Happy with the card, upset with myself for not waiting
Pros: Benchmarks well and overclocks decently to outpace the Titan. Can bump the voltage to 1.2v with Precision X and still see temperatures barely hitting mid 30s.
Cons: The Precision X utility has evolved in the years since I've used it last. Overclocking is based on power limits and adding to the default current clock depending on the voltage output. The result means that if I'm doing light activity that kicks the card up to moderate speeds/moderate voltage such as watching youtube the card can freak out and crash the computer, even though it's 100% stable in stress tests with no artifacts. There needs to be a way to do two power states - low and high. The fluctuation in between with random voltages and frequencies makes the card glitch out, specifically the memory, under low loads.
Other Thoughts: Technology is a funny thing about timing your purchase. Two weeks after I purchased this beast, it dropped $100 in price and they tacked on a 3 free game bundle. I might try to send an e-mail to EVGA customer service to see if they can throw me a bone and at least give me the free games. Wouldn't hurt to try.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: Wow. I literally max out the settings in every game and the card won't even hit 100%. I've also never seen it above 34 C at load. I haven't overclocked it yet because there is no point. Maybe when some next-gen games come out.
Cons: As someone else mentioned. When tightening the clamps I scratched the metal a bit and you can see the silver through it. I wasn't being overly difficult on it and even tried putting cloth between the wrench and clamp.
Other Thoughts: I bought it when it came out and didn't get a free game. Won't take off an egg but it makes me sad I got punished for being one of the first to buy it.

Pros: This card is insane compared to my old gtx 480 hydro coppers. Hit a peak of 37C when paired with a Eheim HPPS pump and a 120x3 radiator. Hit 1350 so far without any manual voltage increase, nice.
Cons: The cards are enormous now, you can't utilize the in-between x8 slots on your mobo like on the old hydro coppers. The cards are mostly larger in thickness and in height off the slot, so they may hit the side panels of many towers. These are best installed on a horizontal tech bench, since the size won't matter, and the massive weight of them won't tip your tower over like the dinosaur ribs on the Flintstones' car lol. Seriously these feel just like a brick...
Other Thoughts: Video cards with a preinstalled full-coverage water block is the best thing since sliced bread!

Pros: Fast. Cold. Hard.
Cons: Really wish this card had either 4gb or 6gb of memory.
Other Thoughts: System Specs Build June 12, 2013

Pros: Awesome design and looks really nice. Easy to install and get going if you already have the water cooling setup. I ran Unigine Valley and the card boosts to 1320 MHz with insane score for Extreme HD setup.
Cons: I am taking one egg off because I found one of the fittings and sealing cap were badly scratched that you can see the original colour of the metal. I think someone did a poor job with QC on this part. I really dislike that my new card has some parts that are heavily deprived of their black colour.
Other Thoughts: Be prepared to be shocked and awed. This card rocks and I am going to add another once they have stock again. Keep up the good work.

Warning Gigabyte Mobo useers
Pros: The card is fast, and stays about 28C on Idle and doesnt get above 45C on full load.
Cons: Warning to the Gigabyte Motherboard users, the graphics card Bios locks up the motherboards bios up. As of right now there is no fix for it, im not sure if this affects other motherboards but this is just a warning. Will give 5 eggs when this gets fixed
