FAST and STABLE! This card is just great. Being the fasted single GPU card out it should be. I've dabbled with the overclock and it easily hit 850MHZ on the GPU and 2100MHz on the RAM. (basically the speed of the EVGA water cooled card). It will go much further especially if I use the voltage tweak.
Built in power overload circuit does not give an accurate MAX load and temp. When running OCCT or FURmark it will downclock the card giving the illusion of a max 80C temp. There is a bypass switch through GPU-Z and with this enabled it maxes at 91C load. idle I sit around 40C.
Asus SmartDoctor utility to overvolt is terrible. I prefer the MSI afterburner, but does not allow overvolting on this model.
$509.99 after code isn't terrible, but a price point in the mid $400's would have made this more appealing to many.
10% code on Newegg is just weird. Lower the price and dump the code.
