Pros: Product is exactly what is advertised, and you will see not only a performance increase over the 6970, but space savings in your case (two slot cooler and smaller PCB) and in energy. Card also over clocks easily, the reduced power draw helping keep it cooler even with the stock heat sink/ fans. Was able to get 7950 levels of performance out of it with little trouble!
Cons: Card doesn't over clock as high as what the reviews I could find were saying it could easily do. Shroud for the heat sink is still a little goofy and un-nessisarily designed. What's wrong with just some nice, low profile straight runs of plastic? Ram can get a bit toasty when over clocked. Also, who's idea was it to design screws that stick out of the back of the card almost an sixteenth of an inch? Please guys, each smidgen of space is important in even a full ATX tower.
Other Thoughts: Did some test fitting of my system, and on the Sabertooth X58 Crossfire edition motherboard, it appears there will be enough room to actually use the two x16 PCIe 2.0 ports, whereas Sapphires 6970 was far too large and kludgy to do so.
I want to tear it apart and see if I can't get the temperatures down with a little lapping of the heat sinks and some nicer thermal material.
This review is from: Sennheiser MX 85 3.5mm Connector Earbud Sport Earphone
Pros: Got these in the other day, and I have to say that this is the first pair of in-ear headphones that actually will stay in my head while I do something other than sit still. The sound is good, with the bass solid and the highs not breaking up or sounding tinny even when listening to violin based classical music.
Cons: The cord is orange... oh so very bright orange. Also the left earbuds cord is a wee bit short, so I have to clip the lead a little close to my neck.
Other Thoughts: Other than those minor issues, they've been great so far.READ FULL REVIEW
