ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: TONS of features
xfire/SLI capable
Native SATA 6 Gb/s
USB 3.0 connector
Supports high bandwidth RAM

Cons: First board gave a CPU error. Emailed ASUS RMA department and listed all steps taken to isolate the issue. They took the board back and returned it (or maybe a new one, idk). Hooked it up with no issues whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Powerful features and a good RMA experience. Docked one egg as the board made it through Quality Control with an issue. However, ASUS was prompt in getting the board returned.

Also, check the RAM against what is compatible with this mobo to ensure a proper POST and functionality of the baord.

COUGAR CF-V14HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Silent
Moves tons of air
Static pressure for mounting with filters
Finally comes in Orange

Cons: The price. But, hey, you pay for quality parts.

Other Thoughts: I bought these based on experience with my CF-V12HB. I love the power and silence that they offer. I have noticed about a 5 Celsius drop in my video card temps and about 1 Celsius drop in CPU temp (going to closed loop. On air now). These replaced 2 Antec 140mm intake fans, and wow. Nice difference. Case is much more silent.

GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great performing card. Cooler only takes up the normal 2 slots instead of 3. Came with 3 free games.
It's one of those guys that has your back in a fight, no matter what.

Cons: Not as quiet as I thought it would have been (docked an egg for that). Long. Measure your clearance if you are in a mid sized case!
Does not make waffles or french toast.

Other Thoughts: Came from a 560Ti with the Arctic Cooler II aftermarket cooler on it. I never heard the fans (of the 560Ti) make a noise unless I cranked them up myself. But this 770 does dance circles around the 560Ti. I ended up using my old card as dedicated PhysX. Did I need it? Probably not. Is it nice when things get hectic in Metro 2033? Yes.
Being that I have another card right below the 770, it can get noisy. So I am thinking that I may just forgo the PhysX and sell my old card.
May get a 2nd one for SLI down the road, but might end up getting one with a quieter cooler and same clock speeds to be the top card.
