Antec Eleven Hundred V2 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: great air flow
tons of room
great cable management
fan slot on backside of cpu area of motherboard
the 2 side fans are absolutely perfectly placed. Runs air over top and bottom of my video card, feeds it and keeps it cool.

Cons: no front mounted rads if you want liquid cooling. The fans sit in a cubby that would take some modding to hook a ran up to, and you would have to mount the rad where the hd cages go.

Other Thoughts: Love this case. some people complain thast the v2 is all 120's and has none of the 200mm's from v1, but honestly its much better having 120mm. They are the focus of the powers that be that make fans, so all the best fans are 120mm. plus liquid cooling doesn't come in 200mm format.

MSI Gaming N770 TF 4GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs all my games at 60 fps on a 1440p monitor.

Stays cool...really cool. Gaming at 1080p could use stock fan setting of 34% and would never go over 60c. On 1440p had to setup custom fan profile and temps only reach 64c.

Quite! Stock fan speed cant be heard over case fans or really at all. Even at 70% on custom fan curve, I cant hear the fans themselves, just the air moving from them and even then only because my current desktop setup has back of case pointing at me.

Cons: Connecting one of the 8 pin power wires is annoying from the heatpipe that sticks out and semi interferes with the connection, tho mostly when removing and not so much when plugging in.

I also wonder if the same said heatpipe will damage the 8 pin power connector that's mm's away by design as that heatpipe gets really hot since it direct touches the gpu core and doesn't hit its part of the heat spreader till after it comes close to the 8 pin connector.

Other Thoughts: Great gaming card. Highly recommend it, even if the 700 series is last years model at this point.

4 gigs of video memory is awesome for 1440p and above resolutions, including multi monitor setups. People were flaming 4g's on a 770 as useless, and it kinda of is for most people. But if u play in better then 1080p its a must have, I have hit over 50% ram usage on a few games, meaning standard 2g wouldn't cut it.

Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs 11/16/2014

This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: Keeps my amd fx 6300 running @ 4.2 max temp of 35c full load. Idles single digits when web browsing or just playing hd video.

Cons: Massive.......if u want to call that a con. wont fit in all cases as many others have said. In my antec 1100v2 case, it sits about 1/4" from side plexiglass panel on the 140mm fan.

Cant use tall heat spreaders...but who needs them...see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Awesome cooler, as good or better then most aio liquid cooling solutions. People have complained that on amd boards u have to mount it so that it vents out the top. Not true in my experience. On my msi 990fx gd65 motherboard, it sits just fine venting out the back of the case. I'm not sure if certain cheaper boards will only let you mount it pulling heat from the video card, but in my personal experience I found it to be untrue.

Most normal ram will fit under the cooler just fine, and with it drawing lots of air to feed itself right over the top of your ram, temps stay nice and cool on the modules and giant heat spreaders not needed.

All and all I would highly recommend this cpu cooler for anyone who wants artic temps and doesn't want the potential hassle of liquid cooling.
