ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1070 STRIX-GTX1070-O8G-GAMING 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Single eight-pin PCI Express power connection
- Cool pulsing lighting
- Quiet and cool running
- Runs 5k monitor easily
- Three quiet but effective fans

Cons: - Micron memory (instead of Samsung) requires BIOS update
- Only two Display Port ports (vice four on competing products) but that is offset with two HDMI 2.0 ports (not found on reference design cards) so may not be a con for most people

Other Thoughts: I am using this with a HP Z27Q 5k monitor. World of Warcraft images really pop and the game is running at 70 frames per sec at 5120 x 2880 resolution. Asus does a great job with packaging and the card looks menacing housed in a Thermaltake Core X9 case.

be quiet! DARK BASE PRO 900 ATX Full Tower Computer Chassis - Black/Orange

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Cool features but poor design for price 07/24/2016

This review is from: be quiet! DARK BASE PRO 900 ATX Full Tower Computer Chassis - Black/Orange

Pros: - Innovative wireless phone charger
- "Silent Wings 3" fans
- Clean appearance
- Noise insulation on front door

Cons: - The instructions are poorly laid out
- The "removable motherboard tray" is a NIGHTMARE to try to reinstall if you ever decide you want to remove the nine screws holding it in. I saw no way to align the holes except by guessing where the screws attached to the thin sheet metal of the case making them VERY difficult to reinstall and easy to strip.
- The glass window is held on with four female thumbscrews and the glass is flush to the case. This make removal and installation difficult and clumsy.
- The motherboard tray has the fan/led lighting controller and all its cables attached to the back of the tray making the "removable motherboard tray" that much more cumbersome.
- The front door is poorly secured and will flop open if the case is tilted forward when handling.
- Front fan filter is difficult to remove for cleaning
