Keeps cool with games on ultra settings, and I haven't even altered the fan speed yet (still clocked at 20%.) No driver issues, pretty much worked out of the box for me. I haven't tested any recent games such as BF4 on it so I can't provide any accurate benchmark for that but, Final Fantasy XIV on ultra gets 50~60 fps. Tested Borderlands 2, Saints Row IV, DmC, and Injustice and all run perfect on ultra. WoW runs great as well, but that says nothing for cards these days as my HD 4650 from HIS can play that on ultra.
The only con some may find is that as most AMD products go, it doesn't play nice with others. For best performance make sure you have at the very least a mobo with AMD North and South bridge.
I haven't bothered overclocking yet as I haven't found any reason to (other than I can, and I'm not one for fixing what isn't broken.) So I can't rightfully tell you this will not have issue overclocking. Many others however, claimed that it still stays relatively cool after overclocking and there isn't any process dropping that has been experienced with other cards (not by myself personally.)
This card is enormous. I had to get a bracket mount so I could move a hard drive out of the way for room. It sit comfortably but the end of the heatsink sits on snuggly on top of another harddrive, and cables kind of had to be shoved out of the way. I currently use a mid tower and it barely fits so if you have a small case, it's definitely not going to fit.
