MSI R9 270X GAMING 2G Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs all my games very well.
Quiet - Fans idle at 18% and Ive never seen them past 25% when gaming.

Cons: Requires two 6pins which could be an issue for some modular PSUs that don't have a lot of ports.
Fan speeds above ~35% become quite audible. - Only an issue if you want to set up your own fan profiles.

Other Thoughts: Quick note on the screen flickering/shaking issue.
I am unsure if I have actually experienced it. I have experienced shaking with 1 specific game with certain circumstances, so this might just be an issue with the game.
I cant make a definitive answer on which is culprit though.

This is a notable upgrade from my old 5770. I don't play a lot of intensive games, but it is nice to be able to play new releases with no need to turn graphic settings down, and its really nice to no longer hear my graphics card through my headphones

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Because the antenna is on a cord you can have it in a position where your case doesn't block the signal.
Supports 5Ghz .
Comes with a low profile bracket if you want to install it into a slim machine.

Cons: You do need to manually install drivers for Win7. - Windows 10 Tech preview I didn't.
The two cords for the antenna are quite easy to mix up.
No Bluetooth.

Other Thoughts: Mixing up the "Ant1" and "Ant2" cables halves your connection speed, which is very easy to mix up if you have to screw them in at an awkward angle behind a desk.

It would be nice if the cords were a bit different from each other (like making the end of one have a black stripe or something)
My solution was that I put a little black rubber ring, from an unused hard drive bracket around Antenna 2.

Cooler Master Sleeve Bearing 120mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators (Value 4-Pack)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's a 4 pack, should be more then enough for 1 or 2 PCs.
Likely to be better than the fans that come in cheap/old cases.

Cons: Well they are cheap fans, so don't expect them to be as good as the more expensive ones.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't call these "silent" but they are quieter than a lot of fans Ive seen in prebuilt machines or cheap cases.

Ive always had a pack or two of these laying around since they usually come in handy when a fan is dying, or someone puts their finger in the case and breaks a fanblade.
I'll have to stress though. These aren't that great of fans, but they do preform better then one would expect from a $2-4 fan.
Their general usefulness and price are the only reason Id give this 5 eggs.
