Quiet, cool and fast. Getting one for the price of a 3gb on Jet.com! Awesome.
Note that I purchased this previously, in like Mar 2017 for ~ $250. Prices are fubar right now but luckily this was a hand-me-down. I originally had it in an NCASE M1, which actually supports full-length GPUs, but I KNEW one day I may want to buy the S4M (which only supports up to ~ 210mm).
2 of the games I've found most taxing on a system to this day are Witcher 3 and Rise of the Tomb Raider, so I used both of these for testing:
Temps aren't bad especially for such a small card with only 1 fan. In that NCASE M1 (small mini ITX case without a ton of airflow), this thing would run ~ 75C during extended sessions. No throttling... not bad!
I was also able to get a stable +100/500 on this card using the standard MSI Afterburner method. As I recall it jumps to 2000 mhz then settles at 1850 ~ 1900 mhz, again during long gaming sessions.
Still going strong for over a year and a half. Pulls at least 60 fps in anything at 1080p, far more in esports games e.g. Overwatch, CS GO, Dota 2, etc.
