ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 ZT-90101-10P 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does just about everything I ask of it. Big improvement over my AMD Radeon 7870, 4GB of RAM helps power my two 23" monitors and my third 27" monitor to boot! Loads of features, and was nice and compact, compared to the other cards with triple fans. Still stays very cool and power draw is comparatively low to other cards in its class. Runs everything from Space Engineers to Supreme Commander to Minecraft and back!

Cons: Coil whine is apparent when playing some games and apps, most notable FaceRig. Google what "Coil Whine" is to see if you can put up with it or not. It's not a big issue for me, but when I am recording on FaceRig, I need to throw away the recorded audio and overlay a new clean track because of it, which is a bit of an annoyance.

Also, although the card says that it is HDCP compliant over HDMI, it doesn't allow my 27" monitor to play Blu-ray on it over HDMI (says it is not HDCP compatible), even though my old card did. I can play movies just fine on my two 23" monitors, but the second I move the

Also the monitor plays Blu-Ray when a standalone Blu-ray player is connected to it, so the monitor is DEFINITELY HDCP compatible.

Other Thoughts: If you want a triple monitor setup, this is the card for you. But be aware that Blu-ray MAY NOT play on some monitors connected to this card...

Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: Good value for what you get, 3 good fans, good layout and finish, some unexpected features (removable PSU intake filter).

Cons: Really flimsy (ESPECIALLY the plastic face plate), thumb screws are really tight, had to use a screwdriver, which defeat the purpose of tool-less thumb screws...

Other Thoughts: This may be more of an issue with shipping, but the flimsiness of the front face plate didn't help: When I picked up the cardboard box containing the case after getting it, I heard rattling. Hoping it was just some loose screws or something, I opened the box and slid it out. Immediately the ENTIRE FRONT FACE PLATE fell on the floor. The plastic standoffs holding the front face plate in place were sheared off completely, all 6 of them. No other damage to the case was found.

It effectively means I lose the nice layout for the Power/Reset buttons and HDD LED, the front panel items
(2 USB 2.0, audio and SATA connectors) and all frontal dust protection. Fortunately, being that this is a functional build for LAN parties, I'm just going to duct tape the front panel board and buttons to the FDD bay, go front plate-less and call it day.

It wouldn't be worth my time and effort to RMA what essentially amounts to a $25 case after rebates. Rosewill: Could you send me a new front face plate? Everything else is OK. Otherwise, I won't bother shipping this case back. I'll just live with it as is...

tl;dr - If you're building a nice machine, you may want to steer clear of this case... I guess you get what you pay for. :P

5 out of 5 eggs Works! 10/16/2013

This review is from: Link Depot HDMI-2-HDMI 6 ft. Black HDMI TO HDMI A/V Cable

Pros: Cheap, works as it should. Enough length so that it's not too short for most applications, but not unwieldy either. Quality is good, not noticeable drop in picture quality.

Cons: none so far...
