Pros: It's been wrecking everything I through at it. Haven't attempted to OC this yet as I'm waiting on a few parts for upgrades first. Drivers seem to be acceptable and haven't had any issue with it. In my loop under a 15 minute burn in stress test using Furmark it only reached 51c. Normally it runs around mid 30c.
You can adjust which side of the holes you want to use fairly easily, that ways it works best for your loop layout.
Cool design on the cooler plate that is readable when installed. :)
Best part is warranty stays on the card. Honestly that's the best part, makes it a lot less worrisome.
Cons: Only comes with barbs. Might not be a big deal to some but I prefer compression. Had to pick up extra fittings, not worth taking an egg off though.
Thing is a monster for length size. Once again not worth an egg off just be aware.
Other Thoughts: I picked this up on 2/16/2014 and wrote this review 3/27/2014.
This thing is everything I could have hoped. I was nervous as I was upgrading from 2 XFX 5770's and had been out of the GPU information loop for quite some time.
I'm running this on a 850w PSU that is ~6 years old. FX8350, Crosshair IV. I'm also running a redundant pump system in my loop so I have a little more power draw there. I feel that I'm approaching the peak of my power limit for this PSU and waiting to replace the PSU before OC the GPU.
Pros: Very slim. I know it should be expected but it was half the width of my old cards.
This thing destroys games. I haven't ran into anything That pushes this card to it's limits. Every setting as high as it can go no prob.
It looks slick with the logo on the card.
Cons: Would be awesome if you could change which cooler this comes with (what the cooler is made out of)
Not taking an egg though would just be nice to have the option.
Other Thoughts: I had to change how my loop operates a bit seeing as this is nickel plated, had to take out the silver and use something else for the biocide.
I was told by a rep that even if I used silver it wouldn't affect my warranty with EK or powercolor so that was pretty reassuring. Although they still recommended against using it.
Pros: Ran everything I wanted great. Couldn't complain and absolutely loved it.
Cons: Just stopped charging today. I have it connected made sure power is going to the outlets the whole thing and it still says "connect your charger" Now it's to dead to even power on. Seems I have that issue others are experiencing but ~4 months of pleasant use.
Other Thoughts: Going to request an RMA this week. Unfortunately I used this to read all my ebooks for college and the new semester just started so I'm kind of out of 5 text books I desperately need for the time being(at least during class).READ FULL REVIEW
