Pros: It's probably a fine laptop.
Cons: The exact thing that happened to Robert G. happened to me. Massive disappointment and waste of time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ENERMAX TB SILENCE UCTB12 120mm Case Fan
Pros: These fans deliver. I've got two in my HTPC case and they don't sound like anything. I run them full speed at all times just because I can, though they do have a little hum to them.
Other Thoughts: I went through a couple of brands claiming their fans were quiet before discovering these. They're the real deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I cannot stress upon you how quiet this card is. It makes no sense.
Even under full load, the fans don't go above 60% and don't sound like anything.
I'm running this in an HTPC case and it's excellent, even though the case is cramped and airflow is garbage. If noise is a significant concern to you -- unless you're going to do liquid cooling -- then get any version of this card immediately.
Cons: The shroud sticks up past the card's board and mounting bracket by quite a lot. If you have a sleek or tiny case that has a cover panel which is flush with or close to the expansion card mounts, you may not be able to install this card.
The cost of the extra 2GB on this version is a gamble right now because its worth relies on game developers taking advantage of big VRAM capacities any time soon. I took that gamble because of the possibility that the new consoles will make developers do just that.
Other Thoughts: The GTX 760 is the GTX 760, so I don't really feel the need to go on about the card's performance. That said, it does indeed perform very well. I can play pretty much any game on the highest settings. ShadowPlay is awesome. Even the 3DTV features are starting to work really well (Tomb Raider looked great, still haven't figured out YouTube 3D).
