Pros: Very fast, if it worked.
Cons: The HW compatibility list for this RAM lists the Asus z87-deluxe motherboard as compatible but does not function at the rated speeds. You are guaranteed 1600Mhz and nothing more according to GSKILL support.
I've contacted both Asus and GSKILL support, they both claim it should work at 2933Mhz but even after days troubleshooting and changing timings the system fails to post at the rated clock.
Do not spend extra money on this RAM, not worth it!
Other Thoughts: GSKILL support claims it could be the processors fault, wants to run ram at lower clock and waste my money.
ASUS didn't offer any troubleshooting, told me to RMA the motherboard (i'm pursuing that now)
This review is from: PowerColor HD 7000 Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 AX7870 2GBD5-6D 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Plug-in Card Eyefinity 6 Edition Video Card
Cons: I purchased this card for use with two new Dell U2413 monitors but unfortunately this card doesn't work with more than one monitor connected.
As soon as you connect the second monitor either by daisy chaining or using a second DP port you get a DisplayPort Link Failure warning. Installing the beta drives got me as far as mirroring the displays at 1920x1080 but it always fails for 1920x1200 and never works in extended mode. These monitors work great in daisy chain mode with my nvidia rig.
The catalyst software that manages the card is practically useless and extremely frustrating. It takes a reboot for settings to fully apply. Worst than Windows98.
Other Thoughts: Don't purchase AMD products if you just want it to work.
Last time I used AMD it was an Athlon CPU (constant over heating) so I decided to test them again, big mistake.
