Great!

EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Bought 2 of these on 8/13. Amazing performance compared to GTX470 SLI, especially in BF3. I went from 40-50fps on 1080p everything on low/disabled to minimum 150+fps on 1080p everything on ULTRA. However, Arma3 was not affected at all, absolutely zero difference or at least I did not see any when playing with 25+ players and dozens of NPCs. I'm getting 25-45 fps with 4770k CPU (stock) and 8GB RAM. I blame that on Bohemia, not the cards. GPU utilization about 10-15%.

Cons: Health hazard! My heart rate, and blood pressure went up when I saw the total price for two of these. Thank goodness my wife doesn't check my CC activity or it's either divorce or being forced to buy ridiculous expensive shoes. 3 year warranty, but it should be sufficient as I replace GPUs every 2 or 3 generations.

Pros: Looks great, touchscreen, prints fast, easy to set up, wireless, 3 year warranty.

Cons: Drains ink!!! Even when it's selected to print black only, it still uses cyan. Right now, black and cyan are almost gone, but magenta and yellow are almost full. Printhead needs to be constantly cleaned.

Overall Review: Ownership since June 2010 (today's date November 2012)

Pros: 3-PCI-Ex16 ( overkill ? )

Cons: nvgts and cdrom bugs cause system freezes and crashes. The "fix" that is on EVGA website doesn't work anymore with latest BIOSes

Overall Review: Could be better

FAST

SUNON KD1212PTB1-6A Case Cooling Fan
SUNON KD1212PTB1-6A Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Very fast

Cons: A bit loud

Decent

Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lots of space and ventilation. No front door. Simple design.

Cons: Tool-less PCI is very annoying. The power and reset buttons should be somewhere in a more neutral position. I have my PC on the floor to my right, so I have to lean far to get them. I really can't put it anywhere else.

Overall Review: Easily fits the biggest air CPU coolers.
