MSI R9 280X GAMING 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I guess it's just from the tweaks but I love this card even at default. I wanted to see how far I can bring up the clocks without it going 10c higher but at least enough to see results. I was actually surprised.

I got the card to 1200 core clock and 1600 memory clock. Voltage wouldn't let me keep it at +5 or less and stuck at +6. Thank you msi afterburner.

It runs, that's all I'm going to be able to describe it. It just runs.

Upgrading from a 7850 1gb and yea, there is a huge difference. Loaded up Tomb raider,Bioshock with dlc, Dead Space, Battlefield, and Goat simulator for fun and it just runs +60 fps with/without v-sync as well. Beautiful construction and A FREAKIN BACKPLATE, whatttt?

6gb push this card to construct and render anything in Maya or 3d max without small hiccups. Of course that was expected and I wasn't let down.

What else .... it runs 2 monitors at at 35c idle? Fine temps for me.

Cons: Only con would have to be .... the software I guess (afterburner)? Can't be a big negative but to unlock the voltage for the card you need msi afterburner 3.0.0 beat 19 and it doesn't update from the version the disk is in. You need to go to the MSI Afterburner site and download it from there. Or else you'll get a 404 error updating from the software in the disk. Das about it.

ICY DOCK FLEX-FIT Trio MB343SP 2 x 2.5” HDD/SSD to 5.25” Adapter/Bracket with 1 x 3.5” Device/Drive Bay
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Alright here it is, I love who ever came up with the idea to make this. It's perfect for fitting my hard rive, 3.5 (1) and ssd, 2.5 (1 or 2) in an all in one.

Simple yet surprisingly elegant in design. Now I'm getting to fancy. It's awesome that's about it.

Cons: 2 things that would count as a con would be head output for a hard rive. Ssd no problem, but a large 3.5 hard rive and you can have a bit of heat.

Then there's the middle plastic piece separating the 3.5 drive bay tot he 2, 2.5 bays. It's awkward with putting power cables for the 2.5 drive bays so if you have a Cd player forget putting it on top it'll just heat up your system or catch a wire on fire.That's just saying what the worst can happen it's really simple either way.

Other Thoughts: If you want room in your case like a 350D and improve some airflow this will help. Just make sure your fans "have a very good airflow" then the investment into this is worth it every penny.

NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM

2 out of 5 eggs So yea it made my asus gene catch on fire ..... 01/19/2014

This review is from: NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 Ultra Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 280MM

Pros: It's got everything to cool down your cpu.

Even an i7 4770k at 4.6 with an average of 28C max load 76C which is ok. But it should be lower on load.

Cons: Besides buggy software that doesn't detect the usb sometimes?
I ain't going to lie, I love Nzxt and their products. I will continue using them. But this time just going with a x40 this rather then this, which is overkill really. I had this in my system for more then 5 months before everything went to hell.

About 5 months later turning on my system, no changes just turning it on, my motherboad caught on fire and fried the 3 pin cpu cable to the board. I was lucky to have my i7 safe but having to order another motherboard (asus gene z87) and finding out also my kraken x60 was fried as well.

Other Thoughts: It was a case of bad luck and what else can I do? I called them but again I guess bad luck struck and I still cannout get a hold of anyone. Might try online rather then phone.

So to tell what happen:

-All connections in place

-Turned on system

-Motherboard burst into flames spewing the magic smoke

-While taking everything out cpu connection for x60 melted to board

-Baw at my destroyed machines because I need it for animation and gaming.

-Cpu intact now replacing cpu cord as well.

Also I was using Nzxt's 700 watt V2 psu, so yea ..... why you do this to me Nzxt. :c
