XFX FX-799A-XNF9 Radeon HD 7990 6GB 384-Bit x2 GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: fast, lotsa memory, incredible bit rate.

Cons: i put two in crossfire and they overheated.

yeah, i have a xclio wind tunnel so no lack of airflow on my part.

Other Thoughts: these should come stock with waterblocks. especially at the price. luckily the vendor i used gave me back my money. i used it on two sapphire cards. they were cheaper and came with more adapters. i took off the case's side panel and now have a 20" lasko fan blowing on my machine whenever it is powered up. it would've cost me 450 dollars to use water instead of the less than 30 i spent on a house fan.

2 year warranty was quite a shock. i have other cards by xfx that are guaranteed for life, that's why i got these, i didnt realize they changed. ive also had sapphire in the past, i see no difference, but price and number of adapters. they look exactly the same except the fan decals and the name on the cards.

ASRock X79 Extreme11 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs im ready to upgrade, youre not 06/17/2013

This review is from: ASRock X79 Extreme11 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: super updated awesome motherboard with everything I want.

Cons: too many bad reviews. no phone support. no 30 day replacement policy. too expensive to be playing games with whether or not I get one that works.

Other Thoughts: seems I have to keep waiting. hasn't it been over a year and half since they put out the 2011? looking at all the bad reviews I cant justify buying this motherboard.

bent pins, really? no 30 day replacement policy from either manufacturer or seller? what is up with that, ive never heard of such a thing on newegg.

no phone service for a 600 dollar motherboard?

11 dollars for a sticker you didn't put in a box? haha

bios that don't work with all known cpu's?

raid that doesn't work with every buyer?

no compatible memory for 64 gigs of ram?

how long does the list have to get before they fix their motherboard instead of having a pub rep come here and tell us we are clowns that don't know how to build computers?

I guess I know why they went back to quads with the 1150 sockets.

I doubt they will be supporting this socket much longer. good thing I waited. what was that one socket, o yeah, the 1366, whatever happened to that?

no way im buying a 1150 since it's just another quad.

good going asrock way to keep the tech moving up.

feel free to contact me when you get a motherboard with these stats that has a 30 day return policy.

thanks

AMD Gift FARCRY3 Blood Dragon CRYSIS3 BIOSHOCK
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs dont fall for it 02/19/2013

This review is from: AMD Gift FARCRY3 Blood Dragon CRYSIS3 BIOSHOCK

Pros: nice try

Cons: you have to use origin for crysis 3 and steam for bio inf.

they both slow down your connection speed and they both have more hackers then players that dont hack.

people cheat on both making the games less fun in multiplayer.

steam and origin only hurt the people that dont cheat.

Other Thoughts: i was going to buy this awesome card right away because i saw these two games for free. then i read all the reviews and found out you dont get games, you get a code to download games.

and then you have to go online to register on steam and origin even if you want to play solo.

i also heard that crysis 3's campaign is only 5 hours long.
