Pros: + Runs almost as well as any other 660 Ti
+ Works well in SLI, no compatibility issues
+ Looks nice, not that it matters much
Cons: + Runs extremely hot - If I hadn't used EVGA Precision X or some other software to increase fan speeds at certain temperatures, this card will run 80 celcius when it's not in SLI, and 70 celcius when it is in SLI. Fortunately I use a software to bump up fan speed all the time, so now it's only about 10 degrees hotter than my other 660 Ti
+Extremely loud. Very irritating. I can always hear it over my game if it's above 45 celcius
Other Thoughts: The heat is not due to airflow issues. I have a Asus Z77 and a Corsair 500R with 7 case fun specifically positioned for GPU cooling. My bottom card, an Asus 660 Ti, should suffer if anything, because not as much air is running over it. It's due to the way EVGA designed the cooling in this card - It blows out the back, not the bottom or top. As a result, my ASUS card might be 40 degrees and this one might be 52 or so.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: + Very, very cool. Hasn't hit above 50 degrees in SLI running Crysis 3, Metro Last Light, etc.
+ So much better than my EVGA 660 Ti
+ Two fans
Other Thoughts: I bought this card to run in SLI with an EVGA 660 Ti. Now I regret my purchase of the EVGA and wish I had gotten two of these.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: + Runs high end games extremely well
+ Sleek looking for those of us with side panels
+ No driver problems
Cons: - Loud (easily audible when fan is at max (which seems to be 80%))
- Inefficient ventilation for my system (not open-air design, tries to vent heat out the back) ... and so ...
- ...Runs hot when at full load
Other Thoughts: I would have gotten the ASUS GTX 660 Ti version for the ventilation.
I am going to SLI it with an Asus 660 Ti soon and we'll see how it runs
