Pros: * Upgraded from MSI 760 to 1070. Roughly the same TDP power, still almost silent, and so much faster.
Cons: * Someday the video driver madness will end, but not this day. (Just the usual booting into safe mode, DDU driver removal, latest driver installation process, but still annoying.)
* It is not cheap.
Other Thoughts: This cooler design doesn't blow out the back of the case, so your system air flow has to work with that. I prefer these custom cooler solutions as they tend to work much better than the reference design. I pretty much never hear this card, which makes it a good match with the rest of my very quiet system.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Works like it should
Cons: * Six pin ATX power cable was barely long enough.
Other Thoughts: I have had good luck with Seasonic power supplies, and this one continues the tradition of working well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Simple black look.
* Easy to build in.
* Decent cooling for basic system.
* Seems well built for the price
* Screwless HDD/DVD mounts
* Front USB 3
Cons: * Dust filters don't come out.
* I am not sure I'm going to end up with positive pressure without moving included fan around.
* Case fans aren't the quietest, but stock CPU cooler is louder anyway.
Other Thoughts: For the simple gaming system I built in this I would have preferred to use the same TJ08 I have for myself, (better cooling, completely silent, removable dust filter, and smaller), but this saved a few bucks which mattered more for the person that's getting it.
It is easier to build in, works fine, and has a little extra space.
