Pros: bang for the buck, super quiet
Cons: 12% factory overclock? No, it crashes constantly at that setting, I have to lower clocks back to stock, and add 0.1 volts to the v core in order to use this card.
Anything more that than and I get constant driver crashes, and even a blue screen.
Furthermore, Furmark will run all day at the 12% overclock, and my score is the EXACT same as if i run stock clock speeds....
So long story short, Video card makers need to stop overclocking these cards in order to sell them, stability has to be maintained, no one likes a crashing machine.
If you insist on setting the VBIOS to a 12% overclock, please make a utility that allows you to correct the VBIOS to a stable setting.. Having to really on a program to run in the background to get a stable card, is annoying.. not only that these programs will sometimes set the card back to stock, and your gaming session will end abruptly.
Other Thoughts: I think my Cons list covers it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, very low power consumption. high single thread performance.
Cons: not good for heavy multi threading (knew that when purchasing it
Other Thoughts: if I were to do it all over again, would have went with Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz
a little more expensive, but basically an I7 for 230 bucks.
This review is from: ENERMAX Noisetaker EG475P-VE-SFMA 470W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Clean power, This is my 3rd enermax, I have another 330 W that is 8 years old and it still runs perfect.
This 470W is the best power supply I have owned, I am actually going to run a 6870 on it when i get the money for an upgrade.. Enermax Power Supplies are good investments.
Cons: None, unless you dont like quiet, reliable, clean power.READ FULL REVIEW
