Pros: Purchased two of these cards for SLI gaming rig. Performance is flawless on any game title I've played, including the included Batman: Arkham Origins for Steam. Framerate never dipped below 57.0 FPS @1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz. Both cards in a crowded case run considerably cooler than the two EVGA GTX-580 non-overclocked units they replaced. 97 degrees F @ idle, 117 degrees F under heavy load. Highly recommended from a happy customer!
Cons: None whatsoever
Other Thoughts: For a reference card, the price was not an issue.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I liked the availability of 4 USB 3.0 ports, and their orientation, as well as the 15-pin SATA power connector
Cons: The card does not fit properly in a standard backplane slot. The connectors are unusable unless the divider between the backplane slots is cut to fit. Two computers with this device installed failed to boot when the 15-pin power connector was plugged in, as if the machine detected a short to ground. without the 15-pin connector installed, both machine powered up and recognized the card.

Pros: This mobo is a beast! It assembled perfectly, everything worked on the first try, the system is quiet, and very responsive. Does MPEG-4 Xvid encoding faster than real-time. It also has substantial upgradeability, Lots of RAM support, good selection of PCI-Express, PCI, and SATA/SAS. With the addition of a 64 GB SSD as the boot drive, even windows Vista is very responsive.
Cons: A prior reviewer stated that the board is slow to boot. By disabling some of the optional BIOS features, such as the LSI BIOS, and SATA RAID BIOS, it substantially improves time from post. The time to post from power up is admittedly slow, but windows at least still takes longer to finish the startup sequence, at least on my system.READ FULL REVIEW
