Green Giant is nice.
Pros: Quiet, runs cool and works perfectly in my MX-1 enclosure.
Cons: None. This is not a performance drive. Its a GREEN drive so there is no point in me complaining about performance when I know what I bought and how its supposed to perform.
Overall Review: I wish people would stop knocking off eggs for price. This is here to rate the product not its price. We can see the price already! What I want to know when I read a review is how dependable it is and any issues someone ran into. Also stop rating a product you don't own! We have reviews of ppl saying they don't trust a drive this size? The drive is great for someone who needs A lot of storage in a single drive. If you don't like the price then don't buy it. If you don't buy it... don't rate it!
I expected better....
Pros: Looks good.. runs cool..
Cons: First card lasted about a day... Newegg would not RMA.. I had to go through EVGA and in order to get it quickly I had to pay for advanced shipping.. So another $40 to get it back quickly.... then found out this is only for a one time use... now the new card is working fine but it has the same turn on Fan noise Andre mentioned in his review... lasts a few seconds everytime the fans kick on. So if you are at that point where it does it over and over it becomes very annoying.... Now I have to pay for ANOTHER advanced RMA so I am at least not down during the swap. AT this point I will have paid for a FTW3 but won't have a FTW3... Just super unhappy.. I have been a huge EVGA fan for many many years..
Great Card.. Cool and Quiet..
Pros: Amazing build quality Beautiful RGB Silent at idle and very very quiet while gaming Runs very cool
Cons: Size could be an issue for some....
Overall Review: Hard for me to say a single bad thing about this card. MSI needs to work on Dragon Center as it seems a little buggy but so does every other RGB software I have used. Overall I can't think of a better card than this. Run's about 67C while stress testing and stays quiet the whole time. They card feels Extremely Solid. Running this with my Mega Ace X570 board, 3900X and 32gb 3600mhz C14 ram. Zero issues so far!
High Quality and stable!
Pros: 2700X with Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 X470. I loaded up 2 kits for 32gb and used the XMP profile to boot into Windows at 3200mhz no issues. Super happy. Heat spreaders are very clean looking. The kit feels very high quality
Cons: None that I can think of. It's Ram.. it either works or it doesn't. I have not tried to OC beyond 3200 but I may see if I can later this week.
Overall Review: No LED's! So sick of dealing with RGB software etc.. My mobo has plenty of lighting so it was nice to not have to worry about getting rgb
Well I wanted them to be great..
Pros: Feel very solid. Rubber isolation and high static pressure.
Cons: MOTOR NOISE! I am very big into silent cooling and a lot of reviewers have no idea how I fan is supposed to sound. I bought these fans based on reviews here and had someone mentioned the motor noise is pretty bad I would have never gotten them. I have been building computers for 16 years and have built hundreds including my own with a custom water loop. I know a good fan when I hear one. My Noctua Redux 140mm fans sound amazing.. I should have stayed with Noctua.
No issues for me!
Pros: Built very solid, AI Suite Fan control top notch. Board looks amazing in a Node 804 on water.
Cons: None... yet..
Overall Review: I am using Crucial Ballistix Elite 2666mhz XMP Profile with no problems. I am controlled all my case fans (multiple types) no problems. I am on the latest bios as of this time posting.. I think it was 0907. I am using an M.2 drive and a UEFI install.. no problems. Right now with the XMP profile applied the 6700K is running at 4.2ghz.. I Plan to OC later but always give the PC a good few days of play to ensure stability before I OC. Not sure why the negative reviews. If I do run into anything negative I will report back but as of now everything functions as it should.
