This card is very cool in terms of temperatures when running close to 100%. Mine runs at no more than 60 C after an hour of full load (i have a decent airflow). Also the gan speed is always set to aout and it never passed 30% (very silent).

Wish for X-mas or wait for GTX 960(price:970 is less than 770; 980 is less than 780 so :960 less than 760 and 960 = 270X)

Might have difficulty with Windos Vista even with current "working" Drivers 13.12. My computer wouldn't recognize it, and many people had to upgrade to a new OS or had to use a "workaround" to get this card to work. I just RMA'd mine.

I would choose the Viper over this because of its better OC, but right now it has a BF4 coupon with it! Looks like the temps are cooler then most 270x, but other 270x never run hot from what ive seen. Great price for a quality card.
