Pros: Tons of features and overclocking options, looks amazing, led accent lighting is cool, on board audio is so good I don't need my xfi card
Cons: Lots of unnecessary software
Other Thoughts: Board has been running flawless for 8 months with a 6600k at 4.7 ghz on a prolimatech megahalems heatsink. Also running an evga gtx 970 ssc acx 2.0 and 2x4 gb corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 C16 ram. XMP works fine as long as you manually set voltage. The most impressive thing is I'm running all this with a very old corsair HX520 watt power supply, which is about 9 years old. I've got 1 ssd and 1 7200 rpm drive and lots of fans in my nzxt phantomREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet, Cool running, was cheaper than similar performance cards, good performance per dollar while it lasted, good looking sticker
Cons: Died after 4 months of use.
Other Thoughts: Used for light gaming and mostly web browsing, card died after 4 months of use. Computer worked fine one day and shut it down, next day went to turn it on and wouldn't even show a signal. The fan wouldn't even power on. In the process of figuring out why my computer wouldn't boot i ruined my windows install to the point of not being able to boot into it no matter what i do. Had to install windows on a different HDD.
I have already been notified by the 99 hour RMA that they no longer stock this model and they never made anything above the 660 Ti, GTX 670, GTX 680, so i may be stuck with an inferior card, waiting on answer from higher chain of command.
I have never had an enthusiast grade card or above die in over 10 years of building custom computers in this short of a time without overheating, which it never got above 65C. I have owned tons and tons of video cards from Nvidia 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000, 9000 series to GTX 200, 400, 500, 600 series and AMD/ATI - 600,700,800, 9600, 9800, 1600, 1800, 1900, 4000, 5000 series with multiple models of each, and never had a card die this fast.
Do yourself a favor and stick with better brands; you get what you pay for sometimes.
Pros: Good amount of RAM for Windows 7, good price tag, arrived and performed error free at stock speed/timings as tested on memtest 86+ v4.20
Other Thoughts: i bought this to upgrade my DELL Inspiron 14R (N4110). It came stock with a single 4 GB stick of RAM and i wanted a new dual channel kit. I checked the stock RAM speeds/timings and matched it up and sorted by lowest price and this kit came up as one of the best deals with plenty of good reviews so i purchased it and am enjoying the increased RAM. The stock 4 GB was falling short for everyday usage on Windows 7 64 bit. I always noticed i was running out of free memory in resource monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
