A great choice if you don't want a complete reference cooler but still need a blower style GPU. The performance is nothing to sneeze at, but benchmarks will tell you if this will be the best bang for your buck, especially with newer cards coming out in 2018/19.
The only real drawback that i've seen is the noise, although it is inherent with a blower style cooler. When gaming or under other strenuous loads, the fan does keep the card cool-ish (79 C in my anecdotal testing) but at the cost of fan noise at high RPM. There is also a slight coil whine, but only when loading certain game menus, and certainly not during everyday use or while playing the game.
I originally went with this card in September of 2018 because i wanted variable frame rate support, and wasn't willing to pay the G-sync premium to get that with team green. Of course, team green has since adopted supported freesync but I am definitely not switching just because of that.
Overall a well-performing card with good specs, and if you need the form factor like I did it is a great choice.
