Fantastic card! Very quiet 02/09/2014
Very Fast and Very QUIET! Absolutely fantastic combo. Most cards get very loud under load. This one can be hashing at 20 intensity (max load for you non-miners) 2 feet from your head and you can barely hear it.
Long, 12 inches, make sure it will fit in your case or buy a new case.
Currently overpriced. Newegg has had it as high as $799 recently. I got mine for $699 and I thought that was way too much.
I bought 2 of these, one for my machine and one for my wife's. We have our computers in the family room so we needed something quiet and I didn't want the hassle of watercooling. These fit the bill perfectly.
My wife and I like to game together, sometimes while watching TV so we have our PCs set up in the family room. Her PC is behind our chairs so it must be quiet since when we recline it's only a few feet from my right ear. I can barely hear her PC even with it mining litecoin at full speed. Card never gets to 80 degrees. I have another brand 290x in the basement for mining, I can't get it to hash as fast as these (70-80mhps difference) even at the same or higher clock speeds, and it sounds like a hairdryer (that isn't an exaggeration for effect... it really does) when mining. Beware the reference cooler. That one is actually outside the case on a riser next to a cracked open window in February and it sits at nearly 95 degrees C.
