ASUS GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

3 out of 5 eggs ASUS GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card 03/28/2016

This review is from: ASUS GeForce GTX 980 STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: When it works, it is glorious. The Division on Ultra in 1080p reaches 60 fps with ease and is something to behold, and I have a non-performance monitor as well. I could only imagine what this card will be capable of on a 4k monitor. I have a few other games, but I have yet to get to them because I can not pull away from the way this card displays the clouds, the details, the shadows, the simulated combat etc, and the game play and its outstanding details! Heat is not a problem, the fans kick on when needed, but a well ventilated case (Corsair Graphite series) in a cool room helps tremendously with heat dissipation.

Cons: it buzzes, loudly. I turned off all my case fans and and even my CPU cooler fans, and I could hear this buzzing coming from the card itself, it fluctuates with the images being displayed on the screen. For example it's a low buzz when the game is in menu mode, but as soon as I enter into game play the card starts buzzing loud enough to hear over the case fans. I've tried multiple settings, even turning the fans up to 50% manually on the card through it's menu in an attempt to cool the card in an effort to prevent the loud buzzing. I've tried lowering the detail setting in game play, but lets face it, I didn't spend close to six hundred dollars on a card to run the settings in game on low so it doesn't buzz as much!!

The card has never been over clocked, or abused. There really is no need, I only game in 1080p at a inconsistent peak of 60 fps. So I don't know what the issue could be. I just know for certain I did not cause it.

Other Thoughts: MSI 990FXA-GD80 -mainboard with current updated bios as of March of 2016
AMD FX-8370 8 CORE processor with Noctua NH-D15 6 heatpipe with Dual NF-A15 140mm fans
Gskill 1333 memory -16 gigs
OCZ 240g SSD
Corsair CX750 power supply
Corsair Graphite series case - (meshed side, not windowed better airflow)

CORSAIR CX Series CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros: It's a Corsair. The quality you'd expect for the price you pay. On sale - $20 mail in rebate - $10 off Newegg discount.

Cons: Runs warmer than expected. Does not have a p4 connection for CPU power.

Other Thoughts: I've owned a few Corsair power supplies over the last few years and this is the first to run warm to the touch at the exhaust. It's only supplying power for my Linux Machine, one SSD, a pair of 4g DDR3 1333 (not over clocked), AMD Triple core (not over clocked) 6770 GPU (not over clocked) and a spare 2.5 500gb data drive & 2 CPU heat sink fans in Push/pull configuration, and 2 case fans.

Not sure if I should return this or just bite the bullet and wait.

5 out of 5 eggs Rosewill for the win...again! 12/24/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RX81U-ES-25A 2.5" SATA to USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Everything, It's easy to assemble, perfect fit, good construction, comes with a carry case, cable, mini screw driver & screws, driver cd. Looks great functions well. Transfer rates and performance are on par with this type of Enclosure equipment. Newegg, Rosewill = quality I can trust. Bought two, plan on getting a few more for family and friends.

Cons: One side is plastic of the two side covers, The other is a metal of some sort. Not really a con if it keeps the price low & or dissipates the heat.

Other Thoughts: I really like Rosewill products. I know they are not known (yet) for being a high end product line, but they are (so far) very reliable and dependable. I do not think twice when purchasing Rosewill.
