Pros: It's a GTX 680, runs everything smoothly and quite. The SLI setup achieved P17900+ on 3DMark11. But this is really Nvidia's pro, no credit given to Gigabyte.
Cons: no video cable, no SLI cable, included some power cable but won't fit, had to use the ones come with power supply.
no manual. seriously? not even a manual?
driver DVD cannot be read. I bought 2 for SLI and guess what, neither DVD can be read.
Gigabyte's overclocking software does not support this model as of today.
and...did you notice that this thing is actually more expensive than the other GTX680?
Other Thoughts: should have waited for EVGA or ASUS to show up. Nothing really worth to return, just the whole package looks so cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
Pros: I bought it because of that video review on the product's webpage--every time I watch it I cannot stop laughing how big it is. Now it's sitting on my ASUS rampage IV, and motherboard looks like a mini-ATX. It's really the cutest thing in my rig and just by looking at it makes my happy.
and of course, it works great, cools my 3930k @ 4.8G with no problem. at this condition it does run at full speed but still quite--comparing to PSU's crazy fan.
installation is easy on LGA2011
Cons: heavy? not sure if it will stress the motherboard structure after long time use.
and to those people who want to buy this: a quick google research will tell you this fan will NOT work with those memory with mohican style heat spreader.
Pros: overclocked to 2133-9-10-10-21, stable through all benchmark software and games.
small, fit with my giant CPU fan (to whichever company makes this larger-than-my-head fan: you should officially thank SAMSUNG).
pricing is realistic. other 2133-9 rated DDR3 RAM with "princess-style dressing" could cost you more than 100$.
Cons: not an eye candy for sure.
