It is kind of hit or miss still it seems.

The first one of these I bought had a stability problem. I'm not sure if the built in boost was too much or what. The card ran fine for the most part. Passed the all the extreme 3dMark Stress Tests and benchmarks easily. My brother happen to ask me what it scored on the FFXIV Benchmark. I wanted to see high numbers, so I tried it out. I never got to see those numbers with that card though. Every time the benchmark got to a certain point it crashed. By crashed, I mean it actually reset my computer. That got me looking for what could be the problem (This is a brand new rig I just put together, so it could have been anything at that point.). I eventually found out that if i reduced the clock speed of the card by 200 it made it through the Benchmark. I requested an exchange of the card on Amazon, and they sent me a new one. The new one worked perfectly through all the stress tests and the FFXIV benchmark (I got my high numbers). That is my reason for 4 stars. It's a great card...if you can get one that works. I never expected the FFXIV benchmark to point out an instability that 3dMark extremes tests didn't, but it did. All in all, I'm happy with the card. I just wish it was not such a gamble.
I'm going to bump this to 5 star since I have now found the problem. I started having the same problems with the new card I got. If you run into the same problem I had of the computer suddenly turning off and resetting, try using separate cables for each 8pin PCIe Power plug on the card. I found that one PCIe cable that splits into two 8pin connectors cannot supply enough power (or atleast the cables that came with the corsair HX850i cant). After I plugged in separate cables for each 8pin PCIe slot, the card worked fine in the spots the computer was crashing in.
