Monster of a card, destroys everything!
Pros: This card is a CHUN! I love the LCD Screen and the performance of this card. It obliterates everything I throw at it, in 1080P Mind you because I don't have 1440P monitors. The card is very quiet, compared to my old 980 TI I wasn't sure if it was actually working. It's just got excellent cooling with the 3 fans and heat slot exhaust. 60 FPS Cyberpunk MAX, RTX MAX. 60 FPS Horizon Zero Dawn 60 FPS No Man's Sky DLSS I hear so much negativity about RGB Fusion but it is working okay for me at the moment.
Cons: It took way too long for me to be able to actually get this card, over two whole years. I am unsure if 859 is MSRP or not, could have been a tad cheaper. Not impressed with the RGB effects available in RGB Fusion. iCUE has way better effects.
Overall Review: I definitely recommend this GPU to anyone who is desperate for a card. If you have the money and the Strix is available below 900 USD, I would go with that mainly for the iCUE RGB effects. The card itself is MASSIVE, make sure you have room before you buy it. RGB Fusion is working so far. The only way it disappoints me is with the RGB effects.
Gorgeous but too big for my Mobo/Case/Liquid Cooler combo :(
Pros: -Fast! -Very gorgeous RGB which can be controlled via iCUE!
Cons: -Way too tall. I have clearance issues with this on my Z490-E Motherboard, with my Fractal Design Meshify S2 and my H115i Cooler. I cannot fit the cooler on top of the case so i Have it side mounted. But the tubes are in the way of the RAM and are close to my GPU. When I get my RTX 3080 it will force me to move the Radiator up top. But due to how tall this ram is...I am forced to not use it because it won't close on top. I could cry, I love it so much!
Overall Review: I would definitely check your clearance before buying this. It almost brings me to tears to know I can't use it.
Terrible Radiator Support
Pros: Sleek and beautiful Nice design
Cons: I cannot mount my 280MM Corsair H115i Radiator on top because it sits on the RAM. I ordered lower profile RAM and it STILL doesn't fit. I have to front mount my RAD and due to the tubes being in the way I have to use my bottom PCIE Slot. I need to know specifically what Radiator and RAM combo I can have wit this case. Funny that it says up to 480MM top RAD when it sits on the RAM.
Overall Review: If you're gonna get this case for RAD cooling I might think twice. Fractal Design if you see this please help me out here.
Fantastic Chair! Except the Gas lift died :(
Pros: Comfortable Adjustable
Cons: The gas lifter died and now my chair is too low, My hand is at a high angle from the arm rest to the top of my table so my palm gets slightly irritated/numb from the awkward position. Also one of the wheels broke and fell apart so I have an uneven chair. 3/5 due to the gas lifter dying and wheel breaking.
Overall Review: This chair is amazing, I would get it if you can. Homall if you're seeing this, I'd like to inquire about a new gaslift/riser for my chair and wheel please. It's the only things wrong with it right now.
