Other Thoughts: - So, I've owned this card for about 6 months now (whenever launch was..) and it has served me Extremely well. I run most of my games at 9600x1800 across 3x1080p monitors using VSR (Virtual Super Resolution) and most games can run at this resolution with Everything Turned Up to 11... In the rare case where I have to lower the resolution, a vertical resolution of 1440 or 1080 can get you back quite a bit of performance.
I however REALLY like to run games at the aforementioned 1800p; even if only on a TV or single monitor. There simply IS NO ALIASING at this resolution... and that's on a 1080p monitor.
I am currently enjoying crushing the absolute dog xxxx out of Star Wars Battlefront. The game looks Increadible with an aspect ratio of 48:9 and everything Maxed out at 9600x1800. It is like Daaayum. Witcher 3, runs and looks increadible as well. In fact, you'd be Hard Pressed to find a game or scenario where this card Didn't Excel.
If you are on the fence, BUY THIS CARD. Noise is not a factor and the speed is Phenomenal!

500Gb Samsung Evo SSD via Sata 6Gbs
This MSI Radeon 390X w/8Gb DDR5 @1115/1642Mhz +22 power limit
Card will clock higher with more juice, but this is an almost negligible bump for daily use. Either way, this card tears through games and if you're playing at Higher Resolutions where memory bandwidth is going to have a major impact... this card is the IT with an SH for the $$
and that's just as far as I've gone. I still haven't "maxed" these out even at 1.5v..

Other Thoughts: The sticks contribute to Very Good Performance (still) from my aging AMD platform; which is a very nice to see indeed. I am Extremely stoked for Zen!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC BT-300 USB 2.0 to IDE / SATA Adapter
Pros: Works great with 2.5 ide and sata hdd's.
Works great with 3.5 ide hdd's.
Cons: WILL BURN A 3.5 SATA HDD UP!!! THE DRIVE WILL NOT WORK AFTER THIS HAPPENS.
Other Thoughts: I think maybe it's giving too little or too much electricity via the sata connector bc it definitely will cook a 3.5 sata drive a lot of the time. Better to just connect a drive of that type to an internal connection; better safe than sorry with no data :(
Update: after frying one too many 3.5 hdd's with this guy, I have changed my review to one egg. This type of data destroying device should have never left the factory. I'm sorry if you buy this and have this happen to you.
Shame on you Bytecc. You guys should have recalled these or at least stop selling them. I'll never buy another of your products and I'll make sure this is as well known about as possible.
