Asus’ DirectCU II graphic cards have made a good impression (however it should be noted that Asus is the only one who is sending the card without any condition as how one-or-two brands put forward in the past). Not only they use good fans and a well made heatsink with the direct heatpipe method, but also a heatsink which can be removed and cleaned easily. The PCB arrangement is very clean and organized.
They also do use high quality components. They do use Digital VRM which uses the voltage regulators on the card to reduce power noise and efficiency, together with Super Alloy chokes. Asus have their own branded overclocking software and monitoring utility, not to mention their ROG branded GPU-Z tool. One thing that I do like is the automatic driver and BIOS checker on their utility.
Rest of the features? They’re from Nvidia: PCIe 3.0 support, Nvidia GPU Boost, Nvidia 3DVision, Adaptive V-Sync, PhysX, etc.
