Pros: Fast. Easy install/setup
Overall Review: This is a big card. It's loud, but it does what it says on the box. I really don't care about the noise, I like performance. Too many poor reviews based on noise alone - really, get a grip folks. This card is fast, it benchmarks well and in terms of frame rates is right up there with the 2070. I was always an Nvidia fan, but after getting the R9 390 and seeing the performance vs price difference, am firmly in the red corner for a while.
I did not have any issues with drivers or setup, though I did undervolt it as many recommend. I don't play a lot of games, but I do use an oculus rift. Arma 3 on ultra is kicking out 240+ fps. Xplane 11 is around 30fps due to the OpenGL platform, but it works well enough that it's not choppy, and has decent level of world objects and HDR.
All my other VR titles are smooth as can be on max settings.
It runs around 65C under Max load in my system, I did notice that my system fans are working harder to expel more heat, but that's as designed so no complaints so far.
Will update if there is any changes.
i7 6700k @ 4.4ghz
Asus ROG hero 8 main board.
Pros: Worked. Briefly.
Cons: Arrived all beaten to hell, came from west coast so cheaper to repair than to send back.
GFX card died.
System died last week.
barely 2 years old.
Overall Review: I'm sure the PC would have been fine, but the shipper beat the absolute poop out of it. Living on the east coast, shipping back to the west coast would have cost more than it did to repair myself.
Can't say whether that prematurely ended it's existence or not, but <2 years is pretty poor.
Pros: It has keys.
Cons: Cheap tat, poorly packaged and damaged in transit. Definitely NOT a mechanical board and definitely not worth the price tag. I wouldn't give you $5 for a board of this quality, let alone almost $60.
Ships from China.
Overall Review: Save yourself the money, and the trouble.
