Pros: -great for cryptomining (litecoin, dogecoin, vertcoin, ect.) i get 600kh/s easily.
-fan are fairly silent
-easy to overclock to 1100mhz (and very stable at this speed)
-able to change voltages in cgminer to reduce heat and energy used
-the card looks really good, feels solid
-never had this card crash my display drivers like my other 7950 did
-you can play basicly any game on ultra @ 60fps on a 1080p screen
Cons: -heatsink is a little small
-default voltage will overheat your card
Other Thoughts: -for some reason this card comes with the default vddc at 1.250, this is WAY TO HIGH! This is why everyone has had overheating problems with this card. If you max out the gpu usage and the vddc is at 1.250 the card will get to 90+ degrees C even with the fans at 100%. There is no reason to leave your voltage this high.
-If you change the vddc to 1.125 then max out gpu usage, it only gets to 80 C. You can overclock stably to 1100mhz at this voltage. mining at ~620kh/s
-further reducing the vddc to 1.069 will only allow your core clock speed to go up to 825mhz. this reduces heat down into the low 70's high 60's but at the cost of only mining at ~500kh/s
