3 out of 5 eggsDiamond did not honor warranty

Pros: Played everything on high until it broke

Acts as a make-shift space heater, comes in handy for cold nights.

Cons: Diamond will not honor the warranty on this card, i bought it in August of 2012, they have a 3 yr warranty and 5 years if you register the product. They claim I never registered,'s still been less than 3 years...

The support was good but apparently I can't send it back for warranty work.

Other Thoughts: Was a solid card while it lasted, it had some issues with blank screen after waking from sleep but those were all driver issues.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome oc

Pros: This card PCs crazy I get stable 1160/1900 at 1150 volts. yea I said 1900 MHz on memory from stock 1375 that's crazy .. I love this thing plays all games in ultra settings way better than my 6970 ..

Cons: None will get another one when the price goes down when the 8000 series comes out

Other Thoughts: If you can find a reference card buy it . I only buy reference cards cause they over clock so good plus dual bios switch . My card can go 1225 MHz stable for games but occt benchmarks shows errors so I don't want to damage my card .

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best References cards

Pros: I agree with what Rick stated before me. I picked this bad boy up before it sold out and have had it for over 2 months now and havent had an issue. Fast and works great for any games thrown at it at 1080p. Overclocked to 1050/1700, needs more voltage and watercooling to go beyond. Hoping to get another to throw them into crossfire and watercool them.

Cons: None currently with the card. However, when the AMD deal was going on, I had to fight with Newegg just to get the 3 free game deal, but didn't get the Tomb Raider one because I got the 3 free games before as what they said was an "Exception." :/ I should take off an egg for it, but its ok for now...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Reference Card

Pros: Voltage unlocked, lots of headroom for overclocking. Running it currently at 1015/1750 for Litecoin mining 24/7 with a few breaks to game with it. Stock cooler keeps the card under 70C, even at these settings. Plays everything I throw at it at 1080p with max settings without a problem. In all reality, way more video card than I needed for gaming, but makes for a great LTC miner (running 710kh/s most of the time), picking up a second one to double my output. Easily replaced a pair of 5850s with this single card and reduced my power footprint by a couple hundred watts easily.

Cons: Fan, like all radial fan based coolers, is loud. Unstable above 1750 MHz memory/1075 clock without a ton of voltage, causing the card to get crazy hot. But that's a minor con given that I'm pushing a 150/400 MHz OC already with a very minimal voltage increase.

2 out of 5 eggsDead in a month

Pros: Seemed to work well while it lasted.

Cons: Died, started artifacting everywhere. Slow RMA process.

Other Thoughts: Sent it in to Diamond for RMA 2 weeks ago (they've had it for 10 days now) and haven't heard back. I would expect better support on such an expensive card. I've been trying to get an update through their ticketing system. No confirmation of receipt, no reply to my request for update. Very disappointed right now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase

Pros: The card is able to handle two 1280x800 projector displays with no problems, although that isn't pushing the absolute limit of the card. It installs easily and is overclockable with CCC from the website. I usually leave the fan manually set to 50 or 55%, which keeps the card below 30 degrees celsius, but I will jack it up before gaming (see below).

Cons: When I start a graphics-intensive game, the temp on the card can climb over 45 degrees easily if I don't turn the fan up to 70-85%. That keeps the temp stable (35-45) and I don't like to go much above that without a headset on, because at 90%+, the fan on this thing sounds like an aircraft APU (loud and high pitched). I have to throw on a circumaural headset if I'm playing a graphically intensive game with the fan at or above 85% to block out the noise.

Other Thoughts: Totally satisfied. I usually play with a headset anyways, and for non-gaming applications I just dial the fan speed down so the noise is not an issue. This card is going to last me for many moons, it seems. System is TA890FXE MB, 955 BE OC 3.7Ghz, Zalman 110mm Fan, 16GB Ripjaws, HD 7970, Crucial M4 512GB SSD, Seagate 1TB HDD.

Cons: gets hot at times...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Video Card

Pros: Does not run that loud at 50% manual on the fan, and card stays nice and cool. Running games like Skyrim with about 50 extra mods or some, high res textures no frame chop whatsoever. Great card . 5 year warranty is sweet !

Cons: No cons so far
