Summary: 10 months ago I purchased this card. After a month of tinker testing found that a voltage of 1087 shows a 5% increase in performance over zotac default. Of course altering voltage settings voids warranties.
Pros: The card takes a high overclock! So high Zotac is trying to kill it with their bios!
Cons: The bios is buggy and the software engineers at Zotac have little clue what they are doing. Card comes with default 1150 volt, which actually hurts performance....giving same results as if it were clocked at 900mhz. Artifacts...Pixel and texture loads....and it hits temps near 90c on a 5 fan well...
Summary: Since the fan is limited at 75%, temps under a full gaming load from BF3 can get into high 90°C. I have edited the card's bios to unlock the fan to 95% (100% too loud, no cooling difference). At 95% speed the temp rarely gets above 80°C.
Pros: Fast card since it is factory overclocked, meets stock GTX 570. Quiet: the card's fan is limited at 75%.
Cons: Gets really hot. Because the fan is limited to 75%, it gets too hot (but stays quiet if you like that). It is also showing serious signs of degradation.
Summary: Dont mind paying big bucks for hardware but I want the best and headaches free. Serving as active duty does not give me much time to spend troubleshooting or returning hardware. Building a new system this week and I hope I have better luck next time with Newegg
Pros: Decent price for the card. Runs most games Nice design
Cons: Gets extremely hot Card Claims to run Crysis but it crashes alot with all versions of the game. have to run low to be able to play Fan is extremely loud and makes loud Tick Tick noise that wont go away until I stop playing game
Summary: I purchased this card to run in SLI with an existing EVGA GTX560 Ti I had lying around. Since my monitor is Displayport-only and this Zotac card seems to be the only Displayport-enabled GTX560 Ti available anywhere, it was the obvious (only) choice.
Summary: End of story. A companies bad part they should pay for shipping both ways and replace the part. That's if they want to keep customers. That's just IMO. I will not buy from Zotac is they do not take care of their customers.
Pros: CARD IS AMAZINGLY FAST! Battlefield and Skyrim run like a charm. Pleased with performance. Would love to run two of these.
Cons: Card started to die slowly. As I'm playing Battlefield 3 (BF3) I noticed my FPS (Frames) were dropping like crazy. So I lowered the graphics. Same result. So that night I didn't think anything of it. Well the next day I attempt to bootup and now i have no video no nothing. Swap video card and vid...
Summary: was pretty dissapointed the promo code doesn't work and how horrible the customer service was from Zotac. Card works fine, but the support was bad.
Pros: Great graphics card, runs SC2 on all max with ease, looks nice
Cons: runs hot. promo code for the free game doesnt work for me. Customer support is really bad/thinks I'm an idiot. 11:59Me: is there a number i can call? 12:00Jon: it would be routed to me 12:00Jon: Im the only person available to receive calls really? Please don't tell me Zotac employs one customer ...
