Pros: Good price and its a WD drive as long as its not refurbished.
NEVER had a problem with these drives or WD until purchasing them for really cheap price.
If you care about your data, the newegg deal might not be a good deal if you have to RMA the drive
Cons: Picked 3 drives up from NewEgg on their sale....I had 2 out of 3 drives have MAJOR unrecoverable errors discovered.
The drives were "refurbished" at the end of September. Sticker said the were manufactured around that time frame
Other Thoughts: Drives were supposed to be sold as new, but I'm thinking WD and newegg just unloaded a ton of drives on the consumer hoping that less customers would return the product than what was purchased.
WD RMA both drives without a major issue or problem, other than data loss which would occur if you weren't running a data backup program.
Pros: Card is a beast for crunching World Community Grid work units.
It cut the time in half to process a work unit compared to the previous card I owned which was a Nvidia GTX-285
Not as loud as expected after reading reviews form other users.
I don't really use for gaming, but more for virtual machines and graphic / video editing.
It seems like the colors are a little bit better on my monitor??? Or could be a placebo effect.
Everything draws and pops almost instantly onto the screen when launching programs and browsers with 15-20 tabs. Launching both Chrome and Firefox at the same time.
Cons: None so far!
Other Thoughts: The stock cooling fan is a little bit louder than 3 enermax 120 cooling fans I have installed for my water loop. It really doesn't bother me when listening to music.
Since not really a gamer, this card should last well into the future.
Have adequate airflow thru the case and that will help to minimize the speed of the default fan running at max speed on the graphics card.
This review is from: EVERCOOL FAN-EC4007M12CA 40mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Was recommended by another poster to use on the Adaptec 6405 RAID card.
It works very well and reduced the temps on the card!!
Temps without the fan --> 160F - 195F
Temps with Add-On fan --> 120F - 145F
Cons: none so far, worked as expected and ddoes the job I need to keep the RAID card coolREAD FULL REVIEW
