Solid Card1/28/2015 3:24:14 PM

Pros: Nicely packaged, FTW+, I like the looks of the card. Installation was a breeze, this card replaced my 670 FTW+. Computer booted, installed new drivers and immediately, pushed the core and mem clocks up a little bit and ran Firestrike. My best score with my 670 was 6235. New score with this beast is 10550 with a very conservative overclock. For those who say its not worth upgrading from a 670 are wrong. Im impressed, will be buying another for SLI. Also. no coil whine like people say the 970's are famous for, but I am running a Corsair HX750 power supply. Card runs Far Cry 4 at 5960x1080 surround maxed out at 45fps, over 70 fps at 1080p. With my GTX 670 I would get about 35fps at 1080p.

Cons: Fan can be a little loud while pushing the card hard, but it doesnt bother me, under full load and overclock, card runs 60 degrees and around 75% fan usage to stay cool.

Overall Review: My system: Intel 3770K at 4.7GHz EVGA GTX 970 FTW+ 8GB Gskill Sniper DDR3 Asus Z77 Sabertooth Corsair HX 750 Kingston HyperX 128GB SSD 600GB WD Velociraptor

Wouldnt buy11/10/2013 7:14:19 PM

Pros: Quality unit, except the throttle quadrant.

Cons: The elevator axis isnt smooth. Its jumpy making any accurate sim hard to play, especially landing.

Overall Review: I would pass on this, find something else higher quality. The elevator axis makes this thing unusable and annoying.

Awesome board11/10/2013 7:09:52 PM

Pros: Looks awesome, overclock a 3700k well, handles heat well, reliable, and very stable. Overclocking couldnt be easier. Wouldnt hesitate to buy another

Cons: Kind of a pain to install all the plastic pieces but it makes for a neater appearance and you only have to do it once.

Pros: Fast base speed, extremely stable, handles the little heat it makes well, overclocks like a dream with the right board

They work3/9/2013 3:03:59 PM

Pros: Nice return to center, easy setup. Good to use to refresh our skills on shooting approaches and what not.

Cons: Must be wearing shoes to use, and we don't wear shoes inside our house soo. Difficult to keep steady on carpeted floor. Not really the products fault though, these are realistic pedals, very similiar to a real cessna, just without feedback obviously.

Overall Review: Im a commercial pilot.

Worth it3/9/2013 3:00:49 PM

Pros: Very efficient cooling, high quality for what you pay. Works great

Cons: A little tricky to install, particularly if you were using this as an upgrade instead of going with it from the get go on a new build. Motherboard must be removed with most cases.

Overall Review: This thing is quite big. Make sure you've got room for it.

Nice, Could be a little better but for the price.....10/27/2008 4:25:59 PM

Pros: No sharp edges, easily removable cages, nice fan's (with blue LED's) mostly sturdy construction, runs cool, PSU is pretty good quality...

Cons: Front side door is a little flimsy, yet its fine with no extra pressure. Fans were a Pain is the *** to install (yet to get the fan control to work properly) yet once completed, its a nice addition.....

Nice board for the price10/27/2008 4:22:44 PM

Pros: Booted, came alive! overclockable(read the con's though) dual PCI-Express x16 2.0 slots (SLI-ready) and a nice layout.

Cons: Not the most overclocking friendly board, once I figured it all out though I was able to get my Q6600 to 3.0 Ghz per core and its completely stable, not one crash yet.

Overall Review: Recieved a 4 star becuase of the non-overclocking friendly BIOS yet it runs nice now. I like the board, came with fan for heatsink (optional though) and the board ran everything without a hitch.

Very Nice10/23/2008 9:53:09 AM

Pros: I love this card, I came a long way from an old PNY 6200 PCI based card(that sucked) but this baby blows the top off of just about anything you throw at it. I love it. I also like the low profile card( as in it only takes up on slot on my mobo so it doesnt cover other important PCI slots. I like that it comes OC'ed too, but you can push it farther. I also got my card on 10-20-2008 and the card was only 135, I see now that its 140 with no free shipping, but O'well, what's five bucks anyways?? Can't wait to SLI these babies......just another 140 dolla's later

Cons: The shipping on it was a bit belated but nothing to gripe over (:... This card gets a little hot but if you cool it properly its no problemo.

Overall Review: Apevia MX-Pleasure Full ATX Case Asus Nforce 750i ATX motherboard EVGA 9800 GT Superclocked Intel Core 2 Duo Quad Core Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz (for now...hehe) 2 Gigabytes DDR2 1066 RAM 350 Gig HD @ 7200 RPM She Purrs lol
