For this review we migrated to new Windows 10. Migration was not straightforward and without issues. We tried the windows upgrade and ended-up with some bugs related to Nvidia driver. The Nvidia driver was not shown in Control Panel among other installed programs, however Nvidia control panel was accessible and fully working. This issue was solved with an Nvidia driver reinstall.
We could not find a solution for the second, more serious problem. We were not allowed to rise the graphics card memory clock but the GPU overclocked without problems. This issue was present when we upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
A fresh system install solved all the problems. We believe that most of our readers will do fresh OS install however, and we advise you to do so.
Windows upgrade may work for the most users, but there is no warranty that every byte will at the right position after upgrade.
