Pros: Great design, with cable management and air flow in mind when created. Includes extra cover for MB area that further adds cable management and air flow, to allow for concentrated air over the proc and RAM. Also, this conveniently separates the PCI slots from adding to the CPU heat, but still allows air flow for PCI as well.
Cons: Only comes with 4 shielded SATA cables, but they are cut to length for each length of drive bay. Strange they only include 4 considering there are 10 total bays for 3.5in HDDs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent monitor, with a perfect price point. It's above the cheap stuff, but not the cutting edge / graphic design price point.
Swivel, tilt, rotate, height, adjustments with easy clip on/off locking mechanism.
Cons: Not 4k.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Any game, max graphics, and it still won't stress this card.
-47fps Solid on FurMark for 30 minutes. (In case you need a reference point, most of the GTX 680 stock numbers were around 45-46fps)
-TwinFrozr heatsink would be perfect for SLI builds as well.
-256bit DDR5, 1344 CUDA Cores
Cons: -(The 1 star reduction was for this) The card I received has a warped PCB, could be due to the massive heavy heat sink, but it feels like it might have been just a warped PCB as well. This has not affected performance to my knowledge, but I will report back if it does.
-While it is nice the card comes OC'd, you really can't push it much more than it already is at, making the Afterburner software unnecessary really, and myself a little disappointed.
Other Thoughts: -As has been mentioned in other reviews as well as this one, the card sags to the heat sink side which if you have a tight case could cause you some issues with the neighboring expansion slots. One solution to this in my case was the support/divider that was provided with my Cooler Master HAF-X case for supporting multiple high end cards. Once this device was in place it forced this graphics card to straighten out and is supporting its weight so the strain is not on the PCI slot.
-Another thought is with as warped as mine was, and without the support arm, the pins of the PCI-E x16 slot nearest the south bridge were almost not touching on the top. This could potentially cause an issue, I did not test though.
-I can't remember which Newegg account I bought this from, so if it doesn't show "Verified Owner" my apologies.
