Pros: Fast! Coolest card! GPU and VRM stays cooler than any other 7970.
Metro 2033 may be the only game this card can't run 60 plus fps.
Has a little headroom for overclocking beyond the 1200 gpu, 6400 mem speeds offered by the lethal boost.
No issues thus far using 12.8 whql drivers and the Trixx software works fine as well.
Back plate is awesome.
6gb of ram is cool for those with Eyefinity or high res monitors.
Cons: 1 egg subtracted for noise. It will get loud while gaming so beware if you need a silent machine. The tone of the fans isn't that bad but it will be loader than any other component in your case. If Sapphire could have used something like the Accelero extreme fans for less noise this card would be the best thing ever.
Price is steep.
Other Thoughts: It would have been nice to see the none toxic 6 gb version up for sale as well for price comparison.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1. PCI-E slots are well spaced for triple slot cards in crossfire.
2. PLX chip, Bigfoot Killer NIC, dual BIOS, and price.
3. Runs cooler than previous board (UD5H).
4. Bundle is pretty good.
5. Overclocks well and F5 bios is stable.
6. Recon 3D sound has headphone amp.
7. PCI-E power connector for extra power to board for crossfire configurations.
Cons: 1. Creative recon 3D sounds better than expected but has a lot of bleed through noise. Can here slight hiss during quite times and can hear hd activity through headphones.
2. Bios doesn't include new Intel Raid Rom for trim in raid.
Other Thoughts: Fantastic board and priced better than competitors. Probably the best gaming board I've ever used.READ FULL REVIEW
