Pros: Awesome performance, Looks great, rigid with backplate so it won't bend in your system, run cool & quiet, overclocks well. Easily able to run over 1200mhz with very little tweaking at all. Looking at getting a seconds. 1100+ GPU score in 3dmark11
Other Thoughts: It's unfortunate the run of bad cards that people are experiencing, however this card at the end of the day is the same as all the other 680 just with a different cooling shroud and bios. EVGA is good about catching issues with cards and I would't pass the beauty up because of a small percentage of owners bad luck.
Remember a much greater percentage of people will review a product poorly with a bad experience than those with a good experience.
Pros: 10k 3Dmark P score out of the box. Fan profile can me manually adjusted to be nearly silent even under full load and still be below 80c. Looks great, EVGA, Won't bend because of back plate, and is all around a beast.
Other Thoughts: Runs a little hotter than reference design even at the same clocks, my theory is because the cooling shroud doesn't dip down by the fan there is a little less of a tunneling effect for cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks Awesome.
Dual bios (multiple versions, setups, and independent saved profiles.)
Savable overclocking profiles. (can even be exported to USB)
Cons: Little more expensive than say a ASrock Z77 Extreme 4 but I think its a better buy if for nothing else than it's appearance.
Other Thoughts: The more I think about stuff for this review the more I recommend it. Especially if Blue is part of your color schemeREAD FULL REVIEW
