Summary: If the fan fails again I'm just getting an aftermarket cooler, never had an issue with Gigabyte as a whole... but the second fan is making an odd noise at load. Only experienced two bsods after moving to this card from Nvidia garbage.
Pros: Good performance for price. Good cooling ability and stable temperature under load. Looks nice? Drivers can recover unlike Nvidia ones, if you do something stupid there's a chance you'll just have to close what you're doing and start over... unlike Nvidia where a crashed driver = BSOD.
Cons: Had a bearing failure a few months into owning it, had to RMA through Gigabyte which was rather annoying... However card came back noise free...
Summary: overall very unsatisfied with product and tech. support/ warranty maint.
Pros: started out great ran everything stock oob superbly
Cons: less than 6 months after actually using it crashes under its own recommended settings via gaming evolved app. so i tried setting it down from there and it still crashes under any gaming within 30mins. sent card in three times for rma and they test it as "good" finally dthey offer me a GV-R928XOC-...
Summary: My Setup i7 3770k oc'd @ 4.5 ASUS z77 Sabertooth Corsair 16gb 1866 Vengeance RAM Gigabyte 7970 ghz x2 in Crossfire Corsair H80 Water Cooled Corsair HX 750 Gold Cert. Power Supply
Pros: Couldn't be happier with this product. I currently own two of these in crossfire and posted a 12328 Fire Strike score on 3dMark. This GPU in crossfire is almost overkill and outperforms much more costly Nvidia GPU's.
Cons: This card is voltage locked so for overclockers it will be a problem but having two of them I see no need for overclocking.
Summary: I looked over what i typed yesterday, and i noticed it didnt look that great, so i retyped it duno how to delete other message
Pros: Sorta fix able with Msi afterburner 1. Download Msi Afterburner 2. Click on green area where numbers are to type, or drag bar 3. Set Core Clock (MHz) : 800 4. set Memory Clock (MHz) : 1000 Hope this heps everyone else Now should not crash nearly as often, or at all, max my computer stays on for i...
Cons: If configuration is set to any higher it crashes
Pros: was great first 3 weeks, ran stuff nicely, was a 500 bucks well spent, and then... poop, But this is how i FIXED IT, Downloaded"msi afterburner" and set core clock to 800, and memory clock to 1000, and no more lines of death, have fun with a slower card and no crash's
Cons: then my computer crash's, not knowing what made it crash i then just went on my way, and it crash's again, after 2 days, and then after a month i figure out that its the video card and its too late to send it back. so im stuck with the poop..,,
Pros: I came from a 6800GT so this card is incredible to me. Paired with an i5 4670k I can run everything like Tomb Raider, Hitman Absolution, Dishonored, BF4 beta on Ultra and the feeling is awesome when I could only run League of Legends on Low and that was pretty much the only game I could play.
Cons: I do have trouble with Borderlands 2. I have no idea why but other than that, this card is ridiculously awesome.
