    Pros
    Fast card. Great after market cooler. Quiet
    Cons
    none
    Summary
    I already have a vanilla GTX 680 and I got this one for a SLI set up since Titan is a disappointment in terms of performance/price. I am amazed at SLI right now. Best set up I have ever had. It cuts through metro 2033 and Crysis 3 no problem !!!I love the coole ron this thing. It is better than my vanilla GTX 680 by about 10 degrees. Really good cooler, probably better than the Asus Direct CUII but it doesn't take up 3 slots. Recommended !

    Pros
    Everything.
    Cons
    Nothing.
    Summary
    My first SINGLE GPU that can max out crysis. That's a pretty big step considering no other GPU I've tried (580s, 6970s etc) would max it out at 60fps constant. Very happy, will be getting another.

    Pros
    One of the best cooling solutions there is
    Installed easy
    Fast fast FAST!!!
    Cons
    Slightly more expensive than other 680s
    Summary
    I needed a major video card improvement in my older i7 system to keep me going for at least another year and this card fit the bill. Driving two hi def monitors with no problem though I usually game on just one.

    The best part compared to other cards is the twin frozer cooling system as it keeps it cool and quiet. I manually crank up the fans before gaming as I prefer cooler temps than noise. Even cranked up the fans are not too loud.

    It is a 680 so the gaming is wonderful and worry free as no need to tweak settings to keep frame rates high enough.

    Pros
    Runs too cool, 60 C under max load
    Astonishing performance.
    Cons
    NONE!!!
    Summary
    This card is fantastic, running one and bought another one for SLI. This card plays BF2 Ultra settings completely maxed on 60 fps, minimum 50 fps in multiplayer. upgraded from two gtx 570's
    one 680 beats the two of them. The maximum fps in some games can be higher for the 570's however there are no random dips in performance with the 680 it is always running smooth. Really good card. 3dmark11 Performace score is P8600 with one card !!!
    All in all if you have the money Go for IT. ITS THE FASTEST SINGLE GPU CARD. It even makes the gtx 580 look outdated.

    Pros
    Runs very quiet and extremely cool, overclocks well considering it's reference with a custom cooler, great build quality and style
    Cons
    Cranking the fan up past 70% will make this card very loud, moreso in SLI. Quite expensive for a reference card (no 8 pin power or any voltage related tweaks for overclocking).
    Summary
    I have these in SLI and I'm amazed at how cool they run. Load temps in BF3 max out at 65C and 55C (top and bottom card) and they are barely audible at these temps. My case fans are much louder. Good case cooling will drop  the temps on these cards quite a bit in SLI.

    My cards aren't fantastic overclockers but so far I can get 1250core stable which is a nice bump in performance and that's at the above temps and noise levels.

    Unlike Windforce models, the cooler is pretty solid and looks durable. Some custom coolers are heavy and the weight often makes the cards sag on one end I don't notice that with these cards.

    Very happy with these and I'd surely recommend them.

    Comment: spoiler!!! We're happy to award the MSI GTX680 Twin Frozr 3 our OC3D Silver Award, and also add to the fact that out of the GTX680's we have tested so far from Vendors this would be the one we would personally all choose just because it is so quiet, temps are great and its probably the best
