Good solid product.

Pros: Quiet, affordable, well balanced card with good out of the box clock speeds and average temperatures.

Cons: Not reference card so impossible to water block.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this card for about a year now and have no major issues. Performance has been great. The cooler keeps the card at good temperatures for stock performance but I'm not sure would hold up if you try to push for more OC. My only issue is I bought this card with the intention of upgrading to SLI but with the card not being reference, and the only waterblock I have "seen" to fit this card being discontinued, it is safe to say I will not be running two of these together as the temperatures already reach as high as I would like them to go under full load. I take the blame for this mistake as I didn't research the product enough. However if you're interested in just using one card to handle ultra settings and 60 fps on any 1080p gaming then this is the card for you.

5/ 5

Pros: Have had this card for almost 1 year now and love it. The card is quiet and extremely fast with my set up. I am going to buy another here in the next few months, no need for more than 1 card if you are using only one monitor. Easily installed.

Cons: This card is not as visually pleasing as some other cards out there as far as the looks of the card.

Other Thoughts: One note is that the card is designed for a right side install, my tower was a left side install so my card is inverted but have had zero problems.

Coil whine is so bad

Pros: The graphics are beautiful indeed.
Price was on point.

Cons: The coil whine almost kills the purchase. It's that bad.

Other Thoughts: I'd purchase a different card if I could go back in time. It's not worth saving 50ish bucks.

Do NOT buy for a Mac Pro 5,1

Pros: great specs, easy to install

Cons: requires a 2nd power cable, and you can't get to the different boot screens on Mac (CMD-R at restart, Diagnostics, etc) without sending it in to have it flashed for Mac, which is nearly another $200

solid product

Pros: great spec out of the box
very high quality materials
feels solid and supports itself well when installed
looks nice with the white led
great stock cooling
has some good overhead to work with on the clocks

Cons: none really just some minor things like..
lack of software suite specific to the manufacturer.
and inability to change the led color. that's it.

Other Thoughts: awesome product, even with the high factory clocks there is still room to raise them a bit further. the cooling solutions works well and is fairly quiet even at full blast. i wish i could get the clocks a little bit higher, but only because i am really close to the top 100 for x2 sli on firestrike. that said, can't complain about top130 score..

High Quality 980

Pros: I upgraded from two AMD 7970 cards for the purpose of gaming on a 1440p, G-Sync monitor. The previous cards were having trouble pushing max settings at 1440p. I knew these cards could do it and I took a chance with this PNY card because of a great sale and rebate combo. First impressions of the card were great. There is no plastic except on the fan blades and the whole card just screams quality. The heatsink shroud is solid aluminum and it has a metal backplate, but it is not too heavy to cause sag when installed. The aluminum casing means it subtly reflects my case lights, which has a nice effect. The white LEDs on the fans have a nice, professional glow and shine softly into the heatsink. The card has a considerable factory overclock. I have not pushed them further, but I know they can handle higher voltages and overclock, potentially pushing them into 980ti territory. The large, ball bearing fans are very quiet. At maxmium speed, they are quieter than my Enermax and Corsair case fans. You can obtain a lifetime warranty by registering these cards on PNY's website.

Cons: Not many cons to mention so far, as I've owned it less than a month. I have these cards in SLI setup and the top card reaches 80C with stock fan profile. This is well within safe ranges, but I needed to configure a custom fan profile to keep it in line with the bottom card temperature. It was protected well enough in the box, but it was not encased in a static-free bag. I'm used to storing all electronics in these bags, so it was a bit of a "shock" to see it missing. I hope the pun is appreciated.

Other Thoughts: These cards in SLI are great for anyone wanting to push maximum settings at 1440p or even 4K settings. One card should be enough for 1080p gaming. With an i7 4770k, 16gb of Corsair Dominator Platinum 2400mhz RAM, I was able to achieve 11k in Firestrike Extreme 3DMark benchmark. Normal Firestrike benchmark right around 19k. My previous 7970 in Crossfire only achieved about 11k in Normal, so the performance boost is considerable. I'm able to achieve max settings in GTA5, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Battlefield 4. Nvidia says on their website that two of these cards can achieve "Uber settings + Gameworks" in Witcher 3 at 1440p. The PNY logo does not light up. I wondered this when viewing the product photos.

Great Graphics Card

Pros: I got this a few weeks ago while on sale and it is an awesome card, I am running great games with no trouble at all.

Awesome look to this card. I love the backplate and all metal shroud that encloses it.

Even at full use I have never seen the temperature break 60C, no coil whine or fan noise to speak of.

Lifetime warranty when you register the card

Cons: Connectors are less than ideal, but in no means a deal breaker at all.

Other Thoughts: This card doesn't seem to be too popular in builds but if you get get it at the right price it is an amazing product.
