Pros: The coil whine is not noticeable at all once inside a closed case. Of course if you place your head right next to the side panel, then you can hear the whine. It's more like a chugging sound though than squeal like other coil whines. The card is very quiet, cool, and looks nice. It performs out of the box as expected. This site lists it at 12.09 inches. The sapphire website lists the card at 12.9 inches. It is 12.09 inches.

Cons: This was a brand new card but there seems to be a little scruff on the edge of the plastic shroud. I don't know what happened but it was there.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card for $299 + free shipping 8/14/2016. I was considering a gtx 1060 or a rx 480. However, they have been very limited quantities with elevated prices. When I saw this card for $299 I figured for being a 1 year old card that is a good deal to not have to wait another couple of months for those other cards to reach more realistic prices.

I use a 1920x1080 60 hz monitor using the target frame limiter. The fans barely come on at all. I'm moving from a hd 7990. The only sad thing is that it has taken so long to get the performance of a 7990 into a single card. I figure by the time I get to 1440p or 4k better cards will be out and will be more affordable in a couple of years.

I'm using this in a rosewill challenger case with the modification of removing part of the front cage. It might look ugly but the card actually fits and rests on the hdd cage with enough clearance for the fans to rotate freely. This actually should help with the weight of the card preventing sagging / bending the pcie slot.

At $299 or less I'd recommend anyone to buy this card if they aren't worried about the higher power draw and length of the card.

5 out of 5 eggs 03/25/2014

This review is from: Logitech G600MMO Gaming Mouse - Black

Pros: It has enough buttons to do what you want

Cons: Main con is having to get used to the mouse and remember which profile you have / buttons do what. It is hard to push the back buttons without lifting the mouse up for me. Also if you slightly light the mouse up the edge rubs on the mousepad. This does make the mouse not feel smooth. However, it shouldn't be a large problem.

ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BL Black / Blue Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case is great. It offers a lot of internal space for devices, hdds, and fans

Cons: The only negative is if you put the computer in sleep an led light flashing nonstop and there's no way to get rid of it without disconnecting the front power led. One other thing is the distance between the bottom of the case if you put hdds down there is far to reach with a single sata power cable. I tend to link dvd drive with a ssd and a hdd on 1 sata power cable.
