Pros: Silent. Fans are so quiet I keep them on 100% all the time.
Cool. Idles at 25c and hasn't exceeded 55c through the multiple games I've played.
Performance. Every game I've thrown at it is steady 60 FPS with every option ticked. Movie quality.
Cons: Not enough to lose an egg but I wish MSI made some more color neutral cards. The front LED is only red, and the cover on the back of the fan is red. It's personal preference, but didn't change my decision to buy it since this card comes with 100mhz of faster RAM than the competition.
Other Thoughts: Should have bought 2.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: no huge ass heat sinks. ok I know maybe you need them for some serious overclocking but I just have 4 of these babies running at 1600mhz with no problems for over 2 years. they're great ram, low timing, and very reliable.
Cons: I had 2 of these for ages and finally got 2 more selected 3 day shipping and it took over a week.. slowest shipping I've ever received from Newegg and not usually something that happens. not knocking the product just complaining about FedEx.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I tested while kind of under load (downloading some games and surfing the web) using Windows 10 and the drive still got 175MB/s on the read, very quick hdd, it's a fast as my 2 year old Kingston ssd, very, very impressed. I haven't bought a new hdd in a very long time and I am not disappointed.
Cons: I was just going to load up windows 7 and be right back in the game. the research I did and from my understanding on Windows 7 and mbr it would have no problem installing on and utilizing the full capacity of the drive. however, I was mistaken. windows 7 only used 2tb of the 3tb drive, and after digging mbr only partitions up to 2tb, anything bigger than that has to used gpt partition format. si after all that getting the drive formatted correctly windows 7 would not uefi boot off my thumb drive and would not install on my newly correctly partitioned 3tb wd black, so after hours I gave up and just upgraded and installed windows 10. after that everything went perfectly smooth like hitter and my computer is faster and more uto date than it has been in months.
Other Thoughts: after nearly a full day of troubleshooting windows 7, I learned it's just time to install Windows 10 to get this drive up and running in a short period of time.
and if you're upgrading to Windows 10 you must first do it with your 7 install on a different drive, then fresh install of 10 on your bigger drive and voila 10 is activated.
