5 out of 5 eggsOverheats UNTIL you remove the plastics!

Pros: So to address the overheating complaints, it DOES run hot, but the solution is extremely simple: remove the plastic shell. Its like 2 screws and some gently jimmying, but once its off your temps will decrease mightily.

Cons: I've never had any issues with this card, and it still runs quite well even after I *might* have used it to mine altcoins back in Feb 2014..

3 out of 5 eggsFast but Hot

Pros: -Still pretty fast after two years. Most things do not stress it too badly. Maybe Star Citizen gives the most trouble and I do tone down the effects there for performance sake.
-Can overclock it pretty well with one issue (see cons)

Cons: -The fan is a loud whining noise.
-Heat is a problem with this card. There is only 1 fan to cool the GPU. On stock settings, this is okay, but if you attempt to OC you will run into a heatwall very fast.

1 out of 5 eggsIt's trash....Didn't even last a year.

Pros: Well starting off, it was nicely priced and performed well... but had i known it wouldn't last in the long run i would have reconsidered.

Cons: Had it just under a year when it started to give artifacts in swtor, MoH:WarFighter, GW2, and more. I am not sure if it is just poor manufacturing on PowerColors part or what, but for the price i really expected to get more then a year of use out of it. I try to be a bit frugal with my money so i want to get the most value and bang for my buck, and particularly reliability, i get none of this from this product. Hell, i can't even get to the company website half the time to complain because it often is down.

Other Thoughts: save your money go with a better known company, get a better built product, and a better customer support, and PR department that will put some effort into establishing themselves as a reliable company.

Manufacturer Response:


This is Raymond from PowerColor, we apologize for the issue you are facing with the card. Please email me at so that we can resolve the issue for you.

Best Regards,

1 out of 5 eggsPut a piece of wood in your PCIE slot instead...

Pros: It was cheap when I bought it. Evidently not anymore.

Cons: Broke after 4 months of use. Returned it for RMA to Powercolor. They said they would fix it but it took nearly a month, and their website said 14 days. 2 weeks after I received and installed the repaired card, it broke again. I sent it back to them and it has been about a week and a half....

Other Thoughts: At least a slim piece of wood fitted to your PCIE slot wouldn't cause your computer to power off and make dying light/fan flickering.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money

Pros: It will run any game on any setting

Cons: The only thing that i dislike is the way it goes into my MB makes it upside down so that the cool red part is on the bottom and not visable.

Other Thoughts: They shipped the board with Crysis 3 and Bioshock infinate. I thought this was pretty ballsy. When i got the pc the first game i played was Crysis 3, right away I jumped in and set everything to max trying to make this thing dump on itself. Didnt happen. It has now ran everything ive asked it to on the highest possible settings. Only assassins creed made it lag alittle. Lets be honest tho, it made everyones PC lag. It was fin e until i turned up the anti w.e filtering and thing thats just like it

1 out of 5 eggsPower color won't repair under warranty

Pros: Card worked great until the fan failed

Cons: Fan stopped working 6 months into ownership. Power Color said it was too dusty and would not replace fan within the warranty period

Other Thoughts: Never buy another Power Color product. I clean my computer very often and the two little bits of dust they said was the cause of the fan failure is ridiculous.

Manufacturer Response:


This is Raymond from powercolor. A video card that has excessive dust can results in the bearings in the fan to seize. We cannot honor fan warranty for such cases. The card however, is still in warranty.

Best Regards,

3 out of 5 eggsGood speeds.

Pros: Good speeds, good temps

Cons: I will never buy powercooler again. 3 different brands of motherboards have had issues with this unit, and EVERY support site i read only lists another unit as having problems with the mobos. but it was this unit as well so took me awhile to just try anything and everything to get it to work (but I finally did and it works well now)

Other Thoughts: BSODs when alt tabbing out of some games, or changing display cables in the back.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong!

Pros: -Been almost a year and no issues.
-Mine overclock fine for the price, 1140core and 1500memory on water it was 1125core and 1350mem before on water.
-Drivers have improved significantly a while ago for crossfire especially.
-Still fast enough for any fps game I throw at it BF4 and COD Ghosts run max/100+ fps on most maps.

Cons: -They do get hot if you have bad air flow, I mean the heatsink is dinky on these so sandwiching is a nono, I'd say sandwiching any card is a nono when overclocking anyways.
-Drivers were bad.

Other Thoughts: Bought these for $540-$20rebate with 8free games so for about the price of a 770 around the time of purchase (780 now) and more power than the 780ti.
When you overclock these a solid chunk you have to disable ULPS and PowerPlay, also increase the power limit since these things will throttle the card.
