Acer XG270HU 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price (got mine for $300)

Cons: The stand is just "ok"

Other Thoughts: I had to RMA once for a dead pixel, but other than that I have no complaints. Freesync is truly amazing, but I only wish AMD would make it work on windowed games (not the fault of Acer though).

Running this with an R9 Fury, and it's great. Limited fps to 144 via Crimson as to not exceed the Freesync range, and all is well. No regrets, considering I got it at $300.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazing on an 1440p 144hz Freesync monitor.
Great price/performance vs a Fury X or 980 ti.
Very quiet, fans don't even spin up until it gets "hot". I honestly am not sure I've even heard the fans, but I do wear headphones.
Never seen it even hit 80 C, 75 C is the average in intensive games (like GTA V).

Cons: While overclockable, if I set +100mV, it sets itself back to +96mV every time.
Had problems with fps drops in some games until I added +50% power limit via AMD overdrive.
Fans are perceived by the PC to be at 20% when off (a minor gripe, but I heard there is a fix available even though I can't find the download anywhere).

Other Thoughts: An improved version of this card with a custom PCB came out shortly after I bought this, and it costs less. Wish I would've waited, but it's not a big deal. If you want an R9 Fury, get that improved one instead (it should be better).
I got this with a 1440p 144hz Freesync monitor, and it was definitely worth it (came from 1080p 60hz & an HD 7950).

Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra + Cleaning kit

4 out of 5 eggs Get it if you're delidding 01/10/2016

This review is from: Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra + Cleaning kit

Pros: It works

Cons: Hard to work with
Very hard to clean (seriously, it just beads up and pushes around when using a cloth)
Not very much of the paste for the price at all

Other Thoughts: Have this under the IHS of a delidded 3770k and the temps are not that great (about 80°C max load at 4.4Ghz in a 22°C room). I was going to try a different (non-metallic) paste under the IHS, but this stuff is too hard to remove without getting it everywhere.

EDIT: Replaced my cooler, and now I'm running 4.5Ghz on an NH-U12S with temperature peaks at about 77 C. Does the trick, but still hard to work with..
