EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0, 08G-P4-6276-KR, 8GB GDDR5, RGB LED, 10CM FAN, 10 Power Phases, Double BIOS, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -2012MHz Core clock boost out of the box
-Quiet at most fan speeds up to 90-100%
-Stays fairly cool, max around 70c for me at full load for hours
-3 year warranty, EVGA will take care of you

Cons: -Micron memory on mine won't really OC any more than +400MHz, kinda disappointing
-Price not as close to MSRP as I'd like, but still a good value

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a GTX 770 2GB and this thing was a massive 3x performance increase on average. Very happy overall!

SeaSonic SSR-650RM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet and seemed to work well while it lasted.

Cons: Died on me after 4 months

Other Thoughts: I bought a SeaSonic PSU because I generally see them rated as the best, most reliable power supplies money can buy. I was quite happy with it for the first 4 months, ran very quiet, no problems. Then once day I come home to find my PC had turned itself off. Press the power button, blinks on for a second the goes out. So I open the case, check all the power connections to the motherboard, etc. Still won't come on. I then use SeaSonic's recommendation of "jump starting" the PSU by shorting two of the pins on one of the cable. The power supply comes on and seems to be working. So I plug everything back in and the PC powers back up!

4 days later it's dead again. I try the jump start method again, but it only stays on for a minute. So I'm now sending the unit back to SeaSonic for RMA repair/replacment. Hoping that goes without too much headache. If that goes smoothly, I might update this review to 3 stars.

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model LH-20A1S OEM BK
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast drive. Cheap. Lite-On is usualy great quality.

Cons: Very sensitive to disks. I have several disks that refuse to work in this thing, even though they are flawless and work in other drives. Using the latest firmware too. For example: my Crysis disk will just sound like it's knocking around inside the drive; works fine in any other drive.

Other Thoughts: Not bad at all for the price. Just be ware of disk read issues. Bought mine from ZipZoom at the time.
