This review is from: Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound
Pros: had to buy some finishing pieces for liquid cool build, and this is the ONLY thing I bought two of. The other stuff was diamond based. Other vendor missed it in package, and thankfully I ordered this. I went from stock junk on the Phenom 9600BE, stock fan to watercooled, Tuniq TX-2....went from 65C plus (unstable after) to 30C idle, 40 under COMPLETE load!!!!! Not kidding.
Cons: None, will still try the diamond stuff too though...
Other Thoughts: Anyone wanna guess the shelf life of this stuff or know how long it's good for?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GENERIC NET12 Fan Guard/Grill, chromed, for 120mm fans
Pros: my radbox hanging a dual 120 off back look downright ridiculous with these added on...
Cons: shipping cost
Other Thoughts: I wish newegg would do free shipping on random things like these every now and againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good bang for your buck if you get a rebate....hopefully mine will someday get here. Got it stable at 695 clock.... don't mess with the RAM though...Honestly though, it runs Crysis Warhead, Wars pretty well on 1900X 1200 (albeit not many effects)...but see below, I have a CPU and RAM that makes up for it a bit...Frontlines Fuels of War and BF2142 just look ridiculous in above resolution. BIOSHOCK? awesome BF2??? Well, my favorite game of all time (minus Xcom, MOHAA and Scorched Earth) ... well BF2 got big white splotches on it. I wanted to cry.....I could switch back to onboard chip on mobo if I wanted to REALLY play it.... I tried debugging the game... but no go......
So all in all I'd say decent card... will play new games pretty well on small monitors like nothing, and with some effort at higher resolutions... but it is possible.
One last pro??? my birthday is next month! So I'll come up with some excuse to buy a 4870 and sell this thing
Cons: it's not a 4870, or 48070X2......but for the money it's good.
Other Thoughts: If you're building a sick gaming rig, with Quad core, lots of RAM, then don't be cheap like me and buy this card... go all out. Now I've watercooled my CPU (Phenom 9600 BE at 2.7).... and I'm TOTALLy bottlenecked because I was a cheapskate on the vid card. Plus, did you notice the memory is only DDR2... or that the 4670 is like the same price.READ FULL REVIEW
