I'm pissed

Today I was eager to get my replacement video card from my XFX 7950 I had to RMA. A month later I finally get my replacement card. Wait a second, its a different revision than the one I previously had, and to top that off, its voltage locked (my other was not). It happens to also be a used card, its full of dust (***?)

So here I am with this replacement video card, I cannot install my water block on it, and It cannot overclock. Putting it up for sale on ebay as we speak. Guess I will have to rock the Hd 5450 a bit longer, until i can get a card which will suit my needs. ARGH I just hope I can sell it and buy a new 7950/7970 with out dipping into my non existent pockets

Sorry to rant, but i had to.

Understandable rant. Unfortunately the majority of manufactures will send you a refurbished product, something to keep in mind for all of us in the future. This happened to someone with an ASUS also.

Hmm this ax 1200 is less then a year old.

The other 2 cards still work fine I'm putting another 7950 from another system in top slot to see if it is the card or the pci.e slot.


Are you sure its dead? I've clocked my cards to the gills and put forth my best efforts and they still won't die, underwater that is. Tahiti is very durable when watercooled (with ek block for me). Good luck with the card swap game.

Sorry to rant, but i had to.

yup, I here will never buy xfx again. happens that my 7950 is voltage locked too and 1050core 1350 mem is the max OC i can get out of it hahahahaha.......I'm as well putting this POS on ebay for sale and will be getting a 7970 just NOT XFX ever ever again.

With all this bad rep xfx cards have I probably will price it at 230$ just to get it sold quickly.....for a 2month old card should sell fairly quick

This is why i will never buy a card from them. XFX hardly ever churns out positive attention.

yah see post above..

I was folding with mine overclocked 24 hrs a day 7 days a week for 2 months.

when i went into safe mode gpu 2 and 3 were fine. but gpu 1 had this.



Mine were under water =p



I wonder what about it died because it will still boot with out installing a driver for it..
