Pros: Gtx 580's are fast. I've had 2 of the first batch of amp!'s since jan 2011 and just got one of these for a 3rd.
Cons: Like Mike said, and I can confirm, these latest batch seem to require a voltage bump to reach advertised speeds.
Other Thoughts: The first batch were binned fairly well but this new listing under the same name seem to be avg 580's with a voltage bump that still isn't quite enough to be stable at factory oc. It doesn't bother me a whole lot as I'm running 3 580's on air and don't plan on overclocking them too much, though it would have been nice to have some voltage headroom like I had on the first wave of amp! cards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 10 months later and these things are still super charging my gameplay.
Cons: None. This was totally worth it.
Other Thoughts: Running 2 of these cards on a p67a-ud7-b3 board stacked on top of each other for 10 months. The temps stay cool, I don't hear the cards, I don't get frustrated with the cards, I don't have any driver issues, I don't see loss of frames. I have afterburner running in screen 2 just to keep an eye on the temps and it still maxes out 78-79c on the top card about 73c max on the bottom. I've gotten a ton of gaming and cuda crunching via boinc out of these cards and looking forward to a whole lot more with them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great idea.
Cons: Hydra just not ready for primetime yet.
Other Thoughts: Again, great idea. They just need to polish this tech a bit more before putting it on the market. Read Tom's review.READ FULL REVIEW
