Turn on the air conditioner!7/22/2020 11:44:21 AM

Pros: This 8gb card kicks posterior during the most intense games. It has an interface that actually works very well and allows the most control one could expect.

Cons: This 8gb card produces a LOT of heat. It max's the temp gauge out at 86 Celsius with every game I have tried. After dropping the voltage and frequency down to less than 50%, it still pegs the temp gauge at 86 Celsius (186 Fahrenheit).

Overall Review: I have dropped the voltage and frequencies down to less than 50% (with no noticeable performance issues), to try and bring the temps down, with no luck. The immense amount of heat coming from this card actually has raised my water-cooled CPU temps about 5 Celsius as well. There is no fix for this issue except to remove the side from my 100% brand new machine and put a fan blowing on it. After adding more fans, and creating the best airflow design possible, I am now investigating building a water cooling unit for this video card, but the costs will far outweigh just purchasing a different card that doesn't have KNOWN ISSUES such as this.

Great everything!5/23/2020 8:04:35 AM

Pros: I did an immense amount of research before buying. Based on what I discovered, this board was definitely on my list of many, but became the choice for my brand new build. Absolutely perfect from the very first boot. This mobo is a monster that does exactly what it was designed to do.

Cons: No cons whatsoever!

Overall Review: From the info I gleaned thru reviews, I was able to determine most likely, if a person is using older/slower hardware, this board will not help you very much. This mobo is designed more towards integration with latest video cards, memory, and solid state drives, and it worked like a charm for my all new build. Also, Newegg has really fast order-to-door time, much faster than any of it's competitors! Definitely worth it's price, and more so with a new build!
