EVGA 02G-P4-3063-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card w/ ACX Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great quiet fans, giant cooling solution with lots of surface area, idles at 29c according to Nvidia inspector, Nice looking open style case/cover. Fans "ramp" up and down slowly when required, they don't just switch right to the required speed immediately. This eliminates those fan speed switching transients where the fans might be constantly modulating on other cards. I realized this when manually commanding the fans to different speeds, this thing never runs hot enough to even ramp the fans up.

Cons: Unit as a whole could be a little more rigid, flexes a little. Who cares.

Other Thoughts: A huge upgrade over my old evga 9800 gtx+. Funny you read all this stuff on the forums about "bottlenecking" these cards on older socket systems. Guess what? I am running this in a 2.0 spec slot with an E8500 Wolfdale processor at 3.8 ghz(400 fsb) on an ASUS P5Q-E and doubled my frame rates in every game I have. It may be bottle-necked to some extent, but not enough to make it a waste of money on an older socket T system, properly set up however. I would not go any faster graphics card-wise on an old setup like this, though. This result is with older games that cannot utilize 4 core processors, keep in mind. I went from 25-30 fps average on medium settings 2x anti-liasing in Crysis with my 9800 gtx+ to over 60 with the 660 on max settings max anti-liasing in the exact same system. Also doubled my frame rates in Sniper Elite v2 same scenario. The fans never ramp up, either.
