Pros: -Card performed well
-Good fan design with low noise
Cons: -Didn't work right away!
-Died after 2 years for no reason
-Gigabyte sh*fted me on rebate
-Terrible customer service and employees
Other Thoughts: I bought this card off newegg. It with a 30 dollar rebate. So I went through all the rebate cr*p and sent it in. Then I get an email from Gigabye two months later saying "you did not enclose the sales reciept, so you get no refund." I am 100% sure that enclosed the reciept I remember printing it off newegg, folding it up and putting it in the envelope perfectly. So I call Gigabyte about it, the rudest f ing indian a hole picks up the phone, basically his greeting was like "what the f do you want" in his tone of voice... so i give him all these stupid g** d*** tracking numbers and whatever before he says "Oh, theres nothing I can do, our rebates are handled by an outside agency on a contract basis". Then I ask him why the rebate paperwork was not returned to me if you are going to try and sh*ft me over 30 dollars , and he's just like, "I dont know, theres nothing I can do". I tell him "you can do your f ing job moron, an then hang up on him.
So about the card, when I first put it in my computer, it wouldn't boot. I am a computer tech and I know what I am doing and how to install cards. Then after an hour, magically it booted. It was weird. I did not do anything significant to make it suddenly work.
Since then I've been really happy with the card it ran all my games at 1080p fluidly, very good performance. Until yesterday when it just died for no reason. My computer was idle when suddenly it rebooted. "windows was not shut down correctly". Next time I turned it on, frozen desktop (frozen computer). Then it would not even boot after that just a looping reset, and I could tell it was the video card immediately.
Now I have to deal with gigabyte again for the RMA and I am not looking forward to it I am still really p'd off at their customer service. I just called them and had the same experience with some indian a hole maybe even the same guy, does not even try to be friendly or pleasant or helpful. Just terrible service with bad employees that need to be fired for their attitudes, get it together Gigabyte... I won't buy another product from you, and I am buying computer parts all the time, so screw you.
This review is from: TOPOWER TP-6208BB Black SGCC Metal ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Theres a ton of space to work in here. Case feels pretty solid. Nice cooling fan in back and quiet. I got it for like 20 bucks...
Cons: The case is huge, seriously. You can't really tell from the pictures. Its really long depth wise. I did not like the fact you cannot screw down one side of the optical drive and it instead has the bent metal supposed to hold it in there. Oh well I guess I can always drill it. Motherboard standoffs are the bent metal kind and are kind of sketchy did not want to short the case so I covered them with tape. I have noticed most all cases are being made this way now with the standoffs and only one side optical drive screws. Still was not hard to open other side of case at all and beats the hell out of my lame gateway case. Another problem is with the pci slot screws they are located under a metal bar making you screw them in sideways and maybe eventually stripping the holes... maybe will drill that too.
Other Thoughts: The two screw in standoffs are for micro atx boards, seriously people do not put standoffs into the raised metal standoffs already there and wreck your computer and make yourself really angry... or do... whatever.
Your'e going to need tools, to cut thru the metal especially.
I liked the fact there was a vent at the top of the case. Does not seem to be any heat coming out of it now tho with the case fan running and components not as hot as they used to be. Overall I would say this is one of the best coooling cases around just be prepared to sacrifice some floor space.
Pros: Probably the best a75 mb you can get. Solidly constructed & fast.
No problems installing drivers.
Supports XP,7, and 8.
Other Thoughts: Recommend. I am very impressed with the speed and power of my pc now.READ FULL REVIEW
