Pros: Pretty quite. Drop in and go. Look cool (if that your thing).
Cons: Back plate will get warm. Not sure if it is the cooler pushing the air around the card, or the ram running hot. The card will still slope down, so I think Asus runs a bit to thin on their circuit boards for this card.
Price is another issue, my first card ran me $420 here at new egg, and it only dropped to $300. IMO this is a $200 to $220 card. If I didn't already own a 670, I would have gone for a gpu with more ram or waited till price of the 780ti get reasonable or gone with the r9 290x.
Other Thoughts: Bought this 2nd card for SLI with my exact same 670 on a new 1440p using a overclocked 3750k to 4.5ghz and 8gb of 1600 ram. BF4 on ultra with my single oc'd 670 at 1080p/60hz would pull in 47-68fps. My new Qnix 1440p monitor at 60hz will do 28-48fps on ultra. Now with the addition to SLI 54-74fps. I was able to overclock my monitor to 110hz though in order to run BF5 my setting very from low to medium to lock my fps at 110 to match my monitor. I am blown away at how well the game looks and feels so in that respect I am thrilled with my set up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: Good sounding. finish is great.
Cons: Wish the volume control's lighting would turn off as the computer shuts down. I could control it in my bio's, problem is I also use usb to charge my phone at night with pc turned off...oh well, I now have to unplug the headphones at night.
Other Thoughts: The main reason why I am writing this review is the old reviews might have on potential customers. You no longer need to register the product to download the software. The software is a must to get a good/great sound out of this headset. Not sure if a sound card will make a improvement.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: What you expect in a good ssd for fast app loading, and strength. Great for a laptop.
Cons: This is my first refurbished item. I was worried once I opened the item. I didn't really care that the original box was missing, just that the drive was look used. By the scratches on the case, I would assume the previous owner used this as a portable back up drive.
Other Thoughts: Everything tested OK and the drive works. I installed this in my wife's '09 macbook pro. Start up was 1 minute 45 sec to now 45 seconds. I expected 15 to 25 seconds but apps load in under a second, and now I don't have to worry if my young son drops the laptop while the the drive is working....I am happyREAD FULL REVIEW
