Pros: To start off, I bought this off of another site (a rep from work). I first wanted this, because it was white (building a white themed pc). I then started looking into it more, went by what the specs were listed. When I first starting using it, I'll never go by what mfg specs say. This thing never let me down! I wasn't gaming before I had this gpu, I was always fighting with setting boxes open, or monitoring fps. With this card, I don't have a worry of what I can do. I've pushed it and pushed it, and it works way better than preceived. I don't worry about heat at all either.
Cons: In my opinion, a lot of people will veer away from this card due to the color, but in a black and white build, this thing completes it. Heck even in an all black build, this card would be pretty sweet to have in it.
I like the color, just saying that now
Other Thoughts: I probably wont be needing any other gpu's anytime soon. I like this one
Im running this with the Asus Z87-Pro and an i5 4670K processor, 16 GB DDR3 1866mHz RAM, 120GB Toshiba SSD (its been a beast) and a 1TB Seagate Barracude 7200 RPM HDD. Dark Knight CPU heatsink and a 750w PC Power and Performance PSU (white). I was running at 670 in the machine before, and I was getting great results with it also. This card though, I don't think I'll ever have to upgrade it ha!
This review is from: FirePower Mk III Series PPCMK3S750 PC Power and Cooling Silencer 750W Power Supply
Pros: The fan switch is neat, cables fit in a full atx case, and are easy to manage. Enough connections to suit my needs. Works great and stays quiet. The design looks great in a white case.
Cons: Not much of a con but with the PCI connectors, theres an extra 2 pins that hang there, doesn't bother me much though. Just saying it so you guys know
Other Thoughts: RMA'd my first PSU (was not what I wanted) and ordered this. Works great!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I tested this board's limits right after installing my OS. This board has been my favorite. It's fast, the Z87 chipset is a plus, USB 3.0 and SATA 6, even down to the wireless antenna (doubles as a hotspot) and the use of bluetooth too! I have an i5 4670k installed in this thing, and the board runs around 22 C with the stock i5 running around 25-28 C range. Overclocked, the board still runs around 28 C.
Cons: You can say color is a con, but I like the gold, and it sits in my case anyway, so why bother putting it down as a con?
I don't have any cons against this motherboard
Other Thoughts: I looked at a lot of boards when the Z87 chipset came out. I mostly looked at this one and the MSI equivalent one to it. I took the ASUS for what it can do. The MSI could do the same thing, and at a lower cost, but I wanted something that I felt would last me a few years without trouble.READ FULL REVIEW
