funny that some people hate the PCB and some like it personally I really don't like it would be better black but then this kind of thing would not divert me from buying it - performance > looks

No, not with the SOC cards. There are a fair amount of people who have gotten duds; heck, if it weren't for me water-cooling this one, I would've had to RMA for a THIRD time in the first 5 weeks of buying. The first two were RMA'ed because of unstable overclocks, and the third was going to be RMA'ed because one of a heatsink fan falling off, but since it's water-cooled now that doesn't matter.

The worst part about their quality is that there are people out there that just drop the clocks to stock and live with it. If I spend extra cash on a pre-OC'ed card, I expect for it to work out of the box and not have to downclock it for the card to be stable - that's just bullcrap.

I like the cooler...personally seeing SOC I thought it'd been a higher clock on the core...but the memory we way on up there compared to stock 2000.

That a crazy card. It get 7.3K in 3DMark 11. I could barely break 7K with GTX580 @ 900Mhz but drivers for the past 6 months might have changed that.
