Gaming Hardware Sales – $90 240GB SSD, H440 for $100, CLCs, & GTX 980

We figured we'd post another one of our regular weekend hardware sales round-ups before our impending Skylake and 7870K coverage. This weekend's sales include a $90 240GB SanDisk SSD, NZXT H440 marked down to ~$105, Enermax LiqTech CLC, and an EVGA GTX 980 SuperClocked card.

SanDisk 240GB Ultra II SSD ($90): SSD prices have continued to follow a downward trend as production has improved its yield and drive output. SanDisk's Ultra II drive – a suitable unit for mid-range performance in gaming machines – is presently available at $0.375 per gigabyte. The drive is equipped with a Marvell controller, as seems to be a new trend.

NZXT H440 Case ($105): NZXT's H440 is one of our best-liked cases we've ever reviewed. The enclosure is unoffensive and easily cable managed, with a move away from external optical drives and inclusion of a PSU shroud to differentiate the product. This black-and-red version is presently marked at $105, down from the usual ~$120.

Enermax LiqTech 240mm CLC ($110): This is a liquid cooler that precedes the model we're actively benchmarking. Enermax has been in the cases, cooling, and power game for a while now, but the LiqTech 240 has been a primary offering in the company's 240mm lineup.

EVGA GTX 980 SC ($508): EVGA's ACX 2.0 cooled GTX 980 SC card is another take on nVidia's GTX 980 brand card, something we reviewed here. The SuperClocked version is EVGA's way of marketing its pre-applied overclock to the GPU, something potentially useful to users who have absolutely no interest in embarking on their own overclocking endeavors.

Stay tuned to the site for several big and analytical articles this week.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
