LG 27EC33V-B Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Brushed aluminium look, attracted design, wall mountable, three inputs, crisp quality, cheap price and quick response time. I've yet to tinker with all the options yet.

Cons: The power cord is annoyingly short, as in maybe a few feet? smh. It also has a brick power adapter so expect it to hog up your power strip. A few lower resolutions don't seem to be scaling properly or appear softer than I'd expect, but video card scaling options seem to compensate just fine.

Other Thoughts: There's complaints of a lack of brightness. I do not have this issue and find it more than adequate, but then again I'm not using it in front of a bay window facing the sunrise or anything either.

SAPPHIRE 100312-3SR Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Struts it's stuff.

Cons: Costs monies.
Is greedy with it's shaders :(

Other Thoughts: Runs all my games wonderfully. Only time it hiccups is with Super Sampled AA >4x.

Shaders. Well... seems certain SKUs have more of a chance at unlocking, but still boils down to luck of the draw. Some are soft-locked and some are hard-locked. Mine was hard-locked. Not really concerned tho, as the extra performance gain would have only yielded a few frames extra *shrug*. Unless it's 10+, just not worth it IMHO.

I really enjoy the BIOS switch; no worries of fudging up, just flip the switch ;)

Temps are decent. Under full stress it stays under 68c. Average gaming temps are around 65c @42-50% fan duty. Fan is loud only at more than 60% duty, which is understandable.

Now that's in my cramped and unmodded A30 in a desk cubby. I vented the side window and now temps are substantially better. If I put the PC out in the open, so to speak, we're only dealing <63c under stress. That's <58c while gaming. Not bad.

I'm Happy with it.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Keeps it's cool, with a quirk. 03/21/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Keeps the CPU cool and quiet. Very well.

Cons: Installation is awkward.
Tube length and rigidity.
Pump noise.

Other Thoughts: I installed this on my Core i5 in a Thermaltake A30 case. Took some modding but fits like a glove inside the case.

My core temps under stress(Prime95 3hrs+) never break 47c at stock clocks (i5 2600k @ 3.3ghz). Idle is a chilly 28/29c. Normal use never breaks 34c.

Tubes are annoyingly stiff. Couldn't hurt to lengthen them by an inch or so. The fan cable could be a few cm longer. A few fins on the rad were bent.

The pump concerns me. It has this "rattling" noise; reminds me of worn bearing O_O. I'm not sure this is normal; others report noise, but liken it to more of an odd hum or whine.

Other than that, it's not too loud. Still tho the pump worries me. Maybe it's normal, maybe not. It's the only thing I hear that bothers me.
