ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Powerful, silent (so far).

Cons: It is pretty big and I had to remove a HD cage to fit it. But not that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: So I just gave this a one egg review since the PC kept on shutting down as soon as I started Battlefield (the game I play).
I figured out that the problem was that I was using the 8 pin power plug from my Corsair PSU. I should have been using the 6+2 pin power plug instead. As soon as I changed power plugs from 8 to 6+2 the card works great.
So since I am the idiot here and since you cannot edit old reviews (!?) I wanted to post this 5 egg review to somewhat make up for my premature 1 egg review.

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to install
Works fin for non-gaming tasks

Cons: As soon as I start Battlefield Hardline the monitor goes black and I get a DIV-No Signal message. Been googling this for hrs, trying everything that has been suggested but the problem remains. I guess my EVGA GTX 670 has to go back in and this one will have to be returned.

Other Thoughts: I went with ASUS because of (perceived) brand quality. But looks like my 2-3 year old EVGA card has it bet.

HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast. Easy install. Kingston honors warranty (added extra star for that).

Cons: Installed on 12/6/13, died on 4/28/14. Second HyperX SSD that failed in five months. My 240GB failed on 12/6 and this 120GB is what I replaced it with and now itfailed, yesterday.

Other Thoughts: Kingston will likely replace it like they did with the first one that failed back in December but not sure I want to keep using Kingston as it is such a hassle to have to replace my C: drive twice a year.
I still have the RMA replacement 240GB HyperX that I received for the December failure but I'm thinking that maybe I should try another brand for the main disk in my desktop.
