GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 DirectX 11 GV-R797D5-3GD-B 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After the break in process, the card could mine at a default rate of 500-550 mh/s. (makes about 1.5-2 $/day in laymans terms).

As the card is currently in my friend's possession, i don't have a chance to get any exact numbers regaurding either mining or OC potential.

The card plays games very well, but that's just plain obvious. This card won't let you down.

Cons: Card was a little unstable at first. I haven't bought a new (many used) card in a long time. After breaking it in, the card runs flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: don't know if this has the annoying thermal grease spacers like the 5970 since I haven't changed the grease yet. If it doesn't, i'm gonna put some antec diamond 7 on it which I highly recommend.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: Performs well + looks shiny

Cons: Not any better than my stock thermal grease. my XIGMATEK all-in-one cooler kept the procesor at 31 c on stock thermal grease during idle (41 at load). this did practicly the same thing.

Other Thoughts: Might just be that, in my case, i got some very good stock thermal grease. this stuff works, i just don't think its better than the cheaper stuff.

Pros: They work.

Cons: The metal pieces on the ends

Other Thoughts: The cables seemed a little too tight when i used them the first time. I then removed the metal pieces and they worked just fine.
