Pros: 1100 core clock 1425 memory @ 1.194 volts. Adjustable fans. Quite for air cooling. Very easy to remove for water cooling. Very good quality thick sturdy backplate. Awesome VRM and easy over locking abilities. Can reach 1250+ no problem
Cons: Not so much a con towards the gpu but towards lack of brand recognition and lack of people actually doing more research than just reading a few newegg reviews. No full cover water blocks available have to use universal water blocks for cooling.
Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these in crossfire cooled with XSPC Raystorm universal water blocks. Both running at 1250 core 1600 memory and temps never go over 45 celsius for either card. In the last 2 years I have had 5 different 7970's in a row. And these without a doubt are the best performing and best quality gpus out of them all. The few people you read of having issues are just less experienced or have less patient. These cards are definitely enthusiast cards and require proper attention if you plan on over locking them any more than they come. As for the other person that posted a review saying these cards do not work with asrock motherboards with uefi in march of 2013. He should have either checked his board better or asked someone who knows what they are doing to install them. I have used these cards on asrock,asus,gigabyteand now a msi motherboard. And with p67 ,z68 and ,z77 chipsets with zero compatibility issues. I would love to be able to get a sponsorship with Powercolor to build a nice performance machine and show everyone what you can do with Powercolor.READ FULL REVIEW
