Best bang for your buck card out there
Pros: -Great card for the price -Handles almost everygame max settings with 40fps+ -EASILY OC to 900/1200 with MSI afterburner -I'm playing AvP maxed at 56C with 80% fan speed -Fits with about 4 inches to spare in my antec 1200, i mean this thing is huge but my case is a monster so it wasn't a problem, could be for some. i would estimate this thing is a good 11 inches with cables. -2dvi, hdmi -LIFETIME WARRANTY. -Free t-shirt -Eyefinity if you want it
Cons: -Sags slightly, about a good half inch, wish it was a little more sturdy -Fan is a bit loud but i mean it keeps the thing super cool so u cant' really complain
Overall Review: -Size could be an issue for some people with mid towers, this is not a con. I would recommend a full tower. -I would highly recommend this card to anyone who wants to play the most recent games at 1080 without breaking the bank. I know $200 isn't cheap but its not terribly expensive either especially since you can do so much with it. -Paired with my 1055T, msi 890fx-gd70 mb, and 4gb of ddr3 @1600, this thing does WORK. I will buy another about a yr from now to crossfire.
Pros: VERY FUN ADDICTIVE 20 MIN FLIGHT TIME
Cons: BROKE AFTER 2 WEEKS, I GAVE IT 2 EGGS 1 FOR THE FUN I DID HAVE AND 1 FOR NEWEGG BC THEY ROCK AND I FEEL BAD FOR LEAVING A BAD REVIEW ON THEIR SITE. NEWEGG WAS HELPFUL, AND DIRECTED ME TO RAIDENTECH WHERE I RECEIVED ATROCIOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE. I FINALLY RECEIVED A REFEND. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS VENDOR.
Overall Review: I WISH A NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE DIDN'T INVOLVE NEWEGG LIKE THIS. THEY HAVE ALWAYS TREATED ME AS WELL, JUST AS MY CHECKBOOK TREATS THEM WELL. WORD OF ADVISE DON'T BUY FROM A VENDOR.
Pros: I thought the bios was really well designed. I could easily navigate between it, and the manual instructions. I made a few changes before OS install, such as raid and enabling a few of the features. Has nice LED error code if you need it. Plenty of space, ports are in perfect spots for a nice cable management.
Cons: I have not come across anything I can't do with this board yet. Meets my needs. It would be nice to have an msata slot option?
Overall Review: Bit pricey, but if you're going for a reliable board with all the bells and whistles, this is a perfect solution for under $200.
Best Case I've Ever Owned
Pros: Wow, where to start... -Cable Management. Look at pics to see what I'm talking about. -Wide. Spacious. -Removable drive cages -Airflow options galore. See video on Newegg's site. -Quality of build. Everything is either metal, or quality plastic. The drive cages come with screws and rubber grommets to reduce noise and drive vibration. I was very impressed with this. -SSD's mounted on back. Tool-less. -Power button feels really nice, front panel cords are nice and long. -Quick release for easy air can dusting. -Door can be opened from either direction. -Air filters. I've owned an antec 1200, and these filters beat the quality of those! They are heavier, and made of better material.
Cons: I really can't think of any after a week of installing a new server build. It has literally everything I've ever wanted in a case.
Overall Review: I'm going to knit-pick in the other thoughts section, mainly for the manufacturer for ideas for R6... -drive cage trays could be slightly better quality/click into their slots better. -Lockable power button would be nice.(keep little kids away) -Option for top or bottom mount PSU? (it's just bottom currently) But really thought, this case is unbelievable for only $100. I won't ever be getting rid of this case, unless they come out with something even more incredible.
ATROCIOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE. HAD TO REPEAT MY NAME(KEITH) 6..COUNT IT..6 TIMES BEFORE SHE COULD REMEMBER IT OVER THE COURSE OF THE CALL. PLACED ON HOLD MORE TIMES THAN I CARE TO REMEMBER. FINALLY HER SUPERVISOR WHO WAS HELPING HER THE WHOLE TIME DECIDED TO GIVE ME A REFUND. IT BLOWS MY MIND HOW A COMPANY LIKE THIS STAYS ALIVE TODAY. OWNERS AND WORKERS OF THE COMPANY HAVE NAMES LIKE CHANG AND IVAN WU IF THAT TELLS YOU ANYTHING HINT HINT. BEWARE SELLER BUY AT OWN RISK.
