EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Replaced outdated gtx260. $200 cheaper then the gtx980 and works in Ubuntu 14.10 & blender 2.73a. Having 4gb of memory great for rendering. And multi monitor with high resolution options. Fit in mid size case with no problems. Ubuntu work before any Nvidia drivers downloaded and worked flawless with the 346.xx driver for ubuntu. Also using the newest cuda 6.5.

Cons: Was not free. Do not have a 2nd one to run sli

Other Thoughts: Ubuntu users...... followed the steps on ask Ubuntu to add the correct ppa to add to software sources - then the package manager can install. Just untick the ppa in software sources after drivers installed.

Rosewill 10

Pros: red will match mobo in next build.
secure connection to SSD and HDD.
cheap, but i thought when this was in my wish list the price was .99 cents.

Cons: did not realize how short 10" is. was used to the 16" which were too long.
cd/dvd rom too far away to use but that's ok, should of got two long and three 10".
angle on plug is nice but not if you had 2 HDDs or cd roms on top of each other, would have to use flat end.

SILVERSTONE Tundra Series TD03 ALL-IN-ONE Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

4 out of 5 eggs decent cooling 10/22/2013

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Tundra Series TD03 ALL-IN-ONE Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: doing a burn-in on the cpu w/ all 4 cores %100 temps only went as high as 48c.
good price for all-in-one cpu cooler.
radiator seems well constructed - not like radiators that easily dent or are sharp.
installation was easy (after carefully looking at the screws in the instruction manual - two types of screws look very similiar) but after that install was really easy - did not even take graphics card out or take mobo from the case (case has access on both sides for mobo).
compatible with lga775, 1150-1156 & 2011 mobo.
looks nice in pc case (should of been more blue light on the pump, and led on pump wire).
it works and did not leak
no pump noise or wine (maybe can't hear it because of the sound of the turbo jet noise!).

Cons: the radiator screw holes did not line-up when installing in back of pc case but not cpu coolers fault. had to use only one screw and a wire coated metal tie to secure the fan and radiator and used the other fan elsewhere in the mid tower pc case.
fans move a lot of air but are LOUD, pc is in th bedroom and can hear it in the kitchen! could have fan speed controlled in bios or fan controller but may eventually replace with some led fans that are a little more quite (but less airflow), depending on if temps rise.
only using in a Q6600 - we'll see what temps are like when this goes on an i74770k.

Other Thoughts: did not realize how think radiator is, especially with two fans on each side.
i di dnot use the TIM that came with it, not sure how good it is but i always use a s5 - maybe i'll test with what came with it next time around.
would give it 5 eggs but not testing on a 4th gen cpu yet andif it were a lot quiter, cool nicely though.
