Nicce card, Super fast.
I really like this card. It's super fast. Cool to have 2 FANs on top! It needs 2 PCI-E connectors. So you have to have them from your power supply. Playing games at full resolution without a glitch. It is also so fast that I am almost always the first player to arrive in multiplayer games like BlackOps2...

-Ran everything I could think of easily
-Looks amazing
-Got pretty hot
-Made my computer freeze randomly
-Got some artifacting
-non-reference board
-no dual-bios switch
-locked voltage
I had this card only for 2 days and I was already having issues with it. In the first evening, it locked up my pc twice. Also had some artifacting a few times while benching. After seeing all the negative comments I decided it was better to return and get something else. Went it Sapphire 7970 Dual-X OC and haven't looked back.
3 stars because i most likely got a lemon and if it weren't for that I would have kept it.

-Worked great until it blew up just shy of having it for one month
Working well thus far. Keeps cool, good air circulation
Heatsink on the card is very rigid and supports the card well.
Card died within a month. Computer turned locked up, rebooted then turned off again to a nice bellow of headache enducing toxic smelling black smoke.
no dual bios switch
loud with 100% fan (louder than expected)
*Edited due to card exploding*
The card performed amazingly well, lacked in a few areas such as locked voltage and no dual bios.

However last night, the card decided it had enough of me and committed suicide. Ironically the card died while playing Arma 3 a non gpu intense game, yet survived a several hour furmark run. To make matters even more shocking, I had the card clocked back at the default 1050/1500 while testing performance and temps in game.
I will be returning this card to NCIX tomorrow hopefully without issue.

For the past few weeks I have been putting the card through it's paces.
I've been running the card near 24/7 under medium to heavy stress load.
I'm able to reach stable 1165/1725 respectively without increasing voltage running 4 hour furmark.
The card came pre clocked at 1050/1500 with a voltage of 1.213. Afterburner was unable to increase voltage. Using sapphire trixx or asus gpu tool the voltage can be increased up to a max limit of 1.281 (Left at default after initial test). However regardless of what voltage I set, the memory seems to become unstable after 1775mhz, Was hoping to hit 1825.

Overall the card has been performing great, I chose the GHZ edition to ensure at least a decent OC via binning process.

Fast while it worked
Computer shut down and it started smoking.
As a couple of other owners have commented. I had this card for a couple of months and then my computer just shut down and I found smoke coming out of the card. I am now trying to get it RMA'd with XFX. So far not much luck. :(

Performs well
Might try to light on fire
Well, I was pretty pleased with the performance of the card, until today. Having my computer unexpectedly shut down and then having the video card start glowing and spewing smoke kind of soured my opinion of it.

Nice looking cooler.
Quiet fans.
Lots of coil whine.
Died the first day that i got it.
After I installed the card and ran the new Hitman game my computer turned off, restarted and turned off again. I opened the side panel of my case only to see smoke billowing from the gpu. Died on the first day that I had it.

Experience: 15 Days
Zero Nil Not A one Had to put 3 stars to post this when 1 star would not post
Coil Whine Will Drive You Nuts
This coil whine is really bad and its not with just one card I returned 3 that had it, if you do
a search for coil whine you'll hear it
now for cooling it stayed at around 68 which in fact sucks compared to the Gigabyte 7970 ghz same games 55 to 57
no coil whine noise at all one other thing in 3dmark the XFX no over clocking on card or cpu it got 7800 but the Gigabyte got 9250 stock
So now you know which one is the better product

Experience: 1 Days
Cool, Quiet, Sexy
Slight coil whine
I bought this yesterday at NCXI Mississauga store. The guy who handled the sales was awesome. The card is great, I like how it performs and I am looking forward to adding another one in a month or so for CF. I like how it looks in my Fractal Design Define R4 White with window. Sexiness to the max.

powerful, pretty quiet, runs cool.
none so far
This card never got above 72 degrees C on all the usual tests. I had the core clock up to 1250 and the memory at 1625 with no problems at all. The score on 3D Mark 11 was 10995. The card plays all my games on max but what I like the most is the compute power for my digital photo editing, and there are more apps coming out that use graphic card and processor together like Handbrake, this card is a very good productivity buy as well. The game bundle from AMD and the XFX Dirt Showdown cupon made this an easy choice

Experience: 1 Weeks
Super fast and quieter than previous cards!
Great card, really impressed what this card is doing right now. Upgraded from two 6970 in crossfire and this card matches if not improves performance in every game that I play. Also this card runs quieter and cooler probably will pick up another when I can.
