Pros: My unit is silent, cool, and performs as reported in the benchmarks - but not as advertised (see cons).
At stock speeds, with target temperature set to 50c in CCC, I don't hear this thing at all, and it does in fact stick to 50c in demanding gaming sessions.
*Possible* strong DX12 performance - things are looking up, but only time will tell.
Cons: AMD stated this card was "an overclocker's dream." They lied through their teeth. The thing to this day, nearly 3 months after launch, has no easily obtainable software voltage control - and even if you make it work (W1zzard at Techpowerup) the gains are pathetic.
My card will begin artifacting in most games with a 10% OC to the core and HBAM. It's quite simply unacceptable in a landscape where OC'ng is all but a given on high-level enthusiast cards, and the manufacturer is advertising it as being capable of such.
AMD also showed many benchmarks that were proven to be false by the 3rd party reviewers in the days after launch. This card very rarely beats a 980TI at anything, especially at 1080P/1440P, where it should be a monster.
Powercolor's boxing in particular is extremely sparse, and has the least accessories included of any video card I've ever purchased. This didn't hinder me any, but it's still disappointing to see they can't be bothered to include things like a short HDMI cable, vga-to-dvi adapters, etc as I've seen other companies do in the past.
In hindsight, I absolutely would've bought a 980TI instead, it's just a better deal all around. The lies by AMD regarding performance and overclocking capability embittered me quite a bit, and it may be enough to keep me from using their hardware in any future upgrades again.
Other Thoughts: For an enthusiast level card, and given AMD's massive hype-train goading prior to launch, this card needs to do more than simply "work" to get five stars.
It's a nice, strong card with quiet, powerful liquid cooling that will keep the dust out of a clean tower. But it's lacking and overpriced compared to the competition.
Pros: Got it at a great price, it comes with plenty of what you'd want (extra modular 8-pin PCI-E for running dual card or beast card setups), it's given me no issues whatsoever since installation and is now serving its second rig. It has nice long cables even for HUGE bottom-mount cases like mine (Rosewill Thor V2).
Cons: None, honestly. It wasn't free? When you have a solid PSU that handles everything you throw at it, there's no room for complaints.
Other Thoughts: I should've written this a long time ago, but I also enjoy seeing reviews from other users who've used a product for multiple years and still have it going strong - as I have this. Definitely planning on buying Corsair when I someday need a beefier PSU.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NEW Black PC Wireless Controller Gaming Receiver For XBOX 360
Pros: It works, no issues or hiccups once installed.
Fast shipping from this seller, at least for me.
Cons: Not plug and play, as everyone else will tell you. If you're the kind of person shopping around for this instead of going to Wally World or Best Buy and throwing out $40 or whatever they want, you shouldn't have much of a problem getting the drivers working for this.
Other Thoughts: If you want great gamepad play for your pc, this is the way to go! Very happy I grabbed it, breathed new life into my emulators and steam.READ FULL REVIEW
