Pros: Very, very fast. Set XMP in UEFI, set voltage to 1.35 and was up and running on my MSI Gaming M7 motherboard in minutes.
Cons: It doesn't cook breakfast.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you are running the newest bios for your board and MAKE SURE your board is on G.Skill's QVL.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I knew NVME was fast based on the videos I watched about it. I just didn't realize how much difference it would make using this as my boot drive. This thing is 3 to 4 times faster than my triple SSD raid array in my old system. IF you have a motherboard that supports NVME you should get one now.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G
Pros: This thing is a complete beast. I went from a GTX 570 to this and the difference is huge. Suddenly I can run Watch Dogs maxed out, same with Skyrim (I know, it is old but I have a LOT of add-ons that make it demanding). I have not noticed any coil whine, just amazing speed.
Gigabyte P55 UD5
Core i5 750 @ 3.6Ghz
8 GB ram @ 1833
Cons: Not really a con but having this much video card has made me realize I need a new motherboard and processor. 5 Years is too long to wait for an upgrade.
Other Thoughts: As others have said, this is a heavy card. I made a small support for the end of the card from a small hard plastic tube that I painted black to match my case.READ FULL REVIEW
