Excellent card

ASUS AMD Radeon RX 5700 Overclocked 8G GDDR6 Dual Fan EVO Edition HDMI DisplayPort Gaming Graphics Card (DUAL-RX5700-O8G-EVO)
ASUS AMD Radeon RX 5700 Overclocked 8G GDDR6 Dual Fan EVO Edition HDMI DisplayPort Gaming Graphics Card (DUAL-RX5700-O8G-EVO)

Pros: +Price to performance +Quiet +Easy to overclock

Cons: -AMD drivers

Overall Review: So far no complaints on this card. Compared to RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 in different computers this one beats RTX 2060 in almost all games and is close to or equal to RTX 2070 after OC. This is all based on behind feel and not strictly looking at frames. I did have to turn off AMD anti-lag & image sharpening as this caused micro stutters, but after turning both off I have not had any performance or driver issues. I would recommend this card if you want raw fps and don't need RTX features.

45C Top temperature drop on A10-7700K

Pros: Halved the temperature on AMD A10-7700K with stock fan in Silverstone ML03. With stock fan I normally hit temperatures of 80C+ occasionally going over 90C. With this fan my top temperature under stress is 46C. Both coolers used the same arctic silver thermal paste. This is in Silverstone ML03 HTPC case with two 80mm Noctua case fans. Completely stopped thermal throttling when watching x264 movies with AAC sound. Might have had bad stock cooler but still, this cooler exceeded my expectations and could not be happier. It also made my HTPC totally silent in normal noise conditions.

Cons: Does not fit if your RAM has any kind of raised head spreaders, like mine did. Luckily those are easy to remove and in HTPC use at least do not matter.

Overall Review: Make sure that you have RAM that does not have heat spreaders or has heat spreaders that do not raise up more than couple millimeters.

Great drives

HGST Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA640 (0F12455) 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive
HGST Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA640 (0F12455) 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Ordered 4 of these drives. 2 drives (2011 Manufacturing year) showed less than 5 hours of power on time. 2 other (2013 Manufacturing year) drives came in unopened bags, with 0 hours power on time. I know with refurbished items every order is different, but seeing that I got two brand new, never used drives I could not be happier.

Cons: Other than being refurbished, none.

Overall Review: Perfect drives for raid in older HP Proliant 165 G7 server (Raid controller only supports up to 2TB drives when in raid). If the drives I got are any indication of the quality, I could consider only buying refurb drives from Newegg from now on.
