Cons: Not much OC headroom on stock cooler... It's based on the 7850 and 7870ghz edition.....
See other thoughts...

Other Thoughts: Pre-note: I bought this card from another disputer not Newegg.

Most of the reviews on this card are fairly negative, and out of the box I would mostly agree. The card ran uncomfortably hot at stock speeds @ 70-80c on a single Valley benchmark alone(open case). Every now and then I experienced random lockups, and vertical screen stripes. The whole "Lifetime Warranty" is GREAT if you can register it in time, 30 days I think, from the purchase date. The main Visontek website is a little confusing trying to find the warranty section, and their customer service response is very lagging. However if you didn't register the warranty in time or just don't care since new cards come out each year, there is still hope!

As many people complained, this card ran hot out of the box(it does), they are correct about insufficient thermal paste. I took the heat-sink off(this is actually easy with this card) and reapplied arctic silver ceramique 2($4.99 @ newegg w/ X pattern), and HUGE changes in temps. Speaking of the heatsink, I wanted to put heatsinks on the Vram, but because of the heatsink design(perfectly flat)the bulge from the GPU itself prevents contact with the VRAM to the heatsink, the gap is to narrow for a copper penny, but not for a credit card, the engineers who designed this didn't get enough sleep or missed a calculation... Anyways card temperatures are now impressive 56-61c on valley 1-2hrs @ 1100mhz.(closed case).

Conclusion: Maybe if VisonTek revised the heatsink and applied proper thermal compound, this card would make a great competitive underdog. Dropping the price less then or equivalent to Sapphire's R9 270X would make this card a pretty sweet deal, just apply new paste and good to go!

1 out of 5 eggsDeeply disappointed

Pros: When it did work, it was great.

Cons: Overheated, obviously due to factory floor deficient manufacturing. Tech support even admitted it was defective.

Other Thoughts: Ran into severe family troubles w/ my mother having a stroke and haven't been able to afford shipping it back. Now I got a high end paperweight.

1 out of 5 eggsThoroughly disappointed

Pros: It came in a box.

Cons: I ordered this card because it seemed to be a great value. I purchased it to replace my Radeon HD6950, which was and is a great card.

The First card they sent me was defective. The monitor doesn't even recognize it has been plugged into a card, and I followed the instructions to the letter. This didn't bother me, dead cards happen. Newegg was great at handling the replacement.

The replacement card is also dead-on-arrival. Won't even boot up. My old card and on-board graphics work just fine, no problems. When I plug this card in - nothing. I have reached out to their tech support. If they do not prove to be EXTREMELY useful I will likely never do business with VisionTek again.

Will update once they contact me.

Other Thoughts: New Egg was remarkably helpful and I have never been disappointed with their service.

1 out of 5 eggsWould you like to void the warranty?

Pros: It got the normal r9 270x performance.

Cons: Sure it has a lifetime warranty but that's kind of useless. Looking at the card sideways revealed there was barely any thermal paste used. I could see light between a majority of the heatsink and processor. I couldn't fix it without voiding the warranty though. As a result it ran really hot, needing the fan to crank up high, and on top of it being loud it was an annoying loud.

I put it under some stress gaming and it failed. I could have used the warranty that comes with it but I felt that would have resulted in an endless cycle of RMA's. I returned it.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than nothing!

Pros: -Not a red cooler, it is black with 2 fans
-Plays all my games, with my setup, at 60 FPS+ on Ultra
-The kh/s on LTC mining isnt too bad at ~420 o/c'ed slightly
-Stays nice and cool
-Lifetime warranty
-Runs great on my Silverstone 500W PSU

Cons: Really only complaint I have with this card is when it starts working, I get this weird noise coming from the card and hope it don't affect anything down the line. It runs great in games and no slow downs in mining. Lifetime warranty will take care of me...hopefully.

Other Thoughts: AMD FX-6100
8GB GSkill Ares 1600
MSI 760GM-P23
VisionTek R9 270x
Silverstone 500w
Seagate 1TB, Hitatchi 80GB
