It can finally run (see other thoughts), fan is rather on quiet side vs reference, slightly cooler than reference


Low quality chips: card cannot overclock by much - have had a number of driver crashes and bsod, and RMA'd cards appear to be rather unstable and crash on their own

Other Thoughts:

First card worked alright until trying to run it as primary vga in triple Cross-fire, it stopped working without any overclocking done. RMA'd it, then received a defective card that kept making my system crash and bsod very often (Newegg refused an immediate 2nd RMA until card became more problematic in end of 30 day support, then another RMA). My third card seems to run fine so far, it can overclock up to 1200 MHz max (my OC Gigabyte 7970, OC Sapphire 7970, and Sapphire ref 7970 can run all the way up to +1275 MHz stable); HIS is the weakest link of my cards, especially with bitcoin mining.
