Pros: I have not yet received the card but I will rewrite this review when I do. I am writing this to warn others buying the card right now.
DO NOT SHIP WITH FED-EX!
Fed ex will hand off your package to the Us Postal Service and add an additional 2-3 days to your shipping. The package will have taken over a week to be delivered by the time I receive it. A total rip off and extremely frustrating.
Cons: Fed Ex Shipping is a joke.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Great value for 8 gigs.
-Compliments my htpc perfectly
-Got exactly what I expected for the price.
Cons: -No heat spreader (but at this price I can hardly complain)
-Seems to hiccup at times.
-runs at 1088 initially and required some tweaking.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great little stick for your budget builds! I used it for my htpc, but I can't recommend this memory if you are doing a heavy or serious build.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: -Great price for a high performance board.
-Plenty of room for a sli or crossfire setup.
-Runs my amd-fx eight core flawlessly.
-The onboard sound is amazing! I had waited to buy a sound card and I am glad I did. Bought a 7.1 speaker system for it and it sounds beautiful!
Cons: My first few months of owning my computer I was consistently frustrated that any games I played would often crash or say I was missing a dll file that I actually had. Sometimes they would actually bsod my entire computer. I returned both my graphics cards and got replacements and still ran into this issue. So I completely re-installed windows. After all that, I decided that I would try to install a beta version of the bios for this board. FINALLY all my issues were resolved and my computer is a lean mean gaming machine like it's meant to be!
TL:DR: You will likely need to update the bios to a beta version from the gigabyte website to fully utilize your computer with this board.
Other Thoughts: Other than the bios problem, this is a FANTASTIC board, and I highly recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
