Pros: Can hit 2000Mhz if vDIMM set to 1.68 and QPIvtt set to 1.38.
Cons: Will not boot to windows past 2000MHz period--Under any setting or voltage. I even tried 2002 MHz and relaxing the timings to 9-9-9-30 and blue screens of death abound. Is not stable at 2000MHz unless vDIMM@1.70 and QPIvtt@1.40. Tried this with four different i7 920's (two of which are D0 stepping) and two different x58 boards.
Other Thoughts: RMA in the works. We'll see if set two fairs any better.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The best low profile card on the market. Runs Oblivion and is playable on Medium settings with No AA or AF.
Cons: Runs Hot.
Other Thoughts: I bought "EVERCOOL EC-VC-RF Ever Lubricate VGA Cooler" and installed on this card. (I had to cut and splice the wires-leaving the feeback [yellow] wire unconnected, as well as retain the clips from the original aluminum heatsink). It was a tight fit and presses firmly up against my motherboards adjacent PCI slot. (HP pavillion slimline s3400t) I can now overclock core frequencies at 625 and memory at 504 runs stable and never gets above 76c with 10-15% framerate improvement.READ FULL REVIEW
