Pros: I have been using this card for a while now and it needs a new, satisfying review. I didn't order this card off of Newegg, I went and purchased this from a man (who originally had CrossFired four of them) 211 some miles away from me for only $220 (plus a card to redeem 3 games of my choice, best deal ever), despite it being pre-owned, it has never let me down. In fact, it has always proven to overkill some games for me, surpassing 60 frames (my monitor only can go as fast as 60 fps, always have to VSync) consistently. I can play any (all of my games including BF4) game on ultra and still surpass 60fps. People say it is loud and "whiny", but I beg to differ, it runs pretty quiet. The fans on this GPU are outstanding at keeping it cool. I have run benchmarks on the highest settings I could find and it managed to never proceed past 55 Celsius. If you want an amazing GPU, consider this one greatly (if you can find it anywhere). If I could, I would have got a second one.
Cons: I don't have a second one to completely overkill every game and benchmark.
Other Thoughts: Please bring this back in stock, this was a great GPU. The other reviewers have no idea how powerful this card is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It does what I need it to do. I was running stock thermal grease, so I felt the need to replace it.
- Lowered idle temperatures ~5 Celsius
- Lowered load temperatures ~4-5 Celsius
Cons: It did seem a little runny (not too much, but noticeable) out of the tube, but I am not deducting and egg for that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works and operates as specified.
Cons: This fan does seem to be loud (could just be my fan). During LAN parties my friends will tell me they can hear my fan over their own computer. This doesn't bother me as my Logitech G35's do muffle outside noises, and when playing games I can't hear anything anyway. Noise doesn't bother me like most people so I am not deducting an egg for that.READ FULL REVIEW
