This card ROCKS !!!
Pros: Awesome graphics and easy overclock with ATI overdrive. GPU clock settings are stable at 1125 MHZ and the memory clock is at 1525 MHZ. If you do overclock with overdrive make sure you kick up the voltage all the way to the right at +20. These speeds are faster than the black edition stock settings. Did I mention I love this card.
Cons: Just a bit louder than my 5870 card when turned up to 90% fan speeds, but with my headset on and gaming I don't even notice.
Overall Review: I am a XFX customer for life. So far I have bought 3 XFX cards and they have all been reliable and stable when overclocking. GET THIS CARD, you won't be disappointed.
ASRock Rocks !
Pros: Easy install, easy overlock. Had it to 4.7ghz on the first try and not a single issue. Not sure why others are having any issues. Gotta love the price too. My ASRock ROCKS ! 3770k ASRock Z77 Extreme4 OCZ Vertex 3 120gig Corsair H70 8 gigs G-Skill Ripjaws XFX 7970 850w Ultra power supply NZXT Phantom
Overall Review: I was a big ASUS mobo fan in the past, but wasn't to fond of the $200 - $350 price range. A friend told me to give ASRock a try and I am what you would call a happy camper.
Love this card
Pros: Great card for less than $100.00. Much nicer heatsink and fan than in some of the previous HIS cards I have had in the past.
Cons: None so far !
Overall Review: The cards fan was really quiet compared to my XFX 5870 and the misses Sapphire 5770. Even at 90% the HIS card was much quieter than both of the other cards at 65%. I would recommend this card to anyone who is looking for a cheap direct X 11 compatable card.
Pros: This chip is awesome. No issues what so ever. First benchmarks went up 5000 points in 3dmark 06. I recommend this chip to all peeps looking to upgrade and likes to overclock. I can't wait to see benchmarks once I get the processor speed up to 4 gigs
Overall Review: Great bargan chip !
