Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works, quiet, as intended.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Used for a basic media center. One hard drive, HD6670, surfing the web and watching movies. I recommend a 750W or higher for serious gaming/multiple hard drives/6-8 core processor.

HIS IceQ X² Turbo Boost Clock H270XQMT2G2 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Performance is awesome right out of the box. I've bouncing back and forth between 2 crossfired HD6670 cards, or one of those cards and the built in HD6550 in my AMD A8. This would give me better performance depending on the need. This card shatters it. Huge step up. Batman Arkham origins maxed out with all DX11 enhancements at 1680x1050 resolution runs amazingly. That'a as good as my current monitor gets though. Saint's Row IV maxed out, no problem. Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2 both maxed out no problem.

Cons: Not really a con, as it is to be expected, but in my Antec 900 case I had to do a pretty serious reconfiguration to get this beast to fit.

Other Thoughts: Performance for price I have to say I'm very pleased. I went with this one because the Sapphire and ASUS R9 270x both had reviews of not cooperating with the drivers. This one works just fine with Catalyst 13.12. Also I don't expect my rig to run whisper quiet as I work on a budget. When I'm pushing the card I have head phones on, so I'm not sure how loud the fan can get under max load, but I haven't noticed anything louder than the usual amount of noise I get from the 4 case fan and the GEMINII cpu cooler.

Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs First disappointment shopping with newegg 01/10/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Showed up and is what I ordered.

Cons: Showed up damaged, front panel barely hanging on. Also bottom dented to the point where it will not sit flat.

Other Thoughts: Since RMA usually involves paying out of pocket for shipping and this case was only $40, I've decided to take pliers, a hammer, and some super glue to it to try to fix this damage. Also this is probably due to the way that UPS handled the package, but I'm not ruling out damage from the warehouse itself.

I have ordered other cases before and can say with confidence that Thermaltake most definitely skimped out on protective packing to protect the product. This was my first purchase of a Thermaltake product and probably my last.

This is for a build for someone else, so basically I will never know if this case has any redeeming value A) if I can get it sorted, and B) when it is actually used daily.

A very important thing to note is that when the Antec 900 I ordered as my personal case arrived the box had way more visible damage, but the case itself was in perfect condition. So let that speak for itself.
