Pros: Fast, Cool design
Cons: AMD Catalyst Control Center not the best with cooling the card with no custom fan curve. Downloaded MSI Afterbuner to make custom fun curves.
Overall Review: PRICE!!! bought this yesterday for $750 and today it's $620...... My friends get it a couple weeks ago for $550. come on newegg i come to you for good prices.
Pros: Fast and clear gaming
Cons: After 6 mouth of light use it screams when a game is played even minecraft makes it yell.
Overall Review: first repair: Gigabyte told me there was a broken part and fixed it. But did not fix it at all. and i took a month to fix out of the expected 2 weeks Second repair same day i got it back: Beyond there repair and was going to give me a new one but where back ordered for 2-8 weeks. the offered a full refund so bye bye gigabyte. They also have bad service when it come to repairs my card come back after the first repair with rust and hair stuck on and in the fans
High performance and stays nice and cool
Pros: - Easy to install - Max temp 45c in VR for several hours and most games at 35c - Idles at 25c
Cons: - Stock radiator fan made some pulsing sounds at random times.
Overall Review: - I recommend getting a different static pressure fan for the radiator. i did and my problem went away. Runs quiet and cool i hardly hear it.
Pros: This is a fast high power motherboard. Bios interface easy to use
Cons: Software that comes with motherboard is NOT WINDOWS 8 READY. But with a few changes to the software code overclock software will work. (Only recommended for high tech coders to overclock)
Overall Review: Great motherboard and easy safe overclocking FOR WINDOWS 7 Not recommend for windows 8 unless you plan to not overclock.
