Pros: Runs most of my fav games @ silky 60fps with vsync on with maxed settings
Card controls temps great (idle 24c haven't seen it go over 65c under load)
Card has weight to it and doesn't feel flimsy or cheap
Extremely quiet ....... don't think i have even heard it over the few 80mm case fans i have installed
Backplate and blue reactor / LED's look cool
Cons: Price! (paid $330 after Rebate)
IMO all of the high end GPU's are WAYYY overpriced......you will pay $$$ for high quality video with high framerates....period
Driver support could be better with some games.......no egg taken
Other Thoughts: Installed this in a somewhat older computer:
i7 2600 (stock speeds 2.7 ghz)
ASUS Sabertooth X58
Windows 8.1 64x
(Nvidia driver 331.82)
BF3 and 4 without vsync average around 50-60fps on ultra settings in MP.... very playable but the framerate does drop below 60fps at times with settings maxed but its still smooth enough i haven't even tried to lower the quality ;)
Skyrim with all the HD mods runs silky smooth constant 60 fps with vsync and uses about 1.5gb of vram.......really impressed with the performance on this one!!
Far Cry 3 has pretty bad frame drops in certain areas (30-40fps ouch) thinking this is driver related as its not even utilizing all the gpu power when it happens......still does a pretty good job keeping it close to 60fps with some of the settings lowered.......very playable and looks great still
Nvidia Shadowplay software works great!!!! Have a good round in BF??? Just press Alt+f10 and it drops the last 10 minutes of gameplay into documents / video folder.........VERY COOL !!!
Was glad the card came with Newegg's Ironegg return policy incase i wasn't happy and decided to return it........nah......i'll be keeping this........but thx ;)
Pros: Clean stable power, plenty of connections, overall just a tough unit!
Cons: No fan LED (no egg taken)
SATA power connectors upside down? (maybe this unit was designed to mount in the bottom of a case and have the cable running upward, but mounting on the top of the case I had to twist the connector around to make it fit, wasn't a big deal for me so again no egg taken.)
Other Thoughts: My system stays on 24/7 and after around 2 years the unit finally failed to power up my system after shutting down for routine cleaning maintenance. Contacted Corsair and had it replaced relatively easy through their RMA process.
Got a great deal from Newegg (Black Friday deal) so I picked up another one of these just for back-up / testing purposes.
Don't be afraid to pick up one of these if the price is right !!!
Pros: Quality, Price!
NO DEAD PIXELS !!!!
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Newegg really is the best in the business !
Free 3 day shipping got here in 2...
ULTRA light and ULTRA thin....
I love Acer Monitors! I have bought several of them over the years.
