THIS REVIEW is a continuation of my first review. I gave a lot of information in my previous review about the card itself now have some more! This is my update in regards to crossfire! I hope this helps much! :D

-- Amazing crossfire performance as the title of my review says.

-- Card stays still very controlled in terms of temperature even if cards are positioned as close as they can be

-- Performance increase is so huge!

-- Totally worth the price if you love maximum performance!

-- Looks cool to have two cards inside your computer case!


I actually don't have any cons. Not even being reference cooled card is a con for me.

Other Thoughts:

My graphics performance is actually too much for my poor little Phenom II X4 975 BE @ 3.8 GHz. The only reason any of my videogames lag anymore is because the processor load hits 100% in games like Crysis 3 and Assassin's Creed 3. Definitely not the graphics cards. I will be upgrading to an AMD FX-8350 to unlock the true powerful potential of these phenomenal cards!

Another note, I have in my Cooler Master HAF-X 942 case a cooler master turbine master fan in front of my two 7970s to provide additional cooling performance. The combo is extremely effective. It keeps everything nice and happy.

Diamond's customer support in my experiences regarding my 7970 have been absolutely wonderful! They answered my call very nicely and in a timely fashion, the staff that assisted me have been very friendly as well! Very informative in regards to tech support. My advice if you're having problems with the site is to just phone them, they're really on the ball! 5/5 stars, Diamond! :D I shall always be a returning customer.
