Editors Didn't Like

  • Priced a little on the high side for its class
  • Hot air from GPU exhausted into case, High power consumption, 27cm long, could be an issue for some, Not the best value, Not much O/C headroom in Afterburner
  • Fan could be quieter, High power draw in Bluray playback, CCC Overdrive limits too low, Power draw limiter could complicate advanced overclocking, Cooler seems longer than necessary, DirectX 11 relevance limited at this time, No support for CUDA / PhysX
