Most Favorable Review

Great Card, Solid performer

XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity

Pros: Worked straight out of the box. Registration with XFX is very easy, Double Lifetime Warranty. Able to OC to 850/1200 on stock voltage Able to get Vantage score of P18177 with a GPU score of 16746. Card runs nice and cool at 40% Fan Speed. Great performance on all the games i've thrown at it at 1920 X 1200.

Cons: Fan at 100% speed is LOUD. Auto Fan still a bit underperforming

Overall Review: Using MSI Afterburner, setting your own custom Auto Fan speed is a great improvement to the Auto Fan default from ATI's CCC. To the person who was ripping XFX regarding the OC limit, its not XFX setting the OC limiter, its AMD/ATI limiting the OC safety. Use AMD's ATI OC tool or MSI's Afterburner and you can surpass the 775/1125 limit by ATI's drivers.

Great Full Tower Case

ABS Aplus ABS-Black Pearl Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1st thing i thought of when I opened the box was WOW, Lots of room. The solid Aluminum build is sleek and professional. Good inverted ATX mounting for good airflow. Space to install 8 Hard Drives, fits a 120mm tower air cooler (must remove the CPU Cooler vent & reverse the 120mm fan as by default it is an intake fan) Great wire management support, Very Professional style. Includes motherboard mount screwdriver, small touch but great addition

Cons: 5.25" Drivebay installation was a bit of a pain, the slide down installation was confusing, instruction manual didn't help a lot. Hard Drive racks are a bit far from the case, requires longer SATA cables than the standard ones provided by MB Manufacturers.

Overall Review: Would have liked to see possibly a 24pin power extender as the routing of the cables may be an issue for those with short PSU cables. Wish they had more than 1 precut hole from the PSU bay to the HD bay that you basically thread everything through to get to the rest of the computer.

Pros: Good Budget board, supports both SLI and Crossfire Runs stable with an i7 920 OC'ed to 3.6

Cons: Runs a bit hot, a little quirky sometimes

Overall Review: To the person below who complained about not getting a Crossfire bridge, AMD/ATI provide crossfire bridges with their Video Cards, Nvidia's bridge is supplied with their respective Motherboards. Hence why Asus included an SLI bridge and not a Crossfire Bridge.
