NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect!!! 05/15/2014

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: This thing fit perfect on my Asus GTX 780ti Direct CU II OC. Paired it up with the Corsair H90 and some Enzotech BCC9 VGA Cooler pure copper VRAM Heatsinks. Cooler Master Storm Trooper Case sports it perfect. Before with the Direct Cu II Cooer I was getting a load temp of 80-81c for BF4 after a few hours of gameplay with a 44C at idle with fans on auto and VRM temps of 95c-98c. This card was really heating up my room. After the Kraken G10 install with the H90 with fans in push pulll and Enzotech Ramsinks I get idle of 31c-33c and a load temp of 48c-50c after several hours of BF4 with max VRM temps of 75c to 80c. Keep in mind the Asus GTX780ti Direct CU II has a stock VRM heatsink. This is a premium since the reference 780ti has the VRM bare to the reference heatsink. The NZXT Kraken G10 Backplate fit perfectly over the ASUS GTX 780ti Direct CU II back plate. All assembled perfectly around the back plate from ASUS and tightened down nicely. No sag in the card.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This more than exceeded my expectations and now I know my card will last much longer than with the regular heatsink. Do yourself a favor and get one of these!!!

Pros: Came from two GTX660 ti's in Sli and wow this card just blows them way. Solid FPS. No dips or lag in BF4 maxed out at 1080p

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I spent the money on this card and sold my other cards and now I am really feeling what gaming should be like.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Windows 8.1 Pro 01/12/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: Fast boot times, driver compatibility, easy to install on a new system. Cheap as an upgrade if you bought a windows 7 pc in the upgrade period.

Cons: I don't want to get into the whole Microsoft story from the last 10 years but. Windows XP is where Microsoft really caught all of us PC gamers with a solid system. Despite XP 64 Bit being great but plagued with driver issues it was a step towards performance and expansion. When Vista came out it was buggy and slowed down a lot of systems but offered direct x 10. Some people upgraded their systems to better run Vista for it's gaming beauty. Those of us that hated Vista for it's slowness and compatibility issues waited for something to happen. Microsoft came out with Windows 7 that offered better speed than Windows XP and fixed the issues of Windows Vista. The power desktop users fell in love with Windows 7 because it worked soo well. Then in 2012 came windows 8. I agree that Microsoft had to evolve into the tablet OS to survive but they did so making a grave mistake. They took away the option to install a Windows that best suited your needs and took that decision over for you. You were forced into a Tablet interface with no Aero glass and a 2nd Class desktop Hybrid environment. I dont care about Metro or tiles. If I wanted an Xbox menu I would get an Xbox. If I want to use a tablet interface I would use my touch screen on my all in one system I use. Microsoft needs to learn from this mistake and issue an OS that allows users to install the user interface of their choice based off their needs. It wouldnt be too difficult to let users configure this with options during install. I think Windows 8.1 works amazing on tablet PCs and laptops with touch screens. On the other hand my big gaming rig that runs Windows 8.1 64bit is truly incompatible with a ton of software I use. FFXI doesnt run right. Windower doesnt work. For some reason tabbing out of games to the desktop has a huge delay. I smell and feel the hybrid OS causing these issues.

Other Thoughts: If Microsoft does what they have done in the past and releases an OS that they actually programmed by the demands of their Users they will issue Windows 9 with selectable touchscreen option interface OS or a pure desktop run OS. Come On Microsoft just use these options and your users will be happy again.
Until Windows 9 I am Permanently downgrading to Windows 7 Pro 64!
