SAPPHIRE 100361-8GVXSR Radeon R9 290X 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E Video Card Tri-X OC Version (UEFI)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card is quite a powerhouse. I am running everything on the highest settings at 1440p and I always stay above 30 fps. That's on the most demanding or poorly optimized games, on better optimized games or not so intensive games I get 60 or more. The card is actually pretty quite for having 3 fans and the highest temps I have seen are in the low to mid 70s. It's a big card, but it's beautiful and the Blue/Yellow/Red LED on the side is an easy way to know that your card isn't running hot during overclock testing and such.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I went from 1080 to 1440, I upgraded from two 2 GB vram HD 7870's. I got 30+ fps with the 7870s, but it was very unstable with dips into the 20's or worse.

Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 - Sleeve Bearing 200mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good fan, no issues, LED works, fan is quiet, not super expensive

Cons: None

Thermaltake Core V71 Extreme Full Tower Chassis, Compatible With Extreme Liquid Cooling Builds (CA-1B6-00F1WN-00)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I love this case, the removable hard drive cages allow extra room if you need it or just want more space for a better air flow. The case should be plenty big enough as it is. It really isn't super expensive for the quality, it's mostly steel with plastic on the front and top. The removable dust filters on all sides are nice for keeping everything clean. The 200mm fans all work fine for me and the fan controller works as well. All of my front/top panel plugs and jacks work. This is just a really really nice case. I actually only feel cool or slightly warm air coming from the exhaust with my 7 case fans! Temps are so much lower than my old case. My 8350 used to hit 65-70 under heavy loads, but now I hit 65 max under load and I overclocked my CPU. Same Zalman cooler in both cases.

Cons: The rear turbo fan that came with the case is having issues maintaining a constant RPM. I will probably end up having to replace it eventually.

Other Thoughts: I did have to do some moving around with the psu mount and my bottom 2 120mm fans to get them to fit comfortably, so just be ready to mess with that if you want more fans.
