Most Critical Review

If you value service, stay away from this company

HIS Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Dual GPU Onboard CrossFire Video Card w/ Eyefinity H597F2GDG
HIS Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Dual GPU Onboard CrossFire Video Card w/ Eyefinity H597F2GDG

Pros: Fast shipping from newegg, when the card works correctly, its screaming fast

Cons: I've had a ticket in with HIS since 4/1/10, with the grey bar/3d lockup issue that nearly every 5970 owner has had. First response took 15 days to hear back, then 5, then over a month. They have a bios fix for the card, but not a flasher for windows 7, yet they didnt give the bins so I could flash, so still im stuck w/o a very functional card.

Overall Review: HIS Tech's customer support, is simply the WORST I've ever EVER had the pleasure of dealing with. We're up to over 2 months now in the ticket system, and now they're saying RMA? Ya.. I guess they dont read or refuse to view the outside world as its a 5970 problem many, many are having, and the bios they have will fix it, yet I'm sure it will be another few weeks of waiting to get some other 1/2 baked response w/o a solution. Would be nice if HIS responded to their tickets / RMA's as fast as they do to reviews on newegg, which I'm sure this will have a copy/paste response below it soon enough from HIS, which will do about as good as banging your head against a wall over and over. But hey on the bright side, 3 screens makes a mean excel spreadsheet, since its about all I can run on this card w/o 3d crashes.

They Blow

COOLER MASTER Excalibur R4-EXBB-20PK-R0 120mm Case Fan
COOLER MASTER Excalibur R4-EXBB-20PK-R0 120mm Case Fan

Pros: These fans are quiet, can be mounted in either direction, and blow a good bit of air for the noise they make

Cons: Little pricey, but with their design its worth it.

Overall Review: Honeycomb walls really help with air flow in tight spaces.
