Pros: It is a great card to get if you want to play any game out there today to just about max settings and are willing to sacrifice a few FPS for the added flare. The fans keep it below 73 at all times even under heavy load. The only time I've gotten it beyond 70 is when i'm overclocking it.
Cons: I am using the included OC software which is relatively easy to understand and it is over-volted to 1.2125V with the core set to 1170 and OC set to1235 with RAM set to somewhere around 6.7Ghz. This along with my i5 4690 gets me PC mark score around 5796 which is well above the average score the card has of around 4990. The hottest I've seen it hit under the load of Watch_Dogs and Arkham Origins has been roughly 73 C but roughly once a week the "Display Driver" crashes but then fixes itself within 2-3 seconds. Nothing huge seeing that my games pause themselves and all I have to do is click on the icon to resume. Just a heads up for OC junkies and perfectionists.
Other Thoughts: It came with everything you need to have fun and not break the bank. The heat sink is amazing and temps are always relatively low with even lower noise. Even with the display crash i still give it 5 eggs because I don't get those problems on stock settings. I just keep it overclocked because the added %17 boost is too good. Watch_Dogs is great and runs well on almost maxed settings without the OC and it runs at around 25FPS on maxed settings with the OC.READ FULL REVIEW
