This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme, ZT-P10800B-10P, 8GB GDDR5X IceStorm Cooling, Metal Wraparound Carbon ExoArmor exterior, Dual-blade EKO Fan, Spectra Lighting, PowerBoost, FREEZE fan stop
Pros: Huge improvement to games I was playing. Went from a 780ti to this, and was suddenly playing 4k at max settings at almost always 60fps. Since I'm RMAing my card, and going back to my 780ti, the difference is an obvious downgrade. Will update once I get a satisfactory card, its really expensive to own a quick failing card.
Cons: Failed after a day. Spent over 4 hours diagnosing and verifying that it was the card, and not something else failing.
Firestorm is a joke. The version that ships with the card is missing a bunch of features or don't work right. Downloading the latest version of the zotac website causes my Panda AV to go crazy. Even after overriding Panda and running the program, You pretty much are limited in what you can do. You can't really change the voltage. They lock it down, but even then you can set a percentage, but as far as I could tell its either not returning the correct values values, or it doesn't work.
The profile of this card is XBOX HUGE, so make sure you have enough space in your case.
Other Thoughts: I would look at one of the other cards.
Make firestorm better, and for cards you are marketing as O/C able, you should really let the enthusiasts control voltage better.
Pros: Fast drive.
Cons: Expensive. Unreliable. Started failing at around the 6mo. mark. Now every other bootup is a disk consistency check followed by orphaned files being cleaned up.
Other Thoughts: Did a clean format, flashed to latest firmware for drive & mobo. "technical" support is just wasting my time. Tried to get me to flash my mobo to a pre-release bios firmware(F1, RTM is F4) and run in my 16x slot since that's all they tested it on. Probably won't buy from OCZ again.READ FULL REVIEW
