EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3978-KR 4GB FTW+ GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Odb fans is awesome!
- Quiet under load
- Extremely good framerates during game sessions at 1440p

Cons: It's not a 980Ti lol ;-)

Other Thoughts: If you're not gaming at 4K or at 144hz then this a great card. I use Nvidia to optimize my graphics settings and I always see 60fps+ on BF4 and WItcher 3. No complaints about the graphics either. It's also very quiet under load in my NCASE mITX case. However, the biggest plus for me is 0db. I work from home on my gaming rig and it's great to basically here NOTHING from my computer when I am working. Yeah! Highly recommend this GPU.

EVGA Hadron Air Mini-ITX Chassis Black with 500W 80Plus Gold Power Supply (110-MA-1001-K1)

Pros: The size is perfect for an mITX build! EVGA CS is second to none. I also like the window too.

Cons: Other than getting 3 bad PSUs in a row the only real complaint that I still have is that the PSU is loud at idle. While gaming or listening to music you won't really hear it , it is still annoying that you can hear the PSU fan.

Other Thoughts: The first PSU ticked before warming up, the second PSU ticked and made grinding noise under load, and the third PSU did not tick, but was very loud. My score would have stayed at one (see my original review), but EVGA has truly made every attempt to make it better. It is finally better (no ticking, grinding, or squealing), but the PSU fan that they have in this thing (even with their supposed custom fan profile) is still loud to the naked ear when the case and gfx fans are running on low speed. I have gamed with and without headphones on and you can't hear the PSU when you are doing that . Since I am not always gaming or listening to music, I couldn't give it more than three stars since I know EVGA can do better than this when designing an mITX case. I am sure the next gen case will have many of people's complaints addressed.

Pros: The size is great!

Cons: The PSU that came with the Hadron Air ticked really badly before it warmed up and only after it warmed up did the ticking of the PSU stop. I had the PSU RMA'd twice. The first one not only ticked it also grind and squealed. I returned that one and the third one did not tick at all, but it squealed and grind so loudly it was bothering my dogs and I could hear it through my closed back gaming headset.

I like the size and the CS service from EVGA is great BUT I cannot recommend this case until they fix the PSU issue.

Other Thoughts: Like I said the size is great and EVGA has really good CS.
