Pros: you will not find a better single gpu than this. people have also had great luck with these specific cards and getting even more overclock out of them
Other Thoughts: if your going to do aftermarket cooling, go ahead and just get the reference model in the SC version. the SC cards are just hand picked to handle more MHz and usually will overclock higher than the reference models.
I'll be putting the NZXT G10 bracket on mine in a few days and i'll do some real overclocking on it and let you guys know how it goes. i've got high hopes that its going to hit some really nice scores in the benchs
Pros: large case. lots of fans. looks cool. stays cool. the front io has everything i need for my headset to easily connect/disconnect. also has 2 fan controllers that are easy and handy to keep fan noise down when its not needed.
almost everything is metal except the top and front covers.
Cons: the rear 140mm fan supplied is loud. at full speed the 230's are silent. the 140 sounds like a turbine. if your looking for quiet, swap the 140 out for a quieter one.
the dust management is pretty bad. basically none.
Other Thoughts: as with must full tower cases, make sure your cables are long enough.
evga gtx 760 SC
asus p8z77 mobo
8gb gskill ram
240gb samsung 840 pro ssd
Pros: lots of storage. cheap.
Cons: after almost 4 years, she finally kicked the dust. crazy thing though is my other 3 drives, which are MUCH older (IDE drives. its an old system) are still kickin. They also all 3 happen to be western digitals as well. think i just might go with them for my next one.
Other Thoughts: can still access, but i'm getting the click of death. still works somewhat as i'm transferring over some things i want to keep, but other than that its just full of old movies i will probably never watch again. luckily no super important data on there. it has served its purpose.
also somewhat of a worthless review, considering i'm sure this thing is LOOONG discontinued lol
