SAPPHIRE  Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (11197-01-40G)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Heatsink design is awesome
-Dual fans that are whisper quiet even at 50%
-OCed right out of the box
-Flawless on Ultra settings for anything I throw at it so far

Cons: -I don't like the fact it doesn't have a backplate
-A bit bigger than my Sapphire 5870 Eyefinity, so I had to rearrange some cables

Other Thoughts: I have used ATI/AMD since 2005 and have loved them. This is a GREAT high end card for any Radeon fan. I'm glad I finally went all out on top quality parts for this build.

Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Extremely fast
-Lots of Cache
-Heatsink easy to install and efficient
-Doesn't overheat as I've heard

Cons: None that I've found

Other Thoughts: The stock fan had an issue with my z77 Sabertooth, but I disabled the warnings for CPU fan issues. I was worried I was about to get the famous dead fan I've heard much about on other reviews. Just turns out the mobo doesn't like to wait a second or two for the fan to start up. Oh well, 31C at idle, no complaints

I bought this on Amzn for 306.99 and had an overnight it for 328 altogether. I love you guys at NewEgg, but Amzn had a steal price and I couldn't resist :)

I upgraded from a Q9550. The difference is phenominal

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs The best mobo I have EVER owned 06/16/2012

This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -Amazing design
-BIOS is so easy to use
-Nice cooling options
-Plenty of USB and SATA ports
-The audio is nice and crisp
-PCI-e 3.0 quick on single cards

Cons: A little tricky on the screws without a magnetized screwdriver (but still manageable. Just be careful of course) when you're putting them into the deeper holes in the thermal armor

Other Thoughts: I'm glad the audio is good. I had a PCI Xtreme Gamer on my old ASUS P5Q board and loved the clarity of it. The on board audio is better than I anticipated. I have this linked with a 3770. It's easy to maintain temp, voltage, and boot drives. I've never had a BIOS so simple that used a mouse pointer with it, so I might be overemphasizing on the joy of the BIOS. I'll still mention it because it's true :)
