SilverStone FP57B Stackable 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works well, good construction, door opens easily

Cons: Would have been nice if the SATA cable wasn't built into the device, but rather have it built with a female connector. The cable built in is pretty long though, so even if you have a large case it should reach.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your SATA controller is set to ACHI mode, and
Windows write caching is disabled if you plan on inserting/removing a drive with Windows booted.

ZOTAC ZT-60901-10M G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -barely longer than the PCI-E slot, and not very thick for a dual-slot card either

-Stays very quiet, and cool, even under maximum load, the fan speed didn't go above 45%, and the temperature maxed out just under 70*C. Coil whine was negligible, I had to stick my ear right next to the card to hear it, and once I closed up my case it was gone completely.

-Memory overclocks pretty well, I was able to increase up to almost 6600MHz effective without any artifacting

Cons: Nothing that any other brand GTX 660 wouldn't encounter, but it was my experience when playing The Secret World, and Battlefield 3, with the settings maxed out, that the memory bandwidth was significantly limiting the framerate. If you are playing at resolutions over 1080p, I definitely would recommend a card with at least 256bit memory bandwidth.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to get a future-proof card that can play upcoming Direct X 11 titles on max, you may want to consider the GTX 670, as you will likely need the extra memory bandwidth in the future.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6950 DirectX 11 GV-R695OC-1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Bought two, unlocked shaders on both using TPU's guide (google 6950 shader unlock)
-Overclocked both (after shader unlock) to 910MHz core/300 MHz memory @1.05volts (down from 1.175) using ATI tray tools
-hashing at 405MH/s

Cons: Ummm, $/performance isn't quite as good as the 6800s..

Produces a LOT of heat when running side by side

Other Thoughts: 7870 for the win
