1 out of 5 eggsUnlucky or bad card

Pros: - Metal outfit.
- Black plate looks cool.
- Led light.

Cons: I was having a very bad time and disappointment. I did research about this card. And it seem to be a good one. Unfortunately, its only work the first 15 minutes out the box, then the screen appear weird images, freeze. I restart, my motherboard won't recognize the card anymore. (I have tried different PCI-E slot). First i thought its a motherboard's fault, but then i asked my friend to borrow his graphic card for testing and its working well.

RMA is on the way to Newegg, another 2 weeks of waiting.

5 out of 5 eggsMining rig

Pros: I mine this card, and get 20GH+ on Aiden Coin (ADN). Not 2MH on Litecoin mining.

Cons: price is a bit steep

Other Thoughts: Looking forward to seeing the price drop a little.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice, but a few minor things short of perfect

Pros: (1) This card is seriously fast
(2) For the performance you get it is very quiet, though slightly audible
(3) It looks really pretty if you have a case with a window in it.
(4) Installation was surprisingly easy (water-cooling used to be a black-magic art to get to work well). The flexibility of the hoses for the closed-loop-cooler are surprisingly good and the length allows you to get around obstacles in the case (think CPU tower cooler etc.) without being too long
(5) The construction of the card / build quality is excellent
(6) Did I mention it is really fast

Cons: (1) There is no games bundle, which seems a bit cheap considering the price-tag
(2) When not running games etc. the cooler is pretty much as loud as when running flat out, so not like a air-cooled card that will throttle down to almost silent

Some may say this is all nit-picks, and for all intent and purpose it is, however when you shell out $1500 for a card, stuff like this is important.

Other Thoughts: The Closed-Loop-Cooler does in my case not clear my CPU tower cooler and hence cannot be mounted in a vertical position above the I/O port of the motherboard, this is not a problem, but if your case does not have a horizontal mounting spot with ample room, you may run into problems fitting this thing in.

I noticed when I mount the cooler in a horizontal position there is a slight sound of water movement inside the cooler (sounds like there is a tiny amount of air trapped inside the closed-loop). It is not audible when the system is running and does not seem to have any effect on the performance of the cooling solution, so nothing to worry about.

other than that I can only say "I'm impressed".

I work for as a lead product designer for a really large hardware and software OEM, and I see literally hundreds of designs every year and frankly this one is up there with the best; Yes, the card is very expensive, but then again you clearly get a product that a team of talented engineers really poured their hearts and souls into.

It is the small things that impress here; things like the shield around the card that have not just been deburred to deal with sharp edges, but actually folded around such there is zero chance of cutting the hoses for the closed-loop-cooling. The fact that someone took time to ensure the screws that mounts the cooler are of the right length and have a choice of normal AND lock washers.

Why is that important you may ask -- well it is a testament -- if you as a design team have time to look after the small things like that, then you know the big things (like the first standard closed-loop-cooler in the industry etc.) must be 100% solid, simply because as a design team the big stuff is your focus and you only sweat the deburring and screws as a very, very distant second -- well done AMD !!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, young drivers

Pros: Much quieter than my previous dual GPU system. The cooler is much larger than it looks on packaging, and it's not getting warm at all, and the fan noise is hardly noticable. Temps read 60C during extended load and the highest I've seen it is 64C. Quick benchmarks shoot it into the 50s. Deployed as single solution, but might get a second one and ramp to a 4k monitor. Viewing at 1600p (almost exactly 2x 1080p monitors by pixel count) is exceptionally smooth.

Should be able to make 2mh/s for you GPU miners, but I haven't run that test just yet.

I'd say this is an easy winner over the TitanZ's current 3k price tag so I expect nVidia to follow suit and bring the price down. That said, I don't know if they're doing hybrid cooling yet, and I like the AMD better for this generation for exactly that reason. I don't expect they will trump this one just yet. As always, next year is a game changer, but this year I'd say this is the best enthusiast card for the two manufacturers.

Also, if in doubt go with Sapphire - their tech support got back with me in about 12 hours with two or three emails and they have their act together. Hats off to them!

Cons: Drivers are young. AMD doesn't support Vista drivers though you can force them to load - it's a problem for people like me that run a workstation for 8-10 years between hardware refresh cycles. Not all workstation equipment gets frequent driver updates. Win7 is the same kernel as Vista (6.0 versus 6.1) so I'm not sure what that is about... even Microsoft just killed XP, so why AMD killed Vista before XP was even gone is some kind of mystery.

I do think AMD should list the card as "Win7/8" rather than "Windows" if that is their direction. Obviously you need 64 bit O/S to run this monster.

Can't really say the price is a "con" because you do get what you pay for. I was planning on a waterblock, pump, etc, but this card really fit the value proposition, so I can't downrate them for price given integrated liquid cooling.

Other Thoughts: Rig is Supermicro X7DWA-N, with 32gb memory, Areca 1280-ML 2GB RAID, 4 Agility2 SSDs in RAID 5, numerous capacity drives (8 drives total) with two Xeon E5440 chips

Will probably update comp in 2-3 years, but this mobo can still go to 64gb, so it's six year age is no big deal.

Got a 1600w power supply (the Coolmax on newegg) which is manufactured by the same company that made the Rosewill Hercules. It looks identical. Highly recommended but it obviously doesn't have the workstation 1x5 header... it's not required, though, so I went without it.

Might go quadfire to get into 4k monitors later this year, but keeping options open for faster generation of cards. DigitalStorm shows perfect quadfire scaling, and TomsHardware shows horrible quadfire scaling. Waiting to see which one is right.

Be sure you have 3" depth for that cooler, or plan to run it outside of case. Wouldn't have minded longer lines for a more creative cooling solution.

Fan is removable/replacable, powered by card, and power connection is zip-tied to one of the coolant lines (an open question I had that no picture really showed an answer to). This means if your fan goes out in the coming years, it's not a big deal to replace and you don't have to dump the video card for a silly issue like that.

5 out of 5 eggsTop of the Hill...for now.

Pros: this card is a potent package. It's about a foot long, it's almost 3 full PCI slots wide in the case - and it's amazing at what it can do in just a single card configuration.

Avg about 2075kh/s with a litecoin mining rig

Push BF4 @ 5760X1080 to a nifty 90+ avg frames per sec

Play Titanfall at 5760X1080 without any sort of compromise

Marvel Heroes - Oh yeah, it'll do that all day and still not break a sweat.

I'm still benchmarking this beast and getting good solid numbers from it so far.

If you have the means, then go for it.

Cons: Power needs, Size, proce

Other Thoughts: None to speak of at this time
