It's a pity you never had the experience

Offered you the opportunity to voice your experiences and be heard by a board; instead you'd rather further berate my build and this company?

I consider my offer declined.

Regardless of their coolers, they beat Asus in every regard, especially where it counts: warrAnty (notice the a?) and customer service.
A board? Do I care? No, it was donations to a USO, I fixed the computers myself. You are either just spouting off ****, I've been in situations where the highest tech we had was just basic ****, and we never needed more. The computers they have here on Peterson AFB(NORAD is here, as is USNORTHCOM, and SMDC) are all just simple computers, I think we'd have higher quality. Asus has always been quick and great in RMAs. I've had both myself. Please stop spouting off crap.

You have yet to prove me wrong on any front at all.

You straw man every single argument I've yet had or deflect attention from the main point.

In my experiences as Admin, I've done a great deal of RMA's...

EVGA is always the easiest and their new "lifetime" program is a great thing to take advantage of...

Asus has never been prompt, especially considering we're a vendor and their CS is lackluster at best (intern JUST got off the phone, 2ish hours for ASUS RMA)...

MSI is a good company, decent RMA's and a good product...

Sapphire's CS dept. is a "shack" in SoCal virtually but, their RMA's seem to come through...

Gigabyte is pleasant to deal with.

I actually have a pair of XFX 6990's in my machine atm and I personally like XFX's CS but, it's extremely hit or miss and I always have to ask for the supervisor so, it's not exactly 100%.

At this very second, with the economy the way it is, I'd pick CS/Warranty out-right and as a business, you really can't beat EVGA's step-up OR ARMA policies...

yes i would. look at the design of the PCB. its a non reference 570 but looks like a reference 560 PCB. throw a water block on it and ur good to go. I would buy it to fit it in a Mini ITX Lan Li case because it fits and the reference 570s do not.

IT would still blow up like a regular 570 (potentially) if you add some voltage.
I'd get the ASUS DCII 570 because its pretty much tbe best along with the MSI TFIII.

if your going to OC a 570 u should know what your doing and refrain from adding voltage cause of the weak VRMs. IMO i agree with the TF II and III cards from MSI. AMAZING PCB. they are non reference but hey....if ur gunna stick with air cooling then u shouldnt care too much just that they exhaust inside the case. I think the MSIs have a 6+2 phase VRMs on their 570s but dont quote me on that one lol

Why even bother putting it underwater if you arent raising the voltage?

I love EVGA because I enjoy a good customer service operation, which they have down pat.

I've had a 570 and a 580 from them and nothing has gone wrong yet. Also they have a 24 hour customer service tech line which you can call and they help you with whatever you need.

They've got a lifetime customer in me. As long as they don't start pulling that -KR BS with higher end cards. I like my lifetime warranty and Step-Up was a blast.
