LG 31MU97-B Black 31
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Supports high resolution modes

Cons: only up to 30 Hz refresh through HDMI
Only on Display Port is 60 Hz refresh supported and this is with only a high quality cable. Not all DP cables are created equal. Took me 3 tries/ 3 different cables before I sustained a stable display with no random signal drops.

Other Thoughts: Only using the DP ( display port ) is 60 Hz refresh supported.
I have found that even using some cables that say they are DP 1.4 compliant that I would get random drops of signal. Aggravating!!!! After trying 3 different brands I found one that works! From reading other reviews on this cable other users found that it too also started dropping the signal months later. Jury is still out on a good quality DP cable.

EVGA 06G-P4-3793-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK Superclocked Signature 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small package, efficient, quiet cooler, uses only 41 amps so a 850 watt psu is usually more than adequate.
Works without any hiccups, silent as can be, performs better than expected.

Cons: Expensive as hell, CUDA acceleration was not as dramatic as I thought it would be.

Other Thoughts: After reading many reviews on the AMD products that had failed rather quickly and without warning, I'm a Navy vet and I prefer my equipment to be rock solid and reliable, so I looked elsewhere.
While this may not be the fastest card that is out there, nothing this small and this quiet exists in the AMD product line and I am working with a Mini ITX form factor, so it's a no brainer to choose this reliable GFX solution.
Other AMD solutions were too physically large to fit too.

5 out of 5 eggs Redlines my i7-4790k and bounces it off the temp limiter! 11/23/2014

This review is from: EVGA Z97 Stinger Wi-Fi LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: All I can say is WOW! I have spent weeks trying to achieve the best overclock on some of my builds and this- using this motherboard is crazy simple, just a single setting for adjusting the overclock. Usually I had to adjust 3 or 4 different clock ratios to achieve what this board does in one setting.
On top of it, I have never in my life been able to achieve a 500 Mhz OC using a stock cooler and the only reason I can't even go higher is that the CPU is throttling down due to thermal stress limits- yep, not a single lockup, it simply throttles down.

Cons: only one M.2 port and that is used for the wifi /BT module.
This could use a 4th fan header. It does have 3 fan headers that can handle 1 amp each and are of the 4/3 pin variety. (1) psu fan header, (1) case fan header, and (1) cpu fan header. Considering this is meant for the performance/enthusiast crowd, most cases use 3 or more fans. EVGA could have thoughtfully dropped a couple of y adapters for sharing fan headers.
I am getting my soldering iron out and making my own harness to tap into an unused PSU HD power connector so I can make use of the (3) other case fan locations on my Corsair Obsidian 250D PC case

Other Thoughts: Simply amazing performance in something the size of a dessert plate of a form factor.
Having a temperature display built onto the mobo is an awesome feature that allows you to simply look through a window on the case to monitor CPU temps.
