COOLER MASTER COSMOS 1000 RC-1000-KSN1-GP Black/ Silver Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs CM Cosmos RC 100: Still working flawlessly after 7 yrs 01/15/2015

This review is from: COOLER MASTER COSMOS 1000 RC-1000-KSN1-GP Black/ Silver Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1. Two bottom ventilators with filters. 2. Extremely well made, 3. Sleek, 4. High Quality, 5. Looks wonderful, 6. Ample Space, 7. Allows for a quiet system

Cons: No SSD bays. (SSD's did not exist back in 2007) You have got to use an aftermarket 5 1/2 inch tray to house your SSD in one of the 5 1/2 inch bays.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case in March 2008. Fast Fwd 7 years later, the only thing that's left of my original Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 on a GA-P35-DS4 & Gigabyte NVIDIA GTS-8800 GPU is the case.

I re-used this case for my new build which is an ASUS Maximus VI Hero, i7-4770k, GTX 780ti GHz Edition, a Samsung 840 EVO SSD and two 2TB WD Green HDDs. The system is powered by a Silverstone Strider Gold 850W PSU.

All computer ports (USB ports, mic, etc) and every mechanical part in my case still work perfectly.

I am sure I will reuse this case with my next major update cycle after 4 years or so. This case is one of those things that are always in style, like a Harley-Davidson.

GIGABYTE GV-N78TGHZ-3GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs GTX 780 Ti GHZ Edition @ASUS Maximus VI Hero Z87 & i7-4770k 12/28/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GV-N78TGHZ-3GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Faster than the Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming, matches the EVGA GTX 780 Ti KINGPIN Edition when overclocked.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I have owned this card for about 2 months now. I am very happy with it.

This card is extremely fast. Here's some proof:

1. 3D Mark Fire Strike GRAPHICS SCORE at Stock Clocks: 13010

2. 3D Mark 11 GRAPHICS SCORE at Stock Clocks: 16888

When slightly overclocked, which this card does with ease, this card matches or exceeds EVGA GTX 780 Ti KINGPIN 3D Mark 11 Graphics Score of 17300 3D Marks.

To understand just how fast this card is, a GTX 690 scores 17600 3D Marks (Graphics Score) at 3D Mark 11. Currently, this card is No 6 at 3D mark COM "Best Graphics Cards December - 2014 ".

A GTX 980 scores 18050 3D Marks Graphics Score at 3D Mark 11 COM.

I have had zero problems with my card, which I bought as "open box".

I own a high quality PSU that features a very strong 12V rail@70 Amps.

Full System Specs for ppl who are having issues with this card to compare with:

-CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K @ 4GHz Multi Core Turbo.
-MOBO: ASUS Maximus VI Hero ROG Intel Z87 Express
BIOS Version 1301, Jan 2014. (My BIOS is one year old)
-PSU: Silverstone Strider Gold 850W
-CASE: Cooler Master COSMOS RC-1000
-RAM: G.SKILL ARES DDR3-2133 MHz.@2200 MHz
-CPU FAN: Thermaltake FRIO OCK

A further note, this card's Windforce cooling so so effective that I am able to run the GPU with ALL my four case fans switched off and only the CPU FAN running at lowest revs. This allows for a COMPLETELY SILENT system. The card never exceeds 59 Celsius.

(My Cooler Master COSMOS RC-1000 case features additional sound proofing material and was designed to be silent).

So, 17k 3D Marks and a completely silent system, this sounds perfect to me. Hope this post helps ppl.

Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache PATA 2.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable and quiet. Runs cool too.

Cons: Only 250 GB capacity.

Other Thoughts: This drive has been working on my work laptop which is a 2003 model Toshiba Satellite S1950-801 for abt 3 years. The motherboard is based on the Intel 845 chipset which was released in Jan 2002.

I work as an officer on board ocean-going merchant vessels, and this drive has been through a lot of engine produced vibration and vessel listing 15 degrees to port or starboard and still works fine.

It is a great choice to revive your old laptop for use at work. It can run MS Office, Firefox, Acrobat etc very well. Highly recommended.

A word to the wise: If you plan to have your laptop run 24/7, use a laptop cooling pad.

Highest temperature noted for the drive was 41 C/106 F in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, at an ambient of abt 38 C/100F. In non-desert temperatures, the drive runs at about 32 C/90 F. Checked with CPUID Hardware Monitor.

I hope this post helps ppl.
