Enzotech Type-X AM2 Retention Modules

5 out of 5 eggs Hope for AM3 Coolers! 05/12/2010

This review is from: Enzotech Type-X AM2 Retention Modules

Pros: Allows my Xigmatek Dark Knight to be mounted vertically on my MSI NF980-G65 AM3 board (with some modifications, see below)


Cons: Required modification for the Dark Knight, but I'm not taking off an egg, as that wasn't exactly what this bracket was for.

Other Thoughts: I got this in hopes of mounting my Xigmatek Dark Knight in a vertical orientation on my AM3 board. However, it didn't work out of the box... After mounting the Type-X retention module to the board, I realized the Knight's 775 bracket was too short to allow the cooler to touch the CPU. So, I put the plates that go on the cooler on upside down. It was then too tall, so I cut two springs in half and used them as four. This allowed my Dark Knight to reach the CPU with the springs still giving enough force to provide a secure mount.

I hope that helps someone!

5 out of 5 eggs Stylish looking controller! 08/04/2009

This review is from: ZALMAN MFC1 Plus-B Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller

Pros: This controller looks awesome in a Silverstone Sugo SG-01. The leds match perfectly!
The aluminum looks to be the same quality then my Silverstone case.
The leds aren't blindingly bright. They're just enough to show you which ones are turned up, and which ones are set to silent.

Cons: The knobs do seem a bit flimsy, but they're not so bad that I feel like they're going to fall off.
You can't turn fans off with the controller, but perhaps that is a good thing. You wouldn't want to accidentally turn the wrong one off...

EVGA 896-P3-1171-AR GeForce GTX 275 Superclocked Edition 896MB 448-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It uses all of the GT200's 240 cores.
It can handle any game out there (although perhaps not at the highest settings).
EVGA lifetime warranty, and excellent EVGA support and community, and EVGA step up!
For the price, this is a great bang for your buck!
2 of these in SLI will be faster AND cheaper than a 295 (at time of writing).

Cons: This card runs hot! I got one and had to RMA it because it always reached above 90c! Even after I replaced the thermal paste!
EVGA RMA was great and speedy. I had my new card within a few days!
The one I have now caps out at 84c which is still warm, but it doesn't crash like that last card I had.
Draws quite a bit of power, but not as much as some other cards out there.
Not the best overclocker, but every card is different, and I could just be unlucky.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have enough power to run this before getting it. However, I'm running a single card on an OCZ Fatal1ty 550w PSU and it's doing just fine.
