AOC FC-2000 PCI Slot Case Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Used this to cool off a reference r9 290 card 08/08/2016

This review is from: AOC FC-2000 PCI Slot Case Cooler

Pros: I bought this PCI slot case cooler for two reason: first was to try and cool my r9 290 off and second was to keep hot air from getting to my water cooled cpu radiator.

It actually decreased the temperature of my r9 290 greatly which surprised me. Temperatures underload went from 86°C to 74°C max and 55°C to 47° Idle. This is really huge jump for a card as hot as the reference r9 290.

Cons: It is smaller than I expected but it also worked better than I expected. I was hoping for it to be large enough to get above the center of the GPU but It couldn't reach. The r9 290 is a really long card.

Other Thoughts: For anyone wondering I flipped the bracket to absorb the hot air right above the GPU.

Sapphire Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5 DUAL DVI-D/HDMI/DP PCI-Express Graphics Card (Certified Refurbished)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - runs games extremely well, pretty good if you are to impatient to wait for a RX 480

Cons: it is extremely hot, under max load it goes up to about 86°C, while light games will run at 65°C.

Other Thoughts: WARNING: The default fan speed is at 20%, you need to manually change it in AMD crimson or by some 3rd party software like MSI afterburner.

HP Laptop Intel Celeron N2940 (1.83 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 5500 15.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice looking laptop and does what it needs too

Cons: It does not come with the Intel HD 5500 like it is advertised, it comes with a regular Intel HD. This can make a difference when it comes to playing minimum requirements, for example the Intel HD 5500 can play guilds wars 2 at 50-60 fps on low to medium, with a regular Intel HD you can only play at around 20 fps on the lowest settings. -3 eggs because I was lied to.

Other Thoughts: even though I was baited into buying this laptop, I can live without being able to play games since I have a perfectly fine desktop to be able to do that, so if you are looking for a laptop for that netflix and chill life, this is pretty nice laptop for that kind of job.
