3 out of 5 eggs TL;DR Good Card, Bad Packaging. 12/30/2013

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 780 DirectX 11.1 ZT-70201-10P 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

Pros: Great card, standard stock GTX 780 reference cooler. I'll let you look at benchmarks to make your own decisions on performance.

Cons: Very thoughtless packaging. Card is surrounded by 1/2 in thick dense foam. Nothing wrong with that.

The problem is that Zotac cut a hole in the foam on the PCB side and tossed in a DVI adapter with no padding anywhere. This results in a hard plastic/metal adapter sandwiched between the cardboard and the PCB that could very easily break chips and components off the back of the card.

Other Thoughts: I believe the total carelessness of tossing in a loose DVI adapter next to a high end graphics card with no protection warrants a loss of 2 eggs when there are so many identical cards with better packaging.

Cooler Master TPC 612 - High Performance CPU Cooler with 2 Vapor Chambers and 4 Heatpipes
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It kinda cools? See below.

Cons: I own both this version and the revised one. The revised one is much better at cooling.

Other Thoughts: On two different Ivy Bridge i5-3570K cpus; One at 4ghz no over voltage with this cooler hit 80°C under load, The other as running at 5ghz + some over volting on the revised edition and it barely hit 70°C.

Corel VideoStudio Pro X4

1 out of 5 eggs Makes WMM Look Awesome 04/08/2012

This review is from: Corel VideoStudio Pro X4

Pros: It kinda edits videos...

Cons: Worthless, you get more out of Windows Movie maker as far as real editing goes.

Other Thoughts: Has lots of goofy and worthless text effects but not much else. Again, WMM has WAAAAY more useful features.
