Pros: AMAZING, OC'd like a dream (Using Koolance WB) DX11 is so great.
Cons: With the stock cooler it did run hot, about 85 degrees load, however a little bit of AS 5 and it went down 12 degrees under load with the stock cooler. So the stock TIM is terrible. Fan is loud above 70%
Overall Review: Buy this card
Not worth your Time
Pros: Unbelievably easy to flash the BIOS, so easy that an infant could do it. That's it
Cons: The motherboard arrived with a defective SATA controller, so no drives for me. Returned it for a refund. Not buying GigaByte again.
Overall Review: To be fair its only a 50$ mobo and you get what you pay for... but I can see how it would be a great board if it worked. (2 eggs because flashing the BIOS was easier than making toast.)
Pros: 1066 operating speed, cas latency is low. Solid RAM. was running 4GBs of this RAM.
Cons: Ram got burnt out in a power surge(not the RAM's fault) from a lightning storm. Bought 8 more GBs of these monsters. Also on my evga mobo I had to manually set the frequency to 1066, although that may be a peculiarity of the Motherboard or bios.
Overall Review: Bought the new RAM less than 30 mins after I found out the old ones burnt out. Thats how confident I am that these are a good buy.
