Great card for the price, $200 + tax and gift card, great deal. Had to replace the thermal paste to get good temps. I let the card idle with 54% fan speed dual monitors between 52-56c with single monitor about 45c.. Load temps overclocked 72% fan speed 1.1v 865 core 2200 memory in BF3 temps are 74c give or take couple C. With ac on temps drop 5c +..
run good and you can't hear it until you change the fan speed to 60%. i don't consider user reviews to give more details because you can look up benchmarks to know what's the performance this card gives.
I purchased this card as part of a life extension project for a 3 year old system. I wanted a card that would let me enjoy modern games like Skyrim at 1920x1080 resolution without spending a lot of money. This card, purchased on sale for $209 plus $3.99 shipping, fit the bill. I already had a well ventilated chassis (Antec 902) and a suitable power supply (Corsair 550w) and I'm prepared to purchase an aftermarket cooler but haven't yet found the noise level objectionable.
For the money, this is literally the best bang for your bucks. Make sure you have a minimum of a 550w power supply and lots of room in your case because this is a long card. The fan is on the noisy side for my liquid cooled machine that is normally extremely quiet. I immediately noticed the noise, but it may not be as apparent for you.
38-42 degrees idle. Around 80 degrees on full load. I play BF3 on Medium Settings and cap my frames at 50 FPS using EVGA precision. This keeps the card around 60 degrees and fan at 65%ish. Can run BF3 on ULTRA at 50 FPS but card runs hot at 80 degrees and fan at 90%ish.
Good video card for gaming. Noise is much lower than I expected. Temperature is approximate 40 °C when it's idle. Maximum temp goes 81 °C during gaming. Alternate video card cooling is preferable if high temperature is not tolerable.
