Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB White Frost 3G 5

5 out of 5 eggs Good phone but beware the battery life! 04/02/2014

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB White Frost 3G 5" Super AMOLED I9500

Pros: It's fast and cheap for a S4. It's a bit faster than the GT-I9505 model. Screen is amazingly pretty to look at. It can oversaturate a lot of things but I like it. Camera is great for a phone and flash doubles as a light with a widget, useful. the pattern on the plastic is nice. The shape is nice and it has a very large screen for the overall size. It's fast, faster than most phone I've seen.

Cons: Here's the bad part. The GT-I9500 is a battery hog. I get 3-4 hours of sustained use and maybe 18 hours at idle with an antivirus on. I would recommend the I9505 if it's around the same price. air gestures are alright but aren't really as useful as I would like. Doesn't sit flat without a case as the camera sticks out from the phone. This phone gets warm... It's a pretty good measure of your battery life essentially jumping off a cliff. Bloatware... This phone has a bit but most tie in with the sensors on the phone, not a bad as one through a service provider, but it still, some ore just not useful at all.

Other Thoughts: I personally like the plastic, it makes this phone light and easy to switch our batteries and micro SD cards. It is overall a good phone so I will give it 5 stars, not too sad I didn't wait for the Galaxy S5 over this.

Noctua NH-U14S 140mm SSO2-Bearing (Self-stabilising oil-presure bearing) CPU Cooler

Pros: It's heavy for it's overall size. Mounting was a breeze and the overall performance is better than my 120mm liquid cooler. 24-32C at idle and 43C at max load with a 4th gen i7.
It's quiet as a whisper for it's size, I hear my 200mm fans over this. It clears high profile RAM without overlapping.

Cons: There is only one major one but it is mostly for LGA 1150 motherboards with the top slot being PCIe 1x it does overlap slightly (at least with A maximus VI Hero) where if you use a card ther it will push against it slightly, can be fixed with electrical tape on the soldered points of your card but just a warning. Noctua's site read it was compatible however it touches the card so be forewarned. To my knowledge the NH-U12S doesn't have this issue but it isn't quite as good, still would be good for an i5 or a lower watt chip. Haswell just runs hotter than most chips.

Other Thoughts: I wish Noctua would make some different colored fans but I guess it's branding. Not too big of an issue for me and their fans are the best so they shouldn't need to be replaced unless you want to lose performance. I wish they would make 200mm fans, I'd kill for a 200mm version of the fan included with this, just a suggestion.

EVGA G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card 04G-P4-3774-KR

Pros: These cards are wonderful, I bought one for my first custom build and I was not disappointed for the price. The heatsink works well and it shows by the sheer weight of it. I just bought another for SLI and it nearly doubled the performance on synthetic benchmarks and carried over in games that support SLI.

On the whole I love these cards and hope they will continue to serve me well for a while. For the money they are better than a high-end card and 2 in a PCI-e 3.0 x8/x8 will out perform a titan with a good amount of ram. at higher fan speeds it can get a little loud but it isn't crazy compared to some.

Cons: It's heavy, after a few months my first card is ever so slightly bending from the sheer weight of the heatsink I won't take off an egg for that as it isn't an alarming bend but it should be noted.

Other Thoughts: I'd have killed for some backplates for these to be included but that's ok. I would recommend the 4GB version for SLI setups and don't mix and match the 2GB and 4GB.
