Pros: So far this card has been able to play the games at 4k 60fps with no issues. I dont play too many tripple A titles so i have yet to test this card on witcher, or doom or those type, Overwatch 4k with vsync on using my asus 4k monitor never drops below 60fps. League of Legends(not a demanding game), not really worth mentioning its fps since its in the hundreds. Diablo 3 at 4k same things as overwatch doesnt drop below 60fps in large battles. Fallout runs it pretty well, sometimes drops into the 40's but usually comes right back to the 60 mark. So far have been very impressed with this card, outperforms my evga 970 in every game and has more consistent numbers while doing 4k gaming. Have ony seen it use a max of about 4 gigs of the memory while running multiple games.
Overclocked it about 100 mhz on memory and the core and still idles at the normal temps of about 26c.
Cons: While watching regular 1080p videos on youtube or a movie card gets up to 80c which is pretty ridiculous. I know they have a target temp that the card tries to reach. I use msi afterburner to set the fans to run a bit more than the 866rpm they pretty much always run at until i run a more intensive program. Highest ive seen this card go was about 82c and thats 30c+ higher than my previous 290x toxic edition card. Still performs very well for being so hot. Makes my liquid cooler quite a bit hotter as well and im using an h100i in a full tower in push pull. The fans on the radiator kick on quite a bit more often now with the new card giving off so much more heat, will probably liquid cool this card in the upcoming months.
Other Thoughts: Monitor- PB287Q

This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: So far I have almost had this board 2 and a half years without any issues at all. I'm running an 8320 at 4.5 ghz with a 290x an ssd. Processor is liquid cooled and isles around 19c with the voltage bumped up a bit. I'm using a full tower case by nzxt and have 8 fans. Literally have had zero issues since owning it. Bios updates are fine and runs everything I've done with and I clean everything once a month.
Cons: The heat sinks or lack of on the capacitors for the processor is kind of bad but have yet to see the board itself get hot at all
Other Thoughts: Don't blame your motherboard if you fry it trying to oc your processor or for when it quits. I still have a 2011 socket motherboard with an oc 3820 in it that had been over clocked to 4.4 water cooked, works like a charm.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have used a lot of mechanical keyboards including razers, and das keyboards. The razer keyboard i had the blue switches and the das i had brown. This keyboard is my favorite from the bunch that ive used and tested. The keys are quiet but still have that great feel that you get from a mech keyboard. The brightness settings are really nice, its goes really bright. The keyboard weighs quite a bit more than the razer blackwidow and some more than the das. This is also smaller than both of those keyboards. The rubber feet are very grippy, this thing wont go anywhere.
Cons: None so far. The cable could be braided but thats really nit picky.
Other Thoughts: Fantastic keyboard. Out of blue, brown, black, and green switches, this is the most comfortable for me to type on and to game on. It also doesnt keep my roommates awake at night when im gaming through the night.READ FULL REVIEW
