Pros: seems very fast. and the heatsinks are really cool looking, and was even cooler that they were removeable, i had to remove on to fit my cpu heatsink.

Cons: im not sure that im running at the full 2400mhz. cpu-z is reporting the max bandwidth: "PC3-12800 (800mhz)"
i set the correct settings in the bios, the 10-12-12-31. it by no means seems slow but im worried that im not using them to the full potential.

Other Thoughts: im running the ASUS A88X-PRO (Bolton D4) FM2+/FM2 motherboard and AMD A10-7700K Kaveri 3.5GHz cpu.

Pros: Im a programmer and have never had my programs build so quickly. and integrated graphics is quite a bonus although i have not tried these yet because i ordered ASUS R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5 along with this build.

Cons: none yet

Pros: this card works great when it works.

Cons: alot of the same issues as others have reported, i get alot of artifacts from time to time and requires a restart to get rid of. i also get the black screen and my system restarts automatically after sitting on the black screen for 10-20 seconds. with some drivers it seems to solve the black screen issue but repeatedly get a few flickers on all screens and a message saying "Display driver has stop responding ect..." im very tempted to return this card and look for another that has better reviews. im a programmer and this black screen issue has caused me to lose small amounts of work because of the sudden restart while im coding and i cant have that.

Other Thoughts: here are my system specs,
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit
ASUS A88X-PRO FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard,
AMD A10-7700K Kaveri 3.5GHz Socket FM2+ 95W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series,
G.SKILL Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GTX,
Mushkin 500 Watt PSU
