Pros: Cheap, $60 plus I used to a $25 giftcard for a grand total of $35 out of pocket for this bad boy.
Cords are all sleeved in a see through mesh that holds up well
Fan stays quiet even while I was pulling close to the maximum capacity under load (480w)
Cons: Too many Molex connectors and not enough ATA connectors for my 5 drives; nothing that a few adapters didn't fix.
Cords are slightly too short for proper wiring in my case but isn't a big deal for me since my Fractal R4 doesn't have a window on it.
Other Thoughts: It could be me, but it feels like their is a significant delay between when the power is pressed to when the UEFI boots that varies.
it seems anywhere from 3-5 seconds
Also for any new builders out there, know that 80 Bronze means that 80% of the 630w is all you're going to get under full load which is actually 504w so plan accordingly.
This review is from: G.Skill 32GB microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter (FF-TSDG32GA-C10)
Pros: Survived multiple phones, reformatting, and even a dip into a lake for 10 minutes and still going strong.
SD Card Adapter works well and is my primary way of transferring music for over 18 months with no problems
Cons: Absolutely None
Other Thoughts: Seriously, it's $20 and a Class 10 card that's good for using in DSLR cameras; why are you still reading this and not buying it?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Fantastic price to performance ratio that you come to expect from Radeon products
* Able to push 1100/1400 playing FFXIV for 7 hours straight without ever getting above 60C or dipping below 55fps
* Fans were quieter than my previous PowerColor 6950
* Sleeping Dogs with high rez pack on max(sans extreme AA ofcourse) never dipped below 65fps on stock settings versus old card only able to manage 45-
*FarCry 3 actually playable now with 1100/1400 OC managing 50-55 fps the whole time on max settings.
Cons: * Runs hot. Without my PC door open and without 150mm house fan blowing in my case, Sapphire Trixx recorded 92C!
* After about 20 min in playing FFXIV I started getting really bad artifacts which made me worry about having to RMA it. Luckly after re-installing drivers and opening my PC door like I mentioned above; It has yet to break 60C
Other Thoughts: My case fans are the primary reason why this card ran so hot, but my previous card was able to run in this scenario overclocked for 18 months without a single issue, so for that alone I have docked an egg.
$200 after MIR is a steal for this card and made even better by the fact that I sold my old carx on top of that for $140 :D
