Pros: I'm a little smitten with this card. I just finished the campaign on CoD: Ghosts at 1440p at 100hz (oc'ed catleap) and this single card was able to push 100 fps for most of the game at ultra. It fell to half that in particle heavy outdoor levels with sand or snow. No crashes even though I'm running beta drivers. I only expect this performance to get better as they tune it.

I'm able to achieve a 20% overclock on water with an ek block. 1.2ghz core clock is no joke.

Cons: I've noticed that it does emit a high pitched whine for a minute or so while under load. As I said before I have a water block, so it's not even the fan. It goes away after a few minutes.

As other reviewers have noted the memory doesn't overclock at all. At least on my card.

Other Thoughts: Too bad about the memory, but the core chip overclocks well so I'm pleased with my purchase.

I'll probably pick up a second one when they become more widely available and go crossfire. Because who doesn't love massive overkill?
