Summary: I like the card, despite it being louder than most 560s. There have been a few problems though. The state it arrived at my house in was dismal. The retail box was simply put into a box four times it's size and shipped. Meaning it rattled around in there A LOT. Very bad for a graphics card. Not to mention the exterior box was completely crushed. Then after having it a couple of months, I began to have significant coil whine.
Bought new, defective, would not load drivers: SEE UPDATE
21 April 2013
Summary: Bought new end of March (2013), worked okay with two displays for a short time, said updated drivers were available, downloaded them but driver installation failed. Now no drivers, device not present, Error 28. W8 "update drivers" failed. Now only one display at reduced resolution, partial screen. Tech support said to uninstall and reinstall, did that three times, same result. Tech support finally said "it must be defective" so return.
Summary: This is my second of this model, bought for an SLI setup. Both cards easily run 20% over stock (with appropriate case air-flow) thanks to their beefed up cooling. Only a shame that the 560s won't do tri or quad SLI.
Summary: Got the card earlier than anticipated from Amazon.com but when I opened the box, it was the wrong card. Currently returning this and waiting for the correct Item to come in. May be if the item comes in correctly I'll give this more stars. For now, BE CAREFUL. The price is too good to be true for this item. Still no excuse for false advertisement though.
Summary: For those looking for a steal - this is NOT a Ti card. It is the 560 TOP, which means you get a massive factory overclock at an extra 10% premium to the price. You get what you pay for - the 560Ti TOP can be had for 250$ here. The pricing point in my opinion is ideal, since it just beats a stock 560Ti, at 25-30$ less. As for the card itself - the ASUS thermal solution is, as usual, great - temps are 33-60c.
Summary: The truth buy this card used in this way, knew beforehand was not the TI version, so I'm happy with my purchase, it is a card that has a good quality / price!, Manages to play BF3 on ultra graphics without any problems , the truth I am very happy with it. A very important point is the dissipation, and fence works well! is a very cool card that comes with factory OC (since acquired the top version).
Summary: I bought this card thinking its a GTX 560 Ti as the title of the card says so.. But when i got the card, i found out that its only a GTX 560 card which is overclocked to GTX 560 Ti speeds... So beware before buying.. they should change the title of this card..
