So unstable, unreliable

Summary: This was my first video card ever purchased for my rig back in 2011. Naturally I got it for the price, was around $200 during then, it has since gained a notorious reputation. Though it had problems in the beginning, I didn't think much of them and thought new drivers would fix it; man was I dead...
Pros: Was a modestly priced video card back in 2011, and is pretty quiet.
Cons: Not a big fan of thin, flaky, plastic fan blades. They feel so frail, one has to be cautious not to accidentally break one off when cleaning or handling.
Pros: 50% of the 2 boards I bought, for 2 systems, worked great! The other 50% has had buggy problems. Fortunately, even after almost 3 years, Gigabyte is taking the board back on an RMA. Hopefully it gets replaced.
Cons: Gigabyte doesn't have much to say about my issue. I have not used them before, so I can't really say it taints my decision to buy from them again. Agin, a pretty small pool of statistical analysis. ;-)
Summary: The video card worked fine and has been for the last few months. The only reason I gave this a lower rating was because that the original packaging is not included with the item. You get the video card and a CD (which isn't useful because you need to download the latest drivers from Nvidia anyway).
Summary: I have gone though all of the steps that have been suggested to make this card work, such as tweaking the card's voltage up slightly to balance the overclock, downclocking the card, updating the card's bios, using different nvidia drivers, including the 29x nvidia beta drivers.
Pros: The card plays nice with a i7-2600, playing games such as Deus Ex- Human Revolution and Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Beautifully on high settings
Cons: The card used to crash a lot, possibly due to OC voltage, possibly due to nvidia drivers, or some random hardware issue. Now, just over 8 months of usage, games and movies no longer work while using the card.
Summary: Good performing GPU but only lasted 2 yrs. And when I go to gigabytes Web site it says they have a 3yr warranty on video cards but when I put the serial number in it said it's out of warranty.
Excerpt: Я бы не советовал ее брать. Лучше возьмите аналог от Асуса без разгона. И дешевле и лучше будет. А выигрыш в производительности не большой. Я на замену взял ASUS ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5
Pros: Средняя цена. Почти все тянет на ура. Нормальный размер для такой видяхи.
Cons: Глюки драйвера на 99% у видеокарт из-за некорректного заводского разгона. Даже последний биос не всегда исправляет ситуацию. Помогает вручную повысить напряжение ядра. В нагрузке греется довольно сильно, до 85С градусов. Пищат дроссели как тут уже писали.
Excerpt: В итоге поменял на GV-N570OC посмотрим что будет с ней далее )))
Pros: Выше перечисленные отзывы писать не буду
Cons: - очень сильно греется, доходило до 90 град., играл всего то в Метро 2033; - сильный гул вентиляторов при большой температуре; - через месяц использования вылетел драйвер, установка свежей версии не помогло
