Rosewill RHB-411 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Updates my archaic 7 year old case:
2 front USB 3.0 ports
2 fan controllers
Fits in an external 3.5" bay slot

Cons: An e-sata port would have been far more useful that the USB 2.0 ports.

This end-of-lifes my existing 3.5" 4 fan controller front panel header (with only 2 case fans needing such control). Worth selling online perhaps?

Other Thoughts: Putting 2 fans controllers in the mix with 2 USB 3.0 ports is almost too good to be true, though the extra USB 2.0 ports are overkill in my case (pun intended) and I imagine this is almost universally true. I might not even bother to connect those headers. An e-stat port instead would have been WINNING!

MSI Gaming N780 TF 3GD5/OC G-SYNC Support  GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Not overly huge for a high end card
- Fans are very quiet even at 60%
- MSI custom board and components
- TF cooler
- 901 base and 1032 boost clock (at least for the card I got)

Cons: - Uses Elpida GDDR5 g-ram that can barely OC
- Might not support Win8 fast boot (though I use Win7)

Other Thoughts: Well, this card is now nearly eclipsed by the pending arrival of the 800 series, so for its steep price most buyers will no longer be interesting in 'old tech'. I just wished I got one last December when there were better deals offered for it. Overall it performs as I expected, fits fine in my cramped mid-tower and is barely audible when running stressing gaming loads, so no regrets here. I just wish it had Samsung g-ram that could OC. I can hit a stable boost clock of 1200, but the ram OC flakes out barely over 3300. To OC make sure to use the latest beta of Afterburner, it allows the core voltage to be boosted though the 103% power limiter kills me getting a higher OC (for now I'll pass on using a modded bios).
