5 out of 5 eggsI finialy got my Cake er I mean Calibre!

Pros: The Calibre X560 Ti is a computing power house. Its factory over clocked. It runs cool when your not doing 3D stuff with it. Has a lot of extra metal to absorb more heat. The fan noise is standard even at max rpm.

Cons: This card can give off a lot of hot when playing 3D.
I couldn't install a card next to it because its a little wider than the standard specification.

Other Thoughts: I was OK with the heat in the winter time. Actually warmed my room while I was playing Batman AC (everything maxed). I didn't have any problems with it over heating. I do think it will survive in the summer heat as long as I have enough fans in the case to get the heat out.

I have owned this for 6 months. So far the fan noise is OK even with the side of the case open at max rpm.

680watt PSU;Core2 Quad overclocked to 3.2ghz;2 SSDs; 2HHDs; 8GB DDR2 RAM and everything runs stable.

I also got this card to experiment with CUDA and GPU rendering. I'll be interested in the 600 series for my next PC build!

5 out of 5 eggsthe very definition of "sweet spot"

Pros: super high clock---high speed high quality memory---absolutely BEAUTIFUL---backplate---quiet beyond belief ---overclocks to 1050 (even in sli!!!)
and oh soooo smmooooothh in games...high minimum framerates

Cons: they are a lil wide---they will NOT fit if you do not have an extra slot for sli!!!

Other Thoughts: in sli the lowest fps i get in unigine is 59.6fps MIN

in combo with an i5 2500k these cards have the HIGHEST (fm approved) 3dmark11 score to date @ 10071p

i have yet to do an overclocked 3dmark vantage run yet but @ stock with the same 2500k they get 32820P

btw--all of those scores and framerates are HIGHER than a gtx 590!!! food for thought

5 out of 5 eggsNothing Short of EXCELLENT

Pros: I played wow on it for a little while to try it out and it runs everything on ULTRA settings and stays minimum at 60FPS+. Then I went to Dead Island, once again this game ran perfectly smooth! Wish i could give a Frame Rate for I am unable to provide one. Everything was on max settings. This card is a BEAST!! You also have to love the dual fan! All metal casing, and a metal back plate for support!! I AM IN LOVE!!! SERIOUSLY MUST BUY!! DONT SETTLE FOR ANY OTHER GTX 560 Ti THIS IS THE ONE YOU WANT!!!

Cons: Barely fit into this case, but thankfully it is well vented! The card gets slightly warm but what do you expect from such raw power! not a con for the product, but I next day shipped it and the box arrived pretty mangled, luckly they packaged it pretty good with peanuts. Card is in perfect working condition, no noise or anything coming from it, whisper quiet!! You will not regret this purchase!!

Other Thoughts: This is running on my HP H8-1120 and HP x2301 1920x1080

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Absolutely beautiful graphics, runs Skyrim wide open with no lag. It's quiet too!

Cons: I don't get it, if he doesn't want to eat the green eggs and ham why does everyone try to force him?

5 out of 5 eggsLovin it

Pros: This card is perfect for a single monitor gamer like myself. Just as the other guy mentioned I have played "The Wither 2" and "Crysis 2" (dx11 and tesselation) both on max settings with no issues. I can count thus far only 2 moments on Crysis 2 where I experienced any lag, and they were both only the moments where the water was splashing over my visor, and even then it was only a split moment. I cant say how this card will play on multiple monitors, but for me I've been running all my games on max at 1920 x 1200.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For others that have issues with the vram as I see in many posts. This 1gb vram everyone has an problem with is more for those who dont use AA and game on a single monitor with max settings. For that 1gb is all you need...at least for now. When the age comes where 1gb will just not be enough, I'm pretty sure they'll stop making them and keep them at 2gb+; until then, just get a card that fits your needs. I've seen more then enough people knocking off cards but not having a very clear outlook of them. If your a top of the line gamer needing multiple screens that dish out at all settings, you have to get a card with decent vram and power to pull it off.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it

Pros: Plays everything I have been throwing at it with no lag thus far. Currently playing "The Witcher 2" max settings, without ubersampling of course, at 1920 x 1200. Works the same for me playing "Crysis 2" at max with the dx11 and tesselation update. Will be looking forward to trying it on "Metro 2033"

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If your using more then one monitor, you might feel it and have to lower some settings with the low vram, but if your a single monitor gamer then this is an excellent card. It will play everything you want and look great.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: Card is awesome, plays everything I want it to max settings. Can't wait to play Skyrim on this sucker!

Overclocking is easy using the MSI afterburner, the stock cooling on this card is phenomenal and the fans are whisper quiet!

Cons: none! :]

2 out of 5 eggsCooler Vibration

Pros: Seems to work fine rendering video games and internet streaming! With a balanced computer this is a fast card with a good position in the market!

Cons: The cooler on my unit emitted an overly loud vibration when the fans were any other than idle speeds. The faster the fans rotated, the louder the vibration became. I pulled the card and after careful inspection (an hour+) it appears that the fans on my card are not put into the bracket tight enough. There are three screws per fan and at least one screw on each fan was less than half in, leaving the fan bracket to vibrate against the black metal bracket and cause noise. After carefully putting these screws in, the vibration noise has been lowered by a lot! Now it is much less but still increases with the fan speed. I assume this is because even with the fan bracket attached tightly into the metal bracket, there is nothing keeping the metal bracket from vibrating against the heatsink fins. (no soft material that I can see, peering between the fan blades with a small flashlight)

Other Thoughts: This was certainly not how I wanted to spend a Saturday night. You might want to check your card when you get it out of the packaging. Lucky enough I found a little 1/8 screwdriver to finish putting these screws in and save the trouble of returning. But I could have easily broken a fan blade or something else fixing my own brand new card and then been out of luck. But I also didn't want to try and go through a hassle to return it or get it back with nothing found wrong with it. I hope these notes help you decide! Thanks for reading!
