This review is from: Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP
Pros: All and all lets just say great bang for buck. You get what you pay for and more. Temps are about 50c to 58c and plays everything just about everything on max settings. Res stays at 1440p, that is the cards sweet spot. 4k gaming isn't bad at 30ish to 40ish frames but I believe two of these would make 4k shine. She looks great and feels hardcore. One of the best cards AMD has made to date. If you can get her on sale GO for it.
Cons: Only con I see is that the radiator is a little over sized for most cases. Not going to take a star for me not doing my homework on the product.
Other Thoughts: Also, she might be power hungry but no where near a three card setup. Temps are crazy low and power consumption has gone down from 1050w to all around 675w. I have her paired with my i7 4820k overclocked at around 4.3ghz. My intel has no problem pushing her to her max playing games like Rise of the Tomb Raider. Even though she comes with just 4gigs of ram its beast! BUT I would make sure you have at least 16gigs of system ram as she will eat up 7 to 8gigs on some games. I think if i'm right if you crossfire two of these you will have enough vram. Some people say that crossfire scales across the cards vram as in one...to say if one card has 4gigs all two or three or more cards use just that 4gigs...Right...well from what I have seen all vram is add up and used as a whole. But anyways... Great card. Strong and solid game play. Its a must have.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro BFF-LPRO-20025B-RP 200mm Blue LED Case Fan
Pros: I was researching computer parts for my buddy and was looking at parts I had and realized I hadn't wrote a review on this super fan. Well, I cant have that. This black/blue led fan replaced a clear/white led side door fan on a Corsair 500r. I ordered what I thought was a black cause blue LED set up....but I was wrong. Anyway! This fan puts out some crazy air. It says 900rpms but it lies. My system board and Corsair Link says its around 1100rpms. Its not very loud and is well built. I thought with it being a black fan that it wouldn't light up very well. I was wrong. The black fan with the blue led gives it a nice warm blue color. Love the fact it his lots of mounting holes. If it is ever on sale, get it. If its never on sale, get it. If your fan breaks down, get it. It might not be top name brand, but that doesn't mean it isn't top make.
Cons: Wish i had room for two!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its a nice PSU. 1200w is a great up grade from my 700w. I just purchased a R9 280x to crossfire with my 7970. I knew i needed some more power. I also overclocked my i7 4820k from 3.7 to 4.6ghz. Loved all the cords that game with her. Little bit bigger then I thought she would be. She did fit nicely in my Corsair 500r. So far so good on output. She has a nice look to her, strong and well built. All metal with a nice size fan. Cables are just long enough to fit around the back side of my motherboard and come back around out my rubber grommets. Nice looking crossfire cables for the cards tipped in red so not to confuse you.Those cables are flat in which I like. All in all you are going to get your bang for your buck. I have had it for little under a week and she hasn't skipped a beat. Shes been on for 3 days none stop. I don't bit mine with her but i do game heavy. If she gives me any trouble best believe ill write a update!
Cons: Only con I had was that she was bigger then she looked. I should had done some more research so thats on me. All I had to do was drop down from a 140mm floor fan to a 120mm, no biggy. Not worth a egg at all.
Other Thoughts: I dont think LEPA is a name brand but its a nice looking and working PSU. If you short on crash and dont have like 400 bucks to drop on one of the top name brand PSUs this one doesnt hurt the bank.READ FULL REVIEW
