SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD05B-USB3.0 Aluminum / 0.8mm SECC  micro-ATX / Mini-DTX / Mini-ITX MB, 1x5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: A really nice looking case with breathing room. The beveled edges on the front give it an even sleeker look. The front is brushed black. Solid construction.

Cons: Check your video card measurements before buying. I have a Zotac GTX 1060 AMP Edition and had to press the power wires down a bit to slide the top of the case on (same with my GTX 780) but it's worth it for the shorter case height.

Other Thoughts: This is my second GD05B. I bought it to replace a mATX case that had the PSU mount over the CPU cooler. I suspected that was the cause of high CPU temps (i7 4790K/Noctua NH-L9i cooler). CPU temps dropped over 10c at idle and 20c under load. 26c idle and in the 60s under load - ambient room temperature 78F. Since I don't have a video card that expels air out of the back of the case I changed Silverstone's airflow setup and have the fans bring in air over the mobo and expel it out the other side.

Pros: I get a picture with them.

Cons: These cables only achieve a 30Hz refresh rate in 4k connected to HDMI 2.0 ports.
The picture looks a bit worse than with my old HDMI cable.

Other Thoughts: Nice looking product but that's about it.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 AMP!, ZT-P10600B-10M, 6GB GDDR5 Super Compact Dual-Fan IceStorm Cooling FREEZE Fan Stop
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs my 4k monitor great. Play a lot of CS:GO and it looks beautiful and @ 60Hz - do some video editing also. Fans stay off unless under load then they kick in but they're still quieter than other brands I've had. Small and silent seem to be Zotac's specialty. Nice heatpipe cooling.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Absolutely recommend. Make sure you use a Display Port or HDMI 2.0 Cable otherwise you'll only get 30Hz @ 4k. I had to download the drivers from Zotac's website. The drivers on the disk didn't work (Windows 8.1). I think Zotac is going to be my go-to brand from now on. Two cards from them and they're both awesome.
