Summary: Based on the NCIX reviews I bought this Nov 2012 to replace my ASUS GTX560TI. It died on me within 2 weeks while I was surfing online. No overclocking, tons of cooling, dust free, and not really playing anything graphic intense (GW2). Fortunately it died within 30 days so NCIX replaced mine but they were out of stock so I had to wait a few days. The replacement has been fine for the last 3 months. I'm just hoping this card will last me without having to warranty it.
Pros: -Awesome Performance, -Stock cooler isn't too loud, -Looks good
Cons: -Reliability issues?, -Price a little steep, -No lifetime warranty
Summary: First one was DOA, painless RMA and now on my 2nd, and it works like a dream I can play every game i own at max everything at 60+ FPS. The 4gb version is great, but im not sure about the advantages of the back plate. oh well. Well worth the money.
