This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, comes with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: -Perfect Size, Spacious but not too big.
-Amazing build quality, eSATA and USB3.0 connectors.. big bonus. Zero rough edges.
-Rubber fitted slots that make cable management a breeze. All the rubber slots for Sata/PC power and lights and everything have specific rubber slots right under the motherboard that looks extremely neat... very well thought out placement for those slots I can't stress that enough.
-Massive Fans... I mean it. The case itself converts 2 Molex powers to 6 fan power slots. Three of them are labeled Fans "A1-A2-A3" and similarly for B1-etc... The way it works the fans plugged into A slots can be controlled by 1 fan knob and the ones for B are controlled by the second knob. That makes for good airflow control where you can have exhaust and intake separately controlled.
-Tool-less design for EVERYTHING (except screwing in mobo and PSU obviously) That is such a massive plus. Very comfortable thumbscrews and intuitive hard drive and CD ROM slots.
Cons: -I have some beef with the advertised LED light. It's extremely weak and only affects the front grill every so slightly. Easily remedied by buying 8 red cathode lights :D :D. (gotta make that stuff glow bling bling! :P)
-The top movable "grill" has a very stiff slider. Uncomfortable stiffness with that... it works but the stiffness is annoying (I'm really just nitpicking at this point).
Other Thoughts: @120 Dollars when I got it can't beat this deal.
It might seem like a hefty price tag for some of you out there for a case. And it is understandable. But if you buy this it will last you a very long time. You will be upgrading your mobo/CPU and parts over and over again and this case will live on. A good case is always worth the investment.
Pros: -Works exactly as advertised
Cons: -None so far
Other Thoughts: For 7 dollars.. can't complain at all. Also don't use the CD for the drivers let windows download the best drivers for you or download the latest online. Nothing worse than old drivers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1- One of the cheaper 7970's you can find
2- Factory overclocked (50 MHz boost and youre at GHZ edition speeds with way less cost!)
3- Runs surprisingly cool. I live in a very hot part of California and this card has not given me any trouble.
4- Great performer and very overclock friendly, got it to 1050MHz easy without even changing voltage settings. DO NOT buy GHz edition
5- Who doesn't love dual bios switch
Cons: 1- Have to deal with AMD subpar drivers, not that big of a deal though AMD drivers got much better over the last few years.
2- Fan gets audible around the ~40% mark, not really that much of a con but the fans are definitely not on the quiet side.
Other Thoughts: Big card, make sure your case can take it, dimensions for reference: 275(L)x115(W)x36(H) mm Size.
Make sure you have the PSU for this, requires two 8-pin PCIE power connectors, this card needs around 350Watts of clean power.
A 750Watt PSU is recommended but 650 can work if it can provide a high power single rail. Any less will cause your card to fail and artifact then you will come here give the card 1 egg and complain like all these others I see when you haven't done your research.
Comes with 2 Molex to an 8-pin PCIE connection convertor and a fairly long HDMI cable.
Haven't tried Saphire custom OC software yet.
