Pros
MSI 3 year warranty
Good cooler
Cons
Price
fans can get loud
Summary
Top notch card, the cooler is way better than reference.

Experience: 7 Months
Pros
-Factory Overclocked to 960 MHz NOT 880 MHz
-Runs all games I played at max settings at 1680 x 1050
Cons
-None
Summary
The card is factory overclocked to 960 MHz. In addition, it had an 8-pin and 6-pin power instead of two 6-pins. I believe this is only on newer revisions. If you don't have an 8-pin power cable, an adapter is included. Card also has a dual BIOS switch. If you plan on overclocking it further, be sure to increase the power limit, otherwise AMD Powertune will decrease the clock speed further than the stock clock speed when the power limit is exceeded.

Pros
Fast, stable, 384 bit memory bus, 3GB of vram.
Cons
None to speak of.
Summary
This is a fantastic video card. Shocking enough, I actually ended up getting one with an HD 7970 PCB, and the 8 pin + 6 pin connectors. This video card just rips through games at 1920 x 1080P resolution. The 384 bit bus, and 3 gigs vram definitely helps to obtain great frame rates when using high amounts of AA. I just cant recommend this video card enough. It is definitely worth a 5 star rating. I had an MSI GTX 660 Ti, but I sold it to a customer, and got the MSI HD 7950 instead. I am glad I made the switch.

Pros
Alright cooling
Decent noise levels but could be better
Cons
Not the original revision that I believe is probably better
Summary
It seems the current model shipping is the dual 6 pin connector Boost Edition cards. It's no longer the 8pin+6pin 7970 PCB card. Card is actually noticeably louder than my GB Windforce card though when maintaining the same temperature (regardless of it being top or bottom).

Pros
-Perform good
-Overclocking
-Silent
-AMD Driver (I do like them)
Cons
-Could have better memory overclocking :)
Summary
This card rocks. When I got it, it wasn't the PCB of a HD7970, but it was a boosted edition, so 960mhz onthe GPU.

I've been able to overclock the GPU to 1200mhz, without increasing the voltage, as the card came with 1.2/1.25v.

For the memory, I can run 3dmark 2011 at 1400mhz (instead of 1250) but I get a wierd screen on BOINC calculation, so I guess 1350mhz would be the max. Still quite good. I put the fan at 45% and it is silent. never goes over 82C overclock on Furmark.

it can run Crysis 3 at max detail, 2x AA. I recommend this card!

Pros
Excellent performance per dollar*
Excellent performance per watt(power consumption)
Solid overclocking performance
One of the best high-end single card performance
Temperature and fan noise are ok
Cons
Con's to AMD in general, be sure to install latest drivers (see summary)
Summary
Be sure to install the latest drivers from AMD (12.11 beta as of January 2013) as older drivers seem to be causing rendering artifacts and glitches, that and the bundled overclocking software, MSI Afterburner, seemed redundant as of the current video drivers which already includes AMD Overdrive.

*Bought this during Black Friday sale for $300 and it came with 3 free games courtesy of AMD's Never Settle promo, which by the way were: Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution, and Far Cry 3.

Pros
Fantastic performance, great looks, easy overclock,near silent when the fans are down.
Cons
fans get incredibly loud even when spun up tio only 60%, luckily though, even overclocked in line with online reviews, the fan never spins that high.
Summary
Far Cry 3 at 2560x1440 with ultra settings (4xMSAA) plays smooth and looks unimaginably good. Easy overclock in line with reviews. Silent to quiet, use depending.

Pros
Very powerful, every game on ultra - no visible freezes, always on 30+ fps.
Cons
A bit noisy when heavily tasked.
Summary
All games 1920x1080 ultra settings play without any problems. Skyrim hd edition 50+ fps, Mechwarrior online 35+ fps, WOT 100+.
Very satisfying video card! The only downsize is that when under heavy stress, the noise levels increase significantly, but that is to be expected.

Pros
-Low noise in my Full tower thats already a Jet plane.
-Good performance
- OC it, dare ya.
- No driver issues with me, with all the AMD Products Ive had.
Cons
- It's not an 7990....
Summary
Swapped a single 6950 for this, certainly an upgrade, once BF3 Dies out Ill be getting a second one for Crossfire.

Pros
- Great performance > Running BF3 at 55-60fps with 2x MSAA on 27" 2560x1440
- Great cooling
- Voltage unlocked
- Alot of OC headroom
- Ran stable at 1043mV 1050/1575 using +20% power limit, haven't tried much higher.
- Custom PCB with 6+8 power connectors (apparently better overclockers than previous model or reference boards)
Cons
- Irritating COIL WHINE.... when gaming even at low fps or with vysnc/frame limiter. Changing voltage and clocks didn't change anything.
- Cooler could be considered loud above 60% for some people, I personally didn't mind at all.
- Only 1 dual link DVI, this means you need to buy active mini display port to dvi/hdmi for a third monitor setup.
Summary
UPDATED REVIEW:

Received my exchange/RMA replacement and no more annoying coil whine now!! I would have to say that the "new" card doesn't overclock as much as the first one but still offers pretty good results. Only issue is that its running about 5-10 degrees higher than the original one. But after replacing thermal paste, which is easily done, its now running below 70-75 even at 100% useage with fans at 70% or below. Overall a pretty good bang for your buck if your lucky enough to get one without coil whine. GTX 660 and 670 still not worth the 100$ more imo. If you are running a 2560x1440 resolution, this does the job ok until next gen video cards are out.


INITIAL REVIEW:

Was previously using 6950s in CF, and was tired of the CF issues and micro stutter (having to play games on a single card to avoid those and losing half the peformance)..
Spent many many many hours researching for the best performance for 2560x1440 for mainly BF3 and WoW without wanting to waste too much cash on these "old" series AMD 7xxxx and Nvidia 6xx waiting for next series. Finally decided to pull the trigger on the best bang for your buck, the 7950 and going with a good company, MSI. Still think its a great choice right now, until good GTX 670s drop  prices but unfortunately mine had the infamous coil whine to disruptive levels. Absolutely no way I will endure this. Already have RMA approved, will send it back on Monday, hopefully replacement wont have the same issue.
If not from this coil whining I would highly recommend the product. I will update  (not sure possible) my review once I get the replacement card but for now, a big 2/5 stars.
