Pros
Cheap, Black PCB, Has a nice cooler, Advertised 880 but actually 925 (if it will stay on those clocks). Quiet at >50% fan speed
Cons
Is quite loud <50% fan speed, My card has a tough time with tessellation, FPS drops quiet hard on Heaven Benchmark
from norm. Isn't stable at stock speeds keeps jumping down to 850,rather than stay at 880(which is advertised for) or 925 GPUZ reading.

Rma'd Card and 2nd card work flawlessly.
Summary
Received my card 3/22/2013 installed 3/23/2013 Tried Heaven Valley on drivers 13.1,13.2b,13.3b Has a really hard time with tessellation Card fan ramps up hits 80c regularly, Also has a low volume high pitch noise when playing games (SC2, BF3, Skyrim) Tried it with 2 different computers both are giving the same symptoms with this card(both stock and +20% power enabled). Will give NCIX a call to try and RMA will update  my review with RMA sample.
Got it RMA'd And also received my 2nd card the RMA'd Card worked significantly better than the first one recieved. Both work flawlessly even overclock quite decently as well, A little on the loud side once the fans ramp up past 50% but still a very powerful card.

Pros
Great Price. Great upgrade from my old 6850. 2 Free games!(Crysis 3 and Bioshock infinite(not out yet))
Cons
Fans making a horrible clicking noise when raised above 50 %. Sounds like they're gonna break into pieces. Makes me worry they won't last long.
Summary
Great card for the price. Playing all the latest games (Crysis3, Sleeping Dogs, BF3, Planetside 2 etc. with solid performance at 1920 x 1080.

Would be 5 star but the fans have me worried.

Pros
For $299 with crysis 3 and bioshock infinite, this is an amazing deal.
INSANELY QUIET!
Stays REALLY cool on idle and load! (25 idle, 55 load at 20 degrees room temp
It is FAST.
Cons
Packaging.. no big deal
Weird coil whine. Had to return it.
Summary
So far so good! Stays really cool under gaming conditions and is maxing out BF3 at solid FPS. Upgraded from a 6850 and this is miles ahead.
The card looks great and is going strong. Really solid pick-up at $299 and I would highly recommend it.
EDIT: Forgot to mention it came at 925/1250 instead of 880! Very nice.

So a few days in I had a problem with coil whine. Was good when it was working well, not sure what was up with the noises. Thanks to NCIX for the easy return.

Pros
Very quiet when fan speed is automatically controlled
Powerful graphics card for the price point
Best Bang for your buck
3 year warranty (Although longer would be nice)
Powercolors custom cooling performs very well.
Cons
Packaging could have been a bit better
Due to the packaging the metal plate that is used to screw the card securely to the case was bent slightly, but was fixable easily.
Summary
Great card for the price I paid (299), extremely quiet and runs everything with ease that I've thrown at it thus far. The metal plate was bent slightly upon arrival but I was able to bend it back so it would fit fine, would like to see the packaging a bit better but would recommend for the price point.
