Pros: My card boost to 2079mhz on its own with no tweaking, I run fans at 95%, after a few minutes of gaming clocks drop to 2038mhz. This card I have wil run any bench at 2114mhz. Memory is pre-clocked to 10800mhz, was able to push memory to 11000mhz for bench runs. For gaming clocks this card is 100% stable at 2050/10900mhz.

Cons: Way too much stock thermal paste on gpu, 3d load temps were 59c at 95% fan speed. Removed cooler and applied Grizzly Kryonaut, 3d load temps now 53c at 95% fan speed.

Other Thoughts: Gpu is very heavy and sags a bit, currently using a small screw driver to support gpu on one end.

I have not had any fan speed issues as a few have had. I use MSI afterburner to manually set fan curve at 30% at idle.

Also I have a 1080 Fe here, the Fe will clock shift when hitting its power limit, this Amp Extreme will never hit its power limit, it is a much smoother gaming gpu than the Fe ever will be.

5 out of 5 eggs PNY CS2211 480GB fast and easy 03/29/2016

This review is from: PNY CS2211 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD7CS2211-480-RB

Pros: New 15nm Toshiba MLC NAND. 4 year warranty. Comes with Acronis free data migration key.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Owned this drive for about 1 week now. I upgraded from a almost 3 year old Crucial M500 480gb ssd. I mostly play computer games.

This drive feels faster than my old M500, the M500 for instance when I jump into a match for Battlefield 4 and enter a map the textures for the map would not be loaded and I could run around for sometimes 20 or 30 seconds waiting for textures to load. This PNY CS2211 loads the texture instantly, no waiting at all.

Another game I have tested was Tom Clancy's The Division. Using the M500 when fast traveling around the map it would take about 30 seconds or so. This PNY CS2211 takes on average maybe 10 to 15 seconds at most to load and fast travel around map.

The Acronis migration software is easy to use. I cloned 180gb of space from M500 to this PNY drive in about 8 minutes.

Pros: Easy to setup. Currently have this set installed on a Asrock Z170 OC formula mobo with a 6600k. As of today on gskills website they have this ram not being compatible with the mobo im using. But the ram works just fine, XMP profile easily enabled in bios. Ram works very well. Make sure you update your bios.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Passed memtest and windows memory diagnostic tool, no errors.
