Great card.

XFX Double D FX-787A-CDBC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Black Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
XFX Double D FX-787A-CDBC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Black Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: For starters this card is eye catching great is you have case with a clear side. Personally I like the xfx card designs as they are bold while being simple. The warranty offered with the card and the ability to transfer is you sell or give it away is a great bonus. Sold my last card with same warranty easily and near original value due to warranty offered with it. Games run amazing with this card, previously owned a xfx 5970 and this is an improvement (minor but noticeable). Much quiter than previous card and cooler temps aswell, while maintaining high capabilities. Lower power consumption than other high end cards I've owned in the past. Greatly improved multimonitor support over previous generation card. More connection types and the added single link DVI make it easier to utilize multiple monitors if not all have displayport.

Cons: Only con is that no adapters were included with the card. XFX includes a catalogue with adapters available for purchase at additional cost.

Overall Review: Primarily play BF3 on this card, aswell as skyrim, never had any issues with framerates dropping greatly, even in situations with large amount of data on the screen. 64 player matches on cramped high intensity maps run smooth and never stutter or slow noticeably on ultra settings. This card is a great buy, I am more than satisfied with the purchase. As stated this card is quiet the loudest thing in my room with my system under full load are the A/C vents and ceiling fan in the room. Haven't overclocked this card yet but if its anything like other xfx black edition cards this one will overclock with no issues at all.

Fast

Pros: First off this drive is fast. It's silent and uses much less power in my system. My boot times have virtually disappeared.

Cons: None really, cost maybe buy not expensive compared to other ssd's

Overall Review: Had issue with initial installation but works like a charm. Fast now but will be faster once on my sata 3 connection. Windows 7 ultimate with all background apps boots up in about 15 seconds.

Great Controller and Temp Sensor

Fan Controller
Fan Controller

Pros: Does what its designed for and controls the fans in my case well, giving full range of RPM control. Temperature sensors work great and have plenty of reach for my full tower case. Color scheme was a great touch as it matches my computer build. All the control knobs feel very sturdy and overall the unit seem built to last. Gives you a warning if connected fans are not coming up to speed.

Cons: Only two readings at a time (though not looking at the front of my case all the time) The warning beep is rather loud (can be turned off) Limited instructions

Overall Review: Great buy for the many fans I have in my case, I prefer personal control of my cooling. The temperature sensors do look a little on the fragile side, they are small but not much different than some other sensors I've seen. I didn't have any issue with non working sensors but extras are included. I'm very pleased with the controller and would recommend it to anyone with a lot of fans and in need of some temperature monitoring.
