Overall great value. 08/02/2012
great overclocker. was able to reach 1200 core and 1600 memory (thats the max limit in MSI Afterburn, if you dont tweak ini files) with 1200/1600 clocks, stays under 65C in max load (crysis 2, metro, 3dmark 11, 3dmark vantage)
I was able to get ~ P10400 points in 3dmark 11 which equals overclocked GTX680. i am very pleased with performance, i came from 560TI SLI.
there are only a few glitches on drivers level. I hope they get fixed in later catalyst releases. Also, I dont udnerstand why gigabyte used that blue colored board for this card... I had to pick this brand because it has the best cooling solution but had to gave up on board color (in my case, i have red and black theme)
