Set this in my new gaming rig, first PC I'd ever built. Install was a breeze. Set up was easy after boot, just get the proper drivers and everything is cake. OC'ed to 925 core/1225 memory, this thing is great. The fans are quiet if you leave them on auto, which I didn't. My card was running around 50C plus or minus 5 degrees in Diablo 3 with max settings, LoL with max settings, and DayZ with normal settings. That's pretty cool. It handled all these games at around 50% GPU usage. I set my own custom fan profile with MSI's Afterburner software, which allowed me to overclock the card as well. As I mentioned, if you leave the fan on auto, its a pretty quiet card. However, when the fans start spinning at around 50%, it starts to make a bit more noise. Personally I don't mind the noise and would prefer a bit of extra cooling, so I over-tune my fans to spin faster than needed. With a solid headset you won't hear the fan over whatever you're doing, so the sound isn't a huge deal.
All in all a great card. Seems to handle everything I throw at it very well.
