Summary I have two of these in a crossfire configuration. They rip through any game I put them up against at max settings. The only problem on these seems to be related to the fans. When I got my initial purchase I just installed and it my haste, didn't even look at the fans. The minute they started up I heard noise coming from the fan. I pulled both cards and looked. One of the cards had a fan that was misplaced by a few millimeters and it was hitting the metal. I am glad it didn't break the fan. Rather than sending it back at my cost and waiting it to be returned a week or two later, I opted to slightly bend out the metal it was hitting. Problem solved! Now I have had these cards for 6 months. One of the fans on the other card clinks and clanks at 90% and up fan speed. It's super annoying! I would give one card a 3 and the other one a 4, but there is no 3 1/2 stars! ;)
Summary Best card I have ever owned. Can take the newest games (Tomb Raider and BioShock) and run them on best settings. Amazing price for fantastic card, quiet dual fans and red exterior threatens my girlfriend as my next true love.
Summary Was in the market for a new card and came across this guy. With I coming with a few free games I was able to have tomb raider, and bioshock in max graphics and stay in 30 fps range, very happy with XFX. When the fans are pushed to max speed they can be very loud but under auto settings it never gets too loud partly because of the dual fan layout.
Pros Lifetime Transferable Warranty Awesome customer service XFX Support and NCIX Love the look of the silver casing
Cons Cannot overclock much Runs hotter than other card -Most importantly- The card I got was not a the revised VA.2 Model
Summary Got to say again I love XFX Warranty on there DD GPU's it just adds so much more value, especially for those who plan on selling their cards later on.
This card at stock will play most games at Ultra setting without lag, drop AA and Shadows down a notch and 60fps shouldn't be a problem. Yet I got to say the core overclock on this card is the week point I was unable to loop Unigine Heaven at all top settings at anything over 1100MHZ core without it crashing.
Another disappointing fact is that after I replaced my first faulty card I found out that there was a revised GHZ Edition card. Which uses the discontinued Black Editions design. Black Editions PCB, larger heat sink, 4 heatpipes, has VRM temp and version other sensors. So if you are planning to buy one of these in the near future try to see if they can get you a VA.2 model.
Summary Great card. First thing, it's very quiet. I always bench the heck out of new cards as soon as I get them. Mining Bitcoins or Folding. Uninstalled old Catalyst, installed new from XFX. Didn't even remove the disc from the sleeve. Immediately after install I OC'ed to 1150/1300 without touching the voltage. It's been running smooth all day r 99% usage. Temp easily gets to 82C r67% fan. It's in an Antec 900 with OC'ed 2500k to 4.4 with a CoolIt Eco, 3 green WD's and SSD. Runs great on OCZ 500w PSU and no case fans running. Guess it's time to start up some case fans and test some games. MIR is handy and XFX is usually quick to ship. I've only used AMD cards, and was thinking of switching to Nvidia, but after seeing some reports of power usage of 660 Ti's and checking some prices.. Well, this was a no brainer for the price.
Summary This chip runs very quiet, It is also very cool with temperatures of 30C idle and 70 Max, Runs most games in their highest settings Supports up to 6 monitors if you have the right setup, 2 monitors can be support with little cost and ease using the 2 dvi ports. The chip overclocks decently.
Pros life time warranty, dual fan design, heatsink for the memory and other components,runs cool, no more than 60C
Cons fans feel a little flimsy, shroud now blocks the tab used to release it from the pci slot,IT DOESNT COME WITH A STICKER, at one point the fans started hitting the wires and needed some crude readjustment, does not use direct heatpipe touch
Summary current games run smooth at ultra easily, I do not want to buy another card for 5 years or so the life time warranty is welcome, I bet this would run even cooler if it used direct heatpipe touch, The rebate barely covers the HST which was 27$, so I did not really save anything
