Pros: Plays games very well at max settings.
Mines for Litecoins EXTREMELY fast
Cons: This thing run extremely hot while gaming to the point where I need to have the fans running at 100% to keep the card running at 70C. I believe the issue is that XFX has used a low quality thermal paste because the fans appear to be working perfectly fine and my case has exceptional airflow.
Other Thoughts: XFX is known for having the best customer support and warrenties, so my hope is that they'll be able to refund my purchase or at the very least replace my 7950 with one that doesn't have this heating issue.
I'm unwilling to change the thermal paste myself as I fear that would void my ruin warrenty.
Pros: 3GB GDDR5
Will work if the GPU doesn't hit 40C
For a month it would go up to 55C then shutdown.
Cons: This thing never worked right straight from the box it would crash my games because of some driver error but I fixed that after a week.
Locked voltages, I planned to overclock this card originally but it seems they locked the voltages and set it so would shutdown your PC once it hits 40C, clearly XFX doesn't want people to overclock.
Even at 100% speeds the system shutsdown because it thinks it's overheating.
Other Thoughts: I will update my review if XFX will allow me to exchange this card for one works.READ FULL REVIEW
