Summary: Pros: Stays cool (see other thoughts) Looks good fans are not that loud Other Thoughts: Card idles at about 40°c under load about 75°c under stock fan setting. Used MSI afterburner to set custom fan speed. Max of 60°c under load. Got it overclocked to 925/1475 and scored lower on bench mark.
Summary: runs everything! OC'd to the max! no issues, runs cool and flawless! BF3 ultra/high and skyrim on ultra pushing 40fps. Very happy with the card hope the seller will have another for this price soon i will buy!
Summary: This card was a fantastic upgrade from my Radeon HD 5830. It sucks a decent amount of power at load (I think it maxes at 120 Watts), and certainly warms up...but it operates flawlessly. Driving two monitors with a bare desktop, it idles at about 50 degrees celsius. Under heavy load, it peaks around 80 degrees celsius, and the fan starts to wind up.
Excellent Product... Perhaps not the best choice fo Micro ATX

Summary: This is a great card able to crank any game I have tested it with so far to its max capabilities and still isn't making this card sweat. A note for those potential buyers I would be weary of utilizing this case with a Micro ATX case as though I was able to get it in the box, with it functioning perfectly fin, I fear I will be cutting wires and potentially mangling the box if I ever want to take it out.
Summary: I ordered this on Nov. 16th and amazon lost my package in transit so i called for a refund but ended up getting a replacement order shipped to me on the 18th i opened it up it was a great looking card, i installed it to my pc booted right up download latest drivers and everything seemed great loaded up my new copy of nfs the run and omg artifacts all over the screen restarted the pc the same thing happened i tried every game i own the same thing so please do your self a...
Summary: I purchased this card as an upgrade to my GEFORCE 9800 GT, looking forward to Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Batman, etc. coming out. I wanted to get an Nvidia card, I've always favored them; they look slick, their demos, and prevalent advertising, but my ASUS P6T SE didn't support SLI, just CrossfireX. I really wanted to get a GTX 560, but I thought I might want to do a dual card someday. So I took a chance with this card. I'm not disappointed in any way.
Summary: Great GPU for the money, of course there even cheaper now. If your a bench mark person you'll want the 2gig of memory version for all the score's you can muster. This card will do three displays at one time, plus there is not many games that can slow it down, so if you love to game on the computer then you'll love this card as well! Older versions can be switched to the 6970 bios with the flick of a switch. Price is great, what more can you say.
