Cooler Master V8 GTS - High Performance CPU Cooler with Horizontal Vapor Chamber and 8 Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Title says it, paired with a 4770K (currently 4.6) in a Asus Maximus Hero, replaced a Hyper 212 and runs about 10 degrees cooler at idle and under load, also tried it on a 4670K build that had a NH-D14 on it and cooled about 7 degrees cooler on that rig, will prob pick up another for the 4670K

Cons: None that I've encountered, mounting system a bit awkward for those with big fingers, have a pair of needle nose around

Other Thoughts: Think price a bit high, it's a behemoth, but does allow room for DRAM , better than many of the bigger coolers and seems to cool much better, will definitely be using again and again

EVGA 02G-P4-3664-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW Signature2 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It looks nice, except for the bubbling of the sticker on the cooler plate, has nice specs.

Cons: Doesn't work, put it on two of my systems I use to test components before using them in client builds and no output on either, checked both DVIs (the single link and the dual link) as well as HDMI and none work. Both systems have handled everything up through 680s in SLI so it's not the mobos or PSUs. Have seen a number of reviews of these cards not even posting into BIOS, think they need to take a look at their QC.

Other Thoughts: Card bought as new but appears to be a refurb, lots of marks on the back of the PCB where it appears ICs were pulled/replaced/resoldered and attempts made to clean it up, but obvious marks on the back of the PCB that shouldn't be there on a new card. Hoping the Egg will make things right, this new shipping they are using already cost me an extra 75 bucks.

ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5 Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is an Update to previous review - No Pros

Cons: When getting ready to send this back, was getting ready to mark out previous shipping labels and box labels, and discovered this was actually a Refurb, just as in BONDISDEAD's review below....Advertised as OPEN BOX but in actuality a refurb. Doesn't say much for Asus QC, along with the one reviewed by BONDISDEAD, that would make two supposedly reconditioned and tested cards that were sent (prob at the same time) from Asus that were defective...and being in the systems business, I would think that there is even more QC given towards refurbs than even the brand new off the line products, which doesn't say alot for their basic QC.

Other Thoughts: While not happy about this being advertised incorrectly am prob more upset that Asus is shipping out what are prob known defective products for sale.....and even if you buy brand new, if you RMA with them they generally send you a replacement that used or a refurb, very poor business practices
