This review is from: Rosewill Armer RX304-APU3-35B - External 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 3.0 & eSATA Connection, Aluminum Body, 80 mm Variable Speed Fan with On / Off Switch, LED Display Panel
Pros: Got this for my xbox one to use an external drive (WD Black 2TB) since the internal xbox hard drive is slow and non upgrade-able. So far it has yet to disappoint. The temp readout on the front is really nice. Haven't seen temps higher than 23 degrees Celsius. The fan is quiet and seems to do the job. I know a lot of reviews on here criticize the quality control but the unit I received hasn't had any issues so far.
Cons: They mounted the fan the wrong way. Like another member pointed out, the fan is supposed to suck air in and discharge out the back of the enclosure. I checked this before installing my drive and found it to be installed wrong. Easy fix though. Just undo the screws and flip the fan around.
Other Thoughts: Rosewill makes good products for the price. I haven't had any issues with them and will continue to buy their productsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: ACX Cooler, 384 bit bus width, overclocked out of the box, comes with swag (hate that word, haha). Got 2 of these running in SLI on an Ivy bridge computer (3770 overclocked to 4.2 ghz and Asus Motherboard). There isn't a game I can't max out in 1080p resolution, which if I recall, Crysis 3 is still the most graphics intensive game to date. Was able to get a X10000 score in 3DMark11 with the gpu overclocked at 75mhz and the memory at 150 mhz with the voltage at +13mV.
Cons: Doesn't come with a backplate, Less memory than my GTX 680 FTW which had 4 GB.
Other Thoughts: Even thoough this card has less memory than some of the top tier cards from the 600 series, the 384 bit bus width makes up for it. You can see clearly if you run GPU-Z the difference in memory bandwidth. You really only need crazy amounts of VRAM if you are running a multiple monitor setup. I only have one so the 3GB GDDR5 is more than enough.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid Build quality, can run all of the games out right now. (medal of honor warfighter 60-70 fps and Far Cry 3 50-60 fps at 1080p on maxed out settings). Easy to overclock (running at +100 mhz on the gpu clock and 200 mhz on the memory clock). Great for ripping blu-rays with dvdfab. stickers and poster included are sweet.
Cons: none except for a I can't afford to get another one to run in SLI right now.
Other Thoughts: I had originally set out to go with a radeon 7970 ghz edition, but after some compatibility issues with a few different 7970's, i decided to try out this card. It has exceeded all of my expectations and with the right setup I'll bet it could out-perform the 7970. Nvidia just released a new set of drivers so make sure to download them from their site rather than installing the ones included on the cd. This card is also great for video encoding. I can encode blu rays at 85-90 fps where as my 7970 would only encode at 24 fps.READ FULL REVIEW
