Pros: amazing aesthetics
customizable RGB lighting
very quiet
insane performance
great cooler design
fits in smaller cases

Cons: card is somewhat heavy (may cause some sag)

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a gigabyte gtx 970 to this thing and let me tell you it was worth every penny, no longer am i limited to 3.5GB of vram, now i can let my games run at their full potential with an insane 8GB of vram, no longer do i have to worry about running over the Vram cap, i can finally just max my games out worry free. this card is much shorter then the gigabyte cards so it is also an excellent choice for those with shorter cases. I have the nzxt phantom 410 and the GPU sits in this case perfectly. although the height was kinda making it hard to put the side panel on, but that was easily fixed by folding down the 6-pin PSU connector on the top of the GPU. the backplate on this GPU really helps it not to sag and warp the PCB in the long run. although i would suggest a GPU support mount because this card is on the heavy side. Overall i would absolutely recommend this GPU to anyone. from what i read this is the top and best model of the GTX 1070 that you can buy, no other brand has the same cooling or overclocking performance.

Seagate Pipeline HD ST3320311CS 320GB 5900 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Good for only small workloads

Cons: *Its slower than advertised with a max read of 39 mb/s and write of 35 mb/s
*failed on a couple of sector tests just 3 months later

Other Thoughts: This drive is slower than advertised, i would only recommend this for people who use this for very small workloads and not as your main drive. windows takes 2 minutes and 36 seconds to boot on this drive when fully defragmented.

MSI Z97S SLI Plus LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks amazing
Has large heatsinks over every power phase mosfet for overclocking
support haswell out of the box
Supports sli and crossfire
Easy to use bios
better than the MSI Z97 U3+

Cons: Odd front panel pin placement on board (read other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I love this board but what caught me by surprise was the strange placement of the front panel connection pins, they were on the bottom left of the motherboard causing me to have to stretch the front panel wiring over top the motherboard causing my windowed case pc to look ugly. Also something else thats is odd is that this motherboard is better than the more expensive MSI Z97 U3+ which doesnt even support sli and has less features.
