Pros: A great price for 1080p gaming that can play most games at Ultra settings at good frame rates. It's very silent and the GPU is mostly passively cooled when the temps are below 60c. Thanks to Nvidia's Maxwell architecture for decreasing power draw, it gives this card the extra headroom to be overclocked quite well.
Cons: There is a decent gap in performance between the GTX 960 and GTX 970. If you have the extra cash, go for the latter.
Other Thoughts: You may notice the R9 280x performing a bit better for a similar price, but if you're like me and likes to preserve energy, the GTX 960 is the way to go.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocking beast! The Devil's Canon revision of Haswell has made this baby run cooler, giving it more OC potential than the competition. I'm able to get this piece of silicon to 4.5Ghz at 1.2v, running around 30-40c idle and 60c in stress testing.
Cons: Sort of expensive.
Other Thoughts: Leave the uncore/ring core at stock(not auto since it will mess up the voltage in some cases). It doesn't add much performance compared to vcore.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great on my Phantom 410 case fan controller.
Cons: LEDs don't brighten all of the fins.
Other Thoughts: A bit louder than advertised but good nonetheless if you have a fan controller. This fan has also dropped my hard drive temperatures by almost 10c! Impressive.READ FULL REVIEW
