Pros: 5800X with steroids, the new 3D is incredible fast and consumes low wattage, it has the perfect balance for any demanding task while excels in gaming. Best of both worlds.
Cons: As opposed to my previous 5800X I can no longer boot to OC 4X8GB 3800CL14 fclk 1900, the sweet spot for my new X3D is 3666 13-13-13-13-33 fclk 1833 with better Dram voltage instead. it gained me lower timings which is also very nice.
Overall Review: Highly recommended! 5/5.
Not that fast
Pros: It causes some stuttering and my laptop got a little slower compared to my previous 1tb Hynix Gold P31 not to mention a bit hotter as well, I don't know if is due to larger 2tb capacity vs 1tb or the Hynix P31 newer 128-Layer Nand is that good, still not satisfied with this purchase as I'm using this 970 Plus 2tb as secondary storage instead and 1tb P31 Gold as primary OS
Cons: Only bought this for more capacity for primary OS use, it is slower and hotter than my previous M.2 1tb sadly.
Overall Review: it works good as secondary storage, not recommended for primary OS use.
Little powerful GPU
Pros: It's a RDNA2 based gpu, runs cool, power efficient and oc like a champ!
Overall Review: It plays quite good at 1440p res even though it is advertised for 1080p gaming, stays cool despite reaching very high oc clocks, this either a binned GPU or Asus has done an extremely good job.
Solid! Solid, great!
Pros: Paired with 5800X & 4x8GB 3666Mhz CL15= Soild, extreme performance!
Cons: First pciex1 slot is covered with my GPU I wish it had a dedicated Clear CMOS buttom, useful when fine tunning your pc
Overall Review: My 5800X arrived 2 weeks later, put it in and it booted up just fine of course the first thing I did was updating to lastest Bios from first boot, all went smoothly.
G.SKILL my trusted Memory Ram brand
Pros: Works as advertised 14-14-14-34, paired with 1800X and MSI X370 Pro Carbon as well, PC system very stable with 0 problems.
Cons: Expensive for a 2X8GB DDR4 kit but the highter speed and low CL is worth it, hope it last me forever.
Overall Review: G.SKILL never disappoints me, this is the 4th time doing business with them
Just beautiful card!
Pros: Love the light colors, first time using a card with backplate and Im glad, performance is great out of the box + Sapphire is a very reliable brand! 2x HDMI 2.0b 2x Displayport 1.4 Full 10-bit HEVC support VP9 support Direct x12 and Vulcan
Cons: It doesn't come with any adapters, just card in plastic bag, manual and CD drivers, that is it.
Overall Review: Paired this with i7 6700K and 16gb ddr4, it works great with Vegas pro 13, Edius pro 8, NewBlueFx Titler 4 pro, Hitfilm Ignite plugins, Corel videostudio X9.5 etc, Im using NEC 1200p IPS monitor Note: Do yourself a favor and throw your DVI cable in the trash and buy a good DisplayPort cable to use with this video card, trust me you will see a difference in performance, pages load way faster and smoother! this is a good one BYTECC DP-06K, or get another good brand it doesnt matter but dont use DVI
