Love them 02/09/2014
Love these cards! I picked up two of these during the Black Friday sale so they were $149 a piece PLUS a $40 rebate, so I paid 109.99 each. Absolutely worth it. They replaced a single Sapphire HD 6850 1GB card.
Setting up crossfire was extremely easy. Plug the cards in, plug the bridge in, open catalyst and enable crossfire... done. So far I have yet to see any microstuddering during gameplay.
I have maxed these cards out during mining. On altcoins I get about 700Mh/s on I 13 temps get to about 75C on the main card and 65C on the secondary.
I am able to max out resolution and settings on most games and they run about 60C during intense battles like on Crysis 3. Cards idle around 35-40C depending on ambient temps.
I don't have any real cons associated with this card. They are a short PCB, but a LONG heatsink, for me this is no problem in my full ATX Antec DF-85 case, but if you are thinking about putting these in a mid-ATX then you may run into some issues.
Asus GPU Tweak let's you overclock and monitor these cards very easily. You can also mess around with voltages and power targets, great for mining and gaming.
