Powerful card 6/27/2018 8:01:43 AM

Pros: Fantastic card as scaled very well over the years. Was also able to get decent clocks out of it.

Cons: Biggest issue with this was the noise and temp that it had. While it was relatively cool, mid 70's for running the fan had to be running 65-70% range which was loud at least compared to the competition.

Overall Review: Over the 3 1/2 years I owned this card it was fantastic and one of the longest cards I've owned before replacing. Did 1080p to 4k gaming with some limitations. As well some VR too.

Was good while it lasted... 1/20/2018 11:41:46 AM

Pros: Was fast and played games well during the product warranty lifespan...

Cons: Product always ran incredibly warm, not in how hot the GPU reported, but in how much heat it produced, and eventually the cooling solution failed. In a well ventilated (and often cleaned) NZXT Phantom Full ATX case this GPU would routinely produce enough heat in chassis to warm the sides of the case to bare touch from the outside. It was loud, and though the dual fan cooling solution was able to keep the GPU temps in check it was obvious at how hard the fans had to work to accomplish this, and astounding at the amount of heat the GPU would dump into the case. Having owned multiple high end GPU's over the years (including a dual GPU GTX 295) I can confirm that this card dumped more raw heat than anything before or since...

Exactly one month and one day past the end of the product warranty the GPU had the front fan fail during gaming, GPU overheat and shut down, and has artifacted and been unstable since. Front fan still fails to spin, and having temporarily used another fan to ensure stable temps the GPU itself seems to have taken damage from the failure of the fan in the first place.

Being outside of warranty there was not much to do but to write it off...

Overall Review: I still have the card, and original packaging, in like new condition if someone from Asus would like to help me warranty this item. Sadly, as it stand now, I have had 5 products from Asus die on me over the years (this card, and 4 motherboards variously dating back to socket 478), and though I still like them as a brand they are sadly not high on my list of reliability...

Been using for 3 years and love it 5/21/2017 8:32:36 PM

Pros: Handles most AAA games smoothly
Sexy aesthetics
Video outputs are nice in variety
The dual bios is useful for casual gaming with older games with lesser reqs. The silent gaming BIOS is preferred for older games.

Cons: Does get hot
My card isn't a very good overclocker
high fan speed does whine a bit

Overall Review: I don't mind the extra heat. I have a small apartment and it has actually made a difference on the bill on a positive note.

Great product. 12/21/2015 4:23:45 PM

Pros: Handles all graphics well, especially in crossfire.

Cons: Occasionally locks up if room isn't cooled and generates a ton of heat, make sure room is cooled.

Overall Review: I would say you have to be a higher end used if using in crossfire. Have mine set up in a corsair case with water cooled processor and conditioned air to room. Can run all games with full settings, but will be a little noisy and generate heat. Easy to install, but had to do a fresh install to windows 10 instead of upgrade. My three year rig, easy.
