Pros: Works well with my MSI 1080 Dukes.
Overall Review: It stinks when you pay for two day shipping and fedex takes three days. How lame is that.
Pros: It's quiet, It looks good. More then enough cables to do what you want. It's modular. The price is also very reasonable.
Overall Review: I have this in my Phanteks Enthoo Pro TG case. I have no issues with it. It runs everything that is inside the box with no effort. Will buy this psu again. Great job evga.
Pros: Purchased this along with my halos. Easy install. Everything worked out of the box.
Overall Review: Will buy again for another build. Phanteks has done a great job with their halos and the starter kit. Will buy again for other builds. Keep up the good work Phanteks.
Pros: Easy install. Lights look great.
Overall Review: I'm rocking 5 120mm halos and one 140 halo. These things are boss. These lights really make your case pop. Will buy again. If anyone is looking for a less expensive alternative, this is the solution for you. Check them out, they are great.
Pros: Easy install. Love the white heat sinks. Rgb lighting is great. Runs at rated speed.
Overall Review: Looking to buy a second set of ram to fill the other two ram slots. Will buy again for other builds.
Pros: Looks good. Does the job well. Not real expensive.
Overall Review: Have this installed in my nephews Phanteks Enthoo Pro TG case. Installation was a breeze. Keeps the 8700k cool. It idles at about 32c. I personally think that this aio is just as good as the Corsair or NZXT offerings. I also have this cooler. I'm waiting for some other parts to come in so I can complete my build. Would buy again.
Pros: This case is very roomy. Love the tempered glass panel. Plenty of wire management space. The white interior makes everything else pop. The case is a great size, not to big, not small either. This case can accommodate just about anything you want to put in it.
Overall Review: I purchased two of these cases at the same time. They arrived on time and in great shape. I think from now on phanteks will be my go -to case. Will buy again.
Pros: Easy installation and the card works great. No issues here.
Overall Review: I have had this sound card for over a year. It's solid and dependable. I would recommend this sound card to anyone.
Pros: Nice board, easy to set up, minimal lights.
Cons: Right now I'm running a zotac 680 4gb card. Card runs well. I also installed an MSI 580 Lightning 1.5gb card as a physx card. Went into my Nvidia software and the 580 does not show up, at all. Then, just for the giggles of it I removed both cards and installed a pair of PNY GTX 8800 ultra cards, they both appear in the nvidia software, but physx cards. Does anybody have a clue as to why this motherboard will only recognize 680 and not the 580?
Overall Review: Should have went with an X99 motherboard instead.
Pros: Where does one start? It's big and beautiful it keeps your rig plenty cool. I kind of wish that Cooler Master would have kept this particular case in production. It holds the longest graphics cards-13.88 inches. Overall construction is great. The case is beautiful to look at. Very sexy.
Cons: None for me.
Overall Review: I had one of these back in '09. I really loved it. Unfortunately, it got damaged during a move. But alas! I found a brand new one in the box with all of the goodies about 2-3 years ago. I plan on doing a fresh build in it with water cooling. Great case. Better than the Antec 1200.
Pros: Compact size, powerful. Runs anything and everything that I have hooked up to it.
Cons: The only con that I can think of is the BFG is out of business.
Overall Review: I have two of these power supplies. Both are still rocking after all of these years. Great psu, would by again, if they were available. Come back BFG, Come back!! Lol. I know that isn't possible. But I wish it was. They made great graphics cards and psu's.
Pros: It's sleek, looks great, quiet and powerful. This card makes a world of difference when you are gaming. I like this graphics card so much, I'm buying a second one here real soon.
Overall Review: If you have the money and you need to upgrade, this is the card to get. You won't regret it.
Pros: Great heat sinks. Like the color. Fast memory. Runs a little faster than expected. Great company.
Overall Review: I have this memory plugged into an Asus Sabertooth 990 FX R2 Gen 3. Went into the memory profile and bam, memory runs at about 2420. I'm also using the AMD FX 95990 8 core cpu which is running at about 5.117. Machine is running great. I was going to switch over to Intel. But I figure since this machine is running so well, I'll just stick with AMD.
Pros: Triple fans, pretty lights, quiet and fast when it works
Cons: I now have to rma my second card. The card ran well for a little while, than it started doing random freezes. I would have to either reset the computer or completely shut it off and restart. I wasn't sure what the problem was at first. So I replaced the ram with a known working set. The problem persisted. Changed out the psu with a know good one, the problem persisted, changed out cpu's with one from another working rig. Still have the problem.
Deleted all of the AMD software and drivers, removed the card, installed an NVidia 580, installed the drivers, and wouldn't you know, the problem went away. So I figure that there was something wrong with the gpu.
I really want to give Sapphire a chance. I just hope that my next card will work. If not, I'll stick with NVIDIA.
Overall Review: Just really disappointed right now. I guess it's the luck of the draw. I forgot to mention that I did re-install the AMD drivers three times, same problem. Even did a clean install of windows 7 still had the problem.
