This review is from: ECS Black series OC NBGTS450-1GPI-F GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Pros: Cool seems quiet to me, i tell ya now this mother stays really cool 4 copper heat pipes, massive heat sinks and fans. well worth my money my room stays pretty hot even in winter (upstairs room). This thing under full load for 2hrs on factory set clocks which is oc'd from factory quiet a bit to he hasn't stepped above 38 degrees Celsius with fan at 30% in room temperatures of 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you need a cool card and don't wanna tamper with modifying the cooler yourself this definetly for you. Length wasn't much longer than my old 8800GT if it was didnt compare i got enough space to hold the biggest card out there
Cons: my processor bottle necks it i think but im not sure but think so cause hitting same fps on my games as my old 8800GT (G92) did but idk 8800 was a beast but it had melt down was getting old. Heavy very heavy card i was lil scared on installing it cause its heavy afraid it might break so when you install it make sure you lay pc on its side so dont crack its board in the slot cause ita dangle and that not good make sure you put the 3 possible screws to hold it in be bottom middle and top (if pc sitting vertical after install) cause like i said very heavy shipping weight was tad over 6lbs maybe drop 1 pound for the box and foam chips i'd say card easy 5lbs
Other Thoughts: Do note i did extensive research before i bought from different sources it is wide can take up to about 2 1/2 to 3 slots worth of width so if you run it 2x sli+ keep that in mind make sure u got the space so you dont over heat something lol
