This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15R 120mm Red LED Effizio Quiet Case Fan
Pros: Considering the amount of air these fans push. Quietest fans per fps I have ever owned. Also, since I put them on the side panel my gpu temp has dropped 3 c from the fans I was using before. These push the air, and quietly at that.
Other Thoughts: Owned a couple from another co. that claimed quiet. They sounded like a jet plane and pushed less air. Used them anyway. One broke down after 3 months, so thought I would try these. Really glad I have. These are some quiet fans.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plays bf4 on Ultra. 80fps average. Rare drops below 60
Came with free copy of BF4. Already have the game so someone is getting a stocking stuffer. bought at 299 before the price rising.
Cons: Price rise for others. You can blame the bitcoin miners for that.
Other Thoughts: This card runs smooth. No lag in games. Also runs fairly cool at 67c at load.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: bought before the raise in prices. future mantle for bf4
Cons: Don't know will not know until Tuesday when I receive
Other Thoughts: This part is for Alex.
I bought this card strictly for gaming. People that bitmine, or litecoin mine need to understand that doing so puts a great amount of stress on these cards. While I have never done so myself, a very good friend of mine does. He is running 3 7970s on an Asus rog board. He has mentioned on several occasions that you have to underclock the card for mining or you will fry it out. also apparently, you mine better when the card is underclocked. I do not understand the technical reasons behind this but I have been assured this is true. you can also read the same things I am saying in many places online. It is quite possible that by not underclocking your gpu and gpu memory, you fried the board yourself.
"and this doesn't seem to be an isolated incident"
Seems like kind of a broad statement. The low ratings on this card are due to the fact that some people are disappointed they did not receive bf4 as they where promised. That I can understand.
