This review is from: ECS BLACK SERIES A780GM-A AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Not with this. This is the 2nd one. Guess I didn't learn the 1st time.
Cons: Board started to fail. Did all the required troubleshooting.
Customer service kept coming up with all sorts of new methods of troubleshooting. I replaced with another board and my computer is up and running. I'm just trying to get a simple RMA to replace. Customer service section is conveniently unavailable after going through all the hoops to fill out online.
Other Thoughts: Epic fail on customer service and this is the 2nd ECS board I have bought. No more. :(READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought two pairs of these for my gamer. They have worked w/o any problems.
Other Thoughts: Patriot makes great RAM. Wish I had bought them at the current price, oh well.
Time to upgrade to 16Gb now.
This review is from: Scythe USA SCVMS-1000 Sleeve VGA Cooler
Pros: It's running 10 deg. C cooler than stock @ idle so far, hoping it'll lower some more once the paste cures on the sinks & gpu itself.
Installed w/ Gelid GC Extreme thermal paste.
Simple to install.
Cons: If thermal tape doesn't have the 3M logo on it....don't use it! This VGA cooler does not have very good tape. Use thermal adhesive for the h/s or they will fall off.
Fortunately I always keep some Artic Silver thermal adhesive for such occasions and was prepared.
Other Thoughts: Installed on a EVGA 9800 GTX & monitoring temps w/ EVGA Precision 2.0. - Fans @ 40%READ FULL REVIEW
