5 out of 5 eggs One of the best custom cooled RX 480 cards on the market 08/24/2016

This review is from: MSI Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 RX 480 GAMING X 8G 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card

Pros: -Extremely quiet. MSI managed to get the fan profile right when so many competitors got it wrong.
-Excellent VRAM and VRM cooling.
-Maintains out of box clock of 1303mhz with no throttling.

Cons: -Wider than a lot of other custom 480 options (Nitro+ and GTR).
-No Dual bios (Nitro+, GTR, Red Devil all have this)

Other Thoughts: At full load, the max fan speed is around 1500rpm (30% fan speed) averaging around 68c. This is definitely the best RX 480 for someone that is looking for that out of box / plug n' play experience. The Gaming X is quiet, fits in practically all mid-tower cases due to not being that long; it's about 1 inch longer than the reference RX 480.

For the tinkerer, the MSI gaming app allows for changing the LEDs. The card is also one of the better overclockers and once overclocked to the Nitro+ stock speed, the fans remain quiet and can be left on auto.

This is one of the best representations of what a top notch RX 480 should be.

Ergotech 100-D16-B03-TW Triple LCD Desk Stand

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent solution for triple 1080p 22" monitors 08/22/2016

This review is from: Ergotech 100-D16-B03-TW Triple LCD Desk Stand

Pros: -Sturdy and durable construction.
-Entire thing is mostly metal.

Cons: -Mounts for side monitors aren't as easy to adjust and fine tune compared to the XFX tristand.

Other Thoughts: For the money this is an excellent option for those with limited desk space and want to run 3 monitors. I'm running this with triple 1080p 22" monitors. Excellent for Freesync gaming since Freesync monitors are available in the 22 and 24" sizes.

SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 Fury 100379NTOC+SR 4GB 4096-Bit HBM PCI Express 3.0 x16 TRI-X OC+ (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -The R9 Fury Nitro is quiet, fast, and has low idle power with multimonitor.
-Best factory overclock compared to other versions.
-Backplate included.

Cons: -Large and tall so it may be limited to larger mid-tower and full tower cases.

Other Thoughts: The R9 Fury is often overlooked but it the best AMD gpu since the HD 7970. The Fury doesn't have different memory clocks so it idles well with multimonitors regardless of display resolutions and timing. It also has good power consumption using around the same amount of power as the 980 ti. One of the best graphics cards for anyone on Team Red. Excellent GPU for a livestreaming PC. Everything about it just works.
