Summary: Great card, I bought this to replace a GTS 250 for Planetside 2. I get solid 60fps now and couldn't be happier. FWIW, I'm also running an i7 930 (an older i7) which keeps up just fine. Planetside had some CPU issues before but they've finally worked them out and the gameplay is smooth as butter now. Just make sure you have ~6GB of RAM.
Summary: This card is so little, yet so powerfull it can match or surpass the power of a GTX 770 if you know how to push it when overclocking. I bought this from amazon warehouse deals, labeled as used in good condition, and it is. In fact, it was smelling as new. It runs really cold, considering the size of the cooler system. Every game runs at 1080p max settings until the present date. And when not manually overclocked, I can't barely hear any noise from the fan.
Summary: I needed a decent card that would fit in my smaller case and Asus came through. According to some benchmarks I have looked at, this slightly outperforms the GTX 580. Great news. The fan is very quiet at idle and has a very clean sound even at high speed. No rattling or grinding. Well, maybe hard to tell because of the coil whine I have. Amazon sold me some other customers return as if it was new. Maybe they thought I wouldn't notice but I did.
Fantastic small form-factor GPU, well worth the price

Summary: Unbelievable power in a small package! It runs well with Linux and Windows, providing raw power to those applications which require intensive GPU resources (BOINC, etc.). I do not play "modern" games, so I cannot speak to its effectiveness in that area; however, for GPU processing, it works wonders... in a small form-factor.
Summary: Installed on a P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD motherboard inside a Silverstone SG-05 case with a Silverstone ST45SF-G PSU. The height of the video card made installing the 8-pin power connector from the PSU very, very tight. I am using an Intel I7-3770k processor and the power consumption, at idle, with just the integrated graphics was 45 watts. Once I added in the graphics card, idle consumption jump to 55 watts. Idle temp is 40 degrees celsius.
Summary: Guten Tag, ich habe dieses wirklich kleine Monster nun seit einem halben Jahr in meinem System verbaut. Ausschlaggebend für den Kauf war, der leise aber sehr effektive Lüfter, die geringe Länge von gerade einmal ca. 17 cm und natürlich die wirklich beachtliche Leistung. Unglaublich aber wahr, die Nvidia GTX 670 DirectCU Mini ist leistungsfähiger als die normale GTX 670 von Asus mit zwei verbauten Lüftern.
