Pros: The Sapphire R9 270x "Toxic Ediion" over all is a well built card. Doesn't seem cheap or flimsy like my past experience with other GPU's. Also has triple fans and a metal back plate for extra cooling. I've owned this card for about 4 months now and never ran into any issues. On the other hand it's quiet and usually stays around 31 degrees celsius (87'F) when idle which is a pretty decent temp for this bad boy!
Cons: None so far but this card may be a nuisance for other people since you do need to make sure that your case/tower can support the size/length of this card.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy with the R9 270x "Toxic Edition" it's a great card for the price. You won't be disappointed, especially if you're on a low/medium budget. I'm considering buying another one of these cards so I can Crossfire them. You definitely get a bang for your buck with this card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: I am very please that I made the decision to purchase this case. The Corsair Carbide 200R all around is a solid case. Great for the price, very solid and lots of room. I have a Sapphire Radeon R9 270x Toxic Edition in this case which the card is 12' long in length and still have plenty of room to work with.
Other Thoughts: I must say for how much this case cost, this was a great buy, especially if you're on a budget. This case helped me be able put more money towards other parts for my new gaming build and still have an overall solid case as well. All I can say is that I am very pleased with this case and it didn't break the bank really either.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice looking power supply, feels like a solid unit for the most part.
Cons: After doing some research I've come to find out that many clients are having noise and coil whine issues with newer PSU's by Corsair. These are the same issues that I am having with the Corsair TX750M. Don't like how every time I click my mouse, scroll or hover over items the power supply makes loading noises related to my movements. This unit also gets pretty warmer than what I expected it to.
Other Thoughts: Not sure if I received a faulty PSU but I am doing a RMA on this device in replace for a new one. When I receive my new replacement, I will write another review to see if it was just the first one that I received. If so I will be a satisfied customer, if NOT then I will no longer be supporting or purchasing PSU's from Corsair. If I have to do another RMA on my new replacement then I will definitely be looking for a different manufacture to purchase a power supply from. Like I said I'm not the only one who is having these issues with Corsair's newer power supplies. Even when my PC is idle the PSU still continues to make these weird loading noises which to me seems like a faulty PSU which is just a matter of time so I want to be on the safe side. I also owned the original Corsair TX750 back in 2012 and man was I a happy camper. All I have to say is that Corsair is suppose to be one of the better companies when it comes to these types of units and now they really need to step their game up in my opinion. I also don't like how the fan spins when only it needs to, I'd rather have a PSU where the fan is always spinning so that I know it's always running to try and keep the unit cool at all times. What is Corsair doing?READ FULL REVIEW
