2 out of 5 eggsThermal paste...

Pros: Awesome Zalman heatsink. Card was cheap when i purchased it.

Cons: Noticed the heatsink was a little loose. I removed to see what was up and there was NO THERMAL PASTE!!!! Both the gpu and the sink were shiny as can be. No wonder it overheated and has to be RMA!

Other Thoughts: Will never buy Gigabyte ever again. Also, this card isnt a 3870, its a 3850 OC from the factory to look like a 3870.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Zalman heatsink and fan keep it cool, CCC Overdirve "Autotune" puts it at 870MHz clock and 1050MHz ram, inexpensive.

Cons: A little big but it fits in my ATX mid.

Other Thoughts: GDDR4 would have been nice, but the Zalman cooler let's you OC a lot anyway. I Can now play Crysis with the DX9 altered CVarGroups.cfg file on XP w/ Very High settings except for the Motion Blur, which I keep at High. And this is with an old Athlon 64 x2 3800+ @ 2.15 GHz and 3 gigs of DDR-400 on XP x64. and of course all my other games i can max out(COD4, AOE 3, HL2, Bioshock).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent value. Aftermarket cooler is much quiter then reference. I was a little worried by the fact that the cooler doesn't cover the memory chips, but i have not had any problems. The memory chips are underneath the heatsink. So low profile memory heatsinks could be used and would take advantage of the fan moving air over them. I mainly play CSS. I'm running at 1920x1080P with everything cranked to the max. I get 134FPS. Supports HDMI audio without the need for another soundcard. This is your soundcard!

Cons: Does not include DVI to HDMI adaptor. Not, ATI uses a proprietary pin configuration to allow audio to transmit through the DVI port. A standard DVI to HDMI converter will allow Video to transfer fine, but not Audio. If you want audio you will need Item #: N82E16814999009 . Search google for "Realtek ATI HDMI Audio" This along with Catalyst 8.5 or later are required to allow audio output.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple install

Pros: Card ... goes ... vroom! Install was simple, card came with a ton of add-ons, and neverwinter nights 2!

Cons: The Zalman fins were pinched by my Raidmax Aztec (also used in the Smilodon) PCIE retaining bar. Bend and/or snip, and problem solved!

Other Thoughts: Yes, it's not DDR4. I still managed to live. For the money, it's a steal of a deal!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent performance. Raised my Vista peformance to 5.9. The fan runs quiet. The price is great, and it comes with a free game.

Cons: Nothing wrong with the card itself. Prior to purchasing it, I was concerned whether this card would fit into my Antec Sonata III case. But neither Newegg, or Gigabyte had any information on their websites about the length of the card. Hence the 4 eggs, instead of 5.

Other Thoughts: The card is about 9.25 inches long. The PCI-E connector projects out another 0.5 inches or so. It fits in an Antec Sonata III case, with the front fan installed, but it is tight. The PCI-E connector wires touch the fan casing. Without the front fan, it would fit easily.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Great performance, not overly large, good construction, excellent price.

Cons: Zalman fansink is noisier than I had expected and there's no fan speed control. (Have tried two freeware tools, neither of which worked for me.)

Other Thoughts: Will look for additional cooling solution with fan speed control.
