5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Quad..., 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've overclocked this inside a Hackintosh (Hac Pro video editing machine) to 4.5GhZ. It runs around 30c with a third party installed fan and heatsink. Under full load (rendering and encoding full HD video) it just about touches 60c, which I'm more than happy with!

If you're interested in getting the last drop of power from your CPU, go unlocked!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great build quality but..., 22 Dec. 2013

This PSU is designed so that the fan spins up only when needed. Unfortunately, when it is needed, the fan sounds pretty crappy! I was disappointed to hear it for the first time, and even now I cringe when it spins up. It sounds like a creaky old door!

5.0 out of 5 stars Work: CUDA Play: Games!, 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this card to fit inside a Hackintosh I was building for video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. I can attest that this is a very powerful card, certainly not the most powerful, but it allows real time effects previewing and colour correction using Premiere thanks to CUDA technology.

I'm not a serious gamer, but I can play all games at highest settings in 1080p, but my screen is 1200 so I have to drop slightly for higher frame rates.

Really happy with this card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Install and forget it!, 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this product as it just works! It's easy to install and requires no configuring. This was purchased to provide an additional 4 ports to my studio, as you lose one port due to connection from the modem.

Works flawlessly, and gives me no drop in performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality matches price., 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a decent product for the price. It is quite rough around the edges, and stiff to use. I've had one or two accidents, due to the awkward nature of where the product is used, and the fact that it's not of the highest quality. But, I got what I paid for. Would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable but this is my second unit!, 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a great mouse, incredibly precise and adjustable, with weights to configure as per your required feel.

My first unit died after only a few months of moderate use. Amazon replaced it quickly.
