Buggy and troublesome, not great tech support

Summary: Built a new computer and put in the video card. I was excited to use the mini-HDMI port to hook it up to my TV as well, but it never really worked right. Had to have a very complex starting sequence in order to have any picture on the TV, then it would flicker in and out. Also would cause the TV to freeze and buzz loudly. So, abandoned that. After awhile, my computer would freeze up and the video card fan would kick up to 100% (very, very loud, BTW).
Summary: Card worked fine for the first few months. Then my monitors would occasionally go black and display a "no signal" message before recovering. In the last week, my monitors would go black and my system would reboot. Yesterday the card died and my computer would only start in safe-mode. Installing a backup card fixed the problem. Waiting to see how EVGA handles the warranty process, but can't really recommend this card.
Summary: The card was very quiet and had great color balance (calibrated than my old ATI HD 4850 with my HP LP2475w). The problem was, with this card, my computer took forever to start, and crashed within the first half hour any time I played Civilization 5. I tried two copies of the card, and both had the issues. I tried different drivers as well.
Great card if you can stand, I say IF YOU CAN STAND THE NOISE

Summary: Functionally, this is a great card as it performs really well, with excellent graphics. On the down side, it is not quiet. My case is well ventilated, yet the fans on this card spin up to a noticeable noise level way too easily. I find myself continually annoyed with the noise level. It's the loudest of any motherboard, case, or graphics card fans I've owned.
Summary: I bought this card to replace my 9400GTS. At first, I had alot of problems with this card, like games loading very slowly, freezes, etc. Then I upgraded my computer(basically brand new comp) and those problems went away. After using this card for about 1 month I am still having problems with flickering, and anomolies in games. It might be a driver issue but I don't know.
Summary: The card is great, but the special offer of a free copy of Tom Clancy's HAWX2 game is misleading. The bundled HAWX2 promotion for this card is to be fulfilled by AMAZON by email of a download code after purchase, but their customer service pawns the problem off to EVGA against the terms of the promotion located here. [...] Bottom line, be careful with bonus content promised at a later days (7-10 days in my case) as amazon will just try to weasel out of the deal.
Summary: Card was working great, for about a year and half, sure there was some flickering sporadically, and the desktop kept re-sizing itself every couple hours or so since it was installed, but was fine otherwise. Smelled burning plastic today, then my screen went black before I could turn it off. Opened up my gaming case (which is using significant internal cooling on its own), and found my video card FUSED to my mother board via melting circuit board.
