Pros: "GEEK" is a moron. i run a quadfire 7970 setup with 4 komodos +8350. while i will concede intel scores higher on SYNTHETIC benches. by no means does an FX series 8xxx or 9xxx bottleneck this gpu.
i also have several friends with 8350s+quadfire7970s and have ZERO ISSUES and cards scale EVENLY @ full usage
another pro is 6gb vram. this +2x7970 or 1x7990 pushes HIGH end displays 3/6x1440p/1080p or 3x1080p@120/144hz extremely well and the extra vram is nice over a 7970 ( not mentioning saphires 6gb 7970 )
Cons: this card
1 will not oc as well as 2x7970s ( assuming voltage unlocked ) due to less power available per GPU
2 Does not have a blower.... lets all face it... they are sexay !~
Other Thoughts: The komodo block for this unit is just sexay. i may just buy this GPU just to put that block in top
quad or tri komodos are just amazing
Cons: i was asking a question via phone about the warranty (installing an aftermarket block on this card) and they answered it followed by a "most companys do not allow it because it can damage the card." i said no they dont. fxf safire just to name afew. before i could Finnish that statement they hung up on me. i dont know about you but i will never purchase something from a company that hangs up on a customer who is being very reasonable for this they lost a customer for lifeREAD FULL REVIEW
