Cons: Doesn't auto-install.
Other Thoughts: Happy i got it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great packaging graphics. And it is reasonably fast.
Cons: This sounds stupid, but watch your fingers around this sucker. The corners of the fan project above the surrounding bezel, and they are sharp corners on a knife-edge fan blade. (Don't ask me how i know this.) Now, a number of bandages later, i have an 8-bladed fan (it started with 9) that vibrates the heck out of the case. Even though you might argue it's my fault for having my fingers there, i was trying to position an auxiliary fan because of below. Now it sits 'til it's fixed somehow. Sorry, this is -2 eggs.
Secondly, this card runs pretty hot; folding makes it run 65c-67c compared to my other card (see below). It might be below the absolute max of the chip, but it's hot anyway. The heat management dumps more than half of the airflow back into the case (which caused the first issue: a vicious cycle). Dock another egg.
Thirdly, i also have a gtx470 (which i can easily oc 100mhz) in another machine and this 560ti is only slightly faster for the cost. So it loses another egg.
Other Thoughts: Shouldn't have fallen for all the hype on this card. EVGA usually makes good products.READ FULL REVIEW
