5 out of 5 eggsTen months and still going strong

Pros: I have 2 of these on an Abit AT8 Crossfire motherboard. Great performers. I've run O/C'd most of the time for the past ten months. No artifacting, no overheating - still running the stock cooling fans. I do have liquid cooling on the CPU which keeps the inside case temperatures down, maybe that's why no problems in all this time.

Cons: One cooling fan is starting to get noisy on startup - sounds like blade interference, but I've pulled both GPUs and can't find anything wrong. It goes away after warmup so it's not that big a deal right now.

Other Thoughts: Gotta give Newegg credit for their delivery system and the folks who run it. They must start packing my boxes while I'm still typing in the order.

1 out of 5 eggsArtifacts

Pros: Card delivers excellent crossfire performance. NewEgg delivered fast as always!

Cons: This card began producing artifacts after a couple months even with a water cooling heatsink attached (bought at the same time from NewEgg). Attempts to get warranty replacement on this card have been difficult to say the best.

Other Thoughts: The warranty for the U.S. actually goes through another company called Lexy Pacific Corp. Good luck if you need to return.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: I bought this card for my backup computer, but my mobo died on my old main. ( dang intel ) Got a new system and to save a few $ I dropped this in. I haven't had any trouble with it. Runs Oblivion fine at high / Ultra high video. Most other games too.

Cons: Its huge, blocks pcie slot. its fan is quiet but is louder than I'd like. not variable fan. I was looking to get another for crossfire when i saw all the neg reviews.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any heat problems no artifacts, even after 8 hours of oblivion. my comp is gigabyte ga-p35-dq6 intel e6600
corsair ddr2 2gb(2x1gb) dominator

1 out of 5 eggsHIS has poor quality control

Pros: At first it ran games under windows well, Oblivion, STALKER, etc. Good price for the specified performance.

Cons: Runs very hot, after 6 months has severe artifacting and crashes under any 3-D app. It is now starting to crash even under 2-D normal use. I am RMAing and buying an Nvidia card and selling the RMAed card. It seems to be a common problem and HIS needs to fix the quality control.

Other Thoughts: I will never purchase another HIS product, get an eVga or XFX.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Artifacts

Pros: This is an update to the review I sent in April:

Big heatsink still a plus, fan is still working fine.

Cons: Artifacts are occuring much more frequently (within 30 minutes of playing). When they do occur, the screen pauses and takes about 30 sec for the driver to reset. Occasionally it will just lock-up entirely. The heatsink has been dusted with compressed air, no visible problems.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably be sending this thing back to HIS to make good on the warranty.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: dunno

Cons: card is way too huge, must have a large mobo for this card to fit, its not the lenght, its the height that kills it the heatsink is gigantic.

Other Thoughts: having to return this item for another card, otherwise i was excited

4 out of 5 eggsWow! fast for 2digit price, cooling fixable

Pros: Little effort to lap and polish cooler to mirror finish, since raised GPU area is small. Cheaper than buying a jumbo-silent cooler seperately, July twenty five mail-in even sweeter.
Everything redraws fast, not just games, thanks to incredible 23.4GB memory bandwith and 450->630 core speed-up, already preset. More pipes than any 1650 or 1650Pro. Two 2560x1600 30Inch-LCD-compatible DVI ports (they're both dual-link TDMS), low cost gender-changer (one included) makes either into VGA analog.

Cons: Like most, no paste on half of GPU. Cooler's thin-edge-ridged finish barely touched GPU ( I fixed:"Pros:") Is beveled too narrow to contact lower edge of rectangular GPU. Fan stopped turning? You won't know, with only two wires (no Tach) and no temp sensing.

Other Thoughts: Per Mfg page link, verify power supply labeled: 12V@19Amps, or upgrade to 450Watt.

1 out of 5 eggsOverheats

Pros: Ran smooth for about 5 minutes

Cons: It overheated quite quickly. I believe that fan for this is way too small.

I was playing a 6 year old game called Tribes2 and I got up 170 FPS, but then about 5 minutes into the game a checkered pattern showed up on the screen.

Other Thoughts: If you do decide to get this card then I suggest liquid cooling or adding a nonstock fan

4 out of 5 eggsHIS X1650XT ups and downs

Pros: Large heatsink, OC'ed ram and GPU out of the box: definitely features any gamer wants from a video card. The more recent drivers have also improved my framerate (using catalyst 7.3 right now).

630 (575) MHz gpu, 770/1540(700/1400) ram (ram is reported incorrectly as 730/1460 on newegg's spec sheet), these are the values out of the box (compared to a normal X1650XT's speeds).

Cons: No temperature sensor. Even with a heatsink this large, temp sensors can warn you of fan failure, dust buildup, etc.

OC settings are at the limit, which has lead me to:

Artifacts. Using Google Earth I get artifacts 30 seconds after launching it in the default opengl mode (no problems in DX9).

WoW also develops artifacts after about 2-4 hours of play (DX9 mode).

Haven't seen artifacts in other games like SupCom, NFS Carbon, ST: Legacy, or 3DMark yet (all ran in DX9), but I haven't had time to test it extensively.

Other Thoughts: To solve my artifact problem, I reduced the speeds to 621 MHz cpu, 756/1512 MHz ram. I tried several different driver versions (both from ATi and modified ones), and each produced the same artifact problem.

The large heatsink will block a neighboring expansion slot. If you have a small PCIe 1x card you might be able to get them to fit, but longer boards will block the video card's heatsink fan inlet.
