This review is from: StarTech USB3S2SAT3CB USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable w/ UASP
Pros: Allowed me to clone my new Samsung 840 EVO SSD
It works... not really much else to say
Other Thoughts: Not much to say, did exactly what I wanted it to do with no problems. Cloned my existing SSD to a new 840 EVO SSD relatively easily. I also used it to transfer some files from a data hdd. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to use it for similar purposes.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - 4gb VRAM
- good scaling from crossfire
- runs eyefinity perfectly on max settings in any game ive tried
- comes with 30mhz overclock standard
- this card really shines if you put it under water
- comes with free BF4 code
Cons: - stock cooler is pretty much useless (too loud, doesnt remove heat effectively enough)
- stock temps under load are too high
- temp based throttling is stupid
Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these back in January of this year for use in a water cooling build. I used them for about a week before installing the watercooling, and while the fans were loud they were not overbearing. Since installing the watercooling loop, these cards have performed flawlessly.
If you are going to buy this card tho, I highly suggest either getting some kind of aftermarket air cooler, or putting a waterblock on it and going the watercooling route. It *needs* better cooling to reach its full potential, but once you eliminate the heat throttling this card cranks.
