The purpose in his having the latest and greatest on an nvidia forum (perhaps THE nonofficial nvidia forum) is to sell hardware, not warn people off it...

I wouldn't expect to hear about problems until AFTER the hardware is out of date and long gone...

I'm sure the numbers being posted are fine though. For problem reports, you probably should look for other reviews from people who pay for their hardware and aren't paid by the people making the hardware.

Just to be safe.
I'm pretty sure he buys his own hardware...
