4 out of 5 eggs Why did Newegg just raise the price $90 and then give a $10 off coupon??? 01/28/2016

This review is from: NVIDIA® SHIELD™ - 4K Streaming. Advanced Gaming. Android TV.

Pros: best streaming box out there

Cons: But why did newegg raise the price this afternoon by $90 ????

ASUS GeForce GTX 980 GOLD20TH-GTX980-P-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support 20th Anniversary Gold Edition Video Card

Pros: Day 1. Little tough to get installed, working on a bug with my motherboard and this GPU. But This is one powerful, quiet and energy efficient card. A quick Overclock to 1538 Mhz and only went to 50 C (122 F) Very quiet card using precision x to control overclock and fan speed. Is a very heavy card and somewhat concerned on it's pull on the Pci-e slot. Comes with a great pair of individually sleeved 8 pin power cords. Wish it actually had some more lighting on it. The white leds showing power is good is a nice touch. Coming from a GTX 690 and am very happy.

Cons: Comes with a pretty old driver on the cd show used driver uninstaller to remove all old traces and downloaded the newest drivers from NVidia. Am not using asus gpu-tweak, prefer Evga's Precision X.

Other Thoughts: You can set the fan speed to run at 0% The next speed up is 35% which is also silent, I prefer that as my slowest speed to to keep some airflow. Using a custom fan profile my speed only got to 61% at 1538 MHz at 50 C and the overclock held rock steady there without throttling.

Will update with some more time with card.

Pros: good price on the card, cool and quiet. but............

Cons: Will not run for more than a couple minutes, blank screen then right to BSOD. Have tried 3 drivers all same result. Will only run for a few minutes, web pages, youtube videos and mp4 files on xbmc trigger the bsod within a few seconds. If I just sit there on a desktop, will run for a little while but will suddenly crash. Can't even troubleshoot or install different drivers with the card in my system, it won't stay running long enough to finish installing

Other Thoughts: I take this card out and put back in my hd 5770 and it works perfectly. So it seems I can't upgrade to this card.
Even if the card runs for a few minutes it will not pass sound to the right rear speaker on my onkyo 5.1 receiver, just hear crackle in that speaker, but again put back in my hd 5770 card and all is well
