This review is from: Hauppauge ImpactVCB Video Capture Card RCA connectors plus one S-Video/ PCI - OEM
Pros: Easy to setup in Ubuntu 14.04.2.
Cons: Not an issue for me, but be aware -THERE IS NO AUDIO INPUTS on this card.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this to put into an older PC (AMD Phenom X4 955 CPU, 8GB RAM and some fairly cheap discrete AMD GPU [I can't remember the model]). My use case is hooking up a VCR and digitizing old home movies for my parents. The VCR is using RCA outputs. I am using an RCA-to-3.5mm cable to get audio to my mic port on my motherboard for audio input.
I do not believe the card itself is capable of encoding the video. That said, using VLC to record/encode into MP4 the is working great (I beleive software encoded), but YMMV. The source video is 1980's home VHS recordings, so I do not require anything close to HD
Pros: High quality, sturdy pack. Others have mentioned lack of storage space, not something I personally have really noticed. But I do use for a work pack to hold my laptop 15", 66 piece driver set, serial cables, adapters, 2 Raspberry Pi's and a bunch of random stuff. There still seems to be plenty of room in there.
Cons: Segmented storage reduces the ability to carry many large items.
Other Thoughts: I can see if you want to utilize as a travel or school pack (read large books) this probably isn't the best pack. The pack has a large storage area (more than it seems, actually) but the segmentation reduces the amount of large items it can hold.
The segmentation is great for organization, or smaller items, such as cables, adapters and other thingies*
*This was a different word that newegg flags (Really?!!!). Weird that a word that fits perfectly can't be used. It starts with a "P" and means "miscellaneous articles, especially the equipment needed for a particular activity."
This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-R1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket
Pros: Fit my GTX760 "Mini ITX" by MSI GPU without issue.
Cons: No eggs removed, but on my CPU board (made for mini ITX) about half of the bracket hags off the end of the card (the part that holds the fan). I almost took my dremmel to it to cut it off and just use the actual pump harness, but that would have looked bad. If they could make one w/o the fan addition, and just a smaller pump bracket, I might purchase a second for my other GPU (I have 2 identical boards in SLI)
Other Thoughts: As mentioned in the instructions, this isn't really meant for the novice. I used this as my first jump into liquid cooling my GPU (plenty of experience with my CPU). Easier than expected. Just requires taking your time to understand the proper orientation of the bracket and getting the pump secured.
I installed on a MSI GTX760 "Mini ITX" board (in a full ATX case BTW). I had concerns as my card is not as long as most, but it fit just fine. The fan hangs off the card, but it actually helps with overall airflow in the case.
