5 out of 5 eggs Upgraded from a GTX950 SC+ (purchased from other website) 10/26/2016

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 AMP!, ZT-P10600B-10M, 6GB GDDR5 Super Compact Dual-Fan IceStorm Cooling FREEZE Fan Stop

Pros: Wow, so I upgraded from an FX6300 and GTX950 SC+ card and let me tell you the difference. Since BF1 just came out, I'll use that metric. I was able to game on medium/high settings 1080p previously to achieve and AVG of around 60 FPS. However, after upgrading to this card, overclocking the Boost by 275mhz, and memory by 250mhz.. Coupled with an I5-6600k (4.3ghz OC). I am getting 100FPS roughly AVERAGE on ULTRA SETTINGS!!!! I also find my Nvidia Geforce Experience is optimizing games soooo much higher than they previously could muster. The best part is, I can scale up the resolution on a lot of the games to 1440p or even 4k, on less demanding titles.

Cons: I have zero cons about this, the appearance is cool, the fans barely turn on and it's not big at all in my case.

Other Thoughts: I contemplated the 3 Gig versions for a while, but said I might as well spend a few more and play it safe. GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 would have been awesome, but ideally for 1080p gaming like myself, you don't need anything more.

Pros: I upgraded from a FX6300 to this I5-6600k and overclocked to 4.3ghz with the HYPER 212 EVO. First, let me start by saying, how freaking cool this thing runs. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen it go past the 50's Celsius mark even when gaming. sometimes my old AMD overclocked ramped into the high 70's or 80's and that was a no no. Second, this 212 EVO fan is absolutely stunningly quiet! I sometimes don't know my computer is on unless I look under the desk, because even when playing games nothing seems to get pushed that hard.

Cons: This isn't a con to the processor, but when I upgraded to this, I had to also upgrade my motherboard for intel, then my ram (DDR4) for sabertooth, then my graphics card (GTX 1060) then ultimately my PSU LOL.. I built an entire new rig just to switch basically and that hurt. I wanted to spend $230 max, and I went towards $800. thanks credit card.

Other Thoughts: I have ALWAYS used AMD, and until I finally made the switch I didn't realize the hype that everyone says about them. This is by far a better company when it comes to processors. On a side note, BF1 under medium/high settings with my FX6300 and GTX950 was around 60fps give or take. I5-6600k with an OC AMP GTX 1060 and I get 100FPS roughly all the time on Ultra settings 1080p.. Insane how much of a difference a few bucks can make.

Pros: LED's on these seem to last a long time, I have purchase 3 others in the past 3 years and they have not burned out or died. They look cool, have a high RPM to make sure the rig stays down in temp and when working properly are in fact quiet.

Cons: I can't rate this latest one I purchased anything higher than a 2. Not sure why they are different than my other ones, but this is the loudest fan I have ever heard and I have two PC's built with 4 of these total. I'm just going to assume I received a bad fan?

Other Thoughts: Like I said, I have 3 others, and they work perfectly fine. Not sure how this one ended up being so loud, and when I say loud I mean extremely loud.
