XFX Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 HD-687A-ZHFC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -

Cons: Update: I checked the rebate status on their website. Apparently someone from their company OPEND MY REBATE, and placed a barcode for an ASUS router (ASUS gx1005b) on my rebate form in place of my proof of purchase. I don't even own the asus router nor the one it labels. There is some FRAUD going on within XFX, or the rebate center that processes their rebates.

I still want my $30.

Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes

3 out of 5 eggs It's alright,..not that great 01/26/2012

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes

Pros: Low profile so it will fit in cases with larger side fans
2 fans in a push pull configuration

Cons: Very hard to install
Does not cool very well
Screws are hard to get to...and they do not really fit into my cooler base (Had to use my own screws)
The bracket that goes on the back of the mother board is a pain. I had to grind 2 flaps off that were meant for intel chips just to get this thing to fit because of my case.

Other Thoughts: I have reseated this thing 4 times and I cannot get my temps below 38C idle. I'm using MX-2 and the 5mm pea technique. I have the push fan blowing at my exhaust fan to blow out the heat easier and my temps are still bad. In Win track case.

In my old pc i had a cooler by scythe which kept me at 28C idle.

Overall this thing is a pain. I would not recommend it to anyone.

PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 700 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ700MXSP)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks nice and sleek
It works

Cons: Short CPU and main ATX connector
Only 2 PCI express 6 pin connectors

Other Thoughts: This is a nice PSU. I bought it to replace the hec 750 watt that blew up on me. One thing about this PSU that makes absolutely no sense to me is the PCI express connnectors. First of all, they are on second cords, with 1 connector on each cord. Why not put 2 on both?? Second of all, for a 700watt PSU, there should be plenty enough power to have 2 MODERN GPU's in crossfire/SLI. Therefore they should have added 4 6pin pci connectors rather than 2. So really the SLI certification means nothing because no one runs dual 9800GTX's anymore.

Lastly the CPU cord. I read many reviews on here of people saying that the CPU cord is short. I thought these people were just complaining because maybe they had full towers, but that isn't the case at all. I had to stretch the thing out pretty hard just to get it to reach over my 6870 then into the socket. I dont know what i'm going to have to do when i put another card in there. Also, they didn't put the 4pin cpu and the 8pin cpu on the same cord.
