Thermaltake Versa H22 Mid-Tower Case CA-1B3-00M1NN-00 SPCC ATX 7 x Expansion Slots 3 x 5.25
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap! And is excellent quality!

Cons: Drive bay snaps can be annoying, And the sides should have been designed a little better to make them easier to get off and on.

Other Thoughts: You can't ask for a better case at this price! I bought this to replace my very very loud Antec ThreeHundred, Don't get me wrong I love my old Antec case, but it is a older design. My New Thermaltake Versa H22 keeps my system just as cool as the Antec did with only one fan! I run this hardware in this case,
CPU: Intel Ivy i5-3470@3.8ghz
Mobo: Biostar TZ77A
GPU: EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0
Ram: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600mhz
PSU: Corsair CX600
And just the rear fan in this case keeps everything cool, My CPU (stock intel fan) and GPU will get a little past 60c under load but that's it. And most important it's very quiet now. My ears no longer ring. Also cable management is excellent. I have no idea why some people can't figure out the fan mounts on the air filter. It's called common sense people! Just like when you played legos!

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Great if you love living in a glass house! 08/28/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Pros: The only pro is DX12, And that is it! I would not have even gone with windows 10 if it was not for all the money I spent on a DX12 card! Windows 10 is a Orwellian nightmare! And I would still not use 10 if I was not smart enough to know how to disable all the spyware! It took me almost a whole day to disable and get rid of cortana and edge, And drive one, and the cloud garbage! And the rest of the spyware! Now it is basically Windows 8.1 without Internet Explorer, But I never used IE anyway! So no loss!

Cons: Cortana is just annoying! And it takes forever to sift through and disable all the new Microcrap embedded spyware!

Other Thoughts: This is just unacceptable! Whatever happened to power to the people? Give the people what they want? Nobody wants this garbage!

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very Fast GPU, And has a very respectable factory overclock, Runs anything and everything at ultra. Runs every game in existence at Ultra settings at 1080p. Despite some problems with EVGA's design and no backplate, I love this GPU and really enjoy it.

Cons: Well, The cooler is a better than average cooler. But EVGA could have done much better for the price you have to pay. The VRM is not cooled very well and the rear V-Ram chips are left to roast unless you have a decent fan setup in your case. Also I did not get a backplate. I was under the impression if you bought a expensive high end GPU from EVGA they would give you a backplate for free. I was hoping for one too because of the back V_Ram chips. But EVGA is not the great customer server after all. They are just as slimy as the worst. And I will never buy another EVGA. The only reason this GPU is functional is thanks to Nvidia's quality control.

Other Thoughts: Despite EVGA's sudden spiral out of control, This is still a good GPU. And the GTX 970 and the R9 290X are two of the greatest bang for buck GPUs you can get. If you game you should not go any lower than this GPU. Because game devs get worse on optimization each year.
