Summary: This is a great card, the only complaint I have is that (and this might just be because of my setup) if it's just barely torqued in a certain way one of the fans rubs against the metal fan housing. Not a major issue though.
Summary: Other than the initial headache i had with these they have been a dream and i even bought 2 for another build of mine which hasnt had a single crash since i burnt everything in.
Pros: The things perform vastly better than my old gtx 580. Max fps in anything i play, arkham city kingdoms of amalur, wow, league of legends, farcry. Hostestly i was gonna get a titan, but i am more than happy i went $500 less and saved the money and still got 2 cards in sli.
Cons: This card had some major stabilit issues when it was first released. I bought it soon after it came out thinking it would be on par with all the other 660tis id played with. The thing is, i had to run msi combustor for a good 72 hours STRAIGHT to get these things to become stable. Oddly enough i ...
Summary: History of my graphics cards: ATI Radeon HD 5750 (Sapphire Vapor-X) <-- too slow, perfectly quiet, not overclockable Nvidia EVGA GTX 560 <-- cheap, but not fast enough, too loud this card <-- perfect on all counts
Pros: Fast card overall. This is the highest clocked 660 Ti I could find. It can hit higher clocks with 120% power target and remain completely stable (using EVGA Precision X v3.04). This should put it at the performance level of the 670, a card that costs $100 more. This card smoothed out my framerate...
Cons: My only complaint was that a couple of times the fans seems to howl and make weird noises. It only happened twice though during Crysis. I think some of my case's cables may have been in the way or some vibration was translating through my case. It hasn't happened again, so I'm not too worried abo...
Pros: Very stable even at high resolutions. Low heat and noise, and the short card length is a huge plus for space inside the case, air flow and for mid size cases if you want it in a LAN Party type rig. Great performance in a shorter card, Zotac quality delivered as is the Zotac standard.
Cons: lack of OC software, or any other software other than a generic driver
Summary: Took off an egg for the crashing issue, but after "pre-crashing" the card is stable.
Pros: Really good card, the attractive offer with Borderlands 2 got me interested. So far it's been fairly stable, overclocking with ZOTAC Firestorm obviously doesn't work as stated in previous reviews, but MSi Afterburner works well enough. Very sizeable upgrade from my old AMD card, though not as use...
Cons: Dissatisfied with one element: upon first boot of my computer, I have to "pre-crash" the card. What I mean is on the game first booted on my system, the game crashes. However, when relaunching the game or another game, the card is completely stable. I don't know why this is happening and I've tri...
Summary: Replaced a Zotac 430 with this puppy and its been worth every penny thus far. I will admit the primary reason that won me over was Borderlands 2 included which I would've bought eventually.
Pros: Small enough to fit into a small and/or oddly setup mini-atx case, noise and heat is minimal thus far, plays any thing at maxed high/ultra settings (though have to wait to get a full 1080p monitor), and Borderlands 2 code came in the package as advertised.
Cons: Did not recognize most recent installed Nvidia drivers during hardware install, not a huge deal but would've shaved off ten minutes.
Great Card, extremely short form factor, kind of loud.

Summary: As you might expect, the GTX 660 Ti is a great card. I can run any game available at the highest settings. I purchased the Zotac over other options due to the short length on the card. It's one of the few that you can squeeze into a small case.
Summary: I took one egg due to the zotac overclocking software not being very compatible to the new 600 series cards, but its just a theory, if people are getting 705mhz clock speed WITHOUT Firestorm, its false advertising and I hope they fix this soon.
Pros: Smaller, sleeker and overall better design, fans have a steel guard instead of the plastic on the 560 AMP! edition. Runs much cooler and faster than my old 560 it replaced, 3Dmarked in the 7k where the 560 3dmarked me in the 4.5k. Overall a great little card, much faster frames, even though it "t...
Cons: Doesnt work well with the previous GTX 500 series Zotac software, the firestorm resets the core clock down to 705mhz vs the 1000+ its supposed to be set at. Still ran much faster than my overclocked 560 which was at 1006mhz via Firestorm. I believe the Firestorm program that came with the older A...
Summary: Firestorm WILL RESET the core speed, be warned. But it will help with restoring the core speed on the card, but the boost speed doesnt work with firestorm whatsoever. nvidia drivers need to get better, I didnt blame the card for this but the drivers themselves keep crashing games randomly, it...
Pros: Small, compact and cool looking design, smaller than my 560 AMP! it replaced. Much quieter, and much cooler than the previous card. The card works much better than my 560 by a lot, getting a 3dmark score in the 7k than the previous 4k due to the massive amount of cores in the 600 series vs. 500 s...
Cons: not fully compatible with the firestorm overclocking software from the previous zotac cards. Ends up resetting the core clock speed, but even at 705mhz its still faster than my 1009mhz overclocked 560 AMP!. Removed an egg because of the reset speed of the factory advertised speed on the card.
Excerpt: Пользуюсь три дня. О покупке не жалею. Кому не хватает мощности - не ждите от изначально бюджетной карты невозможного
Pros: Неплохая производительность при неплохой цене. Классический мейнстрим. Хорошая прога firestorm в комплекте - регулировка частот и охлаждения.
Cons: Сильно греется. При нагреве в играх- шумит порядочно. Без доп охлаждения разгонять страшно. Работает на номинале. В современных играх хватает пока. Но через год без разгона уже не вытянет новинки
