Really quiet, powerful
Pros: $200, its a steal. Very quiet even with 100% fan speed. Love the two green lights that illuminates on the 6 pin. Free diablo 3 mouse pad! :D
Cons: Heavy and big. Most graphic cards that I purchased includes a DVI to VGA or DVI to HDMI adapter, but this didn't, no biggie though, I didn't need it.
Overall Review: Got the last graphic card before it was discontinued as of 12/1/2013. I returned my MSI twin frozr gtx 670 just to get this with $50 rebate. MSI twin frozr is quiet but the fans run loud when I start up my computer, this Asus gtx 670 doesn't, VERY quiet.
Not as described
Pros: The box is very attracting, but it's a trap. Gold caps, more cool air.
Cons: Lots of CONS: The box specifically says SATA 3.0gb/s. BSOD first run. Underclocked ram: 1600mhz to 1333mhz. Board feels flimsy. After opening the box I see many white spots on the back of the board and a tiny scratch. 5 Voltage regulators while every FM2 motherboards have 8-10 regulators. FM2 socket was loose, I mean LOOSE. It bent several of my a10 5800k pins but I managed to fix it.
Overall Review: I suggest staying away from this motherboard. This my first experience using an ESC motherboard. I REALLY regret buying this motherboard from an upgrade MSI a75ma-E35. Do yourself a favor and get the MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 or other FM2 motherboards.
Really quiet, powerful
Pros: It's really quiet when I start up my computer. Love the Diablo 3 mouse pad it came with it!
Cons: Slightly weaker than MSI twin frozr gtx 670 stock but overclocks better. I'm not sure if this is a con but it did not include a VGA to DVI or the DVI to HDMI but no biggie, I won't be needing that.
Overall Review: I got the last one before it was discontinued on 12/1/2013. This graphic card is somehow far quieter than the MSI twin frozr gtx 670 which is a good thing. I returned my twin frozr gtx 670 just to get this.
Cheap Graphic card
Pros: Price It ran cool for me when I did a 3Dmark test.
Cons: Not sure if this is a con but I hear static sounds from the GPU when my computer starts up. The fan also spins 100% when I boot up for 1-2 seconds and it goes normal. The cooler looks kind of fragile as well, would recommend staying away from this GPU unless you're planning to change the cooler.
Overall Review: Might be going for HIS or powercolor HD7950. Asus is just too overpriced.....
Pros: Great fans, I returned the Cougar Vortex due to whining noises and decided to get the SP120's HP. The undervoltage cable was very useful to make the fans very quiet. I had to set the RPM to low on my motherboard though.
Cons: Loud when it's at full RPM, expected though. Mounting screws is kind of a mess, the rubber moves while screwing tightly.
Overall Review: These are best to mount on radiators. I'm currently using a h100i, stock fans were very loud and heard grinding noises so I sold it.
