5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Graphics Card

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: This card works amazingly well with the games I have tried it with so far....Final Fantasy XIV, Thief, and COD. Super Quiet for how powerful this card is. The stock fan RPM program works flawlessly.

Cons: The only con I have at all with this car is how large it is and depending on how your MoBo is set up, possibly blowing the hot air directly on your CPU. But thats not the cards fault.

Other Thoughts: Overall an excellent mid-range GPU

5 out of 5 eggsBest Card for the Money.

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great Card, have been using it in my gaming rig, and it works fantastically. It is able to run strong with a high over clock, but it was a little too hot for me so i turned it down, but its a great over clocking card. I am looking in to purchasing a second to add a few more monitors. The cooler on it is excellent. Unless the fans are on 100%.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Wish it was a little cheaper but other than that its a great card.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Fast, Easy to Manage, quiet, and maxes out whatever I throw at it from (EA) Origin, Steam, Blizzard. Using it with a BENQ XL2411z and a Samsung as a secondary screen and it doesn't skip a beat.

Cons: Large, I was worried about if it would fit or not in my Antec 900 case.

Other Thoughts: I ended up flipping the middle and bottom bays in my case to fit it. Haven't noticed much difference in temp or power consumption from my old GTX 590 Ti but huge performance jump.

Pros: -Overclocked great for me
-Very quiet unless you put the fans at 100%
-GPUTweak is nice to use

Cons: -For some games it thinks your gpu is very low end, because it turns its clock down until you need it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Much more quieter than my 7870 which quit on me last week after a couple years of use. Plenty enough power for ultra/high settings when using 1080p.

4gigs of Vram, although it probably won't ever be fully used but it never hurts having to much memory.

Would recommend this card for those using 1080p.

Cons: Couple small cons, when looking underneath the cooler from the side I noticed that not all Vram chips are completely covered by the heatsink but I don't expect there to be a problem with overheating on the memory.

Card is about inch longer that the 7870 which made it a tight fit behind the pump for my watercooling. Not that much of hassle getting it installed though.

Other Thoughts: After a bit of gaming I ran FurMark to stress test the gpu while monitoring the temps. I use manual fan control set at 85% which is about as high as I can go before I start noticing the sound from the fans. With my 7870 I couldn't go over 50-60% before the fans started whining. The R270X fans doesn't whine just the movement of air that I can hear.

After a 30 min run with the benchmark putting my gpu at 99% usage and fans still set a 85% the temps leveled off at 66C and never went above that. Not bad but I'll later remove the cooler and reapply the thermal paste with some Gelid extreme.

Overall, I'm satisfied enough with this card to give it 5 eggs.
