Rosewill RNX-N250PCe - Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11 b / g / n, Up to 300 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A pair of 5 dbi antennas provides for excellent signal range and quality. These provide an Excellent Signal whereas the former wireless card only had Medium signal strength.

Cons: Costs more, but the better quality antennas are more than worth it.

Other Thoughts: Fourth Rosewill Wireless Card I have used on my own personal machines; so far so good.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Cooler For HD 6970 01/12/2012

This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler

Pros: Excellent Cooling Capabilities
37C @ Idle
57C under Full Load for 30 min. (BitMining)
61C for VRM temp under Full Load ^^^^^
Ambient Temp. ~ 22C
Better Price than it's Competition
Looks Cool, at least to me it does.

Cons: Not the Rev. 2 model... hence the VRM heatsink doesn't work on an HD 6970, but that's easily fixed with several smaller ones. Not a huge issue, but it does take a little longer to install as is.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a stock cooler on my HIS HD 6970. It lowered the temps under load by 30C. And it's totally silent in comparison too. I can't hear it over my case fans, even when stress testing.

Make sure you install ALL of the Heatsinks. Some major review sites neglected to install everything and therefore had VRM temps over 100. Take your time and it will work wonderfully for you. :)

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6770 100338L 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good Performance for it's Price
Great Price, especially with Promo Code and Rebate
Very Good Cooler... 100% GPU load temps never top 63 C even after running Overclocked to 960mhz for 24 hours straight (Fan on Auto, which is Silent).
This actually vents part of the hot air out the back of the case, most of the 6770s just dump it out into your case...

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Very impressed with this video card, the cooler is about the best in it's class if you don't want to spend $30 more for a VaporX or IceQ etc.
