EVGA Nvidia GTX 970 SSC ACX Cooling 2.0 4 GB Graphics Card

Price: £289.98

5.0 out of 5 stars EVGA nailed it!!, 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awesome card! EVGA has fixed all the mistakes they made with the early versions of the 970 with this card. Up to the posting of this there are only two EVGA cards with all the issues fixed that is the SSC and the FTW+

As you can see by the pictures, the SSC and FTW+ have the large copper base plate that contacts the full area of the gpu die and 3 straight copper pipes making the cooler much more efficient than the other versions of this card. The other picture is of the other versions of the card and you can see that only 2 of the 3 heat pipes make contact with the gpu die.

All in all the only difference i see from the SSC to the FTW+ is the FTW+ comes with a back plate, however i bought 1 from Ebay for £20 although it is personal preference whether you need 1 or not.

Full list of improvements:
dBi - dB Noise Inverter turns fans off below 60C, generating 0dB of noise during idle!
QSD BIOS - Quick Switch Dual BIOS allow you to switch to secondary BIOS with the flick of a switch.
MMCP - Memory MOSFET Cooling Plate reduces MOSFET temps by 47% and Memory by 14%.
OPT - Optimized Power Target offers 33% more power over reference.
SHP - Straight Heat Pipes reduce GPU temperature by almost 5C!

As for the complaint about only having 3.5gb of 'useable' ram. this is true for every brand of the gtx970 and the fault is Nvidea's and not any of the companies selling them.

Gigabyte GZ-MA02 Micro-ATX Case

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little case for office / none gaming use, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent little case, well built with plenty of room for a cheap 'none gaming' rig.

Pros:
All black interior.
good solid sides (for the price)
Large amount of room for a graphics card, the full length of the case.

Cons:
No room behind the motherboard tray for cable management.
Only enough room for 2 small case fans, 1 at the front and one at the back.
Flimsy plastic finished front panel.
The disc drive button on the case opens along with the 'flap' at the front meaning you need to physically push the drive back in by hand.

Western Digital blue hard drives are probably the most reliable hard drives out there, i bought this as my older 500gb version is now about 6-7 years old and still going strong.

Excellent little APU for my 6 year old's minecraft / goat simulator / movies desktop. I will probably upgrade it to the A10-series at some point when he's older.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enthusiast level gaming ram, 15 May 2015

Good quality ram ideal for enthusiast level gaming, It does have quite a 'high profile' so be aware if it needs to fit beneath a large aftermarket air cooler that it may not fit.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a pain, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case looks nice but Its a pain to get it into your pocket as the rubber on the corners seem to 'stick' to clothing, something to bare in mind if you usually keep your phone in your jeans pocket. also the case doesn't quite stay on the phone correctly and keeps coming off at one side.

Overall not happy with it and will be buying a different case.

its a can of gas that works. My only issue was that the plastic lid was smashed on arrival so it may be a little brittle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice look but poor quality., 16 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This chair is cheaply made, the arms are made of a plastic that the slightest knock causes the silver finish to disappear and reveal the black plastic underneath.The stitching is frayed in places and the leather is ill fitting.

The chair has no 'lean back' so you must always sit upright which may or may not be an issue depending on your needs.

When assembling the chair the screw holes didn't line up, I'm a 35 year old Joiner and not a stranger to assembling things but i had to bend some of the parts just to make it fit. I may have just gotten a 'bad one' but it wasn't just the one issue i had.

The overall look of the chair is nice, from a slight distance which is why i didn't give it 1 star.
