Pros: - Cas Latency 9
Cons: - $134.99 (2014 prices haha)
Other Thoughts: Installed in a QNAP TS-670 NAS.
Works without issues, QNAP TS-670 system is able to detect correct timings and speed. Not sure if it's setting the voltage to 1.5v or 1.35V.
It's been running great since 4/6/2014, today is 3/19/2016, so almost 2 years of non-stop 24/7 operation!
Pros: - Very quiet
- Only requires 1 x 6-pin PCIe connector
- High clocks
- Quality Samsung GDDR5
- Heatsink and fan cool the core very well
Cons: - Mediocre performance at 1080p
Other Thoughts: Physically the video card is great, no issues with ASUS design. It boosts nicely to 1241MHz with a little bit of overclocking. Card barely hits 64C even when overclock, RAM can hit 6750MHz easily.
I tested mostly with Starcraft 2 HOTS which is not very demanding. The PC has an i5 3570 CPU and 8GB of RAM. SC2 performance was mediocre at 1080p. Frames/sec dropped all the way down to 1fps when the game was running with many units on the map. I can't imagine it will do much better with the newer DX11 FPS type games.
I would invest a little more money for a GTX 660/670.
Pros: - Overclocks to 2400MHz 11-12-12-31-1T @ 1.52V on 4770K
- Low voltage
- v5.29 is Hynix MFR
Cons: - High price $189.99
- Useless heatspreader
Other Thoughts: First thing I did after overclocking was to remove the heat-spreaders. Now the RAM is normal height and does not block the heatsink fan airflow. The heat-spreaders are just cheap metal punch outs stuck on there with some foam tape. 933MHz to 1200MHz is a almost a 30% gain in frequency while staying ~1.5v, very decent overclock. Check the package if you can v5.xx are Hynix MFR which are supposedly a bit better for overclocking at high frequencies.READ FULL REVIEW
