XFX HD-695X-CDDC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: much quieter than the reference models.
non coated copper heatpipes look good.
mild overclock from factory for those who want more performance without any work
free dirt 3 game

Cons: these cards are hot.
at 100% fan with the factory overclock (830/1300) in crossfire with two inches in between them they are 10-15c hotter than the reference model overclocked to 940/1300 with no space in between.

Other Thoughts: if youre looking for a plug and play card you dont have to do anything to to get solid performance, and take the time to fill out the registration in case they blow up, this card is a decent fit.

if youre looking for a card you can overclock, or like cold case temps (the design of the heatsink and fans blows the air directly into your case) then this card is not for you.

ASUS CuCore Series EAH5770 CuCore/2DI/1GD5 Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: good price point

Cons: massive heating issues with these cards. i bought 4 to mine with. using dummy plugs, i overclocked each card to 950/300 @1250. temps were steady @ 75c for a couple hours, then one card spiked to 98c and stayed there. took it out and prepared to rma. 2 days later another card did the same thing, then another. now i'm left with one card holding at 75 while the others don't drop below 100c.

Other Thoughts: absolutely horrible heatsink design and poor work quality means i'm spending 40% of the cards worth on shipping to get rid of a big mistake.

XFX HD-695A-CNFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: You can't beat this card for the value.
Some quick searching online (tech power up) and you'll find a guide that takes you step by step in unlocking this cards hidden additional shaders and essentially turning it into a 6970 for 70-80$ less.
I'm currently running this card unlocked and at 925/1450 100% stable @ 51c idle 70c load 50% fan.

Cons: they didn't come out until after i bought my 570 and cost me an rma

Other Thoughts: get this card while you can. there are already rumors that AMD put the next batch in production w/ updated pcb's that will not be unlockable.
