Pros: Stable, runs perfectly fine on my Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 motherboard at 1600, which is all you'll get until AM3+ processors are out. Then I'll check it at specs (see "Other Thoughts.")

Cons: None at this time.

Overall Review: I usually ignore reviews from people who complain that a product doesn't work properly when they don't know what they're talking about, but this time I felt I needed to respond. For the person who said this memory doesn't work at 1866 on his/her Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard, let me tell you it never will until AMD releases their AM3+ processors, which won't be out until September/October. Currently AM3 processors run at 1333, and anything over that is considered an overclock. So getting 1600 with this ram using your AM3 processor is exactly all you're going to get. My suggestion is try tighter timings like 7-8-7 to see if this will run.

Very nice single slot card12/18/2007 11:38:12 PM

Pros: I really like the single slot this card provides. I haven't had an issue with heat and I am running 2 in SLI-mode. My idle is under 60C for both card. It doesn't get higher than 80C if I up the fan speed to 50% in nTune and start playing graphic intensive games like Bioshock and COD4. I don't have Crysis yet, so I can't state how it plays with this card.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: My 3DMark06 scores seem a bit low (around 11,000) but I've found out it's because I'm still running a 939 system. Once AM2+ starts becoming more of the standard, I'll be switching over. I am running this in a Lian Li PC-201 case, so this helps with the cooling of the 8800GT's, I'm sure.

Fast and Quiet1/24/2007 12:12:50 PM

Pros: Noticably faster than my 7800GS, at least from my viewpoint. 3DMark05 and 06 scores with this card were 8719 and 3983. On the 7800GS they were 5879 and 3240. This on a AMD 754 system with a 3700+ processor. I used the ATI drivers from the CD, which were version 6.12. The fan is extremely quiet. Only a passive cooling device could be quieter. A nice improvement over the fairly loud 7800GS.

Cons: Nothing about the quality of the card. With this being such a new card, the device driver is probably not where it should be. I'm sure with future drivers, performance will improve some more.

Overall Review: I am using an Antec TPII-550w power supply (with dual +12v rails of 18A each) and have had no problems running anything. FEAR, Doom3, etc play like they should but with more eye candy. This is in a Lian Li V1200 case, so heat isn't a problem for me.

This is not the case shown in the picture!2/19/2004 7:31:36 PM

Comments: Received my case today and while the color is that shown in the picture (Beige w/Blue), the side panel does NOT have the 2 fan holes. There is now a hole on top of the case for a fan. The thing that made it worse is that there are only 4 hidden 3.5" bays for a total of 6, NOT 7, 3.5" bays.

Stable & quiet. What more could you want.1/8/2004 3:51:24 PM

Comments: I was looking for something that would be able to run my system with 6 hard drives, 4 CD-ROM drives, and an ATI 9800 Pro without intermittent problems. I definitely found it with this power supply. The +3.3v, +5v and +12v rails are always stable and well within specs. It is extremely quite, as well. The SATA connectors are a plus, too. If you're wary of paying the price for an Antec, this is a great (less expensive) substitute.
