I cant edit my previous review
Pros: This video card is awesome!
Cons: There is some mild tweaking that needs to be done in the bios and windows but once it is working is is awesome!
Overall Review: My previous review was a single egg, but I RMA'd the bad card and now it works flawlessly!
Most expensive Junk I've purchased.....
Pros: The hardware itself seems top knotch when it works.
Cons: The drivers don't work for this card. It only works in safe mode or in the bios for extended lengths of time. It constanltly black screens and reboots my computer. It might boot into windows just to blackscreen and reboot. Might take 10 seconds or 3 minutes. First I had to flash the bios on my motherboard which was purchased 8/2012 to get it to even work. (no big deal as its new hardware) I've tried the drivers that came with the card, an assortment of drivers that were on nvidia's website and to no avail. The best i got this thing running was last night for a few hours on modded 314.22 drivers. When I booted my computer this morning it started all over again. Things I've tried to get it to work and stable: flash mobo bios disable igpu disable pcie power savings in windows disable nvidia's power savings feature change power cables to different rails. install 5 types of drivers including old modded drivers 4 clean installs.
Overall Review: I don't want to return this card because the hardware seems to work when it does work. But I didn't spend $720 after tax for something that doesn't have working drivers.
This drive didn't read Blue-ray
Pros: Looks cool. Other than that nothing.
Cons: The drive didn't read blue-ray disks. I guess I was one of the unfortunate people who got a defective drive.
Overall Review: It read dvd's and cd's fine. When I insert a blue-ray disk it shows the disk as a cd. I updated the firmware to the latest and it still didn't work.
