EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Running with stock ACX fan at +114mhz, effectively running at 1429mhz boost clock. With 1664cores, and at that speed, you do get quite a lot for your money. I am running Witcher 3 on ULTRA graphics and on 3x27inch screen in 5760x1080 resolution with minimal to no graphic lags.

Cons: I've read that 1 of the copper pipe is misaligned on the card, reducing the cooling potential of the card (evga only). Might be true but still perform amazing and can be OCed easily with no risk and a minimum of efforts, so not really worth taking an egg.

Other Thoughts: If you run the card stock and try that same Witcher3, Ultra, 5760x1080, you will get a 10% of the action in the <30fps range, which can be deceiving. Yet, after some OCing, I would say that only 3-4% might not meet some people's "fluidity" expectation. If you want 60fps+ with that kind of configuration and that kind of demanding game, go 980 or sli970...

Crucial BX100 CT250BX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Raid build - Benchmarks included 02/12/2015

This review is from: Crucial BX100 CT250BX100SSD1 2.5" 250GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Those Crucial BX100 will give you a ton for your bucks, period.

You are thinking of putting them in Raid and you want some numbers? Here you go:

134,000 substained IOPS at 4K Random QD32 READS -AND- WRITES when running 3 of them in RAID0

Sequencial Read : 1600MB/s
Sequencial Write: 1059MB/s
4K Random QD32 Read: 520MB/s (133,000+ iops)
4K Random QD32 Write: 512.7MB/s (131,000+ iops)

This 3 new drives are 65% to 300% faster than my 3x Sandisk Extreme2 on the same controller (MSI G43 motherboard) using half of the SATA 3 for each raid build (but note that the Sandisk are my C drives and formatted in 4k Blocks vs 64k Blocks for the crucial)

I had 130gb worth of VMs on my C drive and exported the 8 of them simultaniously to my new array in less than 3minutes.


Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: At the time of the purchase, I truly hesitate between Crucial BX100 and the Samsung Evo 850. I believe that I would have achieve greater numbers with the Samsung 850 but not by much. At almost 30% price difference, and buying 3 more drives for my tower, I did save about 120$ for the whole setup, which must be taken into account here. Today, after benching the Crucials, I have no regrets!

ASUS VE278Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price / spec is amazing, really good value, amazing for gaming and every day work

if they don't break........

Cons: Bought two of those less than 6 months ago. Left green already has a green burned pixel, right screen has a red burned pixel....

Other Thoughts: Consider buying with full protection that cover return shipping because they are crazy expensive to send back, which... at the end of day, means that you will probably stuck with burned pixel like me :'(
