Summary: The fan started making very loud noises about 4 months after I purchased it new. The options for display types on the card are also a bit smashed together, and I had to buy many adapters in order to make my VGA monitors work with the card.
Summary: I used this for two years. It ran all the games I wanted on 1920x1080 with medium to high settings. Sadly, the two year warranty was just long enough. Thirty months of use and it ceased to function.
Summary: Seems like i am not the only one with Fan problems. I haven't used this card much either and one day started to play one of my games and all of a sudden computer shuts off. well i checked over everything, all was good. but i turned the comp back on and knoticed the fan wasn't spinning.
Summary: Pros: Stays cool (see other thoughts) Looks good fans are not that loud Other Thoughts: Card idles at about 40°c under load about 75°c under stock fan setting. Used MSI afterburner to set custom fan speed. Max of 60°c under load.
Summary: I had this card about 6 months - no problems - lots said fan made noise or quit but I have not had that problem. If I did, I would take the fan and oil the bearing. I went in knowing some had that issue.
Summary: i Should have pay attention to the rewiews on this product fan motor went this is truly a substanard item.Amazon is great company and this card is less that 7 months old you should pull this item and HIS items off shelf and find out whats going on this product lots bad reviews
Summary: The card itself works wonderfully, however three months after purchase the fan was making too much noise. I had to open it and oil the bearing to fix this. Usually fans need reoiling after much longer use than 3 months.
Summary: Paired with a XFX 6790 (no longer available). I have a side intake 200m fan blowing on my crossfire setup ( ). The temps are reaching near 70C while gaming. I'm not so impressed with CrossFire. One or two benchmarks show an increase but most don't. Win score didn't even change 7.6.
