SAPPHIRE DUAL-X Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 100314-4L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card

Pros: This card works great by its self and even better in crossfire. I have two of these cards, in crossfire, and I am very happy with the performance.

Cons: Takes up quite a bit of space in the case. Each card takes up two slots worth of space, so forget any other add on cards. This card does not come with a crossfire bridge, you'd have to get one somewhere else.

Other Thoughts: Two of these cards are working fine in my Cooler Master 932 HAF case. Heat is not a problem and my 850 watt PSU is powering the whole rig just fine. I'm running a AMD FX8350, 32 Gigs G.Skill Sniper 1866. The AM3+ and PCIE 2.0 architecture is obsolete, but my rig is running the games I play at very high settings, without any problem.

5 out of 5 eggs Cool and quiet. 01/23/2016

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm

Pros: Dropped temps on the CPU as advertised.

Cons: Just FYI, the install can be time consuming. My case required me to pull the whole motherboard out to get at two of the stock CPU cooler mounting screws. Other than that the build was not difficult.

Other Thoughts: This dropped the temps of my CPU, and made the whole system more quiet. The stock air cooler was pretty noisy when fan RPMs started to rise. This unit uses two power connectors. One 3pin for the pump, and one 4pin for the fan. This is my first liquid cooling install.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1866 (PC3L 14900) Laptop Memory Model F3-1866C11D-16GRSL

Pros: Easy to install. Noticeable improvement in performance.

Cons: None. It is RAM...

Other Thoughts: I installed these as a pair into my new laptop, after installing Windows 10. The machine recognized them right off, no problem. The machine runs smoother, and no real heat problems.
