Great HTPC Card
Pros: - Silent (fanless)
Cons: - Even though the heatsink is small, it still takes up an extra PCI slot.
Other Thoughts: I'm using this card in my HTPC box running MythTV. Advanced 2x de-interlacing through VDPAU works perfectly. For me, this card runs at ~31C when idle, and maxes out ~50C after watching a few hours of 1080i content. I have not had any overheating issues, although I do have a well ventilated case.

Hot hot hot - not in a good way
Pros: Silent, works great until it gets too hot
Cons: Runs very hot. My HTPC case does not have a fan directly blowing air over the graphics card, which seems to me like it would defeat the purpose of a fanless card. The heat resulted in a system lockup after 45 minutes of browsing the internet and watching videos from various websites.
Other Thoughts: I was using this in an HTPC - which is the reason I got a fanless card with VDPAU support and audio over HDMI. However the card made the whole corner of my case (top, back, side, and bottom) extremely hot to the touch, the case has 4 fans including PSU.
