Hot

Pros: This video card in my computer could run skyrim+infinite view distance and 30 other mods in the background while playing other games and tab smoothly between them without issues. If it was in stock I would buy another one. Hoping to buy an upgraded version soon on my next computer build.

Cons: Size was bad for my case. Bought a new case and had no issues. I bit sticky to get put in but a solid connection without any issues. Was still very heavy and I used some support(cut shoe string) to keep it more balanced in the new case I bought.

Other Thoughts: Weight was high and needed support or a specific case which I was not knowledgeable about.

The best GPU I have ever owned so far.

Pros: Whole 'nuther level of stability. Approximately 50,000 hours of medium to intense use and still works.

Cons: It becomes obsolete.

Other Thoughts: Ok. I built my very first OpenCL server in 2010. I only used one of these as they were almost $200 back in the day and I was young and broke. This server would start serving and the GPU would get up to 100 C and it would just sit there all day. Days turned into weeks, months, years... The OpenCL server became obsolete and was converted into a desktop PC, the disk drive in the desktop PC finally died, it's grossly obsolete, and now I think Home Theater PC is in its near future.

Card is a beast

Pros: Card is easily OC-able to over 1Ghz

Stays under 73 degrees under extended max load in a case with an air-cooled processor.

Nickel-sintered copper piping! Most other cards that show off copper heat-pipes don't sinter them so it sells more, however as the copper is exposed to the moisture in the air it will slowly corrode.

I'm glad that ASUS builds quality products and lets them sell themselves to discerning customers.

Cons: Is very heavy, and I worry for my motherboard, though it doesn't seem to sag too badly, and not any worse than when I first installed it.

It's so big that if your case only has one intake fan, and is located near the bottom of the tower, not much cool air will get to your processor. This is only an issue if you're running air-cooled.

Other Thoughts: I think this was the last model of DC card ASUS made with that solid aluminum back-plate, which does radiate a little bit of heat, and makes the card feel indestructible and stable. I could've gotten a little more performance for my money, but I'll go for reliability any day of the week. This line of non-reference cards rules.

I was very happy

Pros: The graphics were incredible and even has a cool option to view the speeds and lets you know everything is running great.

Cons: Well it just stopped working three month into it and i tried everything to get it to work so I dont lose out on the money I put in. Tried calling the number it had there and no answer... I felt robbed. Was thinking about getting two so i can run crssfire but I will not be purchasing from here anymore

Other Thoughts: everything else I bought worked great, only lost 200 out of the 1600 invested in it

2/ 5

Pros: Very nice design. Runs fairly cool and quiet.

Cons: I had a budget of no more than $200 when I bought this card and went with this one after seeing benchmarks where others have OC'd it. Well, I recently started trying to overclock the card and found myself very limited due to the voltage tweak option not showing up. After completely reinstalling drivers, BIOS', and OC softwares, i still had zero luck. Started searching forums and found that many others had the same problem I did. Very disappointed that I have a $200 card that I am unable to take advantage of all of its features.

Love this style card

Pros: Very self supportable card for low tech builders, while having options for overclocking and high end gaming if you get two of these babies.

Cons: Got this card for a neighbor build, just finished two weeks ago (month after purchase of course) and the fan was loud, and popped up a message saying fan was faulty. Fan went out completely yesterday, making card almost useless if it can't cool. Once again, a great deal on a refurb ending up wasting over $200 and much of my time.

Other Thoughts: The guys 'in the back' for Newegg here and affiliates should REALLY start install testing refurbished items BEFORE putting up for sale. Many if not all of your negative feedbacks would be avoided this way.

Worked fine then died after 15 months

Pros: worked fine for 15 months, got a 7.8 on the Windows Experience Index.

Cons: After 15 months it locked up my desktop on my computer. Upon reboot, no signal to monitors, loud beep from Asus Crosshair V and the VGA red LED was stuck on solid.

Other Thoughts: Asus was nice enough to issue an RMA and repair, however when it came back it had the same symptoms it left with. I'm not paying another $15 shipping so I'll chose another vendor's card this time. For now the outdated Asus 9600 works fine but at 384 MB of video RAM, the spash screen for the BIOS is visibly smaller. 6.8 on WEI.

Just a thought

Comments: I just have one thing with these very sleek, well designed cards, and that is that in most cases, depending on how the motherboard mounts, the cards have to be installed fan side down. What is the point of having a nicely designed fan unit, if you can't even see it? I also think the card would be more secure in the case if it wasn't mounted upside down.
