EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very fast, easy to OC, I don't think its too loud as others have stated. Great selection - using 2 in SLI will be fantastic!

Cons: Only reason I am not giving it five eggs is that one of the cards arrived DOA. I am putting a new build together with 2 GTX 780s. I ran into problems when I loaded the drivers in - BSD. I thought it was a driver problem only to find out the secondary card was bad. RMAd with new egg and waiting on a new replacement.

Other Thoughts: This is the first time I have ever received a bad card from EVGA. I am very happy with them and will continue to do business. I guess you cant expect them to catch 100% of all potential problem cards.

Corsair Obsidian Series 900D CC-9011022-WW Black Aluminum ATX Super Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs one big frigging case for sure! 11/12/2013

This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 900D CC-9011022-WW Black Aluminum ATX Super Tower Computer Case

Pros: This sucker is HUGE! Would be perfect for liquid cooling of if you have the need for a crazy high number of HDDs (9 expandable to 15!).

Case arrived in perfect condition, not a scratch or dent. I have received cases in the past that suffered from poor packaging design. You would think with such a large case the chances of damage would be greater but the simple yet effective packaging served the purpose very well.

I have seen some remarks on the quality of the HDD bays stating that they are cheap. OK, they are plastic and not what I would consider built for continuous removal and install. Even the hot swap trays are of the same quality but I felt they were just fine for me. Not over engineered and not falling apart. The weak spot is the hinge on the bay door. A single pin that likes to work it's way out of position. The 5.25 front optical bays are easy to utilize. Cable management is easy due to the large space and the room on the underside of the MB. Not hard at all to produce a very clean looking install. You can fit any size Vid card in there with ease. Plenty of locations to mount rad's for cooling. The case is so dang good looking. The finish is one of the best I have ever put together!

Cons: While I did use a corsair H100I cooler for the CPU, I rely on fans to a large degree for keeping the GPUs cool. This case is huge but air flow appears to be not well thought out. A clean flow directly over the PCI cards would be nice to see. It is however perfect for a total liquid cooling set up.

Other Thoughts: I think with a case this large and considering the total weight of a finished machine I think casters would be an appropriate option.

Antec HCP-1300 Platinum 1300W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Full modular design is very nice! Great selection of cables with a nice length to them. I installed in an extra large case that would have required extensions with some PSU but was not an issue with this one. All cables are covered in Black sleeving and even the exposed portion of the wires are tinted Black. If you are into ascetics, it makes a difference.

Cons: None.
