This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition [Online Game Code]
Pros: Runs almost like a 680
Cons: Initial cooling issues, none really
Other Thoughts: Owned this for 4 months now and initially, it would get really hot under load. After a few weeks of use though, it settled out at around 60C load 29 idle. Runs everything blazing fast. Even has PCI 3.0 so it'll run faster when mobos update to 3.0
Great card. Getting another for SLI and then I'm going to forget about my power. I'll be set for awhile.
Pros: Thermal compound, some of the best.
Other Thoughts: People who say this sucks and doesn't work obviously didn't apply it right. You use the pea size method, and don't spread this stuff. Apply directly in the center and then put the fan down straight on it. Wiggle the heatsink a little - just a little - and you should be fine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill HERCULES-1600 – 1600-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply – Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Silver, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire Ready
Pros: Insane amounts of power
Great for quad SLI / Crossfire
Supports all OC'd hardware easy
Cons: Huge. At least and inch and a half if not two from regular PSU's, you'll need a full tower
Price, but hey. Its 1600 watts
You will actually see you electric bill go up.
Other Thoughts: I use this for my ultra OP build, which includes 3 GTX690's, as well as a 3770x extreme edition, and 32GB of G.skill ram at 1866.
Handles it so easy.
Also, i had to redesign my fan layout, since my cpu is watercooled, and those 690,'s get hot enough, this bad boy needed some more air. Im currently playing with a fan solution that pulls all air up and out, since hot air naturally rises anyway.
