ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Memory slots not working are 90% of the time the fault of pins bent in the CPU socket. Check the socket pins to see if they line up perfectly, it may have been touched accidently during install.
ESPECIALLY the problem if you recently cleaned and replaced the thermal interface material in the cpu sink area.
Also watch out for electrostatic discharge this time of year with dry north winds following storms. It is killer of boards and devices, that is why there is different color plastic foam and bubble wrap packaging, for ESP protection, use it. Ground yourself.

Cons: These boards from the top twenty companies are checked methodically to eliminate the possibility of bent pins before shipping, so they KNOW you did it if it is a problem. Not a problem on new devices, but if repackaged like open box could be prob, tho they inspect for that.

Other Thoughts: Stuff happens too, sometimes just a little lightning strike on plane during shipment will cause a whole shipment to go bad on like mbs and storage devices. The cargo holds aren't as protected as the electronics panels on plane.

EVGA  02G-P4-3763-RX  GeForce GTX 760 Dual  2GB  256-Bit  GDDR5  PCI Express 3.0  SLI Support w/ ACX Cooler Video Card Factory Refurbished
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I just got off the phone with EVGA Tech support, and the rating of this card got confused with the GTX780, as that is what the description of this card is on support site product spec.

NOT 2304 cores like advertised. IS NOT A 780 style core.

Cons: Still a good card, I don't know what the dual is referring to, unless it is the ACX fans....

IT just has the regular 1152 cores, half what is advertised. He confirmed it and will have the site changes at EVGA. They were easy to get a hold of. I have used their products for years and they try to do a good job.

Other Thoughts: Stuff happens. Just remember if it is too good to be true, it usually isn't true....

EVGA  02G-P4-3763-RX  GeForce GTX 760 Dual  2GB  256-Bit  GDDR5  PCI Express 3.0  SLI Support w/ ACX Cooler Video Card Factory Refurbished
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This card seemed a misprint with 2304 cores, but a look at specs says for some reason, it IS a dual core 2GB RAM card of the 760 series.
Look for reviews online for performance from sites you trust like Anand and Tom's Hardware for two, or Guru 3d for another.

Cons: Seems too good to be true.... but seems to be true.... donno

Double the cudas, but the single card RAM, which is what you would have in SLI of two standard gTX760 cards, so you would have quad SLI with two slots used in SLI....... hmmmm.

Other Thoughts: It is like using 2ea 760 2GB RAM cards in SLI as far as I can see.

For a great discount price. Compares in some ways to a much higher quality card.
