This review is from: C2G 40424 6in Value Series One 3.5mm Stereo Female To Two RCA Stereo Male Y-Cable
Pros: Works as intended. Finally, I can play TV audio and PC audio through the same speakers.
Cons: None I can think of, but I guess time will tell if this thing lasts. I'll review it again if and when it does.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 4GB G1 GAMING OC EDITION
Pros: Beautiful card. Runs most games very well with no issues. Runs cool, fast, and is not power hungry! It also overclocks very well with little to no voltage increase.
Coming from a R9 290, performance is comparably better, all the while keeping temps below 62C. Benchmarking and gaming, temps never exceed 61C. The card is also very quiet!! I had a Tri-X R9 290, you had 2 choices, run it hot or run it loud.. When running Far Cry 4 the R9 290 got pretty hot AND loud and ran less FPS than this GTX 970 does. I'd say on average the 970 runs an extra 20fps. This GTX 970, I have no idea if the fans are even running.
I know that coil whine is an issue with some people, and while I have heard the coil whine, I have not had any issue with this being an often occurrence. It's only happened a hand full of times, but was not loud at all, at least for myself. It's only happened on Far Cry 4 intro scenes, so far.
Card looks great too, the WINDFORCE LED is a nice touch, as well as the back plate. Makes me feel like the card is more rigid.
Cons: Gigantic card, but when I compared the Tri-X 290 and this G1 its practically the same size, despite the G1 being .28" longer. I couldn't even tell. I have like 1cm between the card and the hard drive bays, but I already knew it would fit just fine.
Other Thoughts: I'm extremely happy with this G1 Gaming GTX 970. Only time will tell if it lasts.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Had no problem using XMP profiles to run at 2133mhz. Currently, its running at 2187mhz with my BCLK overclocked to 102.5mhz.
It ran Prime95 for over 13hours stable. Made no adjustment to voltage settings.
Cons: No real complaints at this time.READ FULL REVIEW
