Pros: + Run very nicely + Stays pretty cool + Higher clock than EVGA GTX770s + Amazing Heat Exhaust from the design (You know the fans are doing what they need to do) + No one seems to have bought a PNY GTX 770
Cons: None for me - Some people would complain about the noise fans make to keep this card running cool, which if anyone knows it is better to have more noise, than your card overheating.
Overall Review: Purchased 3 PNY Geforce GTX 770 after having a PNY Geforce GTX 650, and I can say it was worth the 1k to upgrade. Took me awhile to figure out what I wanted, I was torn between 3 GTX 760s or 2 GTX 780s so I compromised with the middle. Either way each decision poses its pros and cons. Another good thing about this card, other than the Titan designed card, the base clock and the boost clock were higher than EVGA's 770 with the same design. My Rig: MSI Z77a-G45 Thunderbolt Intel Core I7-3770 4 x 8GB = 32GB Kingston HyperX Black at 1600mhz 3 x 2GB PNY Geforce GTX 770s 1500w Enermax MaxRevo PSU
Amazing Heatsink and Fan
Pros: - Cool (Both eyecandy and temperature) - Quiet - Covers a lot of CPU surface area - Option of 2 fans in push-pull configuration
Cons: **None** - Some would complain about the size but if they complain about it then why did they even decide to buy? Dimensions are listed...
Overall Review: This is "almost" just as good as watercooling for a Core i7-4790k processor. Might still get a little hotter if you are running above 4.0 Ghz...but it will keep the processor below the operating temp. This is setup up in a push-pull configuration in my Cooler Master 935 half stacker two piece mod tower. Sepecs: GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-Gaming G1 Intel Core i7-4790k @ 4.0 GHz 4 x 8 GB Kingston HyperX black series @1600 mhz 3 x PNY Nvidia Geforce GTX 770 @ 11-- mhz 2 x Kinston 120 GB SSD 1500w Enermax MaxRevo PSU
Pros: -Recognized right away by MoBo -Cheap price for 16gb (2x8gb) *Got mine on sale for $80*
Cons: -Little pricey @ $103
Overall Review: Running on -MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel z77 MoBo -Intel Core i7 3770 ivy 1155 3.4Ghz (3.9 OC) -Kingston HyperX Black 16Gb (2x8GB) -Xion AXP 700W PSU If your looking for a lot of memory that is reliable and is fast, Kingston HyperX is where to go. I originally wanted G. Skill 4x8GB, realized that it had a rating of 4 eggs, and compared it to other kinds and I decided to go with Kingston HyperX rated 5/5, so I knew it was worth it.
