Summary: Very quiet, I can run most games on maximum settings and not have to worry. Running BF4, SRIV, Dota 2 all on max settings with no problems. Highly recommend this if you're on a budget. Plus, I got Hitman: Absolution, Saints Row IV, and Deux Ex: Human Revolution for free with this GPU.

Not cool and not quiet BUT IT'S THE FASTEST OF ALL

Summary: This card gets pretty hot while gaming but it performs great... With my I5 3570k and this oc'ed to about 1.1ghz I can get 120+ frames per second in bf3. When gaming with the card at 1.1ghz it can reach temps of 75C with 100% fan and a ambient temp of around 23C
Summary: Bought a few of these for Litecoin mining. So far they've been working like champs! The ability to adjust voltages is a pretty awesome feature here because at its default voltage of 1.25V, temps would get as high as 94C. Any higher and it would start throttling the clock speed to drop the temps down.
Pros: Cheap when on sale. Not voltage locked even though you have to use Sapphire Trixx to modify it.
Cons: Fans a bit loud at full speed, though still bearable.
Summary: I purchased this product because it was one of the few video card options I had to upgrade my Mac Pro (mid-2012). The card is a little expensive for what it is, but when you need something Mac compatible you pay the price. I currently use this card primarily for video editing and graphics creation and it has given me a good boost in performance. I would recommend this to anyone working with Premiere, FCPX, or After Effects who wants a bump in their Mac Pro's performance.
