Summary: Great card, only NEG about is the fans will develop an insane rattle so bad i had to rip the VaporX cooler off the card and Ziptie 2 120MM corsair high performance fans to it. NO more rattle, cooler temps, and the GFX chip die no longer catches on fire while i play FFXIV on maximum.
Summary: Couple of things: 1. This card is a beast, and will play just about any game that you throw at it, at 1920x1080 on ultra. No questions asked. However, the performance, seems to drop off when you add resolution - can still run just about any game at 5760x1080 just have to drop the settings a little to keep the frames up. 2.
Summary: Been running this for many months now, and it's absolutely awesome. Could be little quieter (hence 4 stars instead of 5), but overall playing all my games on max is running very smoothly and looks great.
Summary: I have two of these in my rig and the fps at ultra playing battlefield4 is always around 80 fps.lucky for me i have a cooler master haf x full tower case that has huge fans. good thing because whenever i play battlefield 4 on ultra for a few hours theses cards heat up so much that my room gets warm. they haven't burnt out or crashed yet but it makes me worried. i may have just gotten a bad card however. but if there all like this i hope you have some good fans.
Summary: I've been using this card for about a week and I have been mostly impressed with the performance of the card. It runs fairly quiet for having two huge fans, and I've never seen it go above 50% fan speed even after running Crysis 3, and Bioshock Infinite at max settings (single display) for a couple hours. My first card was DOA, it ran windows fine but had to be under-clocked to run any sort of GPU intensive programs.
Summary: I bought 2 of these cards two months apart, great card playing all the latest games with it. I have a 2560x1440 resolution so one card isnt enough, I usually get 15-30fps on crysis 3 at that resolution with a second its about 60-70fps. it takes 3 slots and if your not careful the first card might choke off airflow. I used to get crashes because of overheating anything above 72c with fans at 100% and stock OC.
Summary: The card is good but the cover is plastic and for the price could have been metal. Some of the monitoring softwarez wont show the 6GB so you need to check it in GPU Z or Windows performace tools. Its there but some programs dont recognize it. So dont worry about that. Takes 2 slots worth of space in your Rig. Maxes most games , so far no noise or heating issues. Tested BF 3 at 70FPS easy and CS GO at constant 250+FPS. Box has all the accesories you need.
Summary: Very good card, runs all my games perfectly (BF3, DayZ Standalone, Batman Arkham Origins, Company of Heroes 2...) However, Very noisy, and my card makes a very strange sound when play Rome 2 Total War... although that game is rubbish and I don't touch it anymore.
