Pros: Great performance, quiet, and very cool running card.
Cons: When fans are running 60%+, a vibration noise can be heard. Upon applying pressure to the plastic housing with my finger, particularly at the fan closest to the video ports, the rattling would stop. Researching, I came across a reviewer on Newegg that cited an excellent fix to alleviate the problem (found on the feedback page of the Gigabyte Radeon 7850 2GB. I will paste what he wrote below since it entirely fixes the issue with minimal hassle and no RMA necessary: "Update: I complained about the vibration noise but fixed it. Using one reviewers technique combined with my own. The vibration comes from a flimsy piece of plastic under the fan closest to the video ports. If you loosen the three screws that hold that fan in, lift up the fan and push on the plastic, you will feel how loose and flimsy it is and that it doesn't quite touch the aluminum tightly enough. If you shim a piece of electrical tape that's been doubled a few times under this piece of plastic, the vibration ceases!" Thank you Mr. N/A!
Overall Review: Wanted to post a review on this page to help others who might also have this problem. Otherwise, it's a wonderful card.
