MSI GeForce GTX 970 GTX 970 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: awesome card! mine is dead after 40 days of ownership though. ran for about three days total up time, vrm smoked out running wolfenstein the new order @ 4k on display port, medium graphics settings, after 40 minutes of game time. noticed the vrm running really hot. figured it was ok. guess i was wrong.

Cons: vrm runs real hot! maybe just mine, but it ran so hot it just smoked & shut down. ordered an ek water block, pump & res for it last week, arriving monday....guess that will have to wait. nice.

Other Thoughts: had to get curious. opened it up to see, second vrm chip up from the pci gold fingers is nuked, solder melted out. the ones above and below look cooked too, but may be just from the one chip.

totally bummed out.

photographed it for reference.

BuMat 3D-BUM-ABSBK ABS Filament, 1.75mm, Black

1 out of 5 eggs not bumat 1.75mm, counterfeit. 04/13/2015

This review is from: BuMat 3D-BUM-ABSBK ABS Filament, 1.75mm, Black

Pros: it is a good thing i am telling everyone this.

Cons: fake product. did not meet bumat specs. full of air/gas in purple and black that was ordered.
the packaging was all wrong. bumat filament comes in a cardboard box, with color code stickers on the spool. not made in the USA.
these spools have a different pattern layout, different screws, no box with bumat logos, no color code sticker, they were vacuum sealed in cryo-vac type plastic. they are also not bumat filament, this stuff is falsely labeled and a counterfeit product.
this is probably not the sellers fault. but more likely a fraudulent manufacturer

Other Thoughts: need i say more?

White ECS LIVA 64GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 64GB eMMC Storage
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs ecs liva bat mini 64 10/26/2014

This review is from: White ECS LIVA 64GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 64GB eMMC Storage

Pros: small footprint, energy superstar, fast for what it is, embedded everything (SoC), m.2, bluetooth 4.0, 1000gb lan, hdmi port, took 5 minutes to assemble, 20 minutes or less to load any supported operating system.

Cons: not really a negative point, but the manufacturer ought to know:
the heatsink screw stress from factory assembly is too tight on the 32gb and 64gb models. every few kits i get one that idles at 55c, (it is within tolerances) but the others run at 41c. so i tore into one and voided the warranty to see what was going on. the screws were so tight on the hot one that the thermal patch had been squished away completely, and the processor had chips on the edge from being tightened too much. i cleaned everything up and used some good compound, put it back together and what do you know? 41/42c idling windows 8.1 pro.

Other Thoughts: both the 32 and 64gb models are awesome. use this little machine for a desktop pc, htpc running kodi, a fileserver, a ubuntu build, it runs other flavs of linux too, just stick with debian and be ready to run some scripts for hardware detection.
