This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G LE
Pros: Runs every game I throw at it on Max settings, 1080p. The fans don't spin unless i reach 40c. Increases lifespan of the card, and not to mention absolute silence. MSi hasn't failed me yet.
Cons: Purchased this card in Sept 2015. Previously I had no issues, however, I had this card in an older HAF 922, which had very dusty and loud 200mm Fans. I have recently installed this card into a Fractal Design R5, and the coil whine is horrendous. It might just be my card, I haven't seen any other complaints regarding coil whine. I am removing 1 egg from a previous 5 Egg rating.
Other Thoughts: Upgraded from an MSI GTX760. I'm very pleased with my upgrade. Will definitely stick with MSI.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fractal Design Dynamic GP-14 Black/White Hydraulic Bearing 140mm Case Fan
Pros: Matches the 2 fans that came with my Define R5. Plugged in, works, whisper quiet.
Cons: none at this time
Other Thoughts: unfortunate it didn't arrive the same day my Define R5 did. but, they came from opposite sides of the US, so it's understandable. Only took a few minutes to cleanup the wires after installing this fan, thanks to the cable management of the R5READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, color scheme, uefi.
Cons: from day one of installation there has been nothing except problem after problem. currently i'm battling a random restart and/or complete system freeze and Corrupted Bios. Sent a request for RMA to gigabyte. Lets see how long it takes for them to answer/honor their warranty.
Other Thoughts: first and last time buying gigabyte. Should have stuck with my gut and not take any chances with this purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
