Worked well for a while 5/14/2017 12:38:50 PM

Pros: Good quality image, stable initially when I first got it, easy enough to install

Cons: After roughly a year of operation, it started crashing at random... and then more and more frequently. I found a correlation between crashes and graphics intensity- I cannot play something like overwatch without it just dying on me out of nowhere after 5-10 minutes

Cons: DOA two times in a row (original ordered card and rma card)

Overall Review: I really wanted to give these guys a shot (PowerColor) The card had decent reviews. And they are a sponsor at a LAN i attend in Portland Oregon. (PDXLAN)

Newegg was very quick and professional about replacing the DOA card, But the replacement was DOA as well. Not Newegg's fault. They were super helpful in resolving the situation in a prompt and professional matter via online chat feature the second time around. the card is otw back to california now,

Two(2) Dead cards in a row. fans powered on but the LCD screen power light stayed orange(no signal) popped back in my original card and no problems (competitors card) same issue with both AMD R9 Cards.
I gave it 3 stars for Newegg's prompt service
0 stars for the video card.

Always crashing. 6/7/2015 9:03:11 AM

Pros: When it did work, it was amazing.

Cons: When it didn't work, which was 9 times out of 10, Windows 7 and 8.1 would crash on startup, no matter which driver I used. Couldn't open pictures, couldn't browse too much, couldn't start games or play much, couldn't do anything beyond search for a fix..
Flashed my mobo BIOS, but no dice. Tried 12 different drivers (including betas) on both OS, but it would either crash on startup or result in an unstable environment that would crash as soon as I opened a game or app or tried viewing a picture.
Even changing the BIOS dipswitch on the GPU did nothing. I tried various fixes suggested around to no avail. None of the Windows updates helped, either.
Asked for an RMA from Newegg since after a week of troubleshooting, I'm unable to find a fix.
Swapped RAM and such, but still nothing.
I did find a good solution to the coil whine issues, though: turn up the volume. :]

Pros: -awesome bit rate, not sure if I phrased that right
-3 gigs of gddr5 ram
-crossfire
-great price
-doesn't get too bottle necked in a pci express 2.0 slot

Cons: only makes me virtual sandwiches

Overall Review: It doesn't come with any kind of converter and 2 of its slots are mini display ports nor does it come with a crossfire bridge. Some people said that it can support up to 4 monitors, I haven't tried to set up 4 but i tried to set up 3 and it wouldn't put the image on 3 screens. This was a disappointment but it doesn't bother me enough to lover it 4 eggs.

Can tackle most of the games I throw at it 5/26/2015 12:31:04 PM

Pros: This beast can handle Witcher 3 and Assassin's Creed Unity. I haven't played any other games on it though so I can comment.

Cons: There is a bit of coil whine though and I can hear it distinctly. Although the coil whine goes away after a couple of seconds of opening Witcher 3. So as soon as I start actually playing there is absolutely no more coil whine.

Overall Review: This GPU was a good investment in my opinion. I can actually play the games I want on high/ultra settings and it does not have an FPS lag. So I'm happy with that.

Games look amazing. Coil whine annoys when not gaming unless running Linux 4/9/2015 7:58:56 AM

Pros: No coil whine at Linux desktop. Coil whine in games isn't bad if you have headphones or turn up the volume.

Cons: Coil whine at Windows desktop. Tried Win 7 x32 and x64 with 3 catalyst driver versions and tried full catalyst install and driver only. Win 8.1 x64 with different driver versions. All desktops have coil whine and annoyed me to death.

Note using the open source driver Ubuntu 14.04 and Fedora 20,21 did NOT have any coil whine issues.

Overall Review: I use Linux as a primary desktop for surfing the internet and media. No coil whine under these operating systems. Gaming only pc and Linux desktop users if the price on this card is competitive go for it!
