Pros: Fast performance, good price when on sale.
Cons: My card came with a model# of V222 which is a 570 core on a 470 PCB and 470 cooler, from what the internet forums are saying. This results in a MUCH louder fan than what's on the reference 570.
Did I mention LOUD FAN!?!
Other Thoughts: Not a reference 570 design.
V801 in the model # I believe is a reference design, which is in the overclocked version of this card (N570GTX-M2D12D5/OC). But reading those reviews, I'm not sure you're any better off due to artifacting.
Cons: REALLY expensive for 60GB?
Other Thoughts: price mistake?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: fast, lifetime warranty
Other Thoughts: In regards to the JEDEC comment by the manufacturer, what they are saying is that because of the standard, it has to be set to 800mhz by default.
This memory WILL work at 1066mhz at 2.1v, but has to be manually set in your motherboard's BIOS, typically because of the extra 0.3v needed above DDR2 spec (1.8v).
This is very common and in the case you've read other reviews saying that ONE out of the TWO sticks is bad, it's typically due to the extra voltage needed to boot with both sticks.
To fix this, install one module, boot into BIOS, manually adjust your timings and voltage to manufacturer's spec. Turn your computer off, then put in the second stick. It's not because your memory is bad, it's because these types of memory require above the spec 1.8v voltage.
