. Would buy again

Cons: Ram clocked back to 1333 but a quick trip to bios and problem solved. not enough of an issue to take an egg as a lot of boards do this.

Other Thoughts: well laid out board. I like the front panel headers being by the 24 pin. Helps keep the wires cleaner looking not being stretched to the bottom.
