The bottom line for me, is 15 years building computers, I have never had any card over heat. The fans need to flat out die for that to happen. Find one that fits, like you did, then buy the one that's the best price.

I've been building my own PCs for over 20 years.. I've had a Sapphire die out right and an EVGA. Both companies replaced the cards immediately. A friend's XFX 290x just died as well, same, replaced instantly.

Lawson, I think you'll be happy with your purchase.

I have only had to RMA one video card and it was my EVGA GTX 8800. It was from the memory failing, not any heat issue.

The Powercolor has probably the best cooling of any of the cards out right now. It's not just as good, it's better.

I knew you couldn't go to sleep that easily. BTW, what made you decide to jump to team red?

Warning, powercolor pcs+ listed specs are wrong. It's ~294mm long and 52mm thick. That's why it cools so well lol it's a humongous cooler with heatsink fin area dwarfing most other cards. It's well done tho with big heatsinks on both vrms and pads on all memory chips.

dream-seller has just come back to say they can't undervalue with FedEx - but can send with EMS for a $50 surcharge.

I've left it with Fedex (kinda trust them), and if I'm paying $50 surcharge I may as well just pay the customs charges.
