It's an LN2 card with a 380w power limit that goes into safe mode when you flash it or update the driver without the fans plugged in. The only way to pass the 380w limit is with a special copy of afterburner only given to famous OCers or you can flash it with a real LN2 BIOS from a different card. The whole thing is a big joke for the price, useless for LN2 without an unlimited BIOS (though it's built for it) and if you put it under water you'd need to tear everything down to update the driver.


The cards aren't exactly rare, they're undesirable since they cost so much but don't really offer any thing cheaper cards don't have. I'd price it $100-$50 less than list price or just put it on eBay.
