Pros:

- Excellent acoustics for a blower-type fan-sink.

- Out of the box runs with a temperature target of 79°C and will adjust its clocks, voltages and fan speeds to give optimum performance all while maintaining quiet operation.

-Only 10.5" in length, so many small form factor cases can easily fir this card (Node 304, Prodigy, Elite 120, etc.).

- An ideal Nvidia solution for 2560x1440 displays, I run most new games maxed out (don't need as much AA at higher resolution, but every other setting is dialed to the max).

- Game play is much smoother than Crossfire or SLI.

- 7 and 1/2 hours GPUGrid long run.

- Extremely stable with the newest 331.65 WHQL driver.

- Much lower typical power consumption (50W+!) compared to R9 290/R9 290X.

- A reasonable amount of overclocking headroom (~100 MHZ), given a bump in the power threshold.

Cons:

- Is louder than the EVGA ACX 780 by about 3-4 dB under load, which is not entirely noticeable.

- Some heat is still propelled into you case out the end of the card.

- Greatly reduced double precision floating point performance vs. Titan.

- A bit pricey compared to it's newer AMD competition, even after a recent price drop.

- Slight coil whine under rare instances, nothing too concerning.

Other Thoughts:

28nm has reached the end of it's life with these cards; buy anything more powerful than a GTX 780 and you are going to be thermally limited on the stock/aftermarket cooling, and overclocking them would require watercooling to maintain noise levels. Noise is a very important consideration with an ITX system, especially one that sits close to it's user. A GPU is not supposed to imitate a space heater or a jet turbine. Wait for 20nm if you already have 280X/770 or above.
