XFX Double D Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition DirectX 11 FX797GTDFC 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: Good performance while running. Temps ran low. Even when crossfired.

Cons: Not reliable at all. The first one died in a week and I got to return it to Newegg. The second one lasted about 6 months and just died. I did get intermittent shut downs but I wasn't sure it was the graphics card until it shut down in smokey death. At the mercy of XFX for RMA now.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what happened to XFX up until the 7970's all of the XFX products I have owned have been rock solid. They also have been changing up their website for the worse ( I think it was outsourced hardcore). My advice to anyone looking at buying an XFX product right now is to steer clear :(

COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So far one of the best fans I have bought. Glad I got them on sale as the rebate is well... read on.

Cons: The rebate form is a joke. First the item# on it doesn't exist and that might be their loop hole to deny it. And they expect you to check up on it... after 10 weeks! However, the next line states that Cougar throws away denied rebates at 3 months (12 weeks!) thus giving you only a 2 week window to ask if it was approved. Oh and expected processing takes 12-16 weeks and thats listed first so if you end of waiting 4 months and then inquire, you guessed it, they trashed the record. That in conjunction with the strange instructions to put the rebate together (item number on the envelop? throw salt over your shoulder?) makes me think that I probably wont get this rebate.

LOGISYS Computer CS2006BK SOHO 1 All Black Tool Less ATX Case w/480W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: ...

Cons: Yeah I know that combos might be incompatible but to combo a case with a MB that doesn't fit right is just wrong. Before I bought the combo I made sure the other items were compatible but didn't think to check that the case couldn't support mATX. Oh yeah, and the case didn't ship with the power cord or any screws or MB standoffs.
