I'm curious as to why, could you elaborate?


You don't have full voltage control with boost/ghz cards. A plain ole reference card in this case is top shelf.

Nice that's something I didn't know, I guess that's not too much of an issue if your not overclocking it like crazy

A lot of companies offer what's called "advanced rma" or cross shipping for returns. They'll basically send you a new item immediately and place a hold on your CC that is removed when they receive the returned item. I've done it many times and it works well.

Can anyone in here explain to me what are the meaning of "Advanced RMA" is? Since I'm not familiar with that. For OP I'm sorry if I hijacked your thread.

it could vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but Western Digital calls it Advance Replacement. They send you a new one even before receiving the defective product.
