XFX Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 HD-697A-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast card - but, at that price, it should be.

Cons: As has been previously reported, you need to cool it with liquid nitrogen or run the fan at 75% which makes it sound like there's a turbine in the room. It shuts down when it seems to sense it's going to melt. I run it at default settings are it still has heating issues. I would not buy it again and I will not recommend it. I am currently looking for a replacement.

XFX Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 HD-697A-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seems to work well - all games run at max.

Cons: The card is a blast furnace - I have to manually turn the fan to 75% when I play BC2, otherwise, the card will shut down as it approaches 100C! I would not buy one of these. I'm sorry I did.

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Light weight - tool-less HD and DVD areas work well - enough room for the average ATX form build.

Cons: I hope the switches hold up - they seem fine now, but, that's one area where cheap can hurt, we'll see.
