MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 08/10/2015

This review is from: MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: -Moves a good amount of air
-Cheap

Cons: -Loud: these fans are noticeable louder than my radiator fans.
-They produce a noticeable high pitched whining noise, (coil whine)

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these fans for $12 and for the price they're not bad. If coil whine is something that annoys you, I would recommend a different brand.

EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Graphics Card

5 out of 5 eggs Great performance and bang for buck. And low power consumption. 06/09/2015

This review is from: EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Graphics Card

Pros: After running some benchmarks, I find the performance-to-cost is fantastic!

-Witcher 3: on High runs 60-55 FPS; there're certain areas where the FPS drops to 45, but in all major areas, (cities, etc.) the game runs perfectly.

-Shadows of Mordor: on high is a constant 60-58 FPS (with HD Textures DLC).

-CS:GO: with settings maxed I get over 80 FPS on a zombie survival server with over 32 players on screen at once.

-Power consumption is very efficient considering the performance. Also, the fans are not active until the GPU is actually being used, which is a neat trick to reduce fan noise and power consumption on idle.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I feel that $350 is a great price to pay for this GPU. IMO, it's a much better value then the GTX 980, which offers a very minor boost in FPS, (like maybe 10) for $200 more.

My Specs:
CPU: Intel i7-4790K @ stock speed
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970 @ stock speed
Motherboard: MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 SDRAM @ stock speed
PSU: Corsair 600w

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Great Product, but beware of loose backplate issue plaguing users! 05/09/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Pros: -Keeps my i7-4790k @ 60-75 Celsius on %100 load
(34-45 with %10-20 load)

-Corsair link software is great and easy to use

Cons: There's one BIG problem with this product: The backplate. Even when the backplate was installed properly, I was getting temps of upward 90 Celsius on %100 load!

After some googling I found that on some mobos the backplate doesn't fit tightly enough and requires washers to create a more tight connection so that the cooler actually sets on the CPU. Apparently, this is a common issue.

I'm disappointed that Corsair didn't start including washers with this product and document this problem in the manual; if they did, then this really wouldn't be an issue.

Other Thoughts: Before installing, I recommend watching "H100i Backplate Fix" on YouTube (Uploaded by bleedinsixcolours) just to get a better overview of this problem.
