Pros: Running good. Idle gpu temp is around 43C with the fan at 40%. Seen it go up to 63C with the fan at 70% when playing in my games. My software allows the fan to increase with the core temp.
also - im using driver 290.53 dated 21-DEC-2011 (most current availiabe as of 26-JAN-2012) and that driver has stopped responding twice when I was playing World of Warcraft. There was no crash, WoW just minimized to my desktop, then after a minute the driver recovered and the game was working.
Other Thoughts: When I needed to ask EVGA a question, I was live with there rep after being on the phone for about 2 minutes, which is incredible fast, and they knew exactly how to help me.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: -Very fast

Other Thoughts: did lots of research, decided that samsung hard drives have a far less failure rate than any other brand I looked atREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed on an EVGA Z68 F.T.W. motherboard for two weeks now. Used a Cooler Master Hyper N520 cput fan. Not a single crash/blue screen or anything else negative.
TEMPS AT IDLE:
CORE 0: 28C
CORE 1: 29C
CORE 2: 31C
CORE 3: 28C
TEMPS UNDER A STRESS TEST LOAD:
CORE 0: 58C
CORE 1: 60C
CORE 2: 62C
CORE 3: 59C
Cons: I did not use the stock heatsink/fan but purchased a better one.
Other Thoughts: My core 2 runs a tiny bit hotter than the other 3 cores, but probably cause I didnt get a good amount of thermal grease over that core. (this was the first time I have ever installed a cpu heatsink fan)READ FULL REVIEW
