    Wow... Now that's one seriously quiet card. It looks like they are extremely conservative with their fan curve.

    Thx Hilbert for the review hard at work as usual!

    Very nice card but palit should have used a different color scheme for the cooler.
    For the rest i like the card alot and the included G-panel is a nice addon.

    Found a price in a Bulgarian store of all places. It's 807 euro for what seems to be the G-panel edition as there is a cheaper, 765 euro variant in the same store. Keep in mind that Bulgarian market does not follow any rules and retailers here often think they are entitled to a larger profit than anyone else.

    P.S: Official exchange rate is 1.95583 BGN for 1 euro

    Thank you for your review, HH.

    Super review and a superbly quiet card. One thing worries me though. In the MSI Afterburner screenshot the fan speed jumps to 2000 rpm every now and then. Is that really happening or is it just read error from the fan?

    Impressive card, I also like that it's 3 slot, and the color does fit some white builds. For me though, it's still got to be black & red. :p

    I'd say that it's either read error either leftover from manually adjusting the fan.

    Yup. Gainward Phoenix design looks kinda better than this Palit. Color scheme is also.

    What a fantastic card for white or blue themed builds. It would really look frankensteined in anything else. Kind of makes you willing to take it apart and paint it black/red. (that's my latest theme as well)

    I really love the additional and completely frivolous display panel. These are the things (even at a premium) that can set all these otherwise "same" cards apart a bit more.

    truth be told, Palit have been always associated with low budget products in my mind.. probably because the only Palit used to reach our market were low profile ones.
    don't know about the material, but it dose look kinda bulky, but it dose make for it with performance and G-panel and sure price wise.
    the color of the card..probably t's just as Hilbert said a mater of reign, colored like a mecha if anyone could see the white and blue with twin fans
    well made me nostalgic:) G00 anyone :nerd:

    Well... Gainward is Palit's, how would I put it, premium brand. Although they all are pretty much the same cards with different names and colour schemes.

    There are enough black and red themed cards out there, I really like this design. It's refreshing. :)
