Pros: *The card is very powerful, as one would expect from a 680.
*The cooling on it is wonderful, after playing hours of Battlefield 3 and Planetside 2, the highest temp it got to according to the ASUS GPU monitor, was 47 degrees C.
*The PCB cover thing in the back matches perfectly with the Z77 Sabertooth motherboard by ASUS.
*Large improvement from a GTX560
Cons: This card is very large in more then one way:
*Even with a full tower case, the length of the card should be noted.
*It is a 3 slot graphics card, unless you have a really mean case and motherboard, I don't think anyone would be SLI-ing one of these.
*It is also kind of heavy, but ASUS listened to their customers from previous cards and have implemented this kind of bracket that get extra support from the backplate and disperses it along the length of the card.
Pros: Runs BFBC2 on high, with great FPS. WAYYYY better any console.
Cons: I messed up when installing and flipped the PSU power connecters and it blue screen my comp after playing games for a couple of hours. I shut everything off and fixed my problem and so far after countless hours of gameplay, not a single isssue since.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, comes with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: This case is really big. You can fit anything in here.
This case also has good cooling, which is a great plus.
All of the fans are quite.
The fan controls are neat. They allow you to install a lot of fans
Cons: The front USB 3.0 are just extenders to plus into the back of your mobo. They aren't additions, but oh well. Doesn't bother me, as it just adds convenience. Some might be tricked and its something to look at.
The cables for the from controls all together are kinda bundled weirdly. Adds some stress when putting everything together.
Other Thoughts: My build:
Thor V2 full tower case.
