Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, then you probably know that Grand Theft Auto V is scheduled to launch tonight at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT! That's just a couple hours from this post! I'm curious: who all here has it? What are your thoughts based on the footage that has emerged so far? Share your experiences here when it launches! :)

Check it out on Steam!

I have it, and it runs well as long as you don't overestimate your rig, most of the time.
Running i5-4690k@4.2ghz
32gb Corsair Vengeance RAM, DDR3, Dual channel @1600mhz
EVGA GTX970SSC "4" gb VRAM lel
Game is runnning off my Caviar Black HDD, which I've just found is SLOWER than my Seagate 3tb, so I'll switch over sometime and check performance then.

My FPS is about 70+, minus when I use the self radio, which tanks fps and causes stuttering. Bad codecs or something idk.
My settings are all max except AA. I have MSAA on 2x, FXAA off because it sucks, Nvidia TXAA on, Grass is on normal, Reflection MSAA off because huge fps hits and it's not noticeable. Shadows are set to Nvidia PCSS, Long shadows are on and high detail streaming while flying is on. All other advanced graphics options are off, as they are FPS killers.

Corsair H80i keeps it idle at about 28-30c most of the time, and my room isn't exactly cool.
I've rarely hit 50c for more than a second from CPU usage spikes, except when I SUPER DUPER BLACK MAGIC compress files using 7-zip.

I'm using an ASRock Z97 Killer series mobo, and their UEFI has several "load optimized OC settings"
4.2ghz was the highest setting before the text turned red indicating instability or not-recommended or something.
My RAM is also OC'd using XMP, I know nothing about manually overclocking RAM.
I've manually OC'd my CPU before, but effort, and if CMOS ever gets cleared or BIOS updates making you clear CMOS to even POST... haven't bothered in a while.
