Cooler Master V8 GTS - High Performance CPU Cooler with Horizontal Vapor Chamber and 8 Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Everything...this is the closest you will get to fact works better than alot of low level coolers....the look is unbeaten in the new build looks like a nuclear reactor!!!! epic!!!! Coolmaster you guys rock!!! Pair this beast of a cooler with a coolmaster CM Trooper full size tower and a couple of lighted fans and your looking like the matrix!

Cons: none....

Other Thoughts: make sure you got a full tower to fit this thing....its bigger than your fat

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Im not sure yet....

Cons: Is not performing to my needs...

Other Thoughts: I had a geforce gtx 285 sc 2 gb and ran average of 60 fps in "World of tanks" at mid settings at 1920x1080 res. I purchase gtx 770 and by 29 inch ultra wide screen and keep same settings but with 2560x1080 res instead and im getting barley 60 fps....i decide that ill need stronger card to keep me steady above 60 fps to keep vertical sync on....which is best for lag in such.....So i do some research....2 days worth...hours of comparing specs and i buy this Asus 4gb 512 bit.... supposedly a beast on paper....should keep me at least at 80 90 fps at mid settings for world of tanks at 2560x1080 dosent come close! what is wrong with this thing?!!!! im getting 30 to 40 fps!!!!!! im ready to die!!!!!

EVGA GeForce GTX 700 SuperClocked 02G-P4-2774-RX GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 16x SLI Support Video Card Manufactured Recertified Factory Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good on power....looks ok....

Cons: This thing barely beats a evga geforce gtx 285 superclocked 2gb....and i mean barely.....over 1500 cuda cores for nothing....over 1000 mhz core clock for nothing.... if your comming from a 128 bit graphics card this is nice upgrade for you but dont let the numbers on this card fool returning this thing and going to the AMD R9 really upset how weak this card is....after 5 good years of my 285 kicking but this thing blows chunks.

Other Thoughts: Im a pro gamer and play World of tanks....i was getting between 75 and 85 FPS at mid settings on my 285 2 gb....this thing gets between 80 to 90 at the same settings. Nothing is bottle me. if i overclocked my 285 slightly it would match this thing...thats terribad man. I upgraded because im changing from 23 inch monitor to 29 inch ultra wide screen at 2560x1080 resolution with 21:9 aspect i caint even get 60 fps at mid settings....big let down... AMD here i come.
