Pros: Noise levels are very low. Temperatures are also very low even under 100% load. I have pushed this card in and out of Games like BF4, Metro Last Light, Crysis 3, Mass Effect 3 and others all on Ultra in Eyefinity with 3 1920x1080 displays (Resolution 5760x1080) ...... smooth as budda!!! Temps remain in the 70s, fan noise is negligible. Incredible card.

The design of the card by Sapphire is delicious, the whole thing is so sleek and well thought out. Nicely crafted metal shroud with the orange/yellow accents. It looks best in hand. Online does not do justice.

Cons: None really with the card.

Would have maybe liked a little more showmanship (LED for the Sapphire logo maybe) and perhaps a backplate, but I suspect the backplate is not being used to enhance the cooling of the ram on the backside by not impeding any airflow whatsoever.

I was very annoyed that shipping took as long as it did. I would like to see faster options. If you are willing to pay this much for a GPU you can afford faster shipping. Come on

Other Thoughts: System Specs:

Cooler Master HAF-X
Gigabyte z77x-udh3
Core i7 3770K - OC(4.6ghz)
Corsair H110
16gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600
1300 Watt EVGA Supernova PSU (will be crossfiring later)
1 x Samsung EVO 250gb
2 x Seagate Barracuda 3tb
3 x ASUS vn247h-p
