Pros: 1 tb
Cons: Just so someone isn't surprised like i was, even though it has been mentioned, This drive did not improve my windows performance raiting.
Other Thoughts: Using this as my only hdd in my computer, windows rates it at 5.9 , even though its 7200rpm 64mb cahce.
This may be off putting to some, but to me it doesn't matter at all, this is a great hard drive with excellent performance, boot up time improved and so has launching game launchers and even other programs.
This is the first HDD I have had around 1TB so i can't compare to other competitors, however even if the 8gb flash is irrelevant to you, the 7200rpm, 64mb 1TB at this price-point is a wonderful deal.
(side note - I decided to go with his over the WD [black 1tb 7200rpm] because a lot of their reviews showed many DOA's recently , so far i am very pleased i went with Seagate.)
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: Very spacious
Fans aren't bad, plus they ate quiet
Extremely light for the size
Installing optical drive was a breeze, the hdd docks a bit confusing at first but once you figure it out you realize how awesome it is, just take both side panels off for easy wiring
Cons: The screws for side panel have long threads just be careful with them till you get the hang of it.
The big side fan is the only fan that makes any noise that I can tell.
The finish I assumed would be gloss however it is more of a flat finish, which will leave fingerprints and smudges easy so just go at it with clean hands
Other Thoughts: If you buy this for the room and airflow you won't regret it, also visually pleasing.
Some pictures make the fans look blue but they ate intact white LEDs not blue at all. Still looks good though.
Pros: Looks cool
Cheap sale price + rebate
It does the job.
PCI-3 ( not like it matters)
When i purchased this I was looking for a cheap temporary upgrade because I plan on buying a better graphics card after the fourth quarter. So far it has exceeded my expectations and is a solid card to add to your collection.
It was a simple install for both hardware and driver software. Looks good and has a decent quality fan, which sometimes gets running pretty good but is still pretty quiet.
After being impress by this performance for such a cheap price(sale + rebate price was only 49.99) I was wishing I could buy another to pair up but it does not have CrossFireX Support.
Other Thoughts: It is a solid card to use for mid level performance,
A good temporary upgrade until you can afford something better or get something with CrossFireX / SLI Support.
Definitely worth grabbing it if on sale/rebate offer, otherwise save for a better card.
