Pros: I love the 2080 super from EVGA so much, I purchased a 2nd one for a new build. The card stays cool and plays all my games at 4k 60hz without any tweaking at all. I bought it because of the great warranty, step-up program, and all around great customer service from EVGA
Overall Review: When buying an Nvidia card, EVGA is the ONLY brand you should consider.
audio out mini jack to retrieve hdmi audio
no bad pixels (for me)
Cons: Gaming color profile a bit too red ( I use custom instead)
no DP input
Overall Review: This little beauty is lightweight and has awesome color representation. I use it as a portable monitor to hook my PS4 Pro or Xbox One X to. The xbox one supports freesync which is a plus for me. I love this monitor so much I want to get two more to flank my main 27 inch 4k monitor with at home. I highly recommend it; i was greatly impressed!
Pros: These run great on 470x MSI gaming plus board and 1700x cpu. Prime stable 24 hours.
Cons: Cas latency 16
Overall Review: update: these run great at 3400 same timings. It passes memtest and windows memory diagnostic.
Pros: Nice and quiet and looks great!
Overall Review: I wanted a 14cm replacement fan for the rear of my CM Mastercase H500P to match my CM ML240R's look and this fan was a perfect match! It plugged right in to the ARGB controller that came with the ML240 liquid cooler. The lights light up in unison with the ones on the cooler and have the same look.
Cons: No cons at all.
Overall Review: Installed the RAM and so far I have not had any problems- no errors of any kind. I even fired up a game for about an hour and everything ran smoothly. I even noticed a nice 10fps bump in one of my favorite games because previously I was running one 8gb chip in single channel. The dual-channel made a nice little difference.
Pros: I got this card in hopes of upgrading to a 144hz 1440p monitor later on. So far it is overkill for my 75hz 1080p setup, but at least I'm able to max out every game I've played so far. I've got it paired with a 1700x at 3.9ghz and 16gb of 3400 Cas 16 RAM. I haven't noticed any bottleneck problems so far. My CPU usage stays pretty low while playing games - less than 25%. I do have some games like COD BO4 rendering at 200% to push the GPU load to about 98% just to test out the thermals on the card. So far so good.
Cons: The "super" label was stamped on to the metal backplate and there is no "super" on the part of the card that lights up in rgb; just Geforce rtx 2080. There is also a tiny "super" stamp tacked on to the back side of the card by the power plugs - no big deal. I also wish that the EVGA software would allow the rainbow effect to be sped up. Right now the color shift is sloooooow. I know this can be changed via software later on.
Also, there is an issue with Precision X1 not properly saving my desired temp setting. For example, stock is 84C @ 100% power. I change it to 72C @ 100% by breaking the "link chain" in the settings. I hit save and apply and it works, however after a reboot it changes back to a "connected link"
and my power setting changes to something in 70 percent power range - the temp remains at 72C. Yes of course I have all the"load when windows starts" and "auto load prev profile" boxes ticked, but yet this still happens. Luckily you can adjust the fan curve and that does save and load properly after a reboot.
Overall Review: Frankly I wish these cards were like the FE and only displayed Geforce RTX on the side, but this is a minor gripe. At the end of the day this card works like a champ and is backed by EVGAs awesome 3 year warranty. They let you extend it to 5 years for an extra $30 which is great. I may do that since this card was so expensive. I'll update my review if I encounter any problems, but so far everything is running great after about 8 hours of intense gaming.
Pros: I bought because we have these birds that gather around some main transmission power lines that feed our neighborhood. A few months a year, there gets to be so many of them flying in these huge groups that they actually short the lines together and cause momentary outages. This caused my home server to reboot during these times. This APC stopped all of that. It works great!
Cons: Heavy and bulky, but that was expected.
Pros: Install was a breeze. Formatted it using Windows' Disk Management and all 4 TB are available for me to fill with media for my Plex server. It is noticeably quicker than my WD 2TB green drive as expected. I have other HGST drives in my existing machine that are well over 3 years old and all are still running great.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: The one that works runs cool and is noticeably faster than my old unlocked 6950. I can barely hear the fan even when it is set to 75% and it seems to plays almost all modern games at 1080p without a problem. So far I've tried Bioshock Infinite, Arkham Origins, and Far Cry.
Cons: The 2nd card would crash when starting any 3d application. Regular desktop 2d work was fine, but as soon as you fire up a game-blank screen and computer would freeze.
Overall Review: Newegg accepted my RMA request, but I had to pay $12 to ship it back. This is only the 2nd product in a decade that I've had to return to Newegg, so not bad.
Pros: My 2nd card arrived and this one also fired right up without any problems. Both cards pump out 830khs on stock settings.
Cons: My system is REALLY loud now. Luckily I play games with Turtle Beach Headphones.
Overall Review: I was skeptical at first, but my Corsair TX850 psu is doing a good job of powering my system with 2 R9 290s. No HW errors in cgminer or while playing games such as Far Cry 3, Max Payne 3, and Bioschock Infinite on an eyefinity setup.
Pros: An 80plus psu that fits in my son's BitFenix Prodigy Case. Powering an A10 system with an ssd, mechanical drive, and an optical drive. I'm going to throw in a midrange card in the future and it has the 6/8pin ready to support it. Nice and quiet as well.
Cons: Not modular, but didn't expect it to be for the price.
Pros: I finally upgraded my Q6600 from 4-5 years ago and I am very impressed. I do a lot of encoding/re-encoding and this cpu has doubled and at times tripled my productivity. Overclocks beautifully with the right board. I have mine at 4.1 at 1.38v and it never goes over 55c. I'm using an old H50 with push/pull fan config.
Cons: No complaints for the price I paid.
Pros: Painless and easy setup. Everything booted up perfect on first try. I have all 4 ram slots occupied with gskill ddr1600 and I was able to overclock my 8120 to 4.1ghz in no time at all. I love the look of the board. Matches my blue RAM heat sink modules.
Cons: None that I can think of at this time. I've had zero problems since setup a few weeks ago.
Overall Review: Keep the caps next to the cpu well cooled, especially if you are using a corsair hydro-like cooler. I was not able to maintain a stable OC until I flipped my top case fan downto blow air towards it. I ended up making the side case fan an exhaust because of this and I've been prime stable since.
