Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Does what it does with great perfomance ... but 09/27/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Does what it does with great performance. Cool and cool looking. Maximum PC tested this in their most recent roundup as still a great buy. Probably the best for the price as well.

Cons: Installation. Seriously Cooler Master, better directions are needed than the kindergarten coloring book you gave me. I docked an egg because it's very unclear and could result in damage to your system if you aren't careful. Overall it's still a great product.

MSI 760GMA-P34 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This board is:
-What you need for simple overclocking
-Inexpensive for the amount of extra features not usually found on AM3+ mATX boards (USB 3.0 and Sata 6 Gb/s)
-Heatsinks on some of the chipsets.

If you want something that you are going to keep it simple with and you want an AM3+ mATX... this is it.

Cons: As you can see by the pictures... if you use a double slot PCIe video card you will not be using the PCIe 1x.

Other Thoughts: Running stable with FX 6350 @ 4.2 GHz and 8GB DDR3 1600 slightly overclocked in 1700s range.

ZOTAC AMP! SUPERCLOCKED ZT-70303-10P G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Let me just say this thing is a power house. It's boasts very impressive performance. This particular card feels exceptionally sturdy to the touch and it doesn't run hot through a Maximum setting, Heaven 4.0 + V-Sync, 5 loop test. I was impressed with quality of display... but I was not impressed with the drivers. I game in 1920x1080, so I'm sure others could comment of the performance at higher resolutions.

For the 5-30 minutes it would allow me to stay in Farcry 3, Crysis 2, Wargame: Airland Battle, Heaven 4.0 benchmark and ES V: Skyrim....All at max setting in 1920x1080 45-60fps+ with 8x - 16x AA... I was in heaven.

Cons: Had to RMA back to the egg because of the apparently infamous black screen-to-desktop crash, I wasn't aware of before I purchased, that a lot of GTX 770 OC owners are experiencing. I tried many things and it didn't seem like a hardware issue. Drivers are to blame and I think others will agree.

Other Thoughts: I exchanged this for a Zotac GTX 680 AMP! and it is arriving today. Essentially the same card but less problems with drivers, lower clock speeds :( but known, good and working. I was very impressed with Zotac's manufacturing quality and technical support.
