ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Mine, OUT OF THE BOX runs at a SOLID 1342 Mhz core clock
- Cooling is rather good, idles at a cool ~35C. I've only reached 55C tops on hard gaming
- SUPER quiet
- No fancy LEDs to conflict with my color scheme
- Rock solid backplate
- Overclocks better than I expected, had little hopes due to the single 8 pin PCI-E

Cons: - Card does sag quite a bit due to it's massive size and weight
- Has a RIDICULOUSLY bright power LED on the backplate
- Ignores fan presets set by Afterburner (might just be my card)

Other Thoughts: It took to a pretty good OC of 1450 core clock and only 4020 memory

I can't get this card to ignore it's no spin setting with custom fan profiles, may just be my card. But I've also noticed the MAX fan speed on this card is only 42%.

didn't have to adjust ANY voltage, but when I did the temps SKYROCKETED close to ~70

the card sag is to be expected, but since the card is so huge I don't plan on moving to SLI any time soon, I believe it is a 2.25 slot design.

But overall I truly recommend this card, was way more than I was expecting.

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great cable management
Optimal air flow
hidden psu and hard drives
lightweight case
power and reset buttons have a distinct click (good feedback)

Did I mention the air flow?

Cons: It's MASSIVE. A lot bigger than I originally had in mind.
Minimal air filters
only 2 front USB

Other Thoughts: Bought this case second-hand from a seller on craigslist

Even with all the bumps and bruises this thing has sustained from it's previous owner, I'm still overall ecstatic about this case. I've been eye balling it ever since I got my first Corsair case (600T) don't think i'll ever look back.

Cooler Master JetFlo 120 - POM Bearing 120mm Red LED High Performance Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Significantly quieter than the stock H100i fans
Super durable - metal construction, metal threads
sleeved cabling - Decibel limiters are well labeled and of good length (~4in)

Cons: When they ramp up, they're LOUD. But usually only ramp up for <10 seconds. The limiters help a lot.

Other Thoughts: When I added them to my H100i, they made the cooler act kind of funky. flashing red and yellow LED, fans ramping up to 100% then coming to a complete stop every 10 or so seconds.
Changed the USB header and it was fixed.
