Pros: High frame rates.
Cons: High temps. Cheap plastic material. No plastic cover for PCI-E gold pins or static free bag during unboxing.
Other Thoughts: After spending $740 plus tax for two of these cards I think I am about to cry. These cards level out at 85 degrees Celsius for games like Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, and Counter-Strike Global Offense. It doesn't matter if video settings are maxed out or if settings are put on low, it still burns at 85. I'm scared to even try graphic intense games such as Metro or Battlefield 4. Furmark burn in test leveled out at 87 degrees after 5 mins. Running at these temps I doubt these cards will last.
I contacted Zotac with this problem and they replied with a simple "The temperature level for 85 degree is within acceptable standard, because your using SLI bridge both cards will run hot."
After spending so much money and taking days to read every review I could find, I am severely disappointed.
