I swear this brick could kill a small animal if thrown directly at it. Its size is HUGE compared to other aftermarket GPUs, which may contribute to its lower temperature under load due to a larger heatsink. Runs pretty quiet running AAA titles and has a nice RGB feature which is a steal for its price range.

You get an awful lot of card for your money. 1632 core clock, supposedly 1835 boost, but when running Unigine Valley I get 2037 MHz straight out of the box without changing any settings (Palit's own Thunder Master software also reports 2037 MHz - it isn't Unigine inflating the true value). With Unigine Valley running the card reaches 68C and 34% fan speed, which is enough to be audible, but is impressively quiet for a graphics card of this power.
The card is huge. 300 long including the I/O shield (board length is 285) x 133 x 57 thick. Don't consider this card unless you have the thickness of 3 slots available (you don't physically need three slots in the case), and also be very wary of the 133 dimension if you have a small case - you've got to fit the power connector on top of that, remember.
Because it is so cheap, and very quiet when new I'm happy to give it five stars, but I do have just a little reservation. If you manually turn the fans up to full they are very noisy indeed and I suspect that over time as dust collects on surfaces reducing heat transfer, the fans will need to work harder and the card will become louder. I'll just have to wait and see.

A very pretty looking card that performs excellently. I own the Ti version of this. Idle temps = 25C. Usage = 30C
A star could be deducted for this if size is a priority as this is a chunky card that requires 2.5 slots. This is a thick card, but that is not a fault of its making but merely the explanation of why this thing stays so cool. The PALIT logo on the front is RGB controlled using "ThunderMaster" software
