Summary: Pros: Just received two of these cards today and unlocked all 1536 shaders on both of them. Stock voltate with 900Mhz core clock. ...mining BitCoins Cons: None Other Thoughts: Do not flash this card with a 6970 BIOS. Save a copy of the existing BIOS and then unlock the shaders with RBE.
Summary: unlocked and and overclocked to 900/1400Mhz 1.165v with 1536 shaders Pros: Easily unlocked and overclocked max temp 70c on full load and 36c on idle @ 1600x1200 res and I bought it just for $171.95!!!! Cons: Just a little big... rather than that is OK.
Fast, cool running - even when overclocked, excellent deal, quality

Summary: Excellent video card. Gigabyte does it again. This replaced another Radeon HD and was the type of upgrade that on paper didn't seem "that big." However, after installing the card and re-installing the latest AMD/ATI drivers, I was smiling from ear to ear.
Summary: This video card is quite even though it has 3 fans and it runs cool. The video is excellent. I can run BF3 on ultra and MW3 at its highest settings and run 90 or better frame rates. Make sure before purchasing that your case can handle the length of this video card.
Summary: I bought this card to replace my Geforce GTX 560 which wouldn't render Starcraft 2 properly and had graphical glitches no matter which version of drivers I used. This card works flawlessly with every game I tried including HOMM6, Batman: Arkham City, and several others.
