Summary: It is a very good performer for 1440p. Pretty much can max out everything at 1440p. Its temperature under full load is very reasonable and it is not too noisy. However it cannot be overclocked. Stock speed is 1000MHz and increase it is to 1050MHz and video driver crash in desktop mode.
Pros: low temperature and not noisy at all. Very good preform at 1440p
Summary: Got this to replace a reference design 6950. So far it has been super fast and powerful but it does draw more power. At 100% GPU load using Furmark it is somewhat loud but otherwise it is a great card. The added games from AMD make this a no-brainer purchase.
