    Well I got this FREE 3d mark vantage because I bought some patriot memory. Product key doesnt work so I e-mailed them to see what the deal was, never got a reply so I went to the futuremark forums. HA HA HA what a joke, all they can say is your a spammer because you and 100s of other people cannot get the product key to work. Idiots

    Hmm...never had an issue like that. I got a free Vantage key w/my EVGA GTX260 last july and it worked like a charm. But tbh, I see no point in getting heated about it, there are plenty of good game benchmarks out there (I still like the World in Conflict bench the best, it's even included in the demo) to suit your needs.

    Unfortunate you cannot get your key to work, too bad we don't have a Futuremark rep here to help ya out, hopefully you get it sorted...but I wouldn't say they should be avoided like the plague, while 100's may have issues, many more 1000's have not. There's always going to be those that have issues with something that many can run/activate flawlessly. Did you get the key from futuremark or another source?

    It could be because there are a ton of people using Keygens for their products. I got a free copy of Vantage and 06 with my Crosshair and HD 4890. Haven't tested either keys though.

    Had no problems with my free 4890 codes, either. Make sure you look for the 0 and Os, they're hard to tell apart.

    Oh wow, so we should boycott them because something they gave you for free doesn't work...

    Who cares, stop complaining, you didn't pay for it, get over it.
