— For a spinning disk hard drive which this beauty is, its still spinning and doing a real good job even after 8 years of every day usage!

— For a 2014 released and bought SSD drive this still kicks ass in 2020. Its light weight, easy to mount, plug n play, ofcourse its SATA but above all, its still fast to this date!

— You want reliability.. right? and you want it to be fast. You also want it to be M.2 format. I say look no further!

— MSI 1080 Ti Gaming (non X) just so good. Bought it used for 435 pound is just a steal or bargain. Im coming from a Sapphire RX590 nitro+ SE, and before that an MSI GTX 960 2GB and before that a Sapphire Radeon 7850 1GB and my very first card XFX HD 4870 within a 12 year window.. Having experienced all the above cards i gotta say the 1080 Ti is absolute heaven to experience. im so glad i followed my gut and bought it.

— upgrading from a msi gaming GTX 960 2GB overclocked at 1544Mhz core and 2000Mhz Memory. I have absolutely no regrets or sorrow for that matter simply because the RX 590 destroys the 960 in performance. a great card for its price tag. now i can finally enjoy high - ultra 1080p gaming!

— Even though i made the mistake to go with the 2GB MSI gaming version of this card (this was atleast 3 years ago) And even if it only has an ASIC quality of 66.8%... this card can be pushed over its limits like none other -without any hardware mods- which i find truly fascinating. It runs most games i play at a decent medium to high setting ratio which is completely fine for the price at the time. Which is why i love it so much. it packs so much punch hidden under its hood for a reasonable price for costumers that are a little low on budget. For now i have the MSI 2G gaming version running at a stable 1506Mhz clock and 4001Mhz mem @1268mV-core. I even took the time to use liquid metal on the GPU die instead of the factory applied compound which was already dried up when i decided to change it. The die under heavy load with factory compound sat around 76-84 Celcius and now with liquid metal sits around 46-53 Celcius, before then the GPU fans will have sped up to their max values to keep the components on the card cool as well because we all know that heat is a slowly destructive factor.

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
