Pros: Look good.
Cons: Run really hot !!!
I just bought this card with another brand HD7870.
This card run really hot and cannot even run at the highest frequency. The temperature reach 85C at 100% fan speed when running at 725MHz (1250MHz Memory)(100% load).
Other Thoughts: With the same setup, I tried HD7870 from other brand, it can run at 1GHz 100% load at 70C with 60% fan.
I am not sure that I may received a card with a bad heat sink.
Pros: - Work fine with RADEON 5870 and 5850
- semi modular cable management real nice
- Gold certified high efficiency
Cons: - 6 low power rails hard to distribute the power
- Not work with RADEON 7970
When I replace RADEON 5850 with 7970 the power supply trip. The power drawn is around 800W at the time.
Other Thoughts: There is nothing to tell which cable come from which rail. Maybe, I connect the 7970 to the cable which share power with other CPU or other GPU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Single rail, modular, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified
Cons: Cannot supply 800W load if used with any wiring conversion such as SATA power to PCI-E or Molex 4-PIN to PCI-E (which normally come with the graphic card).READ FULL REVIEW
