EVGA 04G-P4-2686-KR GeForce GTX 680 w/ Backplate 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The card kept temps around 50=55c on 60-75% load (Diablo 3, LoL, WoW...) without having to adjust fan curve or fan RPM.
Kept extremely clean spite living in a smoking environment, cyclone fan I think helped rather than a traditional fan.
Dual DVi, HDMI and Display Port... yeah, that's nice.

Cons: None.
Had to remove the card for my GTX 690. This is a sad,sad day.

Other Thoughts: This is a great card, look for one used if you need an upgrade, I'm sure you'll find the used prices fit for an older card but it sure keeps up.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL

Pros: I was always a Crucial guy until my Ballistix RAM took a dump on me twice (thanks to RMA). I purchased some DDR2 a few years back and GSkill had a great price. I've loved that GSkill RAM as it has given me no issues in ~3 years so I decided to purchase some additional GSkill for my new build. I'm not sure how helpful this review will be but I wanted to point out that the RAM arrived working and has not given me any issues in the week I've owned them. I had to set the proper timings, speed and voltage on my Asus FX990 board for this RAM.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Second set of GSkill RAM I've purchased after moving form Crucial and I'm a GSkill fan still.

4 out of 5 eggs Stock Fans LOUD AS SHI 11/24/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80 (CWCH80) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: According to the Asus "Thermal Radar" I'm at 32c on all cores running at 4.3 (AMD FX8350). I've got the H80 set on fan speed of 2 out of 3 on the block and it appears the two 120mm fans are not speed controlled and just blast 100% full time? Either way, they sound like jet engines and the girlfriend refuses to sleep when my computers on. I highly suggest you purchase new fans. I've just purchased these: and a pair of these: I'm going to see which fans are more quiet. If the corsair fans can compete with the NF-P12's then I'm going to keep the corsairs just to have the rubber buffer and the nice color rings as I'm using a case that's open (Thermaltake 10GT). Do not tighten your bracket too tight if using AMD bracket, the tabs bend. I think another reviewer said this too.

TLDR; 32c medium load (GW2, XP VM..) FX8350. Stock fans are ungodly loud, it's a MUST to purchase quieter fans unless your rig is in your neighbors house then I guess it wont effect you in your bedroom.

Cons: AMD Bracket tabs can be tightened too tight and bend, don't tighten your bracket too much. Stock fans could propel a B52 bomber and sound like it too.

Other Thoughts: None.
