This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 980TI GAMING 6G GOLDEN EDITION
Pros: $429 Close Out Price - after buying three cards im still $100 cheaper than 2 FTW 1080s
1530mhz after OC on all three cards.
With fan coolers at 1404 mhz (Boost clock in OC mode) - 65c
With water at 1530mhz (Boost Clock) - 41c
Cons: MSI REBATE PROGRAM
Power Hungry - Pulling 1000 watts of power at full load with 5930k.
Other Thoughts: Was deciding between 2 1080s or 3 980ti's, in all the reviews these were going to be neck and neck in testing. So i ordered three of these bad boys. I went with these because have a corsair 900d and I want the case to look full, but I also went one step further and have the cards water cooled to help with temps. I'm running 3 cards SLI'd and seeing over 1530 mhz on over clocks. That puts it almost 125mhz faster than the over clocking out of the box in OC mode. With water the highest temps i have seen are at 41c. These blow through anything at 4k, Getting over 150 fps in Battlefield 4 at 4k and all settings on ultra. Substantial improvement from Regular GTX 980s .READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Booted up immediately with i7 5930k and 16 gb of G.Skill 3000 MHz memory. Running 4.5 Ghz and 3 MHz on Ram and is running very stable.
Cons: Wired/Wireless Connectivity. Wired worked with Windows 8. Installed 8.1 the Ethernet driver will not work and still have not found a work around. Has Wireless-AC connectivity however steaming seems to have problems. Streaming 1440p and 2160p (4k) is getting a lot of lag and will not even play the video.
Raid configuration only supports 4 hard disks. Not a major concern but I was originally going to run three different raid arrays to have separate storage drives for OS, Games, Media.
If you use 4 PCI-E x16 ports you will not be able to use the M.2 port as it will be deactivated to service you 4th PCI-E x16
Other Thoughts: Overall this Board is quite good and the only really problem is the Internet connections would love to have a work through for that.

4x Nvidia Reference GTX 970 - It does work in 4 way SLI with 20% performance boost over 3 way.

This review is from: WD 2TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN
Pros: Cloud Idea is great.
Cons: Functionality. Like I stated the cloud idea is great and it provide access to the device on gaming systems and pc. But data transfer to this device is Terrible. I have the previous generation Airport extreme and it take over and hour to transfer a 4 GB file to this hard drive. I have about 500GB of movies and pictures to put on here but at that rate it would take what over 5 days to transfer everything to the device. NOT GONNA HAPPEN. If your gonna make it a cloud device great. But at least make it capable of being connected to the computer so you can load data at 3.0 speeds (50-100 MBS) then be able to use it as a cloud device because you dont need to transfer data more than 10 MB a second for video playback. This is going to sit and be useless now.READ FULL REVIEW
