Pros: Looks great
Stays very cool
Other Thoughts: Mine is bf3 stable at 1254mhz. that's a huge overclock. and at this core clock it still stays at 65c. love this card!
price is still high at 500 but is still worth it in my opinion.
Pros: Solidly Built
Great Cooler design
Comes with Backplate
Cons: Long Card but that is to be expected
Other Thoughts: I have overclocked this card using EVGA Precision to +80 on the core clock and +450 on the vram. This gives me the boost speeds of 1241mhz core clock and 6916mhz vram. This overclock is battlefield 3 stable and my temps sit at 65c with a custom fan profile. This makes this gtx 680 just as fast as the gtx 770 if not faster. I was very suprised i was able to overclock the Vram this far as it is just about to the 7000mhz of the new gtx 770 which has the fastest vram ever used on a GPU. The card also has a quiet fan. The only sound it makes is a slight sound of air moving. No wines, grinds, hums or anything of the sort.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: this cooler looks and feels like a great quality product. the tubing is large and seems unlikely to crack. installation wasn't to bad on my 1155 mobo. fan is somewhat quiet. looks really really good.
Cons: mounting screw holes strip easily. I came from a hyper 212 EVO and this thing cools the exact same as the EVO on my stock i5 3570k. idle is 30c and full load in prime 95 is 50-54c. if you have room for the hyper 212 cooler just get that as its so much cheaper and actually quieter. I do still like this cooler though.
Other Thoughts: may try adding another fan to drop temps even more. I also have the rad fan pulling air from outside and pushing it into my case.READ FULL REVIEW
