Pros: Its an RTX quadro 4000, it's a great card
Cons: Runs very hot even at idle.
At the time I purchased this the listing said it was a retail card. After talking with PNY support, the confirmed it is actually and OEM card and not intended for sale to consumers and thus does not carry a warranty from them.
Overall Review: Is an RTX Quadro 4000 but is NOT a retail card.
Pros: White cabling was nice for my white build
The ports can be unscrewed from the slot so they could be molded into a low profile one if needed, or elsewhere in your system (though the cables are not very long)
Overall Review: Works great and I am happy with the purchase
Pros: Works as advertised
The internal usb 2.0 is a nice touch
No external drivers nessicary (on windows 10 driver install was automatic)
Cons: The type E connector being perpendicular to the pcb causes interface with available slots below the card so I was unable to put it in the bottom slot on my board, but I was aware of that when I purchased.
The red on the usb 2.0 port may lead people to believe it is a 3.2 port.
Overall Review: Currently the only pcie card with a type E connector on the market (May 2021). If that's what you're looking for, this is it.
Pros: Hot swap bay on the top.
There is an external 3.5"bay
Plenty of room for cable management.
Cons: The only options for radiators are either a 120x240 on the top or a 120x120 on either the top or back.
Front panel does NOT mount well, often it shifts to the side just enough to hold the power button down and force my PC to shut down, very frustrating.
The drive mounts are so close to the side panel they are putting a lot of downward pressure on the data/power cables (this may be able to be solved with some right angle connectors.)
Overall Review: It has some cool options but is NOT worth the$130. If I had kept the packaging I would have returned it.
I had high hopes for this case but unfortunately this will be collecting dust in the corner once I get a new case.
I definitely do not recommend this product.
