Pros: The overall build quality is high and it seems like it might last awhile. Simple to install IF you open your case ALL the way up (this is part of the con). Take off the covers and it looks sweet!
Cons: I feel like it could run quicker and push more air, there maybe away to do it, but as it connects to molex I could think of many specific easy way to do it.
Because the bracket is detachable, without it if you have a case that supports "snap -in" screw-less drive bays it won't work with these, so I opened it all up and screw-ed it in, not a biggie but something to think about it.
Other Thoughts: Still 4 eggs because build quality is nice and they look cool. Also the covers slide on and off easily.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DIYPC MiniQ7-B USB 3.0 w/Dual Red Fans Black SECC ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Looks sweet!
Cons: A little small for bigger cards.
Other Thoughts: To the man with the cd try problems; I had an issue just like that with a computer case and eventually i found out that you can remove the end piece of the drawer. It usually slides up or down off of the drive tray and that completely fixed my problem with the snags, plus it looked a little better in my option. Anyway, hope that helps.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: What else is there to say, this is one of the best cards on the market... and when I say, "one of" I really mean, in the top 3! This is a powerhouse of graphical beastliness! With MSI Afterburner it can crank out 1950Mhz on the memory clock with no problems or instability. I can clearly see now that the hold ups in my system are in the cpu and memory all overclocked.
Visually its not THAT different than most cards... that is until you look closely after you plug it in! There is a glowing light under the word Sapphire which is sweet and the back of the card has a very sexy and sleek metal plate with the "Vapor-X" across it. Also there are little LEDs on the top of the card that make it easily visible to see which bios you are running (stock vs OC). Standard connectors for AMD GPU's.
Cons: Could possibly blow your sucks off. Nothing else... Wait. maybe put the power pins on the back of the card instead of the top. I bet small case people would have a fit.
