5 out of 5 eggsAlready OC'd for your enjoyment

Pros: - Already OC'd in box, best part
- Runs all my games at ultra and 60+ FPS
- Water cooler loop keeps GPU below 80C at any given point
- Build makes for a very interesting conversation piece
- Cooler can be mounted for push / pull air configuration fairly easy
- Idle temps much lower than in specs
- Separate fans (water loop) for GPU core and memory controller / memory = better temps overall

Cons: - Cooler can get hot fairly fast
- Had to replace fan that came with the water radiator, died after 2 weeks
- Had to reconfigure case to accommodate the size, and airflow required to keep the GPU cool

Other Thoughts: Always enjoyed having HIS GPUs and the look they always possessed. Never had issues with them either. This one was no different. The size of the GPU and cooler radiator combine took me by surprise at first but quickly assured me that this was the GPU for me. Took a bit of engineering to create a solution to maximize airflow for the cooler radiator to fit in the 5.25" drive bays, but it was worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Until it Died

Pros: Definitely an amazing card. Incredibly high performance, awesome design and look, and stays very cool and quiet. I got two Corsair 120mm silent blue led fans for the radiator, which looked great and performed even better.

Cons: My main complaint is that after a month of use the card died. I would get moments where I'd look and see my monitor searching for a signal, and no display whatsoever. The VGA Led was always red after this point, so I tested other cards and they all worked. Since it was after 30 days that the incident occurred, and I didn't purchase an additional warranty, I had to RMA through the manufacturer. I'm currently waiting to see how that'll turn out, because I've heard they refuse RMA's due to cards being physically damaged, even if you didn't damage it they'll find a reason not to replace it.

Other Thoughts: Overall, aside from the fact that the card died, I really can't say anything bad about this GPU. My last 4 cards have all been made my HIS and they've never disappointed me before. I've only ever gotten another card in order to upgrade, never because of the card being defective.

Manufacturer Response:
