Pros: Fastest SSD on the market with RAPID mode enabled.
Price to performance is...well...black magic.
Migration software is above and beyond amazing. I remember the days of fresh installs...*Shudder*
Cons: RAPID mode using RAM caching, 500mb of your data floating around in there most of the time, does your power randomly cut off a lot? (Why are you using the PC then..?). Well if you randomly suffer from PC cut offs, you could potentially lose that 500MB of Data if it doesn't flush to the SSD.
Other Thoughts: My benchmark on this SSD using Magician SSD Benchmark.
1045MB/s Sequential Read
871MB/s Sequential Write
52501 IOPs Random Read
63930 IOPs Random Write
Pros: -Moderately quiet.
-Aesthetically pleasing design
-Price tag at purchase ($214.99) was amazing
Cons: -None as of yet.
Other Thoughts: I honestly don't know if I just got a cherry picked card, but this thing is amazing. At 100% Load, it never wavered above a 55c temp at a 1100Mhz core clock with a 1575MHz mem clock. And that was with 65% fan speed, which was barely audible. Could it be possible? Perfect overclock, quiet, cool, and very cheap for the performance. We've got a winner here.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Noise is virtually non-existent at 60% and below fan speed. When cranked up higher you can hear a low droning but nothing too major with headphones.
Excellent over-clocking capability, I'm set to 1150MHz core and 1575Mhz Mem with no artifacting or stutter.
Keeps relatively cool with the right airflow and ambient temps.
Plenty of monitor hookups
Backplate prevents ugly sagging on the PCI-E.
Card is GORGEOUS, especially for a red/black themed PC like my own.
Cons: Large, very large. Medium sized cases might take issue with this, but a nice Full Chassis should be fine with it. Do your homework!
Had to unlock the voltage with Asus Smartdoctor before bumping the clocks up with Afterburner. Was greyed out in Afterburner but not with Smartdoctor, perhaps others should try this method?
Other Thoughts: Needs to come down in price now, if you're thinking about buying, WAIT. With the release of the 780, this baby should drop price considerably to compete. Still worth the purchase, just have a little patience.READ FULL REVIEW
