MSI R9 290X LIGHTNING 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good performance while it worked

Cons: Card only lasted 5 weeks. I'm doing the RMA right now.

Other Thoughts: I'll update this review after the RMA process.

HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 MicroServer Server System Intel Pentium G2020T 2.5GHz 2C/2T 2GB DDR3 No Hard Drive 712318-001
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sleek design, compact and really quiet even when using AHCI (Thanks to the latest ROM). Comes with Intelligent Provisioning for easy configuration, deployment and maintenance and iLO4 Management Processor that can be accessed from a dedicated NIC port or by sharing the server's NIC#1.

Cons: The Embedded B120i controller is a half baked Smart Array controller.

Other Thoughts: You don't need to buy HP Smart Memory or HP Hard Drives. Mine is running fine with 16Gb Kingston's ECC (p/n KTH-PL316E/8G) and 4 Western Digital Red NAS hard drives.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition DirectX 11 100351VXSR 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast when it is not crashing my system.

Cons: My problems started around 2 months ago while playing F1 2012 at stock speed (1050 GPU/1500 Memory),
Now, I cannot play Battlefield 4 for more than 1 hour without getting the infamous Grey/Black screen crash and the sound looping.
I've tried everything. Several AMD drivers versions and I even bought a 1200W Gold Power Supply to rule out my old 850W Bronze power supply.
The only thing that seems to help is to reduce the video card memory frequency from 1500 to 1450. So, it appears the memory on this video card has developed problems.

Other Thoughts: I didn't get the extended warranty so, I'm going to have to RMA this card directly to Sapphire. Problem is that I don't have a replacement card for the weeks it is going to take the RMA to get processed.
