MSI Radeon HD 6990 DirectX 11 R6990-4PD4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Powerful card. It's a 6990, don't have to say much else.

Sapphire was sold out, took a chance with MSI, couldn't be happier.

Cons: DRIVER SUPPORT. AMD is slow to release driver updates. Crossfire issues in some games yet.

Other Thoughts: Heat and noise have not been a problem. Immediately put an EK waterblock on in it. O/C'd to 1015/1450 on stock voltage, hits 45 degrees on full load.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3EG HD203WI 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: I'm using two of these drives in Raid1 in a NAS server. No problems yet. Seem to run relatively cool.

Cons: Speed, but they're 5400 rpm, so speed isn't expected.

Patriot Viper II 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Desktop Memory w/Futuremark 3DMark Vantage Bundle Model PV224G8500ELKB

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Been using 8 gigs of these for 5 months, no real problems. Rebate came without issues.

Cons: Couldn't get them to run at 1066 while overclocking, see below.

Other Thoughts: I had to under-clock and over-volt (900mHz, 2.2v) for stability while over-clocking my system. I'm not sure if this was a limitation of the Ram or motherboard, but I was able to squeeze another 150mHz out of my quad core using this ram over my DDR2 800.
However they did work at advertised speed and voltage when not over-clocking. So if you're just looking for solid, fast DDR2 1066, I highly recommend these.
