NOISE

Pros: None really

Cons: This is the loudest 7970 on the market. VisionTek, unlike the other vendors, VisionTek chose to use the reference cooling and not use heat pipes and better fans. When under 57% load the fan runs at 70% and 65% load its at 100%, loud enough to almost drown out a TV.

I have purchased 3 VisionTek cards (same time), all 3 have had to be RMA'ed. Very difficult Tech Support for RMA's etc. Called and got "Please Call Back During Normal Business Hours" on a non holiday at 11:03 am their time.

Other Thoughts: Please look elsewhere for any component needed other than this company

DO NOT BUY

Pros: None

Cons: Do not buy products from visiontek, they are complete garbage. After a year I am on my 3rd card. My first burnt out randomly after a few months (not overclocked) and the 2nd was DoA and now my current one runs like GARBAGE.
I have tried to contact Visiontek for a refund but their website has been hijacked and after I did my research it has been that way for a few years. And after I did a bit more digging I found a number for Visiontek and tried calling, but nobody picked up.

Other Thoughts: Save your money DO NOT BUY FROM VISIONTEK!

Poor card and bad Warranty Service

Pros: Was cheap when I bought it. Can be firmware updated to a 7970 GE

Cons: On my third card. I'm not modding them or flashing them, yet they just keep dying. The first one was DOA. Second lasted a year then died, and the third lasted about 30 minutes and died. Now they tell me they are out of stock of 7970s and I'll have to wait up to a month to get a replacement after I've already waited three weeks. That's the worse warranty service I've ever seen and I'm a computer tech. NEVER buy Visiontek.

Other Thoughts: The so called lifetime warranty is just three years and takes well over a month to get a replacement. Be warned.

Didn't get the card pictured

Pros: The card worked fine and overclocked to 1125/1575MHz on stock voltage with Afterburner. It ran cool and quiet enough with a custom fan profile. Temps and noise are no better or worse than other card with a reference design fan and shroud.

Cons: The card I recieved is not the card pictured on line. My card had a blue PCB instead of the black one in the photo. Also, it wasn't a reference design card because the mounting bracket for the GPU cooler is different than what is shown in the photos. I returned the card and purchased a Diamond 7970 instead as I will be water cooling and need a reference design card.

Other Thoughts: Newegg really needs to update the photos and description of this card. That said, they made the return process very easy and even paid for my return shipping. Thanks Newegg for the great customer service.

Great card, missing parts...

Pros: I'm here to speak the truth, and only the truth. For almost 3 years I have been running (2) Spphire HD 5850 in crossfire mode. I figured it was time to upgrade, and since AMD pushed their 8000 series from Q2 to Q4, i went ahead and got a 7970, this one in particular. Even with this the other 2 in crossfire mode, this one doubles the performance. Heres the kicker - I am only running it in a PCI-Express 2.0 slot (CROSSHAIR V-FORMULA), which is bottle necking the performance. Note, this is without the BIOS update to make it into a GHTZ Edition and/or any overclocking. You do the math. This card is worth every penny.

Cons: Once again I am here to speak the truth, and only the truth. I purchased this card not only because of the reviews and specs, but because I was going to set up my first eyefinity. When opened the package, to my surprise there was only (1) HDMI to DVI adapter, (1) VGA to DVI adapter, (1) Molex to 6-pin connector, and (1) Molex to 8-pin connector. NO ACTIVE MINI-DP TO DVI ADAPTER?! NO ACTIVE MINI-DP TO DVI ADAPTER!! I Googled, and Googled some more...and this card IS suppose to come with an Active Mini-DP to DVI adapter, did not get one. I am only hoping I can speak with someone to resolve this matter, because paying $500 (after tax and over night shipping) and not receiving everything is not good business...especially after being a loyal customer for over 8 years. Other than that, there are no problems, which is why I still rated this cards performance "5 EGGS".

Other Thoughts: I would be very grateful if anyone has any tips on who and/or how I may be able to contact someone regarding this issue. Thank you.

Excellent Card

Pros: - blistering fast card
- Eyefinity 4 monitor capable
- single card can run Crysis 2 on Very High at 5970x1080
- very stable and runs basically everything I throw at it

Cons: - price
- GHz edition came out 1 month after I bought
- product arrived tampered with (looked like it had been opened previously and resealed...card was fine though)

Other Thoughts: For my needs, this card has delivered, top of the line performance for top of the line money. It's no slouch. And I am tempted to throw in another one of these for Crossfire + Eyefinity. I was warned that one card for Tri-monitor Eyefinity was insufficient...which is totally not true. This card will capably power most current games in Eyefinity Tri-monitor
