Great performance plays all games maxed out. Love the black/red color, fan noise is very mild. Got two of these at the sale price of $329.99
Not a lot I can say about cons, got two of these both at the sale price of $329.99
Sleek looking, great performance and excellent price what's not to love about this card.

Fast, Quiet, Great Price
Great card, great price, extremely fast, quiet and not too power hungry. Great for running dual card setup crossfire.

FPS, MSI: After burner and combustor, Bios switch, volt unlocked, free top tier games!
fan speed/noise prior to messing with afterburner.
This card screams in all games. Farcry3 ultra HDAO 2xMSAA avg 50fps, never goes below 38. All other games on higest settings with no issue, max 60 (with vsync on of course).

After installation, the default fan profiles are a little loud, but after burner fixed that. For those who wish to overclock, the bios switch and volt unlocked will work well.

The cooler that the card ships with is the same on the MSI OC 7970, with the black textured metal on the bottom. Very nice overall. Running games, the gpu load does get to 100 but the fan speed I have runs only up to about 45, still really quiet. At this fan speed, the card is running about 60degress, far under the 80 which is getting hot.

What does that mean, during stress test with kombuster, the card is loud...but during games it is not. Although after burner workds really well, you should not have to install it to get the noise under control as MSI should have fixed that in the bios itself.

Top of the line video card
Very loud noisy fan
The gaming experience is beyond all expectations. The only down side is the fan noise but at $330 less $30 rebate, it's a great value. Having said that, it's not such a great value when you consider I ordered a Koolance VID-AR797 Water Block to get rif of the unbearable noise. The water block is $150 so total cost $450. Humm...

Very nice solid card. Amazing performance.
Great card, able to run all games nearly maxed out. The never Settle bundle is a good touch to test this card out especially with farcry 3. For those who had vram limitations this card can blaze through with no problem.

Runs everything I throw at it at max, absolutely no lag.
Get's a little warm, but on water it shines.
Got it on black Friday for 299$ it was a steal.

I just bought it, and everything works as intended. Run all games at max settings no problem whatsoever.
Card is HUGE, make sure it fits in your case.
this is a reference card with a blower not a modded card with 1 or 2 fans to cool it off.

so reference cards are more noisy i'd say, blower running at 100% using AMD softare is CRAZY it's like a jet engine. Actually none of the game i play makes the blower go over 30% fan speed.

Powerful card, dual mini display port + DVI outputs, quiet running when gaming
None that I have found so far
Built a new gaming rig and have been using this card for about month now. BF3 with all graphic options on ultra settings + AMD EyeFinity with no lag. Plays every game I and my son have thrown at it. Would highly recommend this card, just make sure you get it on sale.

This is a great product, it has an extreme performance, you won't regret.
I didn't really appreciate to see my pins connectors already removed. And after removing the original cooler, I could see there were only the half of the thermal paste on the gpu. MSI should put more into its quality control.
I putted a water cooling block on it and the performance are unimaginable.

good card runs fast. drivers need to be undated once you install the disc.
not a con but this card will not fit in mid tower. expensive
overall amazing card eats everything i throw at it
