ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition

5 out of 5 eggs Pricey toy 06/16/2016

This review is from: ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition

Pros: Right to the stats. 40 minutes of the Witcher 3 1440p ultra settings. OC mode with Asus GPUTweak II. All maximums: 78C, 2063mhz core, 1251mhz memory, 62% fan speed, 2256 rpm, 3104MB memory used (no mods), 112% TDP, 1.062v VDDC.

Cons: Fans are a little loud at the above rpm but note I have an open air case 3 feet from me sitting on my desk. Stock still sucks.

Other Thoughts: If you can afford it, why not. Came from Crossfire 290s. Was tired of the multi-card shenanigans. GTX 1070 is great for 1440p now but future games (i.e. within 1 year), probably not. I generally upgrade my GPU every two years.

5 out of 5 eggs Own 2, work fine so far 04/26/2016

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch

Pros: I own 2 of these switches for my home network. One is 1.5 years old and the other is less than 1 year old. Best price to performance ratio out there (when on sale). Large-file SSD to SSD copies over Cat6 will saturate gigabit (~120MB/sec).

Cons: If it dies outside the warranty period I will just spend more on the lifetime warranty on the Netgear switch.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why so many are dying outside 24 months. First thought is heat as these units are fanless. Mine are kept in a cool basement, open rack. Time will tell as I'm coming up on 24 months in October. I still think for $60 it's worth a shot for non-critical (home) networks. You're looking at almost twice that for the Netgear switch.

EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 PS 220-PS-1000-V1 80+ PLATINUM 1000W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This PS model is built by Seasonic (the P2 is built by Superflower) so that should tell you everything you need to know. Cables are long enough for most ATX cases. ECO mode is well designed unlike Corsair's version. Playing 30 mins of SW Battelfront (beta) with Crossfire 290s and the fan still did not come on (tested, it works). You can flip the ECO mode on/off at anytime. Very silent even when the fan is on. Sleeved cables look good.

Cons: It doesn't make sandwiches.

Other Thoughts: Seasonic built plus EVGA warranty and support? What's not to love. Get it on sale/rebate. At full price it's still a fair deal.
