Pros: Great Card for the two years it works. I mean, this card rocked for two years straight!
Cons: After two years and one day, it stops being rad.
Other Thoughts: I bought this card on 3/4/2011. On 3/4/2013 (exactly), one of the fans began to make awful cries of pain, my temperatures were skyrocketing, and the card was shutting off randomly from the heat.
A little investigation and I discover the fan is barely able turn. Pull apart the heatsink, clean the fans thoroughly, and reassemble with no change in symptoms--the fan is toast. It's just shot.
Went shopping for an aftermarket cooler and figured I'd see if anyone else with this card suffered the same fate. Haha! Read some of the other reviews! Apparently this 2-year shutoff was an intended feature or something? Like a freebie you get for buying it, along with Mafia 2.
