Pros: Run cool and is powerfull bf3 bf4 far cry 3 tomb raider dirt 3 etc all maxed out 40 fps +

Cons: Noisy if pushed past 70% fan speed (never happen) Boost is not effective at 100% load (Core clock jump each 3 sec 800-925..

I love this card as well as i hate it...


Noisy if pushed past 70% fan speed (never happen while gaming even FOLDING@HOME at 48% fan speed) Boost is not effective at 100% load (Core clock jump each 3 sec 800-925.

And one fan is vibrating at 65% in manual mode idk why....


Sometime the driver stuck at 500mhz on windows 8 pro i need to reboot to fix that.. Im on 8 not 8.1


So when it work it perfect im still trying to understand why i have these kind of problem and will report back it can be a defective gpu..


So it a great purchase biggrin.gif


The problem i have are probably because i use alot of monitoring program.

Pros: Great video card, I can max out any game that i've tried, destroys games like bf3, overclocking is easy and doable with stock coolng

Cons: None

Honestly this is a great video card. After using it for a month total, it has changed gaming completely for me. I upgraded from the radeon hd 5870 and i've seen a huge increase in performance. The cooling is great, great use for dual fans, the performance is unbelievable. I havent had a single problem with this video card. I would recommend this to anyone, its a cheap price and at the same time it gives great performance.
