GIGABYTE GV-R779OC-2GD Radeon HD 7790 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I plugged it in and it went well. With my water colled system and 8 core AMD CPU I have not had a problem. I believe that people that are having problems dont have the right hardware instaled, either they are trying to add this pumped up video card to thier older motherboard.
You just cant do that people! Not all hardware is compatible because all of it communicates with each other like robots, You don't tell it to communicate it automatically starts to talk with each other so it can work but if they don't get along your going to experience errors.

Cons: I only got one and should of bought the pair before they stoop making these. I bought them for $80 on Black friday in 2013. oh well wait until next Black friday then give this one to my mom.

Other Thoughts: I started with the CPU. (AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz) It took a week to find the right setup.
(MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 +) and I knew I would need memory that can handle the extreme load so I researched these (G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)) Then of course every gamer knows that your Hard drive platters are obsolete!!!! Your system is only as fast as your hard drive so I ended up buying a SSD drive Ultra which boosted my speed actually quadrupled my system speed. So if your trying to use an old harddrive then try to buy an SSD drive asap and you will see a huge difference! Oh also if your monitor is not 1ms and doesnt have HDMI ports then forget about buying this card! Upgrade your external hardware and see a huge difference because the artifacts your experiencing could be your monitor that runs at 5ms which is horrible. RESEARCH gaming monitors they all run at 1ms eliminating ghosting.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

5 out of 5 eggs Wow what a difference 02/22/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: excellent cooling. right now its at average temp 16 degrees Celsius. My Graphics card is at 34 and my SSD is at 35. When I had a fan on this 8 core FX chip that draws 125w power, lets say it was splitting atoms lol then I put this amazing smart pump that connects to the USB to give the Links program all the information on what's going on.

Cons: none so far. Make sure you check the box for water leaks or in the bag that its leaking return immediately. The box should have no damage on it if so its a water leak. Some people are unlucky and they get a damaged product, thank goodness I have not experienced that yet, Well except for the H80i that died on me after two months of use.

Other Thoughts: Just try to be more knowledgeable on temps because if you get a faulty pump your CPU might end up burning up your motherboard. Or your bios will shut it down before it gets to that hot.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

1 out of 5 eggs Worked for 2 months 02/22/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: It cooled the * core CPU rated at 125W, Tested it on Battlefield 3 and 4 and all was great. I didn't know if it was running as it should until it broke... look at cons

Cons: So it stop pumping. went to BestaBuy and bought the H100i and low and behold it was running like an Olympic pro. The H80i was defective when I received it but couldn't tell because I never had any experience with Corsair and Water cooled plus the CPU was new as well so too me that was all normal until now! Now I am 2 months and cant return because expired return :( I wish I knew before what temps where normal for this. 15 degrees Celsius is what you should be getting when surfing the web expect it to max to 45 even 50 with Battlefield 4 but set the fans on Hi on your link program from Corsair.

Other Thoughts: Their is no way to know if you are getting a crappie deal and the pump is a bad one. The only way to know is by testing it and finally knowing what your normal temps should be. Wish New Egg would refund me this defect that's all I wish.
