As far as overclocking goes, XFX GTX 285 Black Edition is up there with the best. Not only do you get a 6% faster card out of the box but we managed to push it even further to 720MHz, which is 11% faster than on reference cards. Far Cry 2 obviously benefited from this and the card managed 10% better results with the core at 720Mhz and the memory at 1380MHz (2760MHz effectively).
The card is quiet in 2D, and the same goes for 3D but only until the card heats up more seriously and it does tend to get a bit loud. Maximum recorded temperatures were at 87°C.
