GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 4GB G1 GAMING OC EDITION

1 out of 5 eggs Vram issues 02/05/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 4GB G1 GAMING OC EDITION

Pros: -fast
-quiet
-cool
-good looking

Cons: As everyone knows these cards have issues with the vram, they are not delivering what was promised. Many people paid a lot of money and got a faulty product in return, myself included. I got this for the 4gb of ram and got 3.5 at a lower speed than it should run. Now I'm not saying it isn't a powerful card, I'm just saying I could have gotten a card that worked with the same money.

If that doesn't bother you, great, get this card. If it does, don't and either wait for a hardware fix or save up for a better card.

Personally I think GIGABYTE should refund everyone straight up for the mistake, take ownership of the issue. They are a great company and I expect them to honor their customers and their promises to them.

ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: When it works it works well.

Cons: It doesn't like to work well. It randomly hard freezes at and random work load. At first I thought it was a HDD problem, then a graphics driver problem, then a RAM problem. However no matter what I did nothing worked. The BIOS doesn't work for me now which is what made me finally realize that this motherboard is broken. Do not get this board, I realize now that tons of other people have the same problem with this board. ASRock is a good company, but this board does not live up to any sort of good standard. I emailed their tech support about it and hopefully I can get an RMA going.

Other Thoughts: It has a lot of USB ports...

Pros: When it is working it is fantastic, cheap and easy to install. BIOS is well organised and easy to navigate.

Cons: It doesn't seem to like working for extended periods of time. At first I thought my computer freezes were a memory or video problem but after returning some parts and running more and more diagnostics I came to the conclusion that it must be the motherboard. The system will just freeze randomly, independent of work load or temperature of the components. I cannot find a solution to the problem anywhere.
