Hanns-G HZ281HPB 27.5'' 3ms Full HD 1080P HDMI WideScreen LCD Monitor 400cd/m2  X-Contrast 15,000:1(800:1)Built-in Speakers

Pros: Great displays, vivid color, bright backlighting

Cons: Fairly poor black in my opinion, the bezels could be smaller for Nvidia Surround, and they are only 1920x1200 resolution.

Other Thoughts: For the size of the displays, they should probably be 2560x1600 resolution though they do look great at their native resolutions of 1920x1200. I am running three of these displays on three GTX470s in Surround at 6054x1200 with bezel correction and they work astoundingly well for the purpose.
If you do this, be warned that there can be some motion sickness until you acclimate.

4 out of 5 eggs Great cards, very poor factory heatsink compound 10/17/2010

This review is from: EVGA 012-P3-1470-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Very fast and I can heat my house.

Cons: I was running extremely high temperatures prior to popping the heatsink and replacing the original heatsink compound. Heatsink does not have a flat base so the contact with the gpu is rather dodgy. The factory compound was applied erratically, was dry as a bone, and looked like a poorly trained bricklayer tried to apply it. These cards generate tremendous amounts of heat under load.

Other Thoughts: Seriously consider cleaning off the original heatsink grease and putting on a higher quality compound as soon as possible. The factory application was rough on all three of my cards, the excess had squirted out from between the GPUs and was partially filling the surrounding "channel" around the GPU. Fortunately there was no exposed circutry for the excess compound to short out but it was difficult to remove it all.

ABS Majesty series MJ1100-M Continuous 1100W@50°C ATX12V/EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, Single 12V Rail, Modular Flat Cable Design, Active-PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Stable power output under load and dead silent.
Flat ribbon cables help

Cons: Flat ribbon cables were somewhat difficult to align to not block even more airflow than standard round cables, once aligned, they can actually be used to direct airflow between the SLI cards

Other Thoughts: Flat ribbon cables have to be guided into a position to not block more airflow than they would have done had they been the original round ones from earlier ABS designs.
