Pros: Has yet to be the limiting factor in any game I've played, even without OC.
With OC, it still didn't get hot running anything I played.
It's not as loud as you might think, especially considering there are three fans.
Cons: It's heavy and big.
Other Thoughts: Despite the size and weight, I fit this card into my EVGA Hadron Air. It has had no cooling issues in this case with the stock CPU cooler, GPU cooler, and stock case fans. It's a workhorse than fits in my carry-on. Leaves nothing to be desired. I paid a higher price for it last year and don't regret it, although a cheaper card may have fit my needs, since I haven't taxed this card at all.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small. Fit in my carry-on luggage small, which is exactly why I needed this case.
Gold rated PSU included. This sold me, it was hard to find a good power supply for other small cases. My rig is no holds barred - gaming, media, everything else. This PSU can handle more than an HTPC role.
Sturdy. The bit that props the front of the case up is really solid.
Cons: Small. Hire a child to assemble your computer small. I had to get creative to fit some things into the case, but in the end everything does fit.
Poor case fans. They are loud and run 100% all the time. I can't figure out how to control them, maybe because they are only 3 PWM.
Paint job. Not a big deal at all, but at a price tag around two hundred dollars this whole thing should be powder-coated nicely. There are naked metal bits that you can see with the side panel off.
Loud. I went from a Fractal R4 with sound deadening to this case. It is an ear-sore in comparison. I had forgotten how nice my previous case was until I heard this thing run. This was, however, to be expected considering it is so tiny and light - adding sound deadening measures would make it quite dense.
