Pros Running SLI.Found max over-clock for each card.Set separate over-clocks and have not had a problem.
Cons Wished both cards over-clocked to 1300MHz
Summary One card clocks to 1300 the other to 1200.Great cards and I run the without problems and a EVGA BIOS.100% fan speed and 150% power. Cards do not overheat and run without problems. I have even run them with a 560Ti for Physx.

Pros High performance Low power consumption Display ports
Cons Huge as hell Little bit pricey Bundle
Summary Beean taggign with this lil buddy for 2 days now. Wow, what a blast. upgraded from 2 4890 in crossfire. Major difference in performance. This card is a real improvement over past generations single cards. A must have for every fan of pc gaming.
Get easyly OC'ed with msi afterburner 2.2.1.
Probably the pricier card i will ever get and i envoy everybit of it
Pros Super cool temps and super quiet on the noise front! Powerful card can (finally) run surround and get decent fps off a single card!
Cons Had to disable adaptive power management in the drivers becuause I was having some issues otherwise. MSI doesn't give you any goodies or much for extra adapters like companies used to give with top end cards.
Summary Went from SLI 570 to a single 680 and other than the obvious drop in fps, this card is amazing and better in every way!
Summary this is the bomb! coming from a GTX 570 the increase in performance is quite clear. still very smooth - thanks nvidia drivers - and problem-free. works right out of the box with max performance, thanks to auto-boost. with a good CPU (2700k in my case) and a cool case (antec P280) it will go as high as 1124 mHz by itself, maybe more - too busy gaming, not watching graphs all the time!- 3dmark score through the roof : P9600 in 2011 at stock speeds ... yum!
Pros EFFICIENT. SILENT. POWERFULL. Overclocks like mad !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary What can i say ? This is a technological progress for you guys ! It replaced a GTX 580 and it is owning it, hard. BF3 around 40% extra after clock. Crysis 2 also... I mean, what more could i ever wish for - less heat, less power draw, more performance = win ! Simply the fastest GPU on the planet. (shut up 7970 fanboys, you know im right) I have been buying MSI since the GTX 480 and I am extremely happy with them. My GTX 480 was clocking like mad when i got it. This MSI 680 is not an exception, look at the forums for proof !!!
