Pros: Card works great for months( so busy not used pc for 3months) ran cool built in cooler great..
Cons: Twice in last 3weeks get no video first time I reset bios figuring it was a setting video came back.. this time I am not so lucky so once I get off work today I going to see if can trouble shoot it. It weird done updates last week and played a little Vega conflict. And now can’t even get to motherboard logo. For the price of this card should last more than ( guessing 200 hours of usage..)
Overall Review: If this card has died I will return to amd cards I never had the issues with them even running 2 different gpus( like a r7 265and a r9 380 )
Pros: Water lock built in
It 2080 l
Cons: Price little high for my normal builds
Overall Review: I switched to this card after my dual 580 cards where too loud for my wife and it almost impossible to find water blocks for them.. so I order this card and I loving it.. only draw back is price and I think I have to order a bridge for it if I got a pair of them not that it do much more FPS for me..
Pros: This case is huge I love it, once I finished building in it I wish it had wheels it got heavy enough it hard to move..
Does not come with a controller block for those that build large cooling loops ( dual 480 rads) so had to order one afterwards.
Some mounting pumps/res don’t alone with premise holes.. also no wheels and if you call for touch up paint they only want to rma.. my box was already soaking wet from rain so just repaired it myself and now need to figure out what shade of white I need to touch up the corner of case..cause damage was minor and I been doing this too long .
Overall Review: Nice sturdy case for anyone that likes nodding and water cooling for show piece.. a sample of a touch up or even a card so you can get the right paint for touch ups and and possible a vent in the glass up high to help video card heat exit faster ( on Air models cards) would be great..
Pros: Simple design straight forward setup. I slapped a ryzen 9 3950x cpu in and mounted the water block with no issues and dropped it right into the case same screw alignment as old board I was replacing from my fox build..
Cons: Bios is a little confusing when you switch from a older cpu into the newer am4 design but not a con just lack of knowledge..
Overall Review: Great system and works with the off brand memory I purchased with out a problem.. I even flashed the Bios in the bios to most recent version..
Pros: Nice simple amd4 block to run my ryzen 9 3950 cpu cooled on a older loop
Cons: Was only block online at time that had am4 chip compatibly
Overall Review: Works great does job of keeping my cpu cool when it under a load ( 80-90%) most time lol
Pros: I recently upgraded and my windows 7 ( upgraded to ten pro) stopped working this was a dvd build that they converted to a oem build so I could not use it anymore with new upgraded/build I just did..
Cons: I thought keys were for life of product not until having issues.. I shall not be doing many changes to this system unless it a cpu upgrade/video card ..
Overall Review: Windows 10 is a great software and needed but sadly it seem the support is not like in old days as I do pc rebuilds for people( hard drive failures and such replacement now unless your account tied to the code any oem is void ones once you upgrade so what. Yourselves it all for making you pay them more, next I bet it be a 365 key code for windows like with office, that when I switch over and learn a Mac or Linux.
Pros: No xbox Collin my house or account that active
Cons: Wasted freebie
Overall Review: Wasted freebie
Pros: Cheap simple to install not really using it yet.
Cons: No heat sink or such. Just a basic board with chips installed
Overall Review: Once I am able to transfer my files over from a different hard drive and I can run on it I shall update
Pros: I got a second card to add to my other 580 8 gig card to see if when crossfired( linked what ever they call it ) it would help my game related power needs better.
Cons: Another of these horrible zero rpm fans unless you manually ramp it up to run. I prefer to move air and keep as cool as possible not build up heat then work to remove it.
Overall Review: Smooth install worked flawlessly with my other card once I enabled the cross link just a wait and see if makes my games smoother than a single card
Pros: Not rgb and was cheap for the 32gig sticks I got... I though I had ordered 16 gig sticks lol but I take extra ram for the price I got cause never enough ram in my book
Cons: Non so far
Overall Review: Will update after a couple weeks
Pros: Purchased this to replace my fx8320 cpu ( 4core 8thread ) setup.
Cons: Didn’t get the new ryzen logo sticker to replace my fx one..
Overall Review: So had it up and running for like 4 hours and man on stock setting i Maxed it out at 79%usage and running at 4.0ghz I not even tried to over lock yet lol watch out I going to to hopefully load my BattleTech game fast and smooth
Pros: I purchased 2 of the 5 pack of fans.. I knew of needing 8 fans to replace my current fans that been running almost none stop last 3 years..
