Pros: This card is amazingly fast. Though it is not hugely faster than a Titan, Geforce 780 (especially the custom 780's like the Lightning), or the Radeon 290X.
Cons: The default fan curve doesn't leave a lot of room for overclocking. I use the EVGA precision X to adjust the fan profile. Otherwise the card stays at 83C. With the fan profile adjusted it stays at a much cooler 60C under full load. The fan works harder and it is louder but its worth It to not have it so hot. Will allow for a lot more overclocking.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card is fast until it stops working.
Cons: I purchased this card back in September. It died on 11/22/13. Galaxy made it a bit of a hassle to RMA it. I have since found a large following of people online who have this card and it has stopped working suddenly. It has actually caught fire for some as well. When my replaced HOF shows up I intend to sell it. It isn't going anywhere near my computer. It is also worth noting to that there was a review posted on newegg for this card saying that the catching fire, uncerclocking, and just plain dieing have been fixed by galaxy with a special BIOS that you just have to call them up and they will send to you. I see the review has since been deleted by newegg probably. I'm guessing it was Galaxy trying to be sneaky and trick some people. This "special" bios that can be obtained by a phone call isn't available on their site. Galaxy hasn't been willing to address the issue with this card. If they did it would be on their site and also as a news posting on the hardware tech sites as well. Not through special telephone calls.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I'm running an i7 2600K at 4.6ghz and 16gigs of 1600mhz ram. I replaced two Radeon 6970 in crossfire that were starting to show their age. This card is about 20 percent faster. It is also VERY quiet. Compared to my Radeons this is practically silent. This also runs allot cooler. Check out other reviews online this card has tons of overclocking potential beyond the turbo button on the back.
Cons: This card is a 2.5 slot card so effectively it takes up 3 slots. Be aware of that if you are going SLI them or whatever space you are dealing with on your motherboard/case.READ FULL REVIEW
