Pros: Great being USB 3.0 dock for 2 drives at the same time. Transfer speed was to spec and no disconnections so far!
The 1 click harddrive cloning works well as well! Everything working as described.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: Coming from owning a cheap USB 3.0 dock (for almost a year) with constant disconnections, I finally decided to buy one that has good reviews and "not so cheap". It turned out to be a great buy!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The only graphics intensive game I've tried is FFXIV ARR and it runs smooth with max setting at 1440p. It doesn't top 60hz all the time since the title is on dx9 engine but it's smooth enough to not feel much lag at all.
Finally a card without coil whine!
Temperature maxes out around 70 degrees under load, which is great in my book.
Cons: I'm having issues using display 1.2 during boot with this card, it simply doesn't boot into windows at all for some reason. It may be also related to my motherboard (asus rampage iii gene) however I didn't have this issue with an 290x.
Another note is again on display port. Upon idling and having windows turning screen off. Once I come back and the display comes back, all my windows were resized to really low resolution. Again, never had this issue with 290x.
note: I'm on windows 8.1
Other Thoughts: Overall great card!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It runs fast and even on the default uber mode, the fan isn't that loud as what the reviews indicated... to me at least.
Cons: Runs hot, random BSOD.
Other Thoughts: Ended up RMA it because of the random BSOD issue I was encountering.
I've tried everything including different driver versions to reinstalling windows fresh, BSOD would still happen.
The most barebone setup I've done was windows + chrome + firefox + catalyst driver + league of legends. And it would still random blue screen. Everything was running solid stable with the exactly setup and drivers but on my old 5850. So I can't think of anything else but the 290x being the cause.
