Pros: Size, or lack thereof-yet still a top tier graphics card.
Power plug is on the end of card, not the top.
Cons: Bought it before the prices were dropped.
Other Thoughts: This should be the go to card for most people who want high end gaming power without the "gaming enthusiast" level of financial commitment. At the new prices, this is the absolute best bang for the buck at the high end level.
As of the writing of this review, the only other gaming ITX graphics card is the GTX 960, which may cost half as much but it has a third of the performance.
I have seen review that claim the card has a capacitor whine and overheats. I have yet to experience either of these issues even when I put the computer next to my heater.
This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-064G-A46
Pros: When using USB 3.0 and a high end SSD, I can get copy rates of 170MB/s, as advertised. Gets mid 20s MB/s on USB 2.0 and HDD.
Cons: none so far.
Other Thoughts: It is faster to use this to transfer files between computers on my home network, than my wireless network. Ideal if you want to download a game off Steam and then copy to other computers or transfer a large amount of files to a media server. The plastic housing is much better than most other flash drives, but not as good as memory sticks that have the rubber enclosure (ex. Patriot XT).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought the first one, was really happy, when it was a daily deal/w rebate/holiday-5% off I got a second one for crossfire. GPU scaling has gotten better over time, some of the more modern games will get near perfect scaling. My 3D Mark score in crossfire is higher than the high end gamming PC score that is listed (intel 4770k with single Titan) and my whole system was only 20% more than the price of a single Titan.
Cons: Some developers are behind when it comes to multi-gpu support and not every game engine scales well even when there is a crossfire profile for it. The only reason I wont knock an egg for this is because you can turn crossfire off at any time and a single card is more than enough to play any current game on high or ultra settings.
Other Thoughts: The second card, while exactly the same make/model/manufacturer was built differently. while some things are better (there is a better fan/heatpipe setup in the newer card and it is quieter) the newer card operating at a higher voltage. the difference in voltage meant even the slightest overclock would make the computer crash. The was able to be corrected by putting the newer card in the PRIMARY graphics card spot. Also, regardless of what you think is the right PCIe slot, double check your manual-having the second card stuck in PCIe 2.0 4x mode WILL slow you down needlessly.READ FULL REVIEW
