PowerColor AX7950 3GBD5-2DH Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked FANTASTIC untill it didn't
Plays evry game i have on ultra no problems
Looks great. Nice high gloss finish
Ran cool and quiet

Cons: I bought this card on 4/24/2012 and after 3 weeks the card just stopped working. I was watching Netflix. I walked out of the room to grab a drink and as soon as i walked back in the room My computer shut off. Tried to power it back up and nothing.. So i started troubleshooting by unplugging stuff 1 by 1. Once i got to the video card and unplugged it the system would power on. So i removed the card and tested it in my sons pc and my wifes pc and the same result.. The computers wouldnt power on while the 2 6pin pci-e were plugged in so im sending it back for a replacement

Other Thoughts: This is my first time buying a high end Powercolor video card. Also. This is the first time i have ever had a video card fail for no reason like this one did. I hope this is not a sign of things to come. It was running very cool 49c max while gaming 29c idle so i know it was not a heat issue. Aslo i never had the need to overclock the card so i know that was not a issue. It just stopped

XFX HD-687X-CNFC Radeon HD 6870 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lookes nice installed

Cons: Ran very hot. 81c idle and auto fan stayed at 100% all the time. If i manualy set the fan to even 80% the card became unresponsive and had to do a hard reset. Even at 100% if i opened a game my pc would lock up and would have to hard reset again. My intenal case ambient temperature is normally around 75F/23c this card made my ambient temperature rise to 135F/57c. I even tried driver reinstalls and used soem older drivers thinking it was the issue but no dice.

Other Thoughts: This is the 2nd XFX card that i have had heat issues with my first was a 5770 that would idle at 60c. I bought a Asus EAH5770 CuCore and it runs at 31c idle 66c max in the same system.. I dont think i will be buying XFX again

Corsair Vengeance K90  Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Performance, MMO Mechanical Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Best keyboard i have ever used.
Stunning to looks.

Cons: Where do i start. I received my shiny new keybord on the 10th and couldnt wait to open it and hook it up but was very :( to find out the the 6 key was burnt out. I thought to myself well maybe i can live with that but then tragedy. as i looked down the P key led started to flicker and die then the Y key did the same. I said "no this just cant be" then 30sec later the O key did the same thing. Now i remember the big red STOP! paper in the box. So i call corsair Tech Support to RMA and he tells me they can advance rma me a new 1 and i can just send this back when i get it. So now i call the sevice dep to setup the advanced part of it and they tell me "sorry we are out of stock" and guess what so is newegg so now it must be returned for a refund..

Other Thoughts: I can just hope that corsair can sort out the issue with the bad leds because after reading some of the other reviews i am not the only one that has had this problem and until they do i wont be buying another
