Pros: Packs a punch, silent., sweet shroud and backplate.

Cons: A bit on the long side.

I came from a HIS 7950 and thought that was a silent card. I couldn't have been more wrong. One of the advantages of having 3 fans and a massive heat sink is silence, my case was in its' test bench configuration and I could not hear this thing even when gaming.

Speaking of gaming, this is THE perfect card for 1080p maxed out gaming. I can play GTA 5, Far Cry 3/4 and any other game I throw at it in full HD and pull 50fps+ (my cpu is holding this card back somewhat, different reviews with i5 and i7 cpus pull out 10-12fps more)

On to the only con of this card, its length. Not the PCB but the heat sink, it's huge, it actually sticks out a couple inches past the PCB. I guess with great cooling comes great heat sink size, at least it is covered by a really nice looking fan shroud and back plate which also acts as passive cooling for some of the memory chips on the backside of the PCB.

All in all I would highly recommend this card to anyone who is running 1080p games and wants a quiet card that stays cool while remaining dead silent.
