5 out of 5 eggs20months so far

Pros: Still the best price/performance for gaming and gpu mining. Its been 20months so far since my 1st review of this card and the ones i have are still crunching numbers.

The 5 i have run 60-68c 24/7 in my custom rig and still have yet to show signs of failure**.

They are very easy to take apart. Fans, heatsink, and all plastic removes with little effort to clean dust out everywhere very cleanly. Thermal paste is a always wet/spreaded compound so no need to reapply.

I primary run them x11 with 3,600 khash 975core 1400stock memory. Fans are always at 100%

Gaming wise @ 1080:
130fps league of legends all max
80fps world of warcraft all max, 50fps in org/stormwind
300fps in CS:GO no AA

Cons: **1 out of the 5 cards i bought are showing signs of failure on the fan. One of the 2 fans spins slower and makes this squeaky sound when it operates. Sounds like the bearings are shot.

Unsure how i would go about replacing the fan on this thing. Its very thin and small, almost specific for this model?

Other Thoughts: i bought mine when they were $220, and now they are $150!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money

Pros: Bought this along with a A10-5800 and 8GB of Gskill to revive an older FM2 gaming system. I must say I am blown away by this card compared to my older 250X 1GB which replaced a Radeon 5870. So this thing has been a major upgrade. Here is a list of titles I've been running and avg FPS. On windows 8.1 w/ 1TB WDBlue

GTA V: High with Draw/population/ maxed and with FX on normal, on 1080p avg 45FPS even in combat

Tomb Raider on Ultra on 1080p avg FPS of 50

ARMA 3 mix of high and medium high at 1080p avg FPS 40/50

Battlefield 4 Ultra on 1080p avg FPS 38-55 depending on the map size

Alien Isolation on High with a few Ultra settings and FX off at 1080p avg 36-48 FPS depending on a few fx effects like fire.

Oh, and it's running great with a 630watt Rosewill bronze rated power supply

Cons: My only con was with the packaging. Mine did not come with a booklet, CD or a power cord, I assume that they believed most people would have a PSU with one, but this seems just lazy. I ended up getting their tuning program off the HIS site.

Other Thoughts: Great card, my last HIS card went for 4yrs

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good card for the price!

Pros: It's a good GPU for the price (bought it for $140) and runs most of my games at high to ultra at 60 fps! Played Borderlands 2, Dark Souls 2, Chivalry, L4D2, Payday 2, Alien Isolation, Divinity, The Evil Within, Saints Row 4, Sleeping Dogs, and Witcher 2 at 60 fps from high to ultra no problem (using AMD FX 8320)! The two fans helps the GPU from going high in temperature and it's very quiet.

Cons: The GPU was a little dirty/dusty when I opened it. Not sure what was up with that. I thought I ordered a refurbished one but it wasn't after double checking my order. Furthermore, I was getting some screen tears so I took it out and put it back in and it went away. It's slightly slanted looking from the outside of my computer, but it's not really a problem.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a pretty good card. If you're on a budget, get this card and you will not be disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Up until it died, 1 week after install it seemed like a great deal.

Cons: No screen after a week. Put my old 5850 back in and everything is fine.

Other Thoughts: I had not sent in my rebate forms with my upc label before my card failed and was able to exchange with newegg with no hassle outside of paying for shipping.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
We are sorry for your situation and suggest you try to check following steps.
1. If possible verify the HIS graphics card on another working system or verify another working card on your motherboard. Need to ensure that the platform is no problem.
2. If you need further assistant, please feel free to contact our customer service department directly.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Can't comment on it since my computer screen would flicker then go black when I installed the card.

Cons: Ah....DOA

Other Thoughts: Don't cut out the UPC code until you know the card works.

I thought the card was not working because of the driver, so I put my old card back in so I can see my monitor and upload the current driver from the manufacturer website. I deleted all previous drivers installed the new drivers and , powered down my computer. Put the HIS iPower IceQ X² Boost H270QM2G2M Radeon R9 270 in and powered my computer back up. After a few minutes with my computer on, my monitor would flicker again, get stuck and then "fade to black".
I thought I would have no problem getting a replacement. But not so, since I already sent in my UPC for the rebate. I don't know why it's a problem....I'm not returning it for a refund..Just trying to get one that works....Just send me a replacement and put it in the old box with the UPC code cut out....Even with this messed up replacement request, I still compliment customer service who have helped me numerous times in the past.
I've had several Gigabyte video cards with no troubles..This is my first HIS card....may be my last....

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Bought this one because it was just a few dollars more than the 260X and by far was the better bang for the buck. It only uses 1 6pin so its better on power than my 7870. It's also very quiet so that's a big plus.

Cons: It feels a little flimsy when holding it, not a big deal really since its going to be in your computer.

Other Thoughts: The single 6pin is great for slightly lower end builds but also makes it harder to push the card when OCing. I haven't tried to OC it yet because my gf doesn't play too demanding games (except GW2....which still isn't optimized for anything) Otherwise for 140 dollars (which is 120 dollar cheaper than my asus 7870 i bought new...) it;s an amazing deal.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat card

Pros: -Cheap
-very good value
-good display support
-excellent cooling design

Cons: -AMDs drivers are a bit lacking. Installed this in a system for a friend and with the newest drivers (omega drivers to be exact) he had blue screens when he tab between programs. The issue was resolved by going back a driver set.

1 out of 5 eggsAMD Bad - Newegg Returns Worse

Pros: Card looked good at first, but started dropping out of game. After a day it dumped out of games to blue screen or locked up computer.

Cons: Card died

Other Thoughts: Ordered AMD video card online for Christmas in November. Price seemed good because of a big rebate. Got the card quickly and installed it. Mailed in the rebate (with the UPC code as required) and card stopped working. Returned the card but Newegg Warranty is USELESS because of missing UPC code. I GUESS THATS WHY THEY HAVE YOU MAIL THE UPC CODE IN FOR A REBATE. Bad card is being mailed back to me from Newegg and I still haven't gotten a rebate. Did I mention that now my son's computer isn't working for Christmas?
