Runs a little on the warm side

Pros: Good card out of the box.

Cons: GPU runs hot.

The card can run anything I throw at it as long as the gpu stays somewhat cool. Even with a good airflow my temps were running about 65c. occasionally it would hit 70c and the card would crash. I switched from the stock cooling to an EK-VGA Supremacy waterblock and it now does so much better. A little on the pricey side for my liking. But overall I am pleased with the card. Been running it about 2 years now and aside from the occasional hot temp crash, the card has done well.
