Pros: Have 8 in a NAS Raid 6 for 10 months. Powered on 24/7/365. No problems to date. Perform data scrubbing and deep SMART tests every so often. No signs of impending death or failure or degradation. No issues at all. Fingers crossed they get past the 1 yr. mark without issues, and keep on going....
Cons: None at all.
Other Thoughts: Drives are quiet. Only hear them very slightly when spinning up after a reset for NAS firmware upgrades. Run relatively cool considering all 8 are closely side-by-side. Coolest 32C/90F, warmest 35C/95F... Not bad at all!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Powerful. Quiet. Lots of cabling options.
Cons: 2 rails for +12v. Wish it were one.
Other Thoughts: Low power rail failed after about 1-1/2 weeks use. Got vertical bars on one of the video cards, Would let things cool down. Restart, vertical bars, then 60 cycle hum.. like a failed filter cap. After a few more tries... nothing; machine would not boot.
Had a second p/s available. Hooked it up to the video card... problem went away.
Pulled cables from p/s powering card that failed to run. Found black coloring on the 3 12v pins.
Will have to return for warranty repair since it is out of Egg RMA time frame.
Pros: Easy installation.
Not excessively long or heavy.
Good price point.
2x 6-pin power.
2x Quiet fans.
Solid, sturdy build, no 'creaks' when flexing board.
Cons: Sitting here looking at it.... maybe the plastic shrouds over the fans is a bit flimsy, but no effect on performance... its plastic! Not really a con as far as the performance goes. I have no other 'complaints' if you could call that a complaint.
Other Thoughts: Built new rig and wanted an upper mid-level card that had enough streams and a reasonable clock speed to run BOINC math projects. This card does not disappoint. Running 100% loaded on math projects, and temp runs at 132F with fans set to 'Optimum' using H100i Corsair Link software.
Very efficient cooling system... when I set fan speed to 'Max' it increased the fan speed several hundred RPM, with only a 3 degree lowering of temps, so this tells me the basic cooling system is pretty near perfect for fully loaded processing.
I stopped by the Newegg site to buy another, and thought I'd add this review while I was here. Enjoy your card!
