Pros: A powerful card, games never looked better.
Cons: This $480 card died on me after less than 6 months of use. The GPU burnt out (as it seems to do for many owners) leaving a basic vga port that'll boot into Safe Made but the Nvidia drivers kill it every time.
I personally know two other owners (purchased theirs based on my initial recommendation) one had it die like mine, the other burnt out completely. Almost five hundred dollars for a season of gaming?
Other Thoughts: Because I travel for work and my primary rig stays home it had passed the warranty (of course) when I discovered too late the problem.
nVidia makes some good cards/products, just not this one in my opinion. Or my friends opinions. Or many others who've bought this card assuming it was of similar quality to EVGA's other products.
Pros: - Well built
- Stable (passed Memtest86 w/o issue)
Cons: - High-profile...this is not a "con" per se, but beware - make sure your heatsink has room for these tall babies.
Other Thoughts: For those in a big hurry to toss their DDR2 (hoping for a huge performance increase) be aware that ram is merely part of the equation...
...fast memory does not a fast computer make.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: - Beautiful, no question
- Vertical profile is narrow enough for most mobos, allowing room for ram (w/heatsinks) and installation
- the fan IS powerful and mostly silent (until high, but who cares)
Cons: - will NOT effectively cool AMD AM2+ - AM3 chips, unless that CPU is naturally cool already (Phenom/Athlons are for squeezing performance - this cooler can't keep up)
- Hey Zalman, how much do I have to spend to get a 4-pin power connection (that I might use my mobo - instead of some gimmicky knob - to control fan speeds)?
- Idles @ 32°...but even a little bit of push and we're @ 41°-45°
- AM3 "clip" is pretty flimsy
- Even CM's 212 out-cools this delicate flower (with merely a pull-fan) AND gives you a 4-pin for $15 less
Other Thoughts: Look, you want something that looks nice and is affordable, this might be for you...but if you're using an older generation AMD and are even thinking about OCing I advise that you skip this one.READ FULL REVIEW