Cons: Only draw back ( and my fault for note checking first) these are 4 pin plugs my case I reusing was a 3 pin design so can’t use the. Case controls to run either high or low. Not removing a egg for this as it my fault
Overall Review: It so hard to find non rgb fans these days I don’t want lights I want air movement lol working great in replacing my current fans and move a nice amount of site at full power..
Pros: I purchased the ball valve to make refillingvandcdrainingvmy pc so much easier when I did my recent upgrade..
Cons: Heavier than you think but still nice .
Overall Review: Prefect for what I need and will update review in few weeks once I finish system tweaking and bleeding air out of loop
Pros: replaced a hacked windows 7 install ( non genuine ) with a oem install.
Cons: Seems to take a while to start up even in a system that 6 cores 16 gig ram and well set up
Pros: replaced a 250 gb laptop drive with this and I can really see a difference in the system
Pros: cheap reliable ram ddr3
Cons: high latency rate but since it a upgrade for a non gamer he will be happy
Pros: nice and quick swap out for a upgrade I am doing for a friend it was the highest I can get his unit to take without a new board too
Cons: heat sink and fan Heavy but I hope they worth their weight for him as pc runs in a warmer room than most computers ( currently does not have as in building )
Pros: I replaced my ( bought used r7 260x with this card ) It went right in with no issues. of course as soon as i installed it and had it all set to run and play a game a bad storm came though and had to shut pc off. will test it more later.
Cons: so far it heavy the back plate is nice if your into those things but hey i can live with it does seem to help support the nice heatsink and fans.
Overall Review: will update more later once i can play with it some .
Pros: system all works great and arrived as a single package, I got the kit to rebuild my boss's main computer at work ( were he does orders, payroll, and such from after the old one died after 10 years of 24-7 being on. )
Pros: huge radiator ( 2 inchs thick) you will want to research the models to make sure you get the right rad.
Cons: make sure you got the room to mount this huge rad I betting it almost 3 inches tall the fans.
Overall Review: this kit is great, just make sure you have all the parts, and do self a favor get some distilled water too cause a liter was not enough ( maybe cause I used longer hoses. also think ahead order a extra fitting and your ball valve so you can drain the unit later or if you mount it like I did can fill or drain the unit easier
Pros: just needed a extra g1/4 piece so i could mount my drain plug/fill plug for the computer.
Cons: the price seems a little high 8 bucks plus another 4 to ship.,
Pros: This case will work out great for what I wanted to do with water cooling once I mode a couple spots. I ordered a radiator that thicker than it can fit without removing a little material from the front but that will still look the same lol.
Cons: the listing says comes with 7 fans I only got six in the case(only reason I knocked an egg off someone was not doing QT very well).
Overall Review: the case has a card reader sized slot but there is no knock out for it to actually be accessed if installed. and i know the 3 drive bays are going to be filled 2 for the fluid res and then me dvd drive.,
Pros: I had my water cooler in for little over 3 years now. In that time I have changed mother boards 2 and cases like 4 times . I not had a problem with mine at all unlike others. <br>I do wish the system could be torn down and flushed and such, I like to had the option of building a a complete water cooling system if I possible. but this unit has lasted a log time. I do remove the fan and use compressed air to remove the dust build up that happens.( about every 3-5 months) I also have worn out a psu and a couple other fans during it life time lol. I Think my next unit will be one that I can sit on outside of case or replace parts as I need.<br>I like ot flush my system fluids ( like I do my truck ) every so often to remove any crude that formed in the unit.
Cons: Very stiff and hard to position in a case at time. rad a little too large for most stock cases.
Overall Review: I wish there was a flush line or even a way to check the fluid levels cause after 5 years i bet that it needs a good flushing out.
Pros: I used the dvd drive only ot load windows 7 pro but man it did it like it was none business I think I actually loaded the system in under 45 minutes from powering on to starting to get my updates( then going to windows 10)
Cons: it a little loud when spins up but that can be too cause my case is a pain to get other side to put screws in ( next maintenance round it get done)
Pros: jumped from a 750 watt to this monster 1kw unit ( mainly caused I pulled mine to fix a friends and just upgraded mine afterwards so he could keep on running over weekend. now i can run any gpu I will want later lol
Cons: none so far
