First I should mention I have chosen not to add any pros/cons or to rate this card based on my specific use. I think this is a great card especially for the price. So I've given it 4 stars, because I would buy it again. And any/all pro's/cons listed are unrelated to crypto mining.
I am currently using this card for Litecoin and cryptocurrency mining, OC'ed to 1100MHz core 1350MHz memory and getting great hash speeds of 650kh/s. I am not using this card for gaming, however the Windforce design keeps the card cool (72 deg max on an open air case). Not too noisy but of course you can hear them three fans going at it.
The only disadvantage is voltage is locked to 1.250 (that's quite high, really), so there isn't much leeway in overclocking. There are guides on how to downgrade the firmware (at your own risk) to bring down the voltage to stock 1.090v.
Pretty fast card, overclocks ok because it is voltage locked you are unable to tweak it, I wish it could come unlocked, indeed this card has potential but fell short due to its limitations, anyway it was a good buy for the price
I bought this for a friends build, and I'm dissapointed with how loud it is under load. The card will be at 57°C and the fans will be around 2500rpm. The performance is great, it's just loud for a non-reference card.
The card is easy to install with latest drivers proving more then a match for similar cards in the price range. The card has been running everything I play at ultra settings without ocing. Crysis 3 ran smoothly except when I turned on anti-aliasing to 16xx. I missed the new never settle bundle, but free crysis 3 and bioshock is worth it.
This card outperform my 6870 CFX setup. Even with a Phenom 955 I get incredible FPS on max settings on all games I've tested. Skyrim, Batman AC, Sleeping Dogs and others. I got the new revision 2 which come with a new bios and default OC clock speed of 1000 mhgz!! The card idled around 35C and under heavy load with Furmark it was only 64C and the fan was spinning at 75%. Great price, outstanding performance, great cooling and 2 free games :). Highly recommended!!
Ordered 2 cards both seem to be different versions 1 has and extra set of power pins and an extra heatsink where as the other does not. The one without also ran about 80+ degrees and the one with steady about 68 at full load. The one without the heatsink popped a transistor on the backside of where there would be a heatsink on the other one (related or coincidence I dont know) both gigabyte and ncix tell me that because there is a burn mark that it is physical damage and not covered under warranty (im curious how a product could be broken but not damaged) they both said they will try to help me but it seems to be a long process and want everyone to know how aweful of an experience this has been.
i loved the card choice at first after reading all the reviews, but once I got the card and found out it conme with HD3D, I was very dissappointed. I was going to return the card to get another with this feature. then I find out NCIX wants a 15% restocking fee, that's $49 I have to pay to return it and spend money on another with them. Unacceptable. Although I rate the card a 4, I rate the store a 2. My rating is for the product only.
