5 out of 5 eggs They Blow 07/20/2012

This review is from: 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.

Other Thoughts: Honeycomb walls really help with air flow in tight spaces.

Cons: Price?

Other Thoughts: Its an Intel Nic, you can't go wrong.

HIS Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock) DirectX 11 H597F2GDG 2GB 512 (256 x 2)-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Dual GPU Onboard CrossFire Video Card w/ Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.
