Pros: Well boxed, well packed. No issues at all with install in Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower. After install, Win 7 Experience went from 5.6 on video portion (MSI N560GTX) to 7.9. Overall is now 7.9 as well.

Cons: None as of the time of this review.

Other Thoughts: Caveats you need to be aware of when installing, depending on your previous setup: make sure if you are using the included power adapters, you have TWO separate PCI-E cables available, one single adapter requires both 6 pin connectors (12 in total) on a PCI-E for a single 8 pin connector. In other words, you will need a basic SLI PCI-E setup to power a single 1070. Second caveat: be aware of how tight the adapter fit is, I needed to wiggle the 8 pin input into the socket and press quite firmly to get it to seat properly. You may wish to install these adapters BEFORE the card is seated in the motherboard.

COUGAR CF-V14HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Easy install; good, useful and complete accessories package. Included mounting options excellent. Nice and quiet. Installed in Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower. Installed front with included rubber mounts, installed back with screws due to motherboard hardware placement.

Cons: None as yet.

Other Thoughts: Replaced case top exhaust fan included with Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower which got very noisy and died after a year or so.

When installing with screws, the mounting holes in the fan are not pre-threaded. The supplied screws are of the self tapping variety; before installing in the case, simply place the fan on a hard surface, screw in the screws fully (taking care that the screw is not crosswise when starting) , back the screws out and THEN install the fan in the case.
