WINDFORCETM 2X: Anti-turbulence Cooling
The special inclined dual fan design effectively minimizes the flow of turbulence between two fans and enhances heat dissipation of hot area right underneath each fan. By unique design, WINDFORCETM 2X even enlarges air channel on the graphics card vents and creates a more effective air flow system in chassis. This special design helps heat dissipate quickly from GPU. In addition, WINDFORCETM 2X is equipped with 2 copper heat-pipes which strengthen the speed of heat dissipation.

"Throughout our suite of benchmarks the card either toppled the GTX570 or came very close to doing so which is a great result for the diminutive card. It does this while being the coolest card on test along with being one of the most power efficient and for the most part, it was also the quietest."
"Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 OC WindForce 2x (GV-R785OC-2GD) graphics card surprised us with just how quiet it is, whether it’s idle or working hard. Although it’s a graphics card with a 115MHz GPU overclock, WindForce 2x has no trouble keeping it cool and temperature didn’t go over 56°C."

I haven't had any problems with this card, installed the drivers and it was simply plug and play. I managed to PM this card for $185 and it's an awesome price for the features it had. Runs pretty much any game buttery smooth. I love the fans on it and is very quiet.
Recommended for anyone looking for a budget video card.
For a $200 card, the Gigabyte 7850 OC is very good. While it seems most people can take this card to around 1050 core/1350 mem with no voltage changes, it becomes unstable at clocks beyond that. Having said that, it is an excellent performer even at its stock OC, let alone at 1050/1350. Simply put, this is one of the best AMD cards you can get for great performance at an affordable price. Although it may not be the best overclocker, a base clock of 975MHz/1200MHz and complete stability up to 1050MHz/1350MHz has proved impressive enough in-game.
Got this to replace an aging HD 4870 that had trouble maxing out newer games (*cough* Skyrim *cough*). No such problem anymore, everything runs on absolutely maximum in Skyrim, Far Cry 3 and everything else I've tried so far (except AA which I leave at 4X cause it looks better).
Good card, the twin fan are relatively low noise. Did not monitor the temp while gaming but the exhaut did not seem that hot. Play wall all my recent games, utilise only 1 PCIE 6 pin power.
Upgraded from an 8800GTS on an old C2D E6750 (w/ 4gb DDR2), and I can run BF3 on ultra with buttery smooth graphics. Splendid. Far Cry 3 also runs very smoothly with everything maxed out. I'm very impressed at its ability to add longevity to my 5 year old system. Let's see if that is still the case in another 5!

Upgraded from a Radeon 5850 for a friend and he's all teeth now! High and Ultra Settings in FarCry, Borderlands. Twin cooling works and no rattles. Driver install was painless and the included 2 Free Games work without a hitch! For what it is this card was definately worth the price!
