Pros: 1. Inexpensive for a RTX 2060 model
2. Comes overclocked for an out-of-the box performance boost
3. Fans are excellent - great cooling (65 C max at 80% fan speed) & low noise (compared to my MSI Gaming X 1660 Ti or EVGA 2080 Super, both dual fan)
4. Metal backplate for rigidity and a quality feel
5. (Subjective) super "clean" black finish with a minute lighting highlight on the side
6. (Subjective) nice packaging adds to premium feel
Cons: 1. With about two weeks of use under my belt with this card, I've experienced one random instance of flickering while using Chrome
2. Because of the pre overclock, there isn't much OC "headroom"
3. Similarly, VRAM can't be OC'd too high (around 450 Hz boost on my card is all Icould manage without artifacts)
4. (Subjective) ketchup and mustard colored fan cables slightly visible coming out of fan motors
Overall Review: Overall, this card has very few cons. I highly recommend it for smaller builds, gaming/creative work on a relative budget, or those looking for a clean blackout theme.
Overall Review: Carries my pc like a middle school running back whos that tallest on the team will keep posted
Overall Review: I got this to replace an ASUS Phoenix GTX 1060 3gb and I am not feeling let down. Not only does this run cooler, but I went from playing on medium setting to high or better on the games that I currently play. Installation was simple and getting the software drivers seems to have went off without a hitch. Only thing close to a con I have found with it is that the accent light is a little bright, would be nice if there was a way to make it a little dimmer.
Pros: smooth gameplay and can run on very high settings!
Cons: can get a little hot, but it run awesome!
Overall Review: pc build:
ryzen 5 2600x
asrock b450m steel legend
corsair vengeance LPX 2x8gb
evga 600watts 80 gold non modular
Antec DF600 FLUX
Pros: Beautifully fast.
Installation was a breeze, even where space is tight.
Cons: None yet.
Overall Review: Bought this one after returning a Gigabyte 1660 that did not want to behave. I was trying to avoid buying a new power supply, which this card would have required, but I bit the bullet and bought a power supply and this card and I'm so happy I did. This thing installed easily in my Dell XPS8700 case. It was a bit of a tight fit, but it has ample space around it for airflow. The software also installed in a snap and the ability to monitor all the paramaters and control the fans is easily as good as any aftermarket monitoring software. I don't care much for all the RGB lighting stuff, but this one is not at all distracting (although I have a solid case, so it only shows through the ventilation holes). Even running the new Flight Simulator, it rarely gets hot enough to kick the fans up to a noticeable level. And on older games like Assassin's Creed and Witcher 3, it runs everything in ultra resolution with not so much as a hiccup. Super smooth. Super fast.
Overall Review: I would recommend this for a mid-tier gaming PC. Make sure you have adequate cooling - it runs hot.
Pros: Great rgb pink and blue led strip in the front works great with my pink and blue color scheme and very quit until you you go into msi afterburner and turn it up to 80. Very sleek and minimal design and.
Cons: You sadly cant change the led strip in the front from pink and blue to another color which doesnt hurt me in any way honestly that's the only con
Overall Review: 1000/10 can't get any better best 2060 out there by far
Pros: Nice size - not too big
Runs relatively cool and quiet
Cons: Thicker than you may think
Rgb is a bit of a joke but I was fine with it
Overall Review: I should have paid attention to the thickness of this card as it required me to replace my case. My fractal Nano case didn’t have enough space for it. Other than that I love this card. No loss of an egg because I should have checked the size for my mini itx build.
