Very nice card 05/16/2012
Plays every game I tested at 60+ fps on max settings. Has never reached 60C, very cool card. I love how short this card is. I'm guess that this card would fit in any and all case I have ever owned.
The shroud is does not remove hot air from the case as you might think, instead the heat sink and fan remove only some of the hot air from the case leaving the rest inside. If your thinking about buying this card. I would advise you to buy the nonreference card instead. In fact the only reason I removed an egg was because of the shroud. I look at it as a step backwards.
While testing I did notice that skyrim fps stayed at 60fps 90% of the time but somtimes would drop as low as 47fps, also while running is high mode I never got any higher then 60 fps but never droped. This could be a driver error due to these still being brand new, give it 5 more months and it should be fine.
This is the first non sapphire card I have bought, and even though in the past I've heard some down right scary storys about PowerColor cards, I can say I'm pleasantly surprised.
Going to see how this card holds up over time.
Games I have tested at max settings:
Oblivion-with graphic update mod
