Pros: Mind blowingly fast. I replaced two 570s in SLI with this, BF4 is much smoother at 1440p. I was having issues with insufficient VRAM on the 570s (BF4 is consuming around 2.5GB of VRAM with FXAA enabled and ultra textures) and this has solved the problems completely.
Out of the box, I took it to +150MHz on the core and +350MHz on the memory with zero stability issues. It is much, much quieter than my 570s and much cooler. I was on the fence about whether or not it would be a big upgrade but I've been able to crank BF4 up quite a bit more and it is completely eliminated the frequent FPS drops I was having.
Cons: Only one is the price, really. Overpriced compared to the 290x.. but I think it's a better quality card. Cooler, quieter..
Other Thoughts: Only reason I picked Zotac was because Newegg had it on sale for $619. That being said, this is a reference card so it's essentially an nVidia card with a Zotac sticker on it. The card itself has no Zotac branding on it.
I wanted a reference card in case I want to SLI these later.
This review is from: Antec TRUEQUIET 140 140mm Case Fan
Pros: Fan is solid quality, the rubber grommets are a nice touch. Not sure they make a ton of difference in most cases but it's a nice feature to have. Construction is good, choice of molex or 3 pin mobo connector.
Cons: Little hard to remove fan after mounting due to screwless assembly. No medium setting like Antec Tricool fans, would be nice to have something in the middle.
Other Thoughts: I'd buy again, it'd be a 5 egg purchase at $9.99 but there are a lot of solid competitors at $14.99.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AVS Gear GP-IR02BK Vista 2 channel IR Remote Control
Pros: Emulates a Microsoft MCE remote, I am just using the receiver with my Logitech Harmony.
Other Thoughts: Even if you just need the IR receiver it is still pretty cost effective.READ FULL REVIEW
