Cons: - Poor quality control
- Small parts not as great quality
- Can be loud at times
Other Thoughts: At first the case was amazing. Has plenty of room and you can easily work inside of it. The problem is longevity. The usb and power panel stopped working after about a year. I submitted an RMA for the part but never received it, it was constantly on back order. Eventually the case started to buzz and I couldn't figure out why. It appears some of the rivets simply started to give out. After about 3 years the LEDs gave out. At year 5 The case would constantly hum and buzz (I replaced fans to ensure it's not them giving out). I used fan rubber mounts with no luck. I finally decided to ditch the case and went for something smaller and less costly. I wanted to love the case but unfortunately the many QA issues just killed it for me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great bang for the buck. If you purchase any 7870 you won't regret it. It will run modern games (BF3, Diablo 3, etc) on the highest settings without a problem.
Low cost / high performance
Cons: The card it self has no cons in my opinion.
However, I doubt I'll be buying HIS again. Read on.
I've owned this specific card since July 2012. The fan died on me in Feb and I had to RMA it, I've been without a video card since Feb 18th. I have to say that the RMA process with HIS has been the worst experience I've had. When an RMA is needed you don't go through HIS you go through some third party vendor that lacks completely in communication. I've had to contact them to verify they even received my video card. Once they receive you are informed not to contact them for 2-4 weeks. At this point I have no idea where my replacement is, or when I should even expect one.
I don't understand why a replacement takes 3+ weeks. If HIS wants to hold on to its customers they should starting doing RMA on their own or through someone else.
