SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 XT w/Boost DirectX 11 100354XTL 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The card runs silently and cool. Even at 100% fan speed ot isnt that loud. Plays any game on high graphics. You get what you pay for!

Cons: Only a con if you have a small case, but the card is huge! I love it though!

Other Thoughts: Get this card seriously it is the best card I have ever ran and I can tell you over the years I have bought several high end cards. This one has yet to go over 60c when ran on high graphics sucking games. This thing ran Far Cry 3 on high even when my browser and other apps like photoshop were open.

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

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I cannot tell you how much I love this product. It works better then anything I have tried. Temps went down so I am happy.

Cons: Nothing, Zilch, Nada! In fact Minus nothing as my CPU heat has gone down by 7-12 Celsius on average.

Other Thoughts: A little dab will do ya! Like the size of a pea and then even it out so that it is mostly even and level. It doesn't have to be perfect just as long as it has no holes and you have a nice completely covered surface.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 11179-09 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I didn't have to waste too much time figuring out what was wrong with it. Teaches me the value of buying new!

Cons: Advertised as fixed product but clearly was not fixed. The driver stopped responding the second I opened a browser, played a game, or watched a movie. It would Fail over and over. RMA'd it ASAP. Waste of time.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping the replacement will be here soon and it better work otherwise I will never buy refurbished again and will advocate to anyone I know that buying refurbished is buying damaged goods.
