Total graphical annihilation

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100351VXSR
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100351VXSR

Pros: All games run VERY well at 1920x1080, all set at maximum settings. Backlit Sapphire title is a nice touch Keeps quite cool VERY GOOD VALUE, seriously. The price:performance is awesome

Cons: Fans sound like a vacuum when at 60%+ however the only way I could get them to that was the manual settings in MSI afterburner. This card looks sick, but the bottom is pretty boring. No backplate? The sapphire title lighting bleeds out the top a little bit

Overall Review: Very good card. No issues whatsoever, these driver problems people talk about are nowhere to be found. I believe it is the fastest single-GPU card on the market.

Great motherboard, USB sucks.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Looks pretty cool Overclocks well Bios are... interesting No issues installing the aftermarket heatsink or anything here, everything went all good without issues. Lots of USB 3.0 ports. But.... (See cons)

Cons: Most of the USB 3.0 ports excluding 2 of them don't work. Big aftermarket heatsinks (such as the CM hyper 212 evo/+) may get in the way of your RAM slots

Overall Review: Dropped an egg due to the USB ports being non-functional. Otherwise GREAT motherboard.
