Pros: It looks great. on the inside, there's good cable management, and the water cooler mounts on the back are great. it comes with 2 front usb 3.0 ports and audio. it has an awesome look, especially for the price. there's plenty of room, as it fits my 550 easily with ~ 4 inches to spare. the toolless front bay installation is great. Again, it looks incredible and the fans are quite quiet.
Cons: The left side panel will get cramped a bit. if you're getting this case, you NEED a modular power supply. it only took a minute for me to get the panel on.
Overall Review: if you're trying the connect the front 5 cables to your mobo, it comes with nifty connectors that take you from all the pins to 2 simple ones that are all labeled. would have been nice if i had seen those first. also, you need to check that your mobo has 3.0 connectors. mine doesn't, so those aren't working for me. bottom line-buy it!
meh, terrible speed
Pros: it works, and it's plug and play. also win 7x64 compatible
Cons: my DELL D-620 has better wifi. same location, same internet. and that's only suppossed to go up to 54mbps. this card hasn't broken 36 gbps, spends most of it's time at 1 gbps, and the best it's speed tested at is 4 gbps. don't install the driver, that killed my speed until i uninstalled it via programs and features. if it can't beat a dell... well...
Overall Review: DON'T USE THE DVD TO INSTALL THE DRIVER! IT WOULDN'T LOAD ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET WHEN I DID THAT!
Pros: keeps my cpu cool. idles at 43C with the fan at 50%, which is great considering it's a firstname.lastname@example.org ghz. . it's also quiet there. at load, STILL AT 50%, it' doesn't go above 65degrees. and that's after a few hours of prime. and that's just at 50% speed when it's VERY QUIET. also, the cost is ridiculous. literally 1/4 the price of comparable cpu coolers
Cons: i had to switch which side the fan was on because it interfered with my ram
Overall Review: get it. you won't regret it.
Pros: great card, easy oc to -1054 core and 2275 mem. 7.4 wei, avg 50 fps on sto 1080p max settings. great look, fits well in my case.
Cons: it's probably worth it to get the 560, not much of a price diff but good on the performance. non really though
Overall Review: might as well get the 560 if you can... prices should plummiting now that 79xx and 6xx are out...
Pros: Great, seamless install. didn't even have to enable XMP to put right back at 1600 mhz, despite mobo's defaulting to 1333 mhz. was able to lower timings to 8-8-8-15, bumping it to a 7.9 wei! performes great, and yes, i actually have used over 12 gigs without prime or ect.
Cons: not much, but couldn't even post at 1866 despite raising voltage to 1.65 - before i lowered timings. it ran at rated speeds anyway, so don't worry
Overall Review: don't delay... it's wonderful
