NZXT HALE90 V2 NP-1GM-1000A 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active@0.99(Typically) PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Fully modular, great looking in a white case.

-Comes with a few pre-sleeved cable extensions.

-Runs quietly.

-Currently powering overclocked i7-3820 and 2 overclocked 7970s. My total system was pushing almost 800W without any overclocking, so it seems to be giving (at least very close to) the advertised wattage, unlike some of the lesser-known brands.

Cons: None so far, but like any PSU I won't know until it dies.

NZXT SWITCH 810 White CA-SW810-W1 Steel / Plastic ATX HYBRID Full Tower Gaming Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Amazing case, could be better. 07/10/2013

This review is from: NZXT SWITCH 810 White CA-SW810-W1 Steel / Plastic ATX HYBRID Full Tower Gaming Computer Case

Pros: -Very spacious. Lots of room for a custom water cooling loop including a 360 and 240 radiator. Even with these components installed, it still looks clean and open with lots of free space.

-Excellent, excellent, excellent cable management.

-Removable HDD bays.

-Front and top panels and all of the dust filters are extremely easy to remove and attach. Makes is very easy to work with if you need to get your hands into places when attaching components. All you have to do is press on them and they "click" out.

-Case looks good - it doesn't demand your attention with too much detail like many other cases.

-Front USB, USB3.0, and SD Card reader.

-NZXT support is very involved in the community. They even included my build on their FB page when it was done! :)

Cons: -Front panel (specifically the optical drive flap) seems to be made of pretty cheap plastic. I had to tape mine shut from the inside after removing the optical drive so that it doesn't keep falling open.

-Markings on front panel are etched black on black, so it's extremely hard to see in limited lighting. Can't see where I'm plugging audio jacks into, etc. Reset button is also in a non-intuitive place, compared to the power button.

-Doesn't support / fit 480 radiator, although it feels like it could easily fit one on the top with a few slight adjustments or modifications. to the case frame itself. Also, the front technically doesn't support a 240 radiator. Mine is currently only being held up by the top fan, whereas the screws on the bottom fan can't actually go through without drilling your own holes. Seems silly for NZXT not to have included these hole placements. If you do put your 240 radiator on the bottom, it can very easily interfere and severely bend your PSU cables.

-Side panel window could actually be smaller. It displays a fairly large portion of the drive bays, which isn't really necessary and just includes components that aren't visually pleasing to look at.

These are all minor details, and combined I think they only warrant a loss of 1 egg. I'm still overall very pleased with the case.

Other Thoughts: Case is heavy, but that's to be expected.

HIS Radeon HD 7970 H797F3G2M 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -If you are looking to watercool, look no further than this card. Reference design, cheap, with stock fans. It will fit any standard 7970 GPU block.

-Overclocked fairly well. I have it running at 1150MHz base clock, 1575MHz Memory clock with stock voltages.

-I have 2 running in CrossFire, and so far haven't experienced any issues. They are benchmarking extremely well.

Cons: -Kind of have a boring, cheap look and run hot with the stock fan. If you are going to be showing off your computer with a window and/or at LAN parties, you might want a better looking model. If you plan on heavy overclocking, get one with a better cooler. It served my purposes perfectly, though.
