This review is from: SPARKLE GeForce GTX 680 700021 (CALIBRE -- GTX680) 2GB 256-Bit Video Card
Pros: Very cool and quiet, as another reviewer said the boost clock can get as high as 1201MHz. The price at the time of purchase was a steal.
Cons: Build quality is slightly lacking, the black finish on the heat sink fins was scratched slightly. As this is just cosmetic and doesn't affect performance it wasn't a big deal for me.
A washer/spacer was missing on that back side of the heatsink, causing the rear third fan to be too close and not spin. I was able to fix this by getting an size 0 philips screw and slightly move up the sink in a higher position so the fan could move freely and put less strain on the pcb. I'll buy myself a space so the heatsink will be proper but this is honestly something QC could had spotted and corrected.
Other Thoughts: Seeing the color improvement is convincing me to replace my other TN monitor, but I plan to buy a "real" IPS panel like Dell's Ultrasharp.READ FULL REVIEW
