EVGA 02G-P4-3063-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card w/ ACX Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Its DEFINATELY is a huge upgrade over my aging GTS450. EVGA has been the backbone of my system and every card has been an awesome buy. HOWEVER, this thing is LOUD. Though you can set the fan speed through precision X and control the noise, its still much more audible than my h50 push pull set up when running over 50C. Other than that it has great power and frames have increased a bit (still have the gts450 in there for now as a physX card) But maybe the noise may subside once i get the side cover back on, not sure if it will help much

Cons: Just 2, as mentioned, the noise is horrendous. at least for me. I'll see how it plays out in the coming weeks. Secondly, Why EVGA, why do you put the warranty sticker on the back of the circuit board?? As I have been running the system, the heat has made the sticker curl up and almost peel off. Is there really no where else to put it? Flat plastic surface perhaps?? Hopefully there will be no RMA issues in the future so they cant blame me for tampering with it.

Other Thoughts: Still may consider getting a second later but only if i get these fans to be less obnoxious. time will tell

EVGA GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 01G-P3-1526-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's been 2 yrs and this card is still going strong. Handled many photoshop files over 3gb. It manages some online games like WOT and STWOR. But isn't the greatest. Still all in all a very good purchase

Cons: None

Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition 120mm High Static Pressure Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050008-WW)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have an oc'd i7920 on corsair h50 push pull set up. my idle temp has already dropped 11 degrees with the amount of air these bad boys are moving in here. 2350rpm, they produce quite a bit of noise. These two fans clearly drown out the 4 nzxt 140mm i have running in here constantly

Cons: if you are looking for a quiet running system, then these arent for you. they hum and hum. it doesnt bother me too too much as i usually have a headset on while the wife watches tv in the same room. may take some getting used to as i refuse to go back to my older corsair fans running at 1200rpm and idle temp at 30 degrees

Other Thoughts: not a bad purchase but perphaps its me who is ignorant to higher rpm fans and their noise level. I will be purchasing the AF140 quiet editions later to replace the nzxts. we will see just how quiet they will be
