5/ 5

Pros: Although the 390X & 480's are out, this card can hang with them. Plays Overwatch and several others on ULTRA HIGH settings, ran it on a 4K TV RES 3160x2160 getting 70 plus frames with VSYNC off.

Cons: NONE!

Amazing Card! 11/30/2015 8:54:05 AM

Pros: Haven't had a single issue with this card. Until recently, almost any game I threw at it ran fine, 60FPS.
Easy to install, fit's perfectly in my case. Great card.

Cons: None.

Well... just read it. 8/21/2015 12:21:57 AM

Pros: positive things about this card is that it can handle just about anything you throw at it. can run crisis at ultra stock.

over all a good card.

however, my cons and other thoughts is why i am writing this.

Cons: .the drivers for this card are really really bad. it made my pc crash alot, and just has gotten worce. this started happening about 6 months or so into owning it and has gotten more and more worse. It giving my pc major memory issues and doest seem to want to work with my fx amd processor at all now.

Overall Review: if your looking for a new card, i would say stay away from this one. i had to break out my old gpu and use that until i can buy a new gpu. i was getting blue screens everyday due to driver shutdowns, memory issues, and register problems with the gpu and cpu with the OS. The new windows 10 update was making the gpu driver have a memory leak of over 9 gigs in ram just to run the OS. had to reinstall my OS... its just a mess.

NOW i am going to have to buy another 300 to 400 dollar gpu because i simply can not use this anymore. I gave it 3 stars because mine just may be a black sheep. however from the looks of the reviews it might now be. if you get one that last's longer than a year, it would be a good card. I think something hardware wise is wrong with mine. i honestly don't know i just know the gpu is the source of the problem.

Working as Intended 2/3/2015 6:28:35 PM

Pros: - One of the best GPU coolers in my opinion. 60-65c during full load, I've never seen this go above 70c.
- Very nice aesthetics.
- I like the blue/black color theme.

Cons: - Card is long but I had no problem fitting inside my Corsair Carbide 500r case.

Overall Review: Well I hate starting this review like this but If I would of wrote this review maybe couple months back it would of been very differently.

To begin I am very bummed and mad at this time, I ordered this GPU on 04/07/14 and paid roughly $390. Almost a year has gone by and with that amount of money I could purchased a R9 290x or the new Nvidia GTX 970 which range from $330-$360 as I am writing this review. I had my eyes set on this card(at the time) however due to the gold miners I wasn't able to purchase any R9 280x since they were going for like $450+. I am very bummed knowing I could bought a VERY high end graphics card right now... oh well technology sure advances rapidly.

Now that my rant is out of the way i'll quickly give my opinion on this card. Well it's almost a year since I've had this card and honestly I haven't had any problems what so ever, not even screen issues. The cooler on this thing is amazing, I monitored the temps on this card for the first few months and to this day I've never seen it exceed over 70c, it averages between 60c-65c.

Honestly this GPU might be a little too much for my needs, I am still kinda new the PC gaming scene, around four years. I only play like 1-2 games to be honest that is SWTOR and SC2. I bought two other games just to "test" the graphics on this thing and that was Tomb Raider which had no issues maxing out. However Watch Dogs on the other hand doesn't quite max it out, I'm not saying its horrible or anything but you can still play this game at very high settings but once you start to max out some settings it starts to get rough.

To conclude I am giving this card 5/5 eggs, everything about this card has been working flawlessly. My rant is just a personal thing knowing I could of bought something better... and doesn't affect the product by any means.

Card Artifacts 2/1/2015 6:12:17 AM

Pros: I bought this card because I had an old Vapor-X and I loved it! This guy supports 4k,so I took the plunge.

Cons: Almost from the get go it started artifacting. Usually it doesn't do this in games, but in the browser when there is webgl or heavy animations going on.

I figured it could be fixed with an update, but that hasn't been the case. Look elsewhere!

Pros: Fast, high quality, great price, great cooler.

Cons: A wee bit noisy once it gets humming along, but nothing headphones can't fix.

Overall Review: If you are going to try and use this for a watercooling loop, don't. There are no full card water blocks for these cards. I wish EK or XSPC or even Sapphire would make one. Granted the vapor-x tech and the tri-x fan work absolutely amazing for cooling this beast off, but i wanted my case to glow blue.

Seemed Good...... 12/22/2014 11:16:49 PM

Pros: Right away the card looks pretty dam cool. Vapor-x glows blue and i have a black and blue themed build so i was really happy with this card. Fit great in my case and worked like a charm right out of the box after loading drivers. Played all the games i wanted it to play and had the settings turned up to ultra just to see how it handles. Then it started to happen.....

Cons: Sadly after a good 7 days of playing games for about 2 hours a day, it started to show artifacts on the screen. This being my first real time ever buying new stuff and not piecing together builds from other peoples stuff, did not know about RMA rules. On day six i sent in my upc to receive some money back and then the next day the card started failing.

Overall Review: I will buy another one and have a go with that one but its a shame that there is no way to have this card replaced and im out a few hundred all because of a $20 tease. The lesson learned is play games for at least a good whole day to test the card out hard. And run some benchmark stuff too.

Locked BIOS! 11/18/2014 9:25:37 AM

Pros: It runs cool

Cons: WARNING: This card has a locked BIOS. Since I run Linux, I cannot change the voltage in any way. I got a half broken card, in my opinion.

Overall Review: Stop with this. I NEED to flash a new BIOS to change voltages.
