I'd consider it for under $400.

The PCS+ usually offers efficient, quiet cooling solutions. (I thoroughly enjoyed a PCS+ HD5870 a while back before selling it) However, that model, as with most of their reference designs, lacked software voltage control. The voltage IC is where PowerColor usually cuts cost the hardest. Aside from a reference HD5850, none of my PowerColor cards have supported (software) voltage control. The quality of their cards is spot on, but they often use cheaper components that lack the features of more robust solutions.

I don't want to pay $449 to put that ugly thing inside my case..
I would willing put a dis-jointed, top hatted, clown figurine that gave me nightmares in my case if it cooled my computer better.

But that's just me... I can put a piece of metal on, and never need to look inside again if I know things will be nice and cold

OT: This would be quite useful to anyone wanting to go Tri+ monitor, but not shell out the crap-tonne of money for a pair of 6970s. I'd still like to see temps and sound rating though....

True, they did cheap out on the HD 5000, for example, but their 6k cards have the voltage control among other things. Its also good to see them offer stuff like the 6950 PCS+ with the unlocked shaders.. though that model is EOL now afaik

Great. More AMD junk.

They should be spending their resources improving Bulldozer rather than making fail 4 life cards.

I was talking about AMD in general, not powercolor.

Why do they insist on using ugly colored PCBs?

I think the 6990 may have better VRMs or equal to it. The 6990 is not known for bad VRMs, actually quite the opposite.
