Easier than I thought
Pros: - Easy install, literally like putting in a new SATA drive (so you'd need a free SATA cable and a SATA power cable) - No drivers or programs necessary, however it does not come with a DVD/Bluray playback program. Highly recommend VLC, as it plays pretty much everything.
Overall Review: For the price, this works like a charm and it looks to be the fastest read/write speed too.
No Noise AT ALL!!!
Pros: - ULTRA quiet, you will not be disappointed
Cons: - NONE
Overall Review: Absolutely incredible how silent this thing is. I got this for my first gaming PC and I literally cannot hear a thing unless I'm super close to it. My friend, who has built 7 PCs, couldn't believe how silent it was either. I even tried playing some high-end PC games and it was still just as good. Also comes with it's OWN thermal paste (on the bottom of the fan), so I didn't even need to use the paste I bought.
Who Needs the Expensive i7 & i9 When this works just as Good?
Pros: - Incredible processor and very affordable. Computer takes 10 seconds to start up and it gets the job done.
Cons: - None whatsoever
Overall Review: Got this as a bundle with another motherboard for my first gaming PC, and the performance is stellar. Takes literally 10 seconds for my computer to start up. I'm fairly new to this PC business, so I couldn't tell you what the difference would be from, say, i5 and i9. What I do know is that I can do and play everything I ever wanted to do with this processor with no delay whatsoever. Don't skip this simply because there's other "better" cores which cost more. This gets the job done and then some!!!
Who needs 4K Gaming when you've got THIS?
Pros: - BEAUTIFUL 2K gaming with FPS 60+ consistent!! This thing can literally play anything. For an example: I've played Spyro: Reignited Trilogy and Final Fantasy 13 ( both very graphics-centered games) with this card in 2K, and it's like a dream.
Cons: - MAY not be ideal for 4K, 60FPS gaming, but like I said, 2K is more than enough and it could very well be my monitor.
Overall Review: This might sound obtuse, but hear me out: Running games at 2K, 60 FPS is MORE than enough when it comes to gaming graphics. I see so many people trying to invest hundreds of dollars just to get a graphics card to run 4K at a million FPS and I'm like "Are people just not satisfied?" I got this card for my first ever gaming PC and I am just FLOORED with how much I can push this thing with graphical fidelity. I can play any game on the market right now at 2K with a never lagging 60FPS (probably more honestly) and I've never been happier. I attempted to play 4K with it, however I encountered SOME screen tearing in areas (could just be the monitor I'm using) so I decided to play everything at 2K since then. As I said before, it's more than enough, especially if this is for your first PC. As someone who's played nothing but consoles his whole life, seeing this card's power left me speechless, and I'm more than satisfied.
FAST and AFFORDABLE!
Pros: - Ultra fast, I've had many things open at once with no slowdown.
Cons: - None!
Overall Review: Installed these babies on my new PC and I can run pretty much anything with no delay whatsoever. I've had YouTube in the background while playing games with no slowdown. Strongly recommend!
