EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

1 out of 5 eggs Cheap Construction, Coil Whine 10/07/2014

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: Faster and better in every way than my Gigabyte GTX 670, except in one matter.
See Cons

Cons: Cheap, the card creaks and chips just holding it.
Insane Coil Whine.
Leave's much to be desired, it just looks like a 200 dollar card aesthetically.

Other Thoughts: So I ordered this card and waited for reviews to come in, while the card was in transit I read on and just got a bad feeling about this card based on the ACX 1.0 reviews and the other reviews based on the ACX 2.0 model, I had hoped I would get lucky like other reviewers on this site, but my hopes were dashed when I started to hear coil whine while I ran a few tests, I see Evga relying back saying its something in peoples computer that are causing it, however how can that be the case when my current Gigabyte GTX 670 with the Whirlwind cooler does not exhibit the same symptoms. Nothing in my rig changes other than the graphics card, in truth every single manufacturer has coil whine. from what I read its a lower count with the other manufacturers.

In short I'm out cash and taking a loss, this was returned the next day to Newegg.

Buy at your own risk, Im sure Evga fanboys will rate this low, but I care less about those people, Im a consumer first and foremost and I should let other consumers know what I saw based on my testing and my observations.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Been running for 5 months without any issues.

Cons: I cant find any cons

Other Thoughts: Mine works, I supposed I got lucky and got a working one, seems like these seagate hard drives are a real mess. To be honest all the hard drives I bought from newegg are still working, including those 3TB that are atrociously bad, its a luck and packaging.

Rosewill BlackHawk-Ultra Full Tower Gaming Computer Case, support up to HPTX MB, Support Dual PSU, come with 8 cooling Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Huge
Comes with Caster Wheels, makes it easier to move.
Lots of hard drive slots for a file storage server.

Cons: Very hard to open case. You will have to cast Might and Power on yourself, then pray to Jupiter and Odin for super strength, then invite Hercules and the Hulk over and then you will be able to open this case.

I bench press 5,000,000 milligrams of steel, so I'm pretty Buff.

Other Thoughts: Pretty good case, I love it, leaves no desire to get anything else, very future proof. Fits my H100i and even bigger.
Lots of Hard drive bays.
Lots of Front USB ports
Might want to get a fully modular power supply.
Also you will have to even out your cables on the back side of this case since space is very minimal, my NZXT 410 Tempest Elite has more room than this case if you compare. Once you get this and even out where cables go case cover slides over, otherwise you will have to force it in possibly damaging your cables in the process.

Rosewill if you read this add another half an inch to the side where cables route and you will have a winner.
