Pros:

The card performs as expected: namely, it's fast and will run anything you like at high detail levels. The built-in cooler keeps things at or below 80c without straining.

Cons:

The reference GTX 670 cooler suffers from an unfortunate and annoying whine that is the loudest thing in my system; easily audible over 3 case fans, the CPU fan, and the power supply fan all packed inside a case with noise dampening foam. My much older GTX 260 does not suffer from this problem, and neither does any other component!

My first Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 was DOA (artifacts even while POSTing); I was able to exchange it for a working one, but if you notice any problems, don't wait to get them fixed.

Other Thoughts:

The whine of the fan/shroud combo annoyed me enough that I bought an aftermarket VGA cooler to fix the problem. Given how painful it is to replace the cooler, I do not recommend this procedure unless you're already stuck with this card or one like it.

If you care at all about your machine's acoustics, purchase a different model of this card that does not use the reference nVidia cooling solution, or you will regret it. I certainly did.
