Super Impressed!

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Mini, ZT-P10700G-10M, 8GB GDDR5
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Mini, ZT-P10700G-10M, 8GB GDDR5

Pros: Smaller than my GTX 670 Weighs nothing at all Silent when just sitting on the desktop or watching youtube Firestorm overclocking is just one button press Three DisplayPorts, 1x DVI and 1X HDMI means you can hook up all your screens!

Cons: There were no reviews of this thing when I ordered it, is it really THAT new!? No cons at all, how could there be when this thing costs $100 less than every other 1070 and performs exactly the same!

Overall Review: I simply turned off my computer, removed my old GTX670 and plugged this one in, turned the computer on and with no driver installation or anything, launched Forza Horizon 3 (reason I bought this card) and it runs the game 60fps with Ultra everything 1080P and 4x MSAA. Game looks INCREDIBLE and runs SO well! GTA 5 full graphics, runs perfect! Even BeamNG Drive runs much smoother now, always thought it was just my CPU! Love this card, the ONLY possible con would be that the two fans have a Zotac metallic badge placed on them, and they weren't centered. I removed them (weight reduction bruh) to ensure there wouldn't be any bearing wear over the years. Downloading Gears of War 4 right now that came with it, and already prepaid for Battlefield 1, this feeling of freedom to play whatever I want is incredible! Thank you Newegg =)

Excellent

Pros: Looks beautiful XMP no problem Comes with a case sticker! MOAR STICKARS

Cons: Took a week to get here, is never in stock, GSkill isn't making it anymore apparently.

Overall Review: I ordered this because it had the best timings I could find, sure it's only 2400mhz but at triple the price for high mhz with virtually zero difference in gaming/workloads what's the point other than wasting money. Then it turned out I ordered the last set! Couldn't find it ANYWHERE on any sites. I kept checking daily "just in case" and sure enough over a month later a kit popped up HERE of all places, so I ordered immediately at $100 LESS than the first kit and I'm happy. Runs 2400mhz solid, my 8700k's running 5ghz at 1.24v solid with it, and it again it looks fantastic. Couldn't be happier! Sure enough I ordered the last kit - again heh.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

ASUS ROG Ryuo 240 RGB AIO Liquid CPU Cooler 240mm Radiator (Dual 120mm 4-pin PWM Fans) with LIVEDASH OLED Panel and FanXpert Controls, 90RC0040-M0UAY0
ASUS ROG Ryuo 240 RGB AIO Liquid CPU Cooler 240mm Radiator (Dual 120mm 4-pin PWM Fans) with LIVEDASH OLED Panel and FanXpert Controls, 90RC0040-M0UAY0

Pros: Super clear OLED High Quality Fans - just because they're not Noctua doesn't mean they're not great! Cools about

Cons: The RGB Ring is actually quite dim, I expected to be able to control it's brightness - hopefully a future software update? The LiveDash software only lets you run a maximum of FIVE options to display, I thought I could have all of them shown.

Overall Review: I've been running various coolers for years, and my last H80i V2 was the best overall setup I've run. I decided to spruce up my new build with something NEW and this ROG Ryuo looked like an incredible choice! Took 10 days to get here to Canada from Newegg for whatever reason, but the wait was worth it. Sure the CPU temp is off by a few degrees, but that's a known and common issue with the Asus software due to it NOT using the core temps and instead using a different sensor, so it's not that it reads the temps wrong, it's that it reads the wrong temps to begin with. Strange that they've never changed that.
