EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-1996-KR 6GB HYBRID GAMING,
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Its been said that this card is overkill for 1080p, and that's what I've been seeing first hand. I'm upgrading from an EVGA GeForce GTX 660 and while that card would be adequate for 1080p @ 60fps, I would need to do a lot of tweaking in game to get it running like that. However since upgrading all I have done is max out settings and enjoyed 100+fps. I've been putting the card through its paces with GTA V, Killing Floor 2, Dying Light, etc. I'm starting to think its time to start searching for a good 1440p monitor. In terms of temperatures, it idles in the low 30s and during gameplay might hit the mid to high 40s. I am still tuning my fan setup to strike the optimal balance between noise and cooling.

Cons: It is expensive, but I would like to preface it by saying Newegg will price match if you find it cheaper elsewhere. I was able to submit a price match request and get the difference on a Newegg gift card the next day.

Other Thoughts: I am extremely pleased with the performance of this card. If the price continues to drop, I may be looking into getting another one of these cards to do SLI.

5 out of 5 eggs A real workhorse of a motherboard 10/26/2015

This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I tend to plan my builds with the long game in mind, so I prize longevity and durability. I do not have any doubts that I can get a good 5+ years of heavy use out of this motherboard. It overclocks very easy, I was able to get my Intel Core i7 5960x to a stable 4.4GHz (your mileage may very and always keep the silicon lottery in mind). XMP made the G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series F4-3000C15Q-16GRBB very easy to use, just choose the proper XMP profile and you're done! This motherboard is loaded with fan headers which helps to accommodate the Corsair H105 and EVGA Geforce GTX 980 Ti Hybrid.

Cons: For some it would be the weight, the backplate is very solid and quite heavy for something that's not supposed to be gym equipment :p

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with the motherboard, if you are looking for something that is solid and no nonsense, you can't go wrong with this motherboard.

G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Memory Kit Model F4-3000C15Q-16GRBB

Pros: Works great with the Asus X99 Sabertooth, just install and choose the XMP profile.

Cons: Can't complain much, I haven't run into many problems with it.

Other Thoughts: I paid over $200 when this was new, its now at $154.99, time to get another set!
