ASUS GeForce GTX 670 GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great while it worked.

Cons: As you can see from numerous reviewers here and elsewhere, this card design was clearly defective - hence it being discontinued. When I called ASUS tech support they tried to tell me it was an nvidia driver update that caused the problem - clearly already knowing that was not the case. Now they will not give me an advanced replacement because the card is no longer in production. That means either I buy a new card or be computer-less for however long it takes for them to repair it...and then do I really want this card back, even repaired?

Other Thoughts: I'm an ASUS fanboy. I pretty much have ASUS everything and no problems before this. Hardware sometimes fails. That doesn't bother me so much. I am very disappointed in the deceptive CS rep who obviously knows these cards are failing but tried to make other excuses for the problem. Also they should be replacing failed cards with functional models rather than rejecting advanced replacement because they had to discontinue the defective design. Not the way to retain your loyal customers, ASUS. It's really not that hard to be decent to your customers and do the right thing, is it?

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Incredibly quiet and fast. Superb value.

Cons: It is not an SSD.

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace my old Raptor 150gb drive that I was using as a boot drive. Boot times, game loads...pretty much everything feels snappier now. You literally can not hear this drive running. Seek times were much quicker on my Raptor but I honestly can not think of a single thing that does not seem faster with this drive. I partitioned off the 1st 100mb (short stroked) as the boot partition for faster operation and it really seems to work.

Cooler Master HAF 922 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Roomy, excellent cooling, attractive. Top access buttongs and USB/audio ports make it good for under-the-desk installations. Tool-less drive bays make swap-outs a cinch. Mobo tray cutout for rear access to CPU HS retention mechanism for easy swaps.

Cons: I had a few problems with the side panels. The screws do not line up correctly and require some jimmying to get in. Also the patterned cut-out on the side panel for the fan is bowed inward so that the fan hub scrapes against it with certain fans. I had to try a few before I found one with the hub recessed enough to not rub.

Other Thoughts: This is the best bargain case out there now for the overclocker. It is really an amazing looking case. Beware, though, as it is bigger (Wider and deeper) than it seems in the pictures.
