PowerColor PCS+ AX7970 3GBD5-2DHPPV Radeon HD 7970 VORTEXII 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1100Mhz out of the box is incredible! This card comes with a non-reference PCB of Powercolor's own design that just screams high quality. I changed the thermal paste on mine to something a little more high quality and it dropped the temperature by 6 C. Now under full load it maxes out around 63 C. I play at 2560x1440 so it is pretty much at 100% all the time.

Cons: I wish this came with the old Power Jack that Powercolor used to sell because it does sag a little.

Other Thoughts: Powercolor is quickly becoming my favorite AMD GPU vendor. I had to RMA a 7950 a little while back and it was a painless process compared to other brands I've dealt with in the past.

ECS A960M-M2 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Impressive for the Price 10/04/2012

This review is from: ECS A960M-M2 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I bought this motherboard to build a spare gaming PC for when my friends come over. I paired it with an X4 965 and a GTX 465 that I had laying around. So far this motherboard is very impressive for the price. I even have the CPU 100% stable at 4Ghz. The only thing I would have to deduct an egg for is that I can't overclock by the multiplier in the BIOS. If I use AMD overdrive in the OS I can change the multi of the CPU but not in the BIOS.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: For an AMD build on the cheap I don't see why this motherboard can't do the job.

ASRock X79 EXTREME4-M LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Low on price high on features 04/11/2012

This review is from: ASRock X79 EXTREME4-M LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This board is without a doubt the best bang for buck X79 board. I ordered it with an i7 3820 and it booted fine with the stock BIOS. Crossfire works great on this board too! It recognized the XMP profile right away for my RAM and the UEFI BIOS is easy to navigate.

Cons: The southbridge fan is insanely loud, but it only kicks on while gaming so it's not that much of an issue.

Other Thoughts: Asrock is quickly becoming my favorite motherboard brand. This is my 3rd Asrock board and I have never had an issues with them. I used to have an Asus Rampage IV Extreme and this little board has 99% of the essential features but costs half as much! Keep up the amazing work Asrock you have a customer for life.
