"As such, the Asus more than justifies its price as a fast card that will last for ages. It's too large to fit inside many cases, but so much performance at such a low noise level makes it a very desirable card." And then you give it only a Value Score of 23/30?
Which is it? You can't have it both ways and still maintain your supposed journalistic neutrality and also the integrity of your review.
