Pros: Great Price
Works as expected
Runs cool and quiet
Cons: Silly Mail in rebate rules ( one per customer)
Would have liked to order 2 or 3.
Instant rebates good.
Mail in rebates not so good
Other Thoughts: I ordered this GPU before there we any reviews,and was a little worried after reading some of the less than stellar reviews that started posting. Now that I have installed it I can report that I have had none of the problems some others have reported.
1. The card installed perfectly
2. The fan is quiet, at least as quiet as the Sapphire 6850 it is replacing.
3. The fan speed adjusts based on temp. It has never needed to go above 50%.
4. On factory settings I burned it in with Fur Mark and the temp. never went above 74 c. (still quiet)
5. I ran it a bit on Bio Shock Infinite. On 1080 p, highest settings it ran 60 fps without breathing hard. (still quiet)
If you want to check your fan speed and performance go into the AMD Control Center and click on GPU Overdrive under the Performance tab. There you can see the temp and fan speed of the GPU. I honestly can’t hear much difference between idle and 100% fan speed.
This is my first Power Color Product and so far I couldn’t be happier. I have not done extensive testing on games but I would expect it to perform as any other 7850. Time will tell on durability, any issues here would obviously affect this review.
Pros: See other thoughts
Cons: See other thoughts
Other Thoughts: As an update to be fair to this reseller, I did receive several support emails over night. Suggestions where made which did not improve the situation so I requested an R.M.A.
I received a complete refund no questions asked so I would not hesitate to buy from this seller.
Pros: Comes with good reviews
Cons: There are many, see other thoughts.
Far from plug and play
Other Thoughts: I was intending to use this to extend the range a bit on my existing wired/wireless network. The setup wizard may work if you are not going to change any other settings but Getting back into the configuration page is a pain so it’s better to change any advance settings first. After a few resets I got it set up and working and I could access the configuration page from my computer. This lasted about 5 min. until it crashed and crashed my wireless router with it. Every time you reset you have to reenter your router’s passkey and go through the whole setup again.
No help on the web. No answer when you call support. No answer when you email support. After spending too much of a day on this thing it’s going back.
