EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy installation, quiet, runs cool and is FAST! The ACX cooler does a great job in keeping this card cool.
After uninstalling the graphics drivers for my previous card, 580 GTX, I installed the new 780 GTX. Using the clean installation feature in the Nvidia graphics driver software, there were no issues in getting the graphics set up after reboot. I did not have to use driver sweeper prior to installing the 780 GTX, nor did I have to update the BIOS for my motherboard. The card was immediately detected. The 780 GTX is the same size as the 580 GTX, so there was no issue with not having enough room in the Azza Hurricane case.

Cons: Of course the price but that is it!

Other Thoughts: Replaced a 580 GTX for the 780 GTX and am so glad I made the choice. The 580 is a very good card but the 780 practically spanks it in performance. Since I do alot of flight simulation (FS9 and FSX), the 780 is a welcome addition. The 580 struggled fairly often in FSX at high settings, but the 780 is performing like a charm. Heat was always an issue with the 580 during heavy cloud draws...usually 50-60C and the fans would get very loud. I have been using the 780 for a few days now and have already put it through the paces in FSX and FS9. The card has barely reached 47C during the heaviest of loads. Graphics load much faster in both sims. Tried it with BF3 and BF4 beta as well. With ultra high resolution and full screen mode, I get solid 60 FPS. No hiccups at all! I guarantee you will not be disappointed in purchasing this card.
Use EVGA Precision to set the fan curve for heat dissipation. Works great!

Rig: Asus P8Z68 V-Pro mobo, Intel 2600K CPU oveclocked to 4.6 Ghz (liquid cooled), 8G Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x4G(8-8-8-24), Thermaltake 1,000W PSU, Fatal1ty Champion Series sound card

Mionix Ensis 320 (000MIOEL) Luna Brushed Aluminum Mouse Pad
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs It's A Mouse Pad 10/09/2013

This review is from: Mionix Ensis 320 (000MIOEL) Luna Brushed Aluminum Mouse Pad

Pros: Nice finish, smooth and stays in place quite well. My Cyber Sniper laser mouse works very well on this pad. I have used other higher priced mouse pads that do not hold up as well as this one.

Cons: The finish on the mouse pad does come off and gets all over the bottom of the mouse. I have to regularly clean it off. There is definitely an area of the pad surface that is void of any finish...looks worn out now.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure the maker of this mouse pad has a good reason to apply a finish to the mouse pad but what for? All it does is create a mess on the mouse and a person's hand after a while.

D-Link DCS-931L Cloud Wireless IP Camera, 640X480 Resolution, Wi-Fi Extender, Sound and Motion Detection, mydlink enabled
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Compact design, decent images, customizable software, ethernet or wireless connectivity, viewable from cell phone, expandable wireless coverage, and price

Cons: Installation was not as easy as I had imagined. Going through the step by step process in the set up software was not as clear and user friendly when trying to use wireless connectivity. had to call Dlink's tech support to walk me through the process. Had to set up connectivity via ethernet first and then configure for wireless.

Other Thoughts: Not certain if motion detection is actually that reliable but am still evaluating the camera. So far works quite well and can go in any room without ethernet connectivity. Have set up the software to send frequent images to my email in case I cannot view the video from my phone at intervals of every 2 minutes. yes, that can be alot of images but worth knowing whether or not my landlord is sneaking into my apartment without proper notice.
