ICY DOCK MB153SP-B 3 in 2 SATA Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Convenient HDD Storage 01/14/2015

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB153SP-B 3 in 2 SATA Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module

Pros: Works as advertised, got this to clear up room for a water cooling setup in the bottom of my Corsair 600T case and it fits well for only taking up two 5.25" slots and store up to 3 3.5" drives. My temps look about average, maybe better, than they did before but that a minor issue. Again it comes down to functionality - which this nails right on the spot.

Cons: None

ASUS VS278Q-P Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's a LOT of desktop if you utilize two of these in parallel to each other (obviously), but in all honesty you won't be disappointed. These things look great, and the clarity is spot on. I've got both of mine running at 2560x1440 which is a bit large, meaning everything is small, but the amount of desktop space utilized by programmes that are open is also very small depending if you have them full screen or not.

Cons: None really...

Other Thoughts: If I were to add one thing, maybe they could have sized the side panels down a bit to not have a gap between the two monitors, but most would be satisfied with just the one monitor, but those who like to have all that "real estate" you may want to consider if having your mouse jump about an inch or so to the other screen would bother you - I can deal with it but it'd be nice to have a thinner boarder.

EVGA 04G-2981-KR GeForce GTX 980 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 ACX 2.0 PCI Express 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Between it's 284W power efficiency during the most demanding times (F@H at FULL), to doing absolutely nothing... this thing pretty much owns anything out there. If you know about F@H you'll know it taxes the GPU at minimum 95% during operation, with that said I keep my temps at approx. 54-59*C @ 60% fan speed, yes you can hear it a bit but then again if you're trying to keep it cool who cares right? Haven't done a proper bench on this but when I do it'll be put with three other 980s to see what they can do together, but I also plan to do it individually... either way the card is something else.

Oh, forgot to mention, when it "thinks" that it's not hot enough (I.E. target temperature) it won't run the fans at all, so when you're not folding, mining, or gaming then it just sits there but when you start to game it still "thinks" about turning them on and if it does it runs them way below where they can go - again it's a beast.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Well like others have said the $550 price tag kinda sucks, but you know what? I've learned from buying cheap-end video cards, not like buying a 760 or something, but those really, really cheap cards... they fail to run anything. At least with this you'll get some bang for your buck, and if you mine it may actually make you some money back on your investment.

Although... I own four of these, that'd take a lot of Bitcoin to make up for that investment.
