Pros: Love the card and the look. Going to be water cooling it and the look almost makes me want to not (almost). So far it holds Tomb Raider, FF14 ARR and ESO at 60 FPS no problem with Eyefinity. To test I took off the block to go over 60 FPS on FF14 ARR and benchmarked it, this is what I got...
Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
241271, 3303031, 42, 136, 73.045
..and that's running triple monitor Eyefinity at 5888x1080
..not bad. Also the card never broke 71c. A nice step up from my HD 7970 that always ran at 80c and couldn't hit that FPS. As far as my card, I don't hear it at all. In fact, I hear my rear exhaust fan the most and the definitely is no coil noise.
Cons: None as of yet. Hopefully there will not be any
Other Thoughts: When you take it out of the package and hold it in your hand you will say to yourself "YEEEESS!! POWER!"
Almost twice the thickness of my HD 7970 I took out.
When I first installed the card, my motherboard (Gigabyte G1 Assassin 2) would not even post, nothing would turn on except for my computer fans. I naturally thought the card was DOA. Then when I put my old card back in, my computer came on with a motherboard error saying my motherboard BIOS is corrupted. After playing with it for awhile I decided to flash the motherboard with the latest updates. After flashing and reinstalling the new card my computer came on no prob.
Also then had to format my computer because the flash then corrupted my boot partition. Many hours later I was up and running great.
None of this is any reason to take off an egg rating because it was neither the card or computers fault, just motherboard needed to be updated. Just wanted to add that story in incase someone else runs into the same issue.
Hope all of this helps
This review is from: IN WIN Dragon Rider Black 1.0 - 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Completely amazing case! Looks even better when you actually get it (as I've heard). Fans are NOT loud, it is all what is to be expected when you have that many fans runnings and a large side one.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
