Summary: This was an upgrade to a Gigabyte Windforce 2 GTX 650 Ti 2 GB OC card. That card in itself was great, but wouldn't play games to the caliber I wanted. I had built the PC for a customer who wanted an all-around affordable gaming rig, but after about 6 months, wanted to upgrade, so it went from an i5-3470 to an i7-3770k and a GTX 650 Ti to a GTX 670! Quite a jump. We are probably familiar with the GeForce GTX 670 card.
Summary: Got this for my son. He likes to game but did not want to spend $1000 for a video card. It was a sweet spot for price and performance. Allowing tweaking to configure it best on the games he plays were a big plus. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a mid range card.
Summary: I would first of all like to mention that I was considering this card against the GTX 770 and the AMD HD7970. Both of the other options are the latest generation video cards, though with some careful research I found that this video card was actually keeping up to it's competition in every aspect. This video card has been bench-marked by a lot of websites and has received outstanding scores compared to the next generation video cards.
Summary: I actually just sold this thing after owning it for a year. Excellent quality and very fast. The ASUS DirectCUII line has a very high quality cooler and the components are higher quality than the NVIDIA parts.
Summary: This GPU is huge! The quality of the materials is awesome (it looks you could use this board as a hammer and it would still work!). The ASUS software for overclocking is also pretty easy to use.

Summary: Review for: ASUS GTX670 670-DC2-2GD5 (with Direct Cool II Card Cooler) This card is very well reviewed by the silent/quiet PC community. It is a great VALUE in NEAR SILENT HIGH-END video cards. I got a lemon card my first time with a tiny clicky noise in one of the fans so I returned it, so listen closely soon after getting it for an easy exchange.
Summary: I have had this card for over a year now. It finally came down to a price I could afford a second. With SLI, I can run every game at max and not skip a beat. This card stays incredibly cool, while not pulling excessive power. It is also ridiculously quiet, my case fans make more noise. With the crazy fans you'd think otherwise, but it is just well made all around. As an avid computer gamer, this card has exceeded every expectation I have had.
Summary: Glad prices are dropping. Overclocking ability is great, voltage is easily unlocked to 1.212. Though im not sure how that might affect the warranty. Previous poster, the tools are out there to unlock the keplers voltage and flash the rom to open the fans upto 100% instead of the current limit of 80%. The overclocks can be flashed in the rom as well so you dont have to fool with the tweak software. A good deal on a tuneable card.
