G.SKILL 64GB microSDXC Flash Card Model FF-TSDXC64GN-U1

2 out of 5 eggs Doesnt Work? 07/22/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL 64GB microSDXC Flash Card Model FF-TSDXC64GN-U1

Pros: Good amount of storage for the price.

Cons: Doesnt work? I plugged this into my LG G3 and it doesnt detect there is an SD Card plugged in at all. I first thought it was my phone, then I tried it in my brothers Galaxy S4 and it did the same thing, I have a 16 GB Sandisk that works inside of the LG G3 as well. When I first plugged it in it detected it for a while, then said it was unreadable. Though after a while of tinkering with it, it quit altogether.

Other Thoughts: I love G.Skill products and I use them for the most of my storage and RAM needs, but this is sort of upsetting. I hope they make things right.

SAPPHIRE 100363TXSR Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: I love the design of the card, it looks amazing in a windowed case. The power of the card was what I expected, It is a complete monster for what I paid. I have not received any coil whine, like some reviewers have.

Cons: This is where I am disappointed, the card at stock clocks got all the way up to 83 Celsius while the fan speeds are running at around 80%. From what I read in the comments I expected so much better. Sapphire has a great reputation from myself with cooling. My HD7950 ran games with 40 to 20 frames less but stayed at a cool 63 Celsius, not to mention while staying very quiet. I don't know why my card runs so hot, everyone else seems to have their fans at 30%-50% and getting under 70.

Other Thoughts: To achieve a decent temperature, and I mean around 70 Celsius. I under clocked using TrixX to a whole whopping 1000 MHz and 1400 on the memory speed. With the fans running around 70% under load, I am not pleased with how this card has run so far. I will probably wait a few more days and update my review, seeing if it will break in, but from the looks of it, it doesn't seem possible.

Pros: Very powerful card that is the best in its class and is still priced appropriately. The card just looks awesome, the LED sapphire logo is very cool in a windowed case.

Cons: My card is running extremely hot, at least compared to the other people who have reviewed this product. I'm starting to think my card might be faulty, and see what I can do if I RMA. Currently I can play Metro Last Light on High settings, and it runs like a dream. Though the temps are just WAY to high for my taste. reached a peak of 83 Celsius, where my HD 7950 also ran Metro but at 63 Celsius max. I don't understand why this card is running so hot, its very bothersome, I can't play 5 minutes without getting out to check my temps and giving the card a break. Not to mention it runs pretty loud, with these temps I have TrixX running the fan speeds at 80% while playing.

Other Thoughts: My airflow is certainly not the problem I just upgraded to a Corsair 750D, and I noticed maybe 5 Celsius of a difference on my old card which ran quiet, cool, and fast.
