Pros: The last review I wrote was incorrect. There is a setting that may not have seemed so obvious to enable over clocking. Please ignore my last review. Newegg please delete it.

Cons: Complicated bios

Pros: Fast for a single card with plenty of vram. Looks sharp and is customizable either red or yellow.

Cons: Very power hungry and a hot head. Very picky about working with certain drivers. Day one I installed this 6 months ago it flickered and the monitor went black. Had to pick and choose more up to date drivers for this to work in safe mode. Windows technical preview installed the wrong driver and crashed the screen as well. Forget about using beta drivers. I tried this card in two different systems with plenty of psu headroom just to be sure..

Other Thoughts: Was tempted to get a second card now that its on sale but why throw good money after bad. I read that RMA'ing the card is useless as they send the cards back telling you theres nothing wrong with it from previous reports. I talked to tech support and they think certain drivers don't set the screen refresh rate appropriately. Well this is a serious problem. I have even updated the firmware to the latest. Forget about resell value if the card is a dud. I like Asus as a company, esp their motherboards, but their driver support for audio and video components is fair at best. STAY AWAY!!!
