Pros Out of the Box overclock Good cooling Looks good
Cons Stability issues Vents heat into case
Summary This is a great card, great performance right out of the box with the over clock on it. 1920x1080 max everthing in BF3 and lowest FPS so far is 51 runs 60+ 90% of the time.
Had a few issues with stability with it though after about an hour of gaming found it would start to crash out and would have to restart my games. Updated the vbios and found it is performing much better now but still has random crashing issues.
Ended up bumping the OC down a bit and haven't crash since. I am a little disappointed as I wanted to OC it a little higher.
It is a really good card but like a few other have said the stock OC might be a little to much for it.
One note it does actually throw a lot of heat off in your case, but if you have proper airflow in your case shouldn't be an issue, if your case is tightly packed could be an issue for some.
Pros - extremely fast out of the box - virtually inaudible even at high fan speeds - includes backplate for support - looks GREAT in your case! - full length 670 pcb is superior to the shorter ones - two slot cooler design is arguably the best on the market
Cons - very hit n' miss when it comes to the "silicon lottery" - some stability problems out of the box (fixed with updated firmware that downclocked the GPU boost)
Summary This is a great card with a few stability issues that have kept it from being the BEST card. Essentially, these cards shouldn't have been clocked as high as they were in the first place. Some users (remember to research before you buy!) have reported stupidly high overclocking potential, while others (including myself) have had less success - even some stability problems out of the box. While recent firmware updates have improved stability, they`ve done so at the cost of overall speed (the GPU 'kepler' boost was downclocked). Still, even at default settings, with a reduced 'kepler boost,' this card devouring any game I throw at it (1920x1200). For example - consistent 60 fps in BF3 (maxed everything) and Skyrim (maxed texture packs/graphics mods etc).
The ASUS cooler is probably (imho) the best GPU cooler available. It's extremely quiet, very solidly built, and looks great. This two-slot design is even SLI capable (vs. their common 3-slot designs). My card never goes much above 60 degrees gaming, or above 70 while benchmarking - using custom fan settings of course (which everyone should be doing).
Summary I bought this to replace an aging ati 4670... And I'm pretty happy with what I've got, it's MUCH faster than my previous card, quieter, pack a punch and hopefully will last me for at least 3 years... The only con I found yet is a bad interaction from Asus GPU Tweak but that's supposed to be fixed with an update so I would suggest not using the one on the cd that came with the card.
Pros Great performer, Dead silent, even at highest fan settings
Cons not that much more overclockable than stock. Fans exhaust into case
Summary This card outperforms a stock 680. It handles any current game at the highest settings without even breaking a sweat. It runs cool, you cant hear the fans even under load. My case has high airflow so exhausting into the case isnt a problem, but might be in a poor flow case. But running cool, this is even debatable if thats worth being concerned. My preliminary fiddling with the card has resulted in some success of overclocking further, but I have read reviews of substantial overclocking with the right settings. I bought this to be a plug and play card so others likely will have better success overclocking. Overall = *Double Thumbs Up*
Summary Was running 2 xfx 5870's in xfire and thought they were fast ..... Then i installed this and almost wet myself. Even with the fan on 60% you can't hear it. This thing laughs at any game on any setting. When theres more in stock I'm defiantly buying another one, maybe 2 ..... :)

Pros Very fast Silent Boosts to 1256mhz on its own Power efficient
Cons None so far
Summary The card boosts itself and holds steady at 1256mhz in skyrim and the witcher 2 without me touching anything! 119mhz above the listed boost clock which is already well above reference. Temps hover around 52 celsius in crysis 2 and thats with the fans never exceeding 45% on auto. I could probably oc it further but why bother. Pictures do not do this card justice just how attractive it is. From the slick backplate to the nickel plated heat pipes its sexy. Haven't heard the fans over my case yet. Phenomenal card!
"ASUS has an offering for you that comes factory overclocked, it is boosting the GPU even over 1200 MHz already making the product really shine. The overall design is the evolution of the DirectCU II TOP DNA, and that shows. We have respect for NVIDIA's partners that go the extra mile with a cus
"Yes, you've seen correctly, the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP is the first graphics card ever that I gave a perfect ten score. The stock GeForce GTX 670 provides already great performance, but ASUS has topped that by boosting it with a large overclock out of the box which catapults it b
