Pros: So... I installed the RAM, selected XMP Profile#1 in BIOS. I haven't looked back. Great price and dependable.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've recently switched from AMD to Intel, and so far I've been delighted with this chip. I have this chip on a ASUS Sabertooth Z97 OC'd to 4.4Ghz with only the factory box cooler. No complaints.
Cons: This is probably not a con, and is probably more about the ASUS MB I am using. However, I noted that I was initially seeing instability in the CPU without OC. What I discovered was that when the board activated turbo on CPU, the MB factory voltage was insufficient. I manually tweaked the voltage and at the same time OC'd the cpu. Since then, I have had no stability issues.
So, not really a con and this is probably more to do with the MB than the CPU.
Pros: Overall, I'm very pleased with this card. I've been running EQNext Landmark closed beta with this card (and i7-4790k) and have been enjoying ~40 FPS in most map areas.
I've been so pleased with the card, I just ordered another one to run SLI.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
