EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, 08G-P4-6183-KR, 8GB GDDR5X, LED, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)

Pros: I very much appreciate the solid construction of this card... it is not a lightweight. This card is engineered well for thermals, with integral heat pipes and fins sitting beneath two high-quality fans. Like others have noted, the card is very quiet. My system uses a Kraken X41 cooler to cool my processor, and I have yet to hear the card's fans above the sound of my liquid cooler's fan and pump.

Cons: I have always run DirtyBomb at high video settings, and at a resolution of 2560x1600. I couldn't wait to put this card in to see if I could achieve 200 frames per second (fps), since my previous card (an AMD R9-290X) was delivering upwards of 150 fps. What I saw were numbers closer to 80-100 fps. I'm guessing that this is an issue with driver tuning/maturity, but time will tell as newer drivers are released.

Other Thoughts: I've never considered SLI before, but I'm wondering if I might see a significant fps boost by going that route. Maybe when the product availability for this card improves, and more optimized drivers become available, I will make a call on whether going that route would be worth it.

ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of I/O

Cons: Stability and reliability SUCKS.

Other Thoughts: I received my "repaired" motherboard today from Asus' repair center, and spent most of today installing it into my chassis and getting things working again after being without it for about a month. It worked fine for about one hour, and the SAME ISSUE HAS RETURNED. I am getting a consistent "Overclock Error" at boot and I AM NOT OVERCLOCKING.

This has been an extremely disappointing experience, as Asus had such a good reputation. My experience has been quite the opposite. I am requesting a NEW PRODUCTION MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT. I'm tired of being without my PC due to an issue that Asus cannot seem to address. I only wish I could get a refund for such a lousy product.
