Pros: Low power loss, single rail, modular. Its over volt protection stopped a XFX 7970 ghz graphics card from bursting into flames and damaging my system not once, but twice. Runs Intel 3770k overclocked to 4.5, two GTX 680's overclocked and multiple ssd's with no problem. Quiet, as in zero detectable noise that me or my wife can discern.
Cons: Cables are cheap I had to re-seat pins on occasion. They were falling out of the housing. Not using all cables so I had to route them to no where to improve air flow for one of my intake fans.
Other Thoughts: I have a bottom mounted PSU on my case so I can not see the pretty red fan. Zero exhaust problems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When its running its works great.
Cons: Bought this it died in two days time. TMZ. Received new card died after 45 min of playing Crysis 3. Getting refund but because of promo deal only receiving 260 of original 469 I paid. There is a common problem with this card ramping up its load suddenly then frying itself. It drew about 568 watts then the fans stopped and it broke. I am upset guess ill try Asus if I can find one.
Other Thoughts: I never received my codes for the promo just emails saying they sent it, this means I paid 180 dollars for two games I most likely will never receive. I paid for Crysis 3 out of pocket because I wanted to play it. So beware of that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Performance was astounding at 1920x 1080 with everything maxed out I recieved 54 fps a second avg on Crysis 3 beta. Drivers are a messy thing to deal with Amd has made it much easier in recent months. With beta drivers I was having no issues with this card. I heard it overclocks well.
Cons: I had the card only 2 days before it shorted, I was happily playing DMC at 120 fps when my psu protection kicked the pc off. The pc will no longer boot with the 7970 ghz installed. Wanted a refund I can only get 260 back due to game promo being non refundable (2 digital download games are 170 bucks? Are they special editions?) ,with Neweggs quick Rma I accidentally requested refund before I knew this . Soooo it looks like I will try a round two with XFX cards after I call and sort a return instead refund deal.
Other Thoughts: If the card was functional I would be tearing games up right now. Integrated GPU here I come wooooo!!! Calling new egg today to figure out the mess. I contacted XFX and have not heard a reply yet....READ FULL REVIEW
