MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectX 11 N660TI-2GD5/OC 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheaper than other OC'ed GTX 660Ti

Cons: With its inadequate cooling, this card probably shouldn't have been factory overclocked. After installing mine, I noticed my games just crash randomly about 5 to 10 minutes in. I got really frustrated so I downloaded MSI's Afterburner and Kombuster utilities. I ran the stress test in Kombuster, and sure enough, it crashes after about 5 minutes. The GPU temp reaches a scorching 90C. Next, I went into Afterburner utility and decreased the GPU clock (which is OC'ed by default), to the stock speed of regular GTX 660Ti, and no surprise here, Kombuster and games no longer crash.

Other Thoughts: I will be returning this card to newegg for another brand. Luckily newegg came through and said they will be providing a pre-paid label for the RMA. It would have been insult to injury to pay another 15-20 dollars to ship this insured back to newegg, for a manufacturer's defect.

NORCO RPC-4220 4U Rackmount Server Chassis w/ 20 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS 6G Drive Bays (Mini SAS Connector)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap for what you get.

Cons: Also cheap, as in cheaply made. The backplanes were warped and I didn't discover this until months into ownership when I tried adding more drives into the other rows. Forget about contacting Norco. They will gladly sell you a piece of junk but will not stand behind their products. My company will be moving towards something with better support in the future. Supermicro comes to mind.

Other Thoughts: The fan they included sound like jet engines. There's a guy selling a custom made fan plate for 120mm but it'll cost you. Despite numerous and numerous requests to Norco to make 120mm fan plates, they refuse to listen to their customers. Figures. Also watch your fingers while installing components. Some serious bloody cuts can result if you don't watch them.

Corsair Force 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: unknown

Cons: I was using an Intel G2 SSD which was working perfectly. I just needed more space. I expected a smooth transition to this drive but when I turn the computer on, all I get is the message "SMART command failed". I cannot install Windows on it. I should have stuck with what worked and just upgraded to a bigger Intel drive. Oh well, it's going back tomorrow. I did give them a chance. If you want reliability stick with the Intel. That's what everyone's saying and I find out first hand it's true.
