Pros: Great Board!!!
For as long as it lasted. i wish it lasted longer. but, oh well. got almost 4 years out of it. ran it pretty hard the last year or two with a couple of highly intense graphics games. Pirates and World of Tanks.
used Graphics card 4870 x2. not two cards. the x2 card.
Cons: did not last as long as i would have liked it to. and i did keep it cool.

Pros: Great Card!!
Set Card at 45% fan speed and it will Work Great for a Gamer.and it won't be too loud.

2) Card Runs Very Hot!!! at stock settings.70-90 Degree's c.
3) Does not (Sleep) in Windows 7 64 bit home premium with catalyst ver 2012.0704.122.388
Card Does a major failure , locks up system, cannot shut down. must remove graphics card and replace with a different card for one re-boot. system will not get any signal to monitor at all. i installed a nvidia card into system worked fine, then re-installed this card and drivers and it's works great again! Scared me, that why i thought it finally died on last review. but, i figured it out.
Other Thoughts: I Wish i could Select a Gpu and Temp Set point to have it Automatically keep the Card At that Temp!READ FULL REVIEW
