This review is from: HAWKING HAWNR1 Hi-Gain Wireless Router with Range Amplifier IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Good while it worked
Cons: Crapped out on me today after having bought it last May. Not a very good life cycle on these units if they don't even make it 18 months. I'd recommend a different brand moving forward.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ok guys, just wanted to write a quick update on this card. I've had it since March / 2014. I've noticed a lot of folks are having the "random crashing" problems. Here is what the issue is as I have since run into this and found a solution. The stock fan speed profile is simply not aggressive enough. Because this is a factory overclocked card, heat has an even bigger impact on it than on a reference clocked card with regard to stability.
As it got into summer and the temps in my house warmed up, I started running into random crashing in games, but the card was fine in the spring when it was cooler. I downloaded Afterburner from MSI and didn't change the clock speeds or voltage at all, simply used the built-in custom fan profile tool to design a more aggressive fan profile configuration.
Cons: Cont'd from above -
Since enabling this more aggressive fan profile, I have not had a single crash on my system. Temps on the card never go above ~75*C (fan speed is usually around 75-80% at that temp with my custom fan profile).
Other Thoughts: So anyway, just wanted to share with you all as I've noticed a lot of reviews mentioning the crashes -- I'd bet money it has to do with the temperature of your cards since these are factory overclock models and they don't have the tolerance to heat that a reference clocked card will have.READ FULL REVIEW
