5 out of 5 eggsSilent Solution for Entry-Mid level gaming/office use

Pros: No fans - no moving parts - no noise. Exactly what you would expect from a passively cooled video card. The graphics are incredible, but I've been gaming on integrated graphics so that bar is not set super high.

Cons: This card is very big. I did not have any problems fitting it in my case, but could see how you might. Check for clearances before you buy. The card seems to sag just a bit, and I don't think I'm going to move the system around too much as I'd be very sad if it broke due to the weight of the heat sink. I don't have any other PCI cards installed, but that would be something else to check as the heat sink is big. Did I mention that the heat sink is big? Ok, I'll shut up now (but it's big!).

Other Thoughts: Windows Experience is at 7 without any tuning or OC'ing, and I'm getting 60 FPS in World of Warcraft and seeing stuff I've never seen before. If you're looking for casual gaming, and want it to be absolutely quiet, look no further. Completely worth it.

My system is below, and I was on a little bit of a power budget so this card was nice as it did not require a separate power connection.

5 out of 5 eggsNot PCI Express 2.0!!!!

Pros: Excellent card
High Quality
Silent
Price

Cons: Both Newegg's product description and the Sapphire product list this card as being PCI Express 2.0 however, if you zoom in on the pictures of the box, you will find that it is PCI Express 2.1. Beware if you have an older motherboard that does not play nice with PCI Express 2.1 graphics cards.

Be careful removing this from the ESD bag - the fins are rather gentle and could easily be bent / loosened from the heat pipe.

Other Thoughts: Bought this hoping to get a silent 5670 for my older s939 based desktop that has taken up the silent HTPC role. My motherboard only has a PCI Express 1.0 slot, but per the PCI Express standard, all PCI Express versions (1.0, 1.0a, 2.0, 2.1) should all be backwards compatible. However, not all older motherboards included the future PCI Express standards in their BIOS. This was the case for my motherboard. I needed a PCI Express 2.0 card so I got this thinking it was. Turns out the box clearly says 2.1 and therefore doesn't work for me. Newegg needs to update their product descriptions for many of Sapphire's 5000 series GPU's as they are all 2.1 despite the description. Otherwise this card was dead silent and would have made for a stellar HTPC. Just do your hw before you buy - hopefully Newegg will adjust this description after I let them know there was a mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Improvement

Pros: Eliminated all the checkerboarding artifacts I used to get streaming Netflix with my old GE Force 8600. Combined with a new Hyper 212 CPU cooler, I can't even tell if the PC is on unless I look at the screen. Simply awesome Hi Def with Power DVD 10

Cons: None, unless you have a slimline case. I have a standard Micro ATX case and it fits just fine.

Other Thoughts: Completely bug-free install downloading the latest Catalyst version.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome HTPC card

Pros: Silent. Runs cool, even in my HTPC case. Never had any problem from it.

Cons: Tall. About 30mm higher than the bracket.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great and is silent, of course. In its mid-sized tower it doesn't add much heat at all.

Cons: Just a heads up that this is not a serious 3D gamers card. There is a 5770 silent card out there and some higher end silent cards coming. It is an excellent card for just about any non-3D use, however. This is the level ATI graphics capability used in most iMacs at this time, for example (1/2011).

3 out of 5 eggsToo big....

Pros: Liked the fact there was a 5670 with a heat sink since I was looking to install in an HTPC system.

Cons: The heat sink is enormous. Despite trying to install this in a big Silverstone LC20-B case, I was not able to close the case. Had to replace it with another 5670 with fan.

5 out of 5 eggsUltimate Silent Sapphire HD5670 Corrected REVIEW!

Pros: Purchased a VGA SAPPHIRE 100289UL HD 5670 1GB R $99.99 from NewEgg on Jan 3rd 2011 arrived in perfect condition in 4 days. I own a 2005 Gateway GT5012 Media Center PC (Pentium D 820)with 4Gb RAM using XP64 Pro. I was able to stream HD 1080p (1920x1080) but only in 16 bit color smoothly with the onboard integrated video. I am a strong believer in staying well behind the technology curve. I prefer to build machines after the CPUs drop to $150 rather than buy the same part the date it becomes available without developed software support or peripherals for $1400.

Cons: This was an unusual move to upgrade to a just released video card but I risked it because, if it worked, my machine could be made to stretch untill I can build an affordable Quad Opteron 48 core or such. My GT5012 is not my main build but rather a $100 pawn shop find for the bedroom. The GT5012 has PCI-E 1.0 so I Knew that there could be a problem. The PCI-E standard gaurantees forward mobility of old hardware but not all new hardware is gauranteed to work in older slots. Most do
but a major change in PCI-E 2.1 gives most of the advanced features of newest PCI-E 3.0 but at 2.0 bandwidth. This is why I decided on the Ultimate Sapphire 5670 which is 2.0 some 5670s are 2.1.!

Other Thoughts: The card works perfectly in my PCI-E 1.0 slot after I downloaded the latest 64Bit Hi-Speed Bus Driver and ATI Cayalyst Drivers. Streaming Netflix full HD 32 bit and there is no artifacts or hesitation and my 3d screensavers look awesome with all settings maxed! The card is dead silent and since it takes a load off the CPU and no more onboard gpu the noisy processor fan does not go into overdrive when streaming so whole system is much quieter for it's purpose. I have it hooked up to a 1080p 47"LED Flatscreen and watching Wizard of Oz last night was awesome! Would Highly recommend this upgrade to HDPC users and light to medium gamers on a budget. As with most new products the ATI drivers are immature with a few noticeable omissions like an overscan feature and the UI is a little clumsy compared to what ATI offers for older cards. I expect these will improve as many more people discover this Silent Little Gem!

5 out of 5 eggsUltimate Sapphire Silent HD5670

Pros: Low Power Use (Works fine on my 300 Watt GT5012)
Dead Quiet tube cooler!
Works in my PCI-E 1.0 slot
Actually lowered sound level of my PC not just did not add to it!
Can add up to a total of four of these in crossfire and use less than 250Watts under load.

Cons: DirectX 11 is not available in XP but this card is only expected to be a slide show with DirectX 11 games ! If most of your games are DirectX 9 or less expect most all of them to run with this card set at medium to high quality settings

1 out of 5 eggsNot as good as my onboard graphics

Pros: Fits nicely in my case. Silent. Runs cool.

Cons: Not as good as my onboard graphics (780G chipset with Radeon HD 3200). Disabled onboard graphics in BIOS and installed CCC. Even tried over-clocking it. Still provided choppy video when displaying HDTV via my tuner card. No appreciable difference in displaying Flash over internet. Windows Aero score jumped up to 7, but that's not real in my world. Open to the possibility that I am missing something in the installation.

Other Thoughts: Setup:
Gateway LX6200-01 running Win 7 64
AMD Phenom Quad Core 2.2 mhz
8 Gig DDR2 RAM
3T total hard drive capacity
450w power supply
upgraded case fan to 120mm
PCIe 2.0 x 16 slot (only one)

Toshiba 40" 1080p LCD TV

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, quite, inexpensive card.

Pros: Used it as a replacement for the two cards I had for my 3 monitor setup. With the addition of an Active display adapter all that i did was plug every thing in 2 DVI monitors and one old VGA, detected by windows 7 very good video on each moitor. Super quiet setup now.

Cons: Not a gamer so have no comment as to its game display qualities but it plays movies and other videos really well.

Other Thoughts: I used this. SAPPHIRE Active DisplayPort Adapter 100924 ...Item #: N82E16814999030
