EVGA 04G-P4-3673-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW+ 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Got 4gb version for 2D/3D surround. This single card absolutely blows 2 460s out of the water (about double the performance at 6030x1080) on most benches/compares I've done so far. Runs nice and quiet on water! :)

Cons: It's not a Titan? (and I'm not broke now, either).

Other Thoughts: No real increase or reasoning to go 680 over this card once overclocked a bit more (remember, this card is already OC'd out of the box), your RAM can go substantially higher, but your core won't unless you're upping your voltage (NOT RECOMMENDED).

This card is a 680 reference design and will fit 680 reference water blocks perfectly.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Absolutely amazing SSD. SO much better than my old OCZ from 2010.

weighs about as much as two feathers.

Old SSD- seq read: 229.13, seq write: 143.74
4k read: 29.63, 4k write: 7.27
4k-64thrd read: 30.30, 4k-64thrd write: 6.00
read score: 83, write score: 28, overall score: 162

This SSD: seq read: 514.59, seq write: 331.78
4k read: 37.29, 4k write: 117.21
4k-64thrd read: 347.96, 4k-64thrd write: 225.16
read score: 437, write score: 376, overall score: 1040

Cons: Will be even better once i RAID 0 it? (no real cons to list).

Included software thinks your My Documents (and other such folders) are on your main drive (even if you have them pointed elsewhere) so I couldn't get it to realize that there was enough room to do the image (nothing against the drive itself though). Recommend reinstall your OS on a new drive anyway.

Other Thoughts: This drive blows my mind. You know how Windows 7 boot shows a Windows flag, twisting around and joining in the center of the screen? Yeah, It never makes it to the center... You know the 'Welcome' page during boot where you wait and the cursor just spins there? Yep, you guessed it, don't see that either.

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

Pros: Love this chip. It does run hot (thank Intel, for fail TIM here), but heat doesn't remove the stability of the chip (as long as you know what you're doing and what to watch for). Got it to 4.8 on water (B batch#). Would like to go higher, but it's not wanting to w/o a substantial voltage increase (could be the mobo too).

Cons: Hmm, well... uh...

nope, can't think of any (well, besides Intel's fail at TIM on Ivy chips).

Other Thoughts: A beast, and still holding down the fort as the best bang for your buck for a gaming setup (as of Q2 2013).

Came from a i5-760 at 4.2 and benches are showing almost double the performance.
