Extremely quiet
Extreme performance


ridiculously long

Other Thoughts:

I previously had an EVGA GTX 670 superclocked 4GB. It was an excellent card but at 2560x1440 resolution games were a little too slow for my liking. For example, Tomb Raider would sometimes dip below 30 fps. Most of all, the 670 was LOUD.

I'm very sensitive to noise, especially high frequencies such as coil-whine, fan buzz, etc., and I'm happy to report that this card is QUIET. At idle you can barely hear the thing and at load it's a bit louder but not obnoxiously loud like the 670 which sounded like a jet turbine.

Furthermore, the thing is wicked fast. Even at 2560x1440 it runs everything at 60 fps+, with ultra detail. My CPU is a 3770K oc to 4.2ghz, for reference.

I have a Silverstone FT-03 case and it fits but I had to remove one of the cooling fan housings to get it in. I wish the card was shorter. The price is also on the high side, but I have no regrets. I love this card!
