Pros: Powerful, absolutely perfect for 3440 x 1440p. 60+ fps playing final fantasy XIV. ASIC of 77.5% and card boosts to 1380 right out of the box. Decent overclock to 1465 with boost. With voltage increased, card will get to 1490 max boost clock. Don't really need it though, so I just run factory settings. Haven't experienced any coil whine other than at some loading screens. Fps cap fixes this.
Cons: These cards run hotter than smaller Maxwell chips. Usually runs at 65 C to 70 C while playing games, not too bad. However, I run an aggressive fan curve so fans are at 80% at this temp. Definitely a little loud with fans this high. I expected this so it doesn't bother me. Just keep in mind when purchasing. I also don't recommend using the gigabyte oc software, not nearly as good as afterburner.
Overall Review: Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I would recommend this product. The cons I listed aren't major concerns for me. Currently waiting for EKWB to release a waterblock this card. Shouldn't be too much longer.
