ASUS Radeon R9 280X R9280X-DC2T-3GD5 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast out of the box. Overclocks nicely as well. I got mine stable at better than stock nvidia 980 specs... for much less. the PRICE. Very powerful for the price compared to nVidia cards.

Cons: 1. The fans. They are very efficient and nice... BUT the fluid bearings LEAK. The heat is OK for the gpu with automatic fan settings. dont speed them up or you'll lose fluid and they will start scratching. I wish i would have gone with the Windforce. :/ ***2. The SOFTWARE!! (AMD Gaming Evolved, Raptr, etc.) If you record your games, stream, etc then go with nVidia. Right now, though yes it is new, it is absolute junk. very buggy. Crashing games, crashing OSES, lagging games by saving video files in one big save (several seconds) instead of continuously, and more. It also seems to crash at the end of match games, and generally corrupts the last file (up to the last 20 minutes or so of recorded gameplay) saved. Super stoked because you just recorded that epic win? Nope, no you didn't!

Other Thoughts: 1. Artifacting. a LOT. However, after talking with tech support, they recommend I updated the card BIOS (yes, the gpu itself has its own bios apparently). I updated the BIOS from the file on their website and the artifacting and crashes went away. Gaming performance and overclocking stayed the exact thing, so it was a software bug. Since there is a fix for it, I didn't put it in the Cons section. ***2. You cannot buy the special replacement fans, and i just live with the scratching sounds now. :/ ***3. there is no nVidia physx build in, of course, so games that rely on that wont be as fast on this card as nVidia many nVidia ones.

Thermaltake NiC F4 (CLP0606) 120mm CPU Cooler
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Nice cooler, but hard to install 06/16/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake NiC F4 (CLP0606) 120mm CPU Cooler

Pros: Cools much better than stock heatsink, and looks great in my case. It is nice and big, with plenty of mass. The whole thing seems well-designed, and well-built. It fit in my in win case with around an inch to spare (it has a protruding clear case, but it would probably fit inside a regular one, though barely). It has nice mounting gear so that once installed, it it will only lessen its grip if you unscrew the backplate. Quieter than my GPU :p I LOVE the fan clips. just bent wires, but very easy to work with. pure genius. I couldn't imaging trying to get a screwdriver to put the fans on (which, in my build, was the very last thing to do). If it weren't for these, I would have had one or two screws holding on each fan :o

Cons: It looks they designed this to be as big and efficient as possible... but wow, it is pretty hard to install. I know install difficulty is a trade-off with efficiency and effectiveness with a heatsink, so i debated about taking an egg off at all. But... it was just such a pain to install I took one off for it ... I kept running into what seemed to be an endless series of catch-22's with the install. So I actually installed it about 4 times, despite my best pre-planning lol I installed it inside my case, but I don't see how it would be much different outside, simply because it would be very difficult to get to the MOBO screws with this behemoth in the way. I dont even know if I would be able to run necessary cables with it installed before i put the MOBO in.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am happy with the purchase. It does exactly what I want and is quiet to boot. I had some issues with my case, but the though of having to reinstall this thing again made me think again :o

IN WIN GT1 Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

1 out of 5 eggs Shoddy build and quality control 06/13/2014

This review is from: IN WIN GT1 Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: looks and works nice.. sometimes.

Cons: Great ideas for style, too bad these things only work with good quality control. The case light/fan at the back is nice.. when it works. It flickers on and off randomly. Bad connectors. I had to go BUY some new ends and redo them. SAME for the front case fan (which killed a hard drive when it failed btw. was quite upset about it). If that wasn't enough, the front blue lights failed after a couple weeks. same bad connectors and poor QC (quality control). And, if all that wasn't enough... when it came, the cables were just dangling around in there... which wouldn't be a problem, except that it scratched the hell out of the clear side case during shipping. Yet another horrible QC issue. So, i live with my case side off because it is scratched and looks cloudy in the middle. The SATA cables that came with it are junk, too. They kept dropping drives and screwing up my data every few days. I had to get new SATA cables and those fixed the issues. Honestly, I have never seen a product with so many quality control issues. I really, really don't like giving one-star reviews, and I have never done it before. But this deserves it. It is sad, too, because this case had SO MUCH potential. :(

Other Thoughts: I should have just sent it back day 1, before the other issues showed up. I didn't want to be out the shipping or the time. That is a decision i regret :( Now I live with a junk case, a lost hard drive that cost me more to replace than the case was worth, and a slimmer wallet because of the connectors as well.
