EVGA 04G-P4-3673-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW+ 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: While ordered through another vendor, I've been running these cards in Dual SLI for over a year with no issues at all. I play all support games across all 3 of my displays while still having a TV hooked up for movies, etc. I play everything on full Ultra settings and never drop below 60FPS (max monitor supported). They run cool and quiet.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: even with all the 700 series cards out, i'm in no hurry to upgrade. if you have the ability o pick up a few of these at a fair price, do it.

Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: To be clear Cooler Master has labeled the a test bench LAN box. That being said, it's a great case.

both side panels and the top panel easily come off giving you very clear access to all components inside. This case comfortably holds a lot of hardware. I can fit both of my GTX 670's along with a Corsair H100 CPU cooler. There is great space for either a 240 or 120 rad. I'm running my OS on a SSD that is stored underneath the MB. the MB mount is easily removed, allowing for great cable management. all the drive bays are easy to get to with 2 hot swap 3.5 bays at the front.

over all, well built and designed. very sturdy, comes with handles on both sides and has good airflow.

Cons: Not really a con so i'm not going to take an egg for it but i want to make sure this is clear. the only stock bays that will hold a 3.5" drive are the 2 hot swap X-Docks at the front. i would have also liked to have seen a locking mechanism of sorts to prevent an actively used drive from being pulled out by accident.

this case is very much aimed towards a 2.5" OS drive and considering the cost of SSD, even though they are coming down in cost, they are still a little pricey. i figure if this is the case you are going with though, the cost of a SSD probably isn't a big deal considering your regular buyer is not shopping for this model first.

Other Thoughts: Other than this case pushing you toward utilizing a 2.5" drive for the OS (which i do, a 240 SSD), it's a great case.

Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I've owned many Cooler Master cases over the last decade. This one is up to par with the rest. While my main PC is sitting in a HAF 932, this was a great price and solid case for the $49.99 i spent on it ($39.99 after rebate).

PSU is bottom loaded and many options for 120mm fan placement. The screwless mounting is simple and sturdy.

Another small thing that I really like about this case is the mounting bracket for the MB has a nice size gap where the CPU coolers mounting brackets go allowing for easy swap if necessary.

Lastly. Pictures are deceiving. I look at a lot of cases and like picking the ones where the interior is the same color as the exterior and not that primer grey color. I've order to many thinking it was going to come like the picture had shown and then it doesn't.....This one did.

Overall, great case. Looks real good for the extra rig I'm setting up.

Cons: none, but will update if anything comes up
