Summary: I purchased this so I have separate video memory. Overall, I'm pleased with the card. There is a shortfall, the fan on this cardnis of low quality. After a few weeks, the fan starts making noise. I shut the system down and pulled the card. Gave the fan a real good cleaning. Re-installed card and rebooted. The noise is gone for a couple weeks.
Summary: Just wondering why people are giving this device 3+ stars, when they are ripping the unit to pieces. The 1st 3 reviews I looked at were 3 stars or higher, yet they all had to remove the card for noisy fans or poor performance. Makes no sense. How can we trust these stars? If the device had to be removed, it should get a zero.
