Pros: Great CPU, does everything and more that I ask of it. Gaming video editing, photo shop, streaming, its all good. Has headroom to O.C. if you need more power!
Cons: Stock fan sucks, used it for 2 days. Sounded like a jet engine, and temps where really high. Went for a all in one WC. Soo boss now!
Overall Review: The chip can run at a high temperature and still be in the safe zone, but wouldn't recommend using the stock fan. I would spend a little extra to keep your CPU cooler, on a aftermarket cooler.
Gots da Power!
Pros: Quiet, cool, has plenty of power, cables for days!
Cons: none thus far!
Overall Review: I didn't think my rig needed this much power, but I'm so glad i went with it. Trusted company, runs my machine with ease, have 4 HDs, 2 all in one water coolers, a huge GPU and fans. Super efficient, I thought my power bill would rise using my computer 10+ hours a day and it didn't! I still have plenty of power to add other components if needed! pretty velvet case if that matters!
Pros: Quiet, fast, runs cool (at load gaming for 10+ hours highest it got was 65c) card is possible to flash to a R9 290x! 70+ FPS at any game I've thrown at it, New/Old!
Cons: I've had the card 5 months, nothing to state here.
Overall Review: Used to have a 7950 xfx ran like a jet engine, had to custom water cool it to make it usable. This card I was contemplating on doing the same, but I have no need to. It runs quiet and fast and low heat. Such a boss card, and I got it at a killer deal! I've dabbled a little in the O.C department with Asus GPU tweak its very easy. Due to this awesome card a nice 1080p monitor isn't enough. I have 2 1080p Dell monitors hooked up to it and its soo awesome. But I recently just purchased a new 1440p monitor to unlock this cards full potential! For a good mid-high end card, this is the one! I love it!
