Look at the reviews from tech sites like Tom's, Overclocker's Club, clunk.org.uk, techpowerup.com, hardocp.com, etc. They're not fake. You may find some sites are partial to some mfrs. - they do get free stuff to test, but if you read all of them, you can make a pretty good decision on what is best for what you want to do with the item. I'm more suspicious of newegg reviews by people who did not buy the item from newegg - we don't even know if they ever actually had the item in their hands.
