Poor Reliability, Horrible Customer Service
Pros: Adequate performance and decent price for the average HTPC.
Cons: I originally bought this card for my HTPC. But, when I switched to MadVR I found that this card was a little under powered and decided to upgrade. I removed the card from my HTPC and put it in my Wife's computer only to find that the DVI output did not work. I was only using the HDMI output in the HTPC so I never knew there was a problem with the card.
Other Thoughts: Not suitable for a high performance HTPC. This card does not have enough performance to run the MadVR video renderer. I found that it drops frames on some high resolution video streams. It also does not have enough performance to handle smooth fast forward and rewind of high bit rate high definition video.

A grate upgrade
Pros: I like it that it don't have a fan, and it has a vary thick heat sink made of steel not a cheep mettle. stays at 40C-50C. Can play wow on almost ultra settings at 1080P at x8 anti-aliasing. I love the Open GL. I have it overclocked at 670 GPU clock and 720 Memory.
Cons: One thing is compatibility this will not fit in all Motherboards because of the heat sink is big, and hit the CPU chip set heat sink make she you have a just over a 1inch heat sink there or use another PCi16x slot if you have more than 1 slot
Other Thoughts: i had a 5450 and it had 80 Stream Processors and it was slow but good this was a grate upgrade for me

Card too wide to fit
Cons: Won't even fit in my mini ITX case because the heat sink is on both front and back and when you try to install it, it hits the CPU fan (which is a standard Intel heatsink, not third party)

Don't buy this junk
Pros: Fanless, silence.
Cons: VERY poor performance! In fact, this card performed worst than my old HD5450 card on two out of three benchmark including WEI.
Other Thoughts: I want a silence card with better performance than HD5450 and e*ay was given out rebate so I got it through Newegg's e*ay store. Big mistake. I don't know if the unit was defective or due to the poor design and reducing the data path from 128 bit to 64 bit, the net effect is this card can not even out run HD5450! I am returning it. Don't waste time and money on it.
