Too expensive for failure

Pros: Price if it would have lasted.

Cons: Price, because it failed just after warranty expired.

Other Thoughts: Figured what the heck I'll try PowerColor. I regret buying it now, and can't recommend this brand.

Still Going Strong in 2016

Pros: Runs everything that I have thrown at it, WOT, WOWS and WOW.

Cons: Runs a bit hot and is noisy.

Other Thoughts: Purchased on 5-12-2013 and has been used for various games. Seems to run around 67-72 deg, mainly in the high 60's with WOT lately. No reason to upgrade at this time.

Overheats UNTIL you remove the plastics!

Pros: So to address the overheating complaints, it DOES run hot, but the solution is extremely simple: remove the plastic shell. Its like 2 screws and some gently jimmying, but once its off your temps will decrease mightily.

Cons: I've never had any issues with this card, and it still runs quite well even after I *might* have used it to mine altcoins back in Feb 2014..

Fast but Hot

Pros: -Still pretty fast after two years. Most things do not stress it too badly. Maybe Star Citizen gives the most trouble and I do tone down the effects there for performance sake.
-Can overclock it pretty well with one issue (see cons)

Cons: -The fan is a loud whining noise.
-Heat is a problem with this card. There is only 1 fan to cool the GPU. On stock settings, this is okay, but if you attempt to OC you will run into a heatwall very fast.

It's trash....Didn't even last a year.

Pros: Well starting off, it was nicely priced and performed well... but had i known it wouldn't last in the long run i would have reconsidered.

Cons: Had it just under a year when it started to give artifacts in swtor, MoH:WarFighter, GW2, and more. I am not sure if it is just poor manufacturing on PowerColors part or what, but for the price i really expected to get more then a year of use out of it. I try to be a bit frugal with my money so i want to get the most value and bang for my buck, and particularly reliability, i get none of this from this product. Hell, i can't even get to the company website half the time to complain because it often is down.

Other Thoughts: save your money go with a better known company, get a better built product, and a better customer support, and PR department that will put some effort into establishing themselves as a reliable company.

Put a piece of wood in your PCIE slot instead...

Pros: It was cheap when I bought it. Evidently not anymore.

Cons: Broke after 4 months of use. Returned it for RMA to Powercolor. They said they would fix it but it took nearly a month, and their website said 14 days. 2 weeks after I received and installed the repaired card, it broke again. I sent it back to them and it has been about a week and a half....

Other Thoughts: At least a slim piece of wood fitted to your PCIE slot wouldn't cause your computer to power off and make dying light/fan flickering.

Power color won't repair under warranty

Pros: Card worked great until the fan failed

Cons: Fan stopped working 6 months into ownership. Power Color said it was too dusty and would not replace fan within the warranty period

Other Thoughts: Never buy another Power Color product. I clean my computer very often and the two little bits of dust they said was the cause of the fan failure is ridiculous.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello,

This is Raymond from powercolor. A video card that has excessive dust can results in the bearings in the fan to seize. We cannot honor fan warranty for such cases. The card however, is still in warranty.

Best Regards,
Raymond
