Pros: The cards have very, very good heat dissipation and hot air removal at the expense of size. The card is rather large, but it does have two big fans and A LOT of copper.
They're very easy to manipulate. I have my fans set to custom speeds and the core clocks upped slightly because I have the fans to facilitate a little overclocking. That's all through catalyst of course, and if you don't have it, make sure you get the latest drivers and the raptr software.
Cons: In relation to the power of the card, it's rather large.
Other Thoughts: I bought one of these about 5 months ago from best buy, and bought and got another one today. I hooked them both up, and I noticed a performance increase. Nothing incredible, but It certainly is something. With the downing of depth of field and shadow res to normal on Tomb Raider, I get 60-70 fps with everything else on Ultra, but that is probably because I'm a little short handed on the CPU end of things. I'm happy with this build, mostly because I'm done throwing money at it, but If you're going to get a 270x, I would recommend Sapphire. Sorry XFX, but their cards are cheaper, go on sale more often, and are considerably smaller. I would not have ran into the problems I did installing my two XFX's if they had been smaller, and being cheaper would have been a bonus. With the payout that I payed, I think I overpayed a little on the performance I got, but with other card companies, you could get more then what you payed for. Not saying I'm not happy with what I got, but I feel like an Nvidia buyer that overpayed for hardware.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful blue light
Moves a lot of air and is relatively quiet
Cons: The adapters it comes with are awkward. There is two different adapters on the end and the one that you don't use hangs there useless and unattractive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful Blue LED
Relatively small (check exact specs)
Plenty of cords for hooking up anything you would need
Cons: I very greatly stress "a little" in the next sentence.
It's a little loud.
Other Thoughts: Very soon I will be getting a second 270x and crossfiring the both of them using this power supply. After doing some testing this power supply will have plenty of reserve for running the two and 4 120mm fans, as well as a 6300. I will update the review with my results once that happens.READ FULL REVIEW
