Pros: cheap, fast, oc very well, no issues
Cons: Single fan cooling does not work for high oc, none really
The card ran perfect how it was shipped. Not a single issue. Heat was fine if a little on the warm side but never unsafe. Looks really nice compaired to alot of venders 560ti models. This model had a small oc on it from 822 to 850 core plus some extra with shadders and mem. I can oc to 950 core easy and no heat issues but 1000 core with 1.15v the card gets to warm for me.
I modded a Corsair H70 cooler to my card and mother of god i could not kill this card if i wanted to. Temps never went above 56c...EVER, no matter what. I could max the core clock slider using MSI Afterburner and bring core clocks up to 1275 and still finnish heaven 2.5 and mark11. I was pulling numbers not to far behind stock 580 cards. heaven 2.5 was just 1313 for the zotac and a low 580 score is 1700ish.
The card sits now as i bought a 580gtx, bit sad but thats the way things work right. Anyways i would say buy to anyone looking for a good overclocker protential card and dont really looking at spending alot. Two sli will beat a 580gtx by about 20%
Not sure about buy date, was a while ago.
