An awesome card for the eye and fingers

Posted

Pros: beautiful, light, rubber-plastic finish, runs cool even with oc, fairly good gpu

Cons: unfortunate packaging, no xfire bridge included, not as high overclockable in msi afterburner as other 7770s

I bought this card mainly because of it's looks. It looked much nicer than all other 7770s. Later I also added a Gigabyte 7770 oc. As I unpacked it, I noticed the case is out of a rubber-plastic mix so it feels awesome in your hands and It looks much better in my case than a regular plastic card would. I first stress-tested it in a gpu stability test. The temps were around 68C. Then I did it again but overclocked it in msi afterburner to 1250mhz. The temps were around 72C and didn't go higher. I read in another test (the only review I could find) that the card went over 100C stressed in it's regular overclocked state (1150mhz). It must have had a faulty fan. Now to the cons: The box...

Good PSU for cheap, old systems

Posted

Pros: green fan looks nice, braiding, ultra silent,

Cons: Not good psu for newer computers,

This PSU is only a good PSU for old computers. The 5v rail is very much (216w) in comparism while the 12v rail is only 280w. I have no idea why they bothered to stick two pcie cables on it because it's not even able to handle one low powered vga graphiccard. (for ex. i tesed it with the g210) The efficiency is also really bad. The PSU looks nice but really- if you don't want to use it as a replacement for your grandmas broken psu- don't buy it.

Nice board without an ugly video-out port

Posted

Pros: no video-out, enough USB ports, 4 dimm slots, 6 SATA ports, RAID 0, 1, 10 support

Cons: PCIe x1 and sata ports weren't working, too many pci slots, manual not complete

I really like this board's concept because it's made for people who want to do dual graphics with the apu. You don't get an ugly vga or dvi port so the rear I/O doesn't look as bad. There are enough USB ports and dimm slots slots. It also supports raid but not RAID5. That's not the fault of Asus but more the fault of AMD with their chipsets. The board itself uses the full of capabilities of the a75 chipset with sata hub support, sata III and USB 3.0. I'm not very happy that there are 3 PCi slots. Asus should have put the second pcie x1 slot where the first pci slot is and not bothered with a slot right under the blue pcie x16 slot because the board doesn't have a video-out so you will...
