This review is from: Team F108 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Golden) Model TG016GF108N3
Pros: It's a flash drive. Got it for free with my processor. Gets the job done.
Cons: Looks a little gaudy. Would have rather had just a solid black or silver. Doesn't seem to maintain true USB 3.0 speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I received this card on 09/28/2012. It blasted through anything I could throw at it at absolute maximum settings. It also ran my dual display setup without issues.
Cons: My card is dying. It started showing artifacts a few days ago. I have single pixel sized dots all over my screen whether I'm gaming or even just browsing the web. I have tested all other components and done all of the reseating, resetting, and reinstalling that I can stand. It is definitely the graphics card. I am incredibly disappointed that it is having issues when I barely tax the device and have it in the coolest possible setup imaginable. I have never overclocked it, and am running it in an Antec Eleven Hundred with every fan slot filled.
I decided on this exact model after extensive research, but it seems like the issues hadn't set in for people at that time, because when I research it now, I am definitely not alone with the problems.
I am going to start the RMA process, but I would really like Gigabyte to allow me to pay the difference to upgrade to a better GTX 680 based card. I went with them, because they are supposed to be a premium manufacturer that can be trusted, and I am really hoping they come through on the customer service end of things. I have no problem paying for a better card and would just like the option. This card has been having issues for quite a few people.
Pros: Faster than most people would ever need.
Cons: Overclock performance is a bit disappointing. I overclocked it just for the sake of overclocking. This is with the biggest air cooling you can get. Phanteks PH-TC14PE and Antec Eleven Hundred with every fan slot loaded.
I bought the unlocked version, just because it wasn't that much more than a locked one, but there isn't really much to be gained by overclocking.
