Pros: - It is very quiet, generally
- it keeps low temperatures
- it has nice clean aesthetics
- huge heatsink assembly
- its overclocked already without using Overdrive
- 3GB RAM
- Lots of output options (2 DVI, 1 HDMI, 2 DP)
Cons: - Sticks about an inch and a half off the end of an ASUS Sabertooth M-board. Can be a tight fit.
- Fan bearings/shafts/mounts/sleeves could be a little better. They get noisy (in a clicky way, not an airflow sound way) when they spool up to full.
- Draws a lot of watts when going balls to the wall.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that this 280x is an iteration of the 7970. However it is overclocked and the RAM runs faster too. It runs very nicely. Windows calls it a 7000/R200 series, but the correct 280x will show up if you use current version of GPU-Z. I'm pretty happy with the card, overall, and it looks and sounds great compared to my old 6850, and video lockups are no longer an issue.

This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: -Easy to install hardware
-Simple to clean
-Strong and stiff yet fairly lightweight
-Attractive and clean finish
Cons: -Right hand side placement of front ports for audio and USB is a little bit odd and akward (as I am used to putting the tower on the right side of desks).
-Would be happier with a included quieter 120mm rear fan
-Not as quiet as a 100$ Corsair.
Other Thoughts: I have built quite a few machines for family and friends over the last 15 years, and this case really impressed me with its value and sturdiness. This particular build was a 3.4 GHz i3, 8MB RAM, ASUS board, and 430W Antec Earthwatts PSU. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or purchase myself this case for future buildsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: 3 ghz and two cores, plenty of cache, runs cool. CHEAP.
Cons: Intel HSF kinda dinky, but does the job.
Other Thoughts: Paired this with 8 GB and a 7770 for a great gaming computer. Don't let someone try to convince you ya need a 300$ processor to play games unless you have a 30" monitor. This thing works great at 720 and 1080.READ FULL REVIEW
