5 out of 5 eggs this one takes top notch - compare it yourself! 03/07/2016

This review is from: Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80648I75820K Desktop Processor

Pros: does exactly what it says and more. You'll be amazed and surprised with 15Mb L3 Cache -

Cons: Haven't thought about it

Other Thoughts: So here's a question for you....do you spend the extra $200 and grab the I7-5930K which has 3.5GHz or do you get the I7-5820K with 3.3GHz? remember they both have L3 cache of 15MB's.. the rest of the spec's are primarily identical

Pros: nice looking - hopefully it reacts as it should according to the specs

Cons: 630......now that's large

Other Thoughts: 4 GB of memory in a grafix card that's why I choose it., Not to mention all the other high performance it has.
After over a year of working with the 6950 which has 2 GB of memory I really do not see the big difference in this 4 Gb card...I mean I thought I would see a little difference in video games set to full or not. Hear's the thing,630 dollars for a 4 GB card and I'm thinking if I would of been better off with any 3 Gb card especially since the arrival of the 4 GB the 3 GB went down significantly in price. I want to see or feel that 4 GB of memory at work, you just cant tell ....................................

Pros: extremely quiet fan when turned up thru CCC

Cons: on the whole,
if you can think of one by all means throw down your con cause I don't have one

Other Thoughts: Card holds around 42*c. for idle which I thought was a bit high for [doing nothing] turned it up to 80% and had to really listen for it.
290x replaced a sapphire 6950,--when you turn up the fan in that you can hear it starting from 60% and it gets louder and louder till max.
I did notice a sound quality difference in music, riffmaster & games.
Catalyst software added a GPU/power% box which can be changed in many ways...Only use drivers from web for this card and I'm pleased thus far...very expensive.
