It works, but rattles.
Pros: Its a slight upgrade from my 2070 Super. Huge upgrade on paper, but in actual use the performance is roughly 50-70% better for 2X the power draw. Ran just fine on my Supernova 850G3.
Cons: Hot and Loud. Fans rattle. I may be returning this. It either sounds like a rattling hair dryer or it cooks up to 85C then starts getting loud and rattling. This heatsink/fan setup is seriously disappointing. It seems like ASUS would have fixed this issue by now, since it has been reported since 2021. It also put my UPS into Overcurrent warning mode. I have run 2 systems off the UPS in the past. r5 5900x+ 2070 super and OC 2700x + rx580 without issue. This GPU sucks more power by itself than a whole other system. Raytracing performance is also quite weak compared to the reviews, unless you want to drop to DLSS performance and deal with all teh aliasing and artifacts.
Overall Review: I cannot recommend this product unless you want mediochre raytracing and dont mind still using DLSS and huge amounts of electricity.
lasted about 20 days before RMA
Pros: -card has RGB LED. -chip had a 63.1 asic score.
Cons: ok, on to the disappointment. - The card ran hot, really hot. -The fans were pretty much silent, but they also never spun up past about 35%. I think this caused the above issue -After about 15 days the fans started clicking the whole time they were running. -The memory would not overclock. I do not know if these were just low binned chips or what. -The chip had a 63.1 asic score This is good and bad depending on how you want to cool if overclocking.
Overall Review: This card has been replaced by an XFX GTR Black Edition. I have not looked back since replacing the card. Sapphire used to be known for quality, I trusted the brand, and that is why I bought this card. The card was disappointing from the time I plugged it in to the time I returned it.
Pros: These quickly became my favorite headphones. I can wear them for hours without discomfort. Sound is perfect for me, I really enjoy the sound of these cans.
Cons: Cord is a bit shorter than I would like.
Overall Review: I have recommended these headphones to multiple people, these are great. I have not had any issues with any type of music. I have very eclectic taste so I will not take the time to put the types of music here. These have never failed to disappoint unless plugged into a bad source.
Pros: Good power supply. Cables work fine even when the connectors are stressed. Have not had one serious issue. Would recommend.
Cons: The 24pin is long. This is a good thing most of the time, but I had to stash in in a mini ITX case. Slight PITA. The 6+2 pin connectors are a bit irritating when trying to connect them in tight areas.
Overall Review: Purchased on 4/18/2015 for mini ITX build in Xigmatek Eris. PC has been on 99% of the time since then. Fan has started clicking when the PSU gets warm, no power issues and the PSU has not faltered once. I will be replacing this unit as the fan is driving me crazy and I will have to have another unit to use while dealing with the RMA process.
DO NOT BUY
Pros: Soft ear cups
Cons: -Terrible articulation on ear cups, unless your head is square, they will not seal. -Bass and treble are scooped out. Only mids exist. Sounds like a cheap lo-fi speaker
Overall Review: This is possibly the worst sounding pair of headphones that I have tried. Do not waste your money at any price.
