This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G
Pros: -Easily overclocked to 1550 MHz without raising voltage.
-4GB RAM, all graphic intensive future games will utilize this.
-NO coil whine (buy a reputable PSU guys...) Even a 650W Rosewill Hive suffices. 40 bucks.
-Silent up to 60°C, but can easily be changed with Afterburner. Nice for Dota, great for Far Cry 4.
-I've thrown Ultra settings at the card with all the latest games and there may be some stutters, but the performance you get at this price, it's going to be unbeatable for awhile.
Cons: I got it the week it came out and it's still the same price so no regrets. I'm becoming more and more MSI inclined with every computer I build and sell.

Keep calm and Micro ATX on.
Pros: Moves a ton of air. No vibration. Pleasant swift sound.
Cons: Price? But there's usually a rebate/discount every other week. Custom PC builder here and so far I've bought nearly 20 of these for around $5 a pop.
Other Thoughts: Compared to Coolermaster and XIGMATEK 4 packs, just wait for deals on these and you can get them for around 5 bucks a pop. Not only do they blow what I feel to be at least twice as much air, they have sleeved cords, rubber mounts, and orange just works. Two of theses in a push/pull setup on a radiator = win for me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Goes on sale for $23
- 85% Efficiency for conversion (yielding 10,200 mAh of true battery power)
- Quick charge is here to stay and won't be replaced by something better in the near future
- Nice texture, won't easily scratch
- LED proves to be more useful than not
- High amp input
- Charges Moto X Pure from zero to full in 55 minutes
Cons: I have another 12,000 mAh charger that weighs more and is smaller so maybe there is wasted space here? Though the regulating chips and circuitry could be the culprit.READ FULL REVIEW