Pros: Great board, fast. Plenty of bells and whistles. Uefi bios is easy to work with. Cool color scheme.
Overall Review: I have had this board for a little over a year mow. It's still going strong and is very dependable. It now has an AMD FX 95990 cpu, clocked to 5.1 and 16gb of 2400 ram. I would recommend this board to anyone. That is if ASUS brought it back. That is a good idea!! Hey Asus bring this board back. It's sweet. Thank you Asus for making a great product and thank you Newegg for carrying this product.
Pros: Fast memory. Pretty led lights. Love the software. Easy install. received on time and undamaged. Overclocks fairly well.
Overall Review: I also have a red/green set also on my motherboard. I must say that it makes for an interesting light show. The software is great. It works well with my asus amd 990fx r2 gen3 mobo. No issues. Memory is currently running around 1900mhz coupled with an amd fx 9590 running @ 5.1ghz. Love the memory. Would buy again. Good job Crucial.
Pros: Easy install, fast, great looking led lights.
Overall Review: I don't know why people are having an issue with the MOD utility. I have down loaded the software anad have zero issues. I have this memory on an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2 Gen 3 board. The memory is currently running at 1880. No issues. I also have an AMD FX 9590 clocked at 5.017 out of the box. Idles at 34c. Great machine. Would recommend and would buy again.
Pros: Cheap price. Good overclock out of the box. Would buy again.
Overall Review: I have this chip mated to an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Gen 3 board. Running Mushkin 1600 memory. It's cooled by an Asus H110. I must say that I'm very impressed with this chip. As an experiment, I clocked this cpu to 5.0. Left there for a week. No issues. The memory was running @ 1930. The idle temps were @ about 42c on load it went up to about 65. I must also say that the H110 is an impressive cooler. AMD makes a great chip.
Pros: This case is just the right size for my needs. Plenty of room for fans and water cooling. Will be using the Corsair H110 in this case. Case is pleasing to the eye but still looks all business. Can't wait to see how well it cools.
Cons: None that I can see. No cons.
Overall Review: Can't wait to get a pair of AMD Radeon 290X cards to put in here.
Pros: Plays my games very nicely. Fans are pretty quiet.ood price for them.
Cons: I have two of these puppies. But only one works the way that it should. One of the cards idles at about 37c while the other idles between 47 and 49. I'm not sure what to think about it.
Overall Review: This is my first foray into the red team. I used to be a NVIDIA peson. No more. I have tried to run the card by itself. I have four fans on the side of my Corsair case blowing directlly on the card and the temps still won't budge. I guess I just got a so-so card.
But overall I like the AMD/Radeon cards.
Pros: Easy set up. Great colors. Enough sata ports for me. Can run tri-sli if I want. Board is fast beast. Runs cool even with passive cooling on the north bridge.
Cons: no cons really.
Overall Review: I would buy again. I look at the LED/debug screen and it's flashing the numbers 26,27,28,29,30 and 31. I don't think that those are the temps of my cores because according to EVGA Eleet program my cores on my cpu are in the mid 30's. The board runs fine, so I'm not sure what those codes mean. Or how to address the issue. I also have the newest bios update.
Pros: Great heatsinks. Fast for ddr2. Price was where I thought it would be. I like the color of the heatsinks.
Overall Review: I have this memory on a EVGA 780i ForTheWin motherboard. Coupled with an Intel QX9650 Extreme OC'd to 3.667. This machine is actually pretty quick. It might not be the fastest jollopy in the race, but it gets the job done. I only have one complaint--------It won't go to SubWay for me.
Pros: Super easy install. Size of the rad. Cools really great.
Overall Review: I hvae this right now on my EVGA 780i For The Win with an Intel core 2 duo E8500. The chip idles at about 32c. Can't wait to try this on my QX 9770 and QX9650.
Pros: The color, SLI, fast bvoard. Stays cool looks great in my case.
Cons: I have a pair of MSI GTX 580 Lightning cards in this thing. They look good, that's about it. I down loaded the beta drivers for SLI. I have SLI, but I can't game without the game locking up. I tried different sets of drivers just to get one card to function right for gaming. But, no luck.
Overall Review: The motherboard is great. It's fast. The price is right.But, the drivers really suck. Come on NVIDIA!!!!!! Get with the program!!!!!!!! Write some decent drivers!!!!! This board would be a monster if the drivers would work without all of the headache. Did nvidia hire some of the old ATI driver writers? It sure seems like it. If they do not come up with some good drivers soon, I will switch to AMD.
Pros: 6 cores, easy install, fast as all get out. Runs pretty cool.
Overall Review: I have this bad boy clocked to 3.8 and it idles at 37c. It's being cooled by a Cooler Master V6. I used to be an Intel Core i7 guy. Not any more. I'm really enjoying this cpu. This cpu is mated to an ASUS Crosshair V Formula along with 8gb of Mushkin Enhanced 1600 memory. So, if you want to run a six-core processor until Bulldozer shows up, this would be the one, IMHO.
I'm an AMD guy from now on. Thanks AMD for making a great processor!!!!
