Fantastic performance!

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 HYBRID GAMING, 08G-P4-6178-KR, 8GB GDDR5, LED, All-In-One Watercooling, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)
EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 HYBRID GAMING, 08G-P4-6178-KR, 8GB GDDR5, LED, All-In-One Watercooling, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)

Pros: - Performance is incredible and easily beat out my old R9 290, hands down. - Memory and core clock have decent room for overclocking to push performance even higher though it's insane at default already. - I'm limited to 60hz on my monitor, but I've had no problem maxing out games at 4k across the board, without an issue.

Cons: - Some people say that the radiator can be noisy, but I think placing it with the hoses on the bottom of it's mounting position should mitigate almost all the sound issues, as recommended by the packaging itself. - Can get a bit loud when gaming for long periods of time and in stressful situations like maxing out certain games with default fan. Highly recommend replacing with something that meets whatever requirements you're looking for (performance, cooling or silence).

Overall Review: - Would definitely recommend this to other people without a problem. - The EVGA Precision XOC software is quite nice and handy.

Amazingly beautiful

NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case
NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Easily, the extreme spaciousness of the this case is amazing. More then enough room for everything that you could possibly want to throw in there. The Fan control switches on top are fantastic and add a nice cosmetic touch. The fans are amazingly silent, even on max. I love them for this and simply opt to keep them at max all the time. Love the blue leds, definitely considering adding more to enhance it's already impressive look.

Cons: I gathered from the details that a top 200mm fan with leds was included. It wasn't in the one I got. Just got a regular non-led one which disappoints me a little. Nothing to lose an egg over though. Also, cable management is great but requires some careful planning. I spent about an hour just make sure I hid all the cables as much as I could and made great use of every management hole on the case.

Overall Review: This case was bought for a friend who wanted me to build him a gaming desktop. This case really has that wow factor and it's impressive even to non-techy people. Again, extremely spacious and great managemnet. With a few more fans/led's, it'll look like a true beauty.

Awesome

RAIDMAX Helios ATX-819WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
RAIDMAX Helios ATX-819WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great case, in terms of aesthetics and functionality. I purchased one recently for a build I did for a friend. Worked out great, excellent cooling and space inside for everything.

Cons: Only downside I can see for this case is the lack of real cable-management. I mean there are cut-outs where the motherboard is located for routing and hiding uneeded cables but it's not what you'd expect of a such a nice case.

Overall Review: I love the fans on this case, extremely silent and love the blue leds on the 2 front ones. I bought a 700w power supply with another blue led and it looks great inside.

Not bad.

Pros: Plugged into system and it boots right up. Windows instantly recognizes it so no need to mess around with the driver CD. I've bought 1 for my own desktop and 1 for a friend's desktop that I built. Both have been great and the only thing I'm considering is switching out the antenna's for stronger ones mainly due to where my desktop is in relation to the router.

Cons: None whatsoever. Product has worked for me every time so far and with various versions of Windows 7.

Overall Review: This is a decent little adapter card. Can't say much for the wireless N since I don't personally have a N router but my friend does. Soon as I get some more time to test it out, I'll add in info accordingly.

Excellent card when used for what it's good at.

PowerColor Radeon HD 4650 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card AX4650 1GBK3-H

Pros: Without a doubt, a significant upgrade. I was stuck on my onbaord HD 4200 off my motherboard and this card has breathed new life into my desktop in general. Rather then offsetting everything on the processor and eating at my ram, this card's 1GB of DDR3 has blazed through every 1080p video I've thrown at it. Highly recommended.

Cons: This is not a gaming card, don't expect it to be. You can play a few games like the Fallout series (3 and New Vegas), as well as some select titles at fairly high settings and smoothly. But nowhere near adequate enough for a serious gamer.

Overall Review: Installs nice and easy. Just make sure to remove any components of whatever you were using before, especially if it's ATI-related. Using the ATI software I overclocked the memory speed to 600mhz, matching the core gpu clock. Runs very smooth with temp's only going as high as 73 on fairly high workloads. Your mileage may vary but my case has decent airflow for it.

Excellent seller, excellent item.

The seller was extremely nice and thoughtful. Sent me an email to check in and see how the item was faring so far in use. I must admit, it was quite refreshing to have someone take the time to check in after a purchase. Definitely makes much more likely to purchase more from said seller in the future as opposed to those that don't seem to care much at all. Highly recommended for future buyers.
