This thing runs HOT!

Xardian, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Not sure if it's something to do with the card I have but my 7970 runs very hot. Peeking 82c before shutting it self down at it's factory fan curve spinning at 50 ish percent. I had to set a custom fan curve in Corsair link to make sure the card stays cooled. Once I did I haven't had any problems out of it though it's louder then I'd like.

Sick, Sick, Sick.

The Stig, Amazon

  • Summary: This card is amazing. It destroys everything I throw at it, and I plan to purchase a second as soon as its below $400. The cooler works wonders, in average gaming my load temps are below 70C, and in some more intense games like BF3, Crysis, and Metro 2033, my temps hit about 75C. Never gone past 80C even playing BF3 all night. On top of all this its just beautiful.

asus hd 7970 directcu

  • Summary: I waited soo long for gtx 680 so i decided to purchase this card on feb 18 on amazon and it was back ordered, it took almost a month for my card to arrive. It was worth the wait upgraded from my gtx 550ti to this and wow was I amazed playing every game on high settings. The only thing i dont like about radeon is that their current drivers suck some times it causes some glitchyness when i was playing bf3.

Amazing card with only one fault.

Crysto, Amazon
1 April 2012
  • Summary: Pros: - Incredibly quiet - Great Temperatures - Looks great - Eyefinity! (Sorry Nvidia, but pick up your game.) - ... and it's tearing free! (due to the display outputs). The MSI Lightning being the only other 7970 capable of the same, however MSI's doesn't have Dual Link DVI. - Overclocks very well - to a point.(mentioned below) Cons: - Very few included additions, multiple adapters will need to be bought for many users.

Good things come to those who wait

Nick, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this card on February 16th and it shipped on March 19th. This is the longest I waited for a product, but it was worth it. Got it for the $579,- price, I'd rather wait than pay more for it. I upgraded from a ASUS HD 5870 v2 to the ASUS HD 7970 DC II and I really notice the difference. The main reason I got this card was Eyefinity over 3 monitors with full display ports, lower noise and lower temperature.

Great card for the price.

F. Mcdonald "JM", Amazon
22 March 2012
  • Summary: All in all this bad boy can handle whatever you throw at it, haven't ran into any lag in any game with ultra settings. Fan noise is beautiful, no noise coming from this gpu really, stays at 30c idle and max I have seen at load was 50c. 6 display ports for Eyefinity. Setup is easy, the only thing I fret about since switching to AMD from Nvidia is cpanel options for each display, AMD to me doesn't have that many selective options that can make regular display life easier,...

  • Summary: I haven't had any of the problems with this card that other people have so maybe i'm lucky or they're unlucky. This card has been great for me runs cool and quiet. It is large though so make sure you have enough room in your case for it.

Great card!

Ryan, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: ***Issues (04/2/2012)*** I just wanted to provide a disclaimer that others have cards that are doing great, but I've had 3 of these and 3 of 3 have been bad cards. I ordered 2 cards right when they came out and got some from the first batch from Newegg. Then I ordered here after those cards had arrived DOA. The one I got from Amazon just went bad after 2 weeks of use.

FINALLY ARRIVED!

Brian, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this item February 7 and it didn't ship until March 7, and arrived the next day. It went in the computer great except that the plastic part of the side fan in my HAF X hit it. So, I had to remove it. Now, I have a Noctua NH-D14, GSkill Ripjaw Z's, and a i7 3820 on a Rampage IV Formula and it all fits! This card touches the fan clips on the Noctua but just barely -no big deal. It was a big pain trying to seat this card onto the board because of the back plate.
