MSI H97 GAMING 3 LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quality PCB, Excellent layout, excellent VRM heatsinks.

I'm impressed with not only the board but the audio and Killer Lan as well. This is a quality product that works well and has excellent drivers.

It stays cool while in operation, and I love that it still has at least one PCI slot.

Cons: Only 6 SATA plugs? That's about all I can ding it for, which isn't enough for an egg!

Other Thoughts: I thoroughly recommend this board for any of the Haswell CPU's of the non-k variety. It's perfect in that arena and seems to be of a quality you usually find on $180 motherboards.

ZOTAC ZT-70401-10P G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fairly powerful, roughly on par with a 660Ti, but with wider bus and boost 2.0, so it performs better.

Very cheap! At $149 there is no way I could pass this up for use in an extra computer!

Mine had an ASIC score of 93, so it's a very good chip. That number means it will likely overclock quite a bit with little extra heat and no voltage required. That's a real good thing because of cooler (see below).

Cons: -Runs hot. Thsi is one of the worst reference coolers I have run into. The heatsink has no fins. It is merely a pieve of copper. The fins you see if you look in exhaust are merely for the VRM. Even with an aggressive fan profile I implemented, with good case airflow, it bumps right up to the 80 degree C throttle limit.

Normally I like reference coolers. My reference 780 has a very nice reference cooler that cools phenomenally as well as being quiet. THIS cooler is rather loud, and it's obviously a cheap fan. Still it does the job, barely.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a fairly good card. No extreme low points, and in general does what it should: play at 1080P on med to high settings. The heatsink and blower could be better, but at this price, it's worth it.

I'd recommend this definately for a spare computer, but not necessarily a primary rig with all the Maxwells on the market.

Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK - Black, 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs All around SOLID External Enclosure 07/24/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK - Black, 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure with Internal 80 mm Fan

Pros: -Aluminum body to help cooling
-quiet fan yet excellent airflow and heat dissipation
-all of mine have had excellent craftsmanship
-works well on eSATA and USB (eSATA performance is very good)
-definately worth the money

Cons: The only con, and it's not a big one, is it's not made for quickly switching out a hard drive. It takes a complete breakdown of parts to do that.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these (2 black and 2 brushed metal/silvery. 3 run on eSATA (which I still prefer over USB 3, because no port dropouts or driver problems which USB 3 still has).

One of mine has run 24/7 for 3 years straight on USB connection as the backup drive for my WHS2011 server!

*To Roger S. below: They DO make a USB 3.0 version...I also have one of those!
