Pros: Gold, Haswell ready. Quiet
Cons: Reviewed this before. Have had it about 4 months.
Now I realize it has crazy COIL WHINE
Pros: Very Fast.
Lots of overclocking headroom.
Compatible with waterblocks.
Cons: Reference cooler doesn't cool so well.
Other Thoughts: Having purchased the EVGA 780 FTW from newegg, I stepped up to the reference 780 Ti from EVGA.
Comparing both cards when overclocked, I see ~10fps increase with the Ti.
The reference cooler is extremely sturdy and looks good with LEDs but temps were hitting the 80's easy with a lot of fan noise. Not to mension it downclocks @ 70C.
Aside from a performance boost, I also wanted to put the Ti underwater. With the EK FC waterblock and backplate it runs stable at 1240MHz with max T=45C and is completely silent.
BF4, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, Blacklist, Metro LL, all run with highest details 1080P 80-144fps.
Haven't tested 1440P or higher, but I'm sure the Ti would hang. Would have been nice to see more than 3Gb ram.
If you buy this card, and you want to get the most out of your $700 purchase, do yourself a favor and put a waterblock on it. That's when it really starts to get fun!

can fit a variety of mb sizes.
Other Thoughts: Perfect for any budget build.
Looks aesthetically pleasing.
Don't apply too much pressure to any part of the chasis or something may bend, it's that flimsy.
Other than that, it's great for the price.
