EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2978-KR 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support FTW ACX 2.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have nothing but great things to say about this card. First off, it's a very fast card with a good amount of memory to handle anything I can throw at it. Streaming video even at HD settings is no problem at all. I can enjoy my games at the highest settings and this card won't even break a sweat. It's more power effecient than my old 550 Ti cards. The cooler and case have a simplistic design and I like the blue accents on it. It's very stylish. The overall design isn't very flashy like most other cards that have over the top cover designs and LEDs.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: A lot of people complain that this and other cards in the 900 series experience coil whine. I experienced some when I first installed my card, but not a lot. What causes coil whine in the card from what I've learned is the frame rate. The card is rendering excess frames, causing the card to overwork itself and allows the power coils to cause the coil whine we all find disturbing. I went into the EVGA Precision X software on my card and adjusted the target frame rate to match the frame rate on my monitor. That managed to completely silence my card and I have yet to experience coil whine again. If you are experiencing coil whine with this card, try adjusting the frame rate target of your card to match your monitor's and see if that helps.

CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Provides enough power for my rig with still enough head room to spare. It has enough cables wired into it to run a basic build or you can expand it to fit your needs. It's quite versatile. It also doesn't have the harsh clicking sound that the AX860i has during power on and off.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind the colored wires that the HX850 has and it provides what you need for your system, this is a nice PSU to get. I find it very silent and it provides all the power I need for my system. I do recommend this unit because it provides great overall performance at an affordable price.

BitFenix Shinobi XL Window Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I like the rubberized feel of the case. It's a nice basic look, but with a subtle modern design and feel to it. It has plenty of hard drive trays to mount your drives and I like that it comes with a 3.5" bay adapter so you can mount a card reader into it. It has a lot of room inside and the case is not too big, which is something I like. It also has enough space to mount plenty of radiators, so a water cooling setup is not a problem with this case. I love the fact that it has plenty of head room to mount a radiator unlike the Cooler Master Cosmos 2.

Cons: Ok... the cons. With every good case, there does come flaws. The drive trays when they're not populated tend to slip out of their slots, so I had to use the included screws to hold them in place. The rubber grommets also tend to slip out of position when feeding wires through them. Really, these are just minor flaws.

Other Thoughts: Despite the minor flaws that this case has, it's really a great case if you're looking for something basic and has a modern look to it. It's not too big for your rig and it has just the right amount of space so you can easily install your components. Given the ease it was to put together my build, I can honestly recommend this case for anyone's custom system.
