Editors Didn't Like

  • Pricier than the competition; limited success in actually overclocking
  • A slightly overclocked core is completely pointless
  • Extremely noisy cooler, Overclock out of the box is rather slim, Slightly higher power consumption than reference design, GPU mounting mechanism doesn't seem to be ideally designed, DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while, No support for CU
  • Memory overclocking is poor, Stock clock speeds are a tad conservative
