Great card 07/10/2013
Great performance, voltage unlocked and easy to overclock. Achieved a 20% overclock quite easily.
Great cooler, which keeps the card below 62 C at stock speeds, and does it quietly. Overclocked keeps the card below 72. Fans stay pretty quiet at stock speed, and only mildly audible when the card is overclocked and running at full load.
HUGE. Even though this thing uses 2 PCIe slots, the cooler extends outwards to block a third PCIe slot, pretty much rendering it useless. In addition, this thing is so big it sags towards the front end of the computer, unless you put the computer on its side or prop it up somehow.
The dual BIOS switch is a nice idea, but it only goes switches it from 950 MHz to 1000 MHz at stock speeds, and I haven't gotten any noticeable overclock gains using the second BIOS. Plus, to overclock the second you have to use the "force constant voltage option" in Afterburner/Trixx, leading to higher power consumption. No thanks.
