Pros: During the release of gta v my current card at the time was a r9 270x was fine up until it started artifacting and overheating, i needed a replacement and saw this card at 179.99 with a free game i decided to look into the 960 series. upon reading i learned this card has a 10% improvement over the 760 which is better than my 270x. so for the lower price and power consumption of my previous card, i jumped and bought it. came packaged very well. lots of accessories, one of which is totally useless because the card doesn't have a mini HDMI, unless i'm missing something. gaming wise it was a huge jump in gta v from 40fps to closer to 60fps with a few more settings turned up.
Cons: was disappointed to learn this gpus fan stays on, unlike the higher priced cards which wont spin up tell 61c. its the loudest component in my system, i can hear it over my noctua fans. but that's not why i'm taking an egg away, its because of the fan software not implemented on the card it self. the card is still extremely quiet. barley audible.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: its cute
Cons: where do i start? well like every review said the panel came scratched and well it did. the other panel with cables pushed the side panel out and bent the **** out of it and would not sit flush at all. the top fan that came with the case had a bad bearing and screeched of and on. the gpu bracket sucks, i had to wriggle and wiggle and move my gpu all about to even get the gpu to fit, and one it was secured with power i couldnt get the window panel back on, not even close, i tried and it was close to breaking my motherboard, overall i hate hate this case. now im not a picky man but this case just did not work for me in any way what soever. and i love corsair with alot of passion. this was a disappointment.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: extremely stable, great color scheme, 4 dimms slots, 2 pci express slots. right angled sata and USB 3.0 connectors. overall i love this board, I've used it like 4 times and haven't had a single issue. will not hesitate to use it again.
Cons: the dimm slots are fairly close to the gpu so they limit your gpu choice a little bit, like if you gpu has a little extra on the top side, only 3 4 pin fan connectors, why not 4 or five? why no eight pin? if it supports a i7 it should have a 8 pin so it doesn't throttle.READ FULL REVIEW
