SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100351VXSR
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100351VXSR

Pros: I have two of them in Crossfire with three 22" ASUS monitors also from newegg, they just scream!! these are the games i tested so far, BF3: i get 90FPS-120FPS normally it is stable at 100FPS (3 monitors) Darksiders 2: no less than 100FPS average at 120-145FPS crysis 2: 70FPS on extreme with DX11 and high Texture but after the update or patch the game dips in FPS and i believe its the game or patch, with out the patch its always high FPS overall im pleased going from two XFX 6870's , love xfx but looks like we found our selves a new mate.

Cons: Man i almost gave up at first, couldn't seem to get the crossfire to work, install,uninstall, update,download remove,insert, you must have patience otherwise you will give up, solution that worked wiped out my OS with one card only, windows updates, and all the goodies,then installed the second GPU crossfire and everything went smooth after that, ohh i did increase the power setting in ccc to %20 which gave them more power to run, they look like they are power hungry!

Overall Review: WIN7 Ultimate 64bit ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AMD FX-8150 8-Core CPU 3.6Ghz 16GB corsair vengeance RAM 120GB SSD 1 TB Seagate HD 7200RPM Cooler master V8 CPU fan Cooler master Storm Series Trooper everything is running of of air, i care less for the noise once your gamming i hear nothing but the game. nothing is clocked it is fast enough the way it is maybe in the near future. Purchased one on newegg, and the second got luck for $440 on another website by some user all new!

Most Critical Review

Oh Asus

ASUS Z77-A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Z77-A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The Board works as it should asi use it just for a general build running an i5 ivy.

Cons: The bad part was the Rebate , for the first time Asus Claimed they never received my Bar-code and that is were i said enough of asus. im over positive i send everything in as i been doing this for years and i reviewed my CCTV cameras in the shop to double check. maybe the Rebate section dropped it or something or disappeared in the mail but ASUS is messing up on these Rebates lately . i dont need the money i always end up giving it away to a friend or something but it just ticks you off , i cannot send another bar-code as i already send the main one in, and of course we are provided with one bar-code!

Pretty Fast!

HP Compaq 8300 Elite 23" Full HD 1920x1080 All-In-One Desktop PC, Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 128GB SSD, Win-7 Pro

Pros: Fast! smooth installation, physically OK but works perfect for work!

Cons: out of 6 ordered 2 came with issues, one had a cracked housing perhaps from shipping but no sign of damage on the box. the second one had a loose SSD/HD connector ( NO disk error ), i had to remove the back panel and reinsert the ssd connector cable, i also notice there was no screws holding the back panel which seemed they forgot or assumed they were done. just your typical "its not my job" kind of guy ( whoever was handling it last )

Overall Review: Pretty good stuff when it works! i mean best for business ( cell phone stores) but they need a little touch up on making sure their products are shipped working 100% and reimburse costumers who had to work extra just to make sure their product is working right, and who will pay me for that cracked housing?? or my work for fixing their mistake on the ssd connection? anyways ill reconsider purchasing again from them

Fast!

SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW
SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW

Pros: Yes its fast! performance as it should, installed WIN10 and booted from my Motherboard with no issue ever! Samsung make best software for them also, very easy to use.

Cons: Heat! mines would heat a good bit when in benchmark , i had to order a nice heat-sink from Alpha cool to compensate and it worked. temps rose 75c when stressing it or benchmark but now with the heat-sink temps under 50c when benchmarking

Overall Review: still would buy again, maybe the pro next time run them in raid, but defiantly always get some nice cooling for them! unless your just using the drives normally.

Trident Z hands down

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GTZR
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GTZR

Pros: Besides the fact i know only buy G-skill for my ram in my enthusiast builds these just look wonderful matched with my Formula IX, i have the XMP 3200mhz ( 32gb total ram ) file enabled of course and my i7700k clocked at 5.0GHz no issues what so ever. my previous ram was also the trident 16GB still running in my 2016 build with no issue! solid stuff!

Cons: Price... but price is always a factor on almost everything high end today. no regrets ;-)

Overall Review: I think G-skill is top notch stuff, i use my aura sync software to control them , at the current moment the software is kind of buggy, work but buggy. but thats asus part. the original software it comes with is identical to Asus software, and that work fine.

Aweasome Fans!

Fractal Design Venturi HP Series Black Fluid Dynamic Bearing High Pressure PWM 120mm Radiator/Heatsink Optimized Fan
Fractal Design Venturi HP Series Black Fluid Dynamic Bearing High Pressure PWM 120mm Radiator/Heatsink Optimized Fan

Pros: I believe they are the best performing and quality fans i had to this date! Im using 4 in push and pull config using a 480 thick alpha-cool rad, and a P5 case. and they are just amazing in performance and effectiveness.

Cons: since i have an open case and have 8 fans total of these bad boys, yes they can get a bit loud on full speed. but the sounds of explosion and battle when gaming you kind of forget about the fan noise. plus you can always adjust your fan curve to control noise. as for me i put them on blast when gaming .

Overall Review: Will be nice if they had some RGB or Something , at least for my setup , i couldn't do thermaltake fans because i hate controllers but these PMW fans are the best for their purpose,
