A reasonable upgrade.3/26/2019 9:42:54 AM

Pros: I was looking for a new, sub $300, card that would give me a good boost in games from a 950 gtx. This was a solid deal and the difference between the TI and non TI (this is non TI) was acceptable. It was easy to install, met my length requirements, and went as expected. So far everything has been cranked up on my games and no issue.

Cons: Non so far.

Overall Review: Only gripe was when I ordered this it was showing, and indicating, there was a driver CD and "accessories" box. That's changed since then, but oh well.

Big, but worth it.6/21/2013 6:21:57 PM

Pros: The i5-4670 Haswell stock cooler wasn't working keeping the chip cool so I rolled this after seeing the great reviews. Sure it was a pain to take my build completely apart, but worth it in the end. The install was a bit tricky with getting the back plate on, but once that happened everything else fell into place as it should. This knocked chip from hitting 100f on prime95 down to 69f at max load. Worth it for the price!

Cons: I had to bump my RAM over a slot because the fan was big. If I had low riser RAM it might not have been a problem, but it ended up not being a big deal.

Overall Review: Build: MSI H87-G43 LGA CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Intel Core i5-4670 Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W Coolmaster 212 EVO Heatsink

Solid PSU6/21/2013 6:17:17 PM

Pros: A nice PSU that drops in easy and is quiet. I debated going with the twin and using the modular cables, but these look fine and are nicely sleeved. So far no problems with the install or powering my rig.

Cons: The flat black paint scratches easy so watch out if that bothers you .. I forgot how much a pain extra cables are! :D

Great CPU, but hot.6/21/2013 6:14:35 PM

Pros: A great jump from an AMD 600+ x2. Easy to install.. Speedy. Power efficient. Very quiet with the fan.

Cons: Watch out for the heatsink. The little bit of thermal paste doesn't do a good job covering the chip and this sucker runs hot. After fiddling with the paste covering I tried prime95 and was hitting 100f pretty quick. I opted to use the Coolmaster 212 Evo and now things are as they should be - thermal wise

Solid board for Haswell6/21/2013 6:10:37 PM

Pros: Cheap, great connections, and easy to install. I wasn't looking to OC my processor, and wanted to reallocate some funds for a hard drive. The board was great for the price, and fit well. All the connections were well labeled, and the USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s were a nice pick me up. Also it has stupid fast boot up times.

Cons: Not the pizazz of a Z87 board. When I installed the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO the fan hung over onto the first RAM slot. Oh well - I bumped my chips over one and it worked great.

Last case I'll ever need2/8/2009 8:53:14 AM

Pros: - 2 Large fans with variable speed. - Black - Spacious - solid construction - quiet - multiple HD mounds - power supply on the bottom - air filter - tons of screws, brass mountings, thumbscrews, and so forth.

Cons: - no speaker - I wished the front side ports cabling was routed differently

Overall Review: Great case.. I was a bit worried that my video card was going to be too long and but up to my hard drives - nope not so much!
