good gpu past defects... 12/13/2012
-great design on the air flow for these. very little heat gets out the front (where the connectors are), mostly all heat is dissipated in the rear.
-nice sleek design
-performance is GREAT once you get past defects (or hope you dont have any)
-these cards run HOT. at high setting/ultra, im running dirt 2 at about 85c, AC3 on ultra at 84c. but all other games (bf3, bo, bo2, mw2, ect) are all right around 70c.
-with how hot these get you would think it would be easier/more common to be able to get a block for these... i had to have custom order from ek...
-last pet peve, ive RMAed these idk how many times. seems to ALWAYS be the vram. thats what other people say on forums too. thats the one bad thing about these cards. be careful OCing... and once you get your new card, hope its a good one
really for the money, single or even sli, these cards are great. they should of watched the vram more than they did but its ok. ive been running for 3 months now, no RMA, and theyre fine. as long as theyre in warranty and you can RMA, youre ok.
-other thought, sell them right before warranty expires, get better cards? theyre great cards, just cant do much with bad vram and a expired warranty... :\ (unless you pick up extended warranty)
