Summary: Doesn't get too hot, plays the top titles (current, like battlefield 4, on ultra settings or Skyrim on ultra) with no problems. THIS IS A VERY LONG CARD. MAKE SURE YOU CAN GET IT INSIDE YOUR CASE WITH NOTHING OBSTRUCTING IT. It's also a 2 slot wide card.
Summary: First off, I'm using this card in my Cooler Master Storm Stryker case with great cable management (Spent 5 hours on it). This card never reaches 60 Celsius degrees when gaming on it on maximum settings.
Summary: This card is for my xfire setup. I decided to get this card after the r9 290x reviews were released and xfired 7970's offer more performance. This being a xfire setup temps tend to run hotter as there is not enough room between cards for a lot of air flow. This card runs quite and cool.
Summary: I had one HD5850 Xtreme, I have to say that is an amazing card, I could play almost all games with it through it's already a 4 years old card(in terms of design). After unboxing the card, I was truly amazed, it's a 12 inch "foot long" card, and it's pretty heavy compare to my old 5850 Xtreme.
Summary: This is my Very first Graphics card so i can't tell you how much better this is compared to other products. I kind of went all out getting a 7970. But my first impressions were very good. I can play ON ultra BAttlefield 3 completely normal.

Summary: I picked up a pair of these @ 300$ & change, finding the cooler only a shade below my 7970 lightning yet both cards fit perfectly with EK FC waterblocks. At 80% asic quality, the tandem clock up to 1225/1750 and remain cool at those clocks hovering around the 70° range (in stock form, of course;...
Summary: Pros Looks good, The card is well built and sturdy. The cooler is much quieter than reference design. The card averages 68c in crysis 3. Plays most games at max settings with frame rates at or above 60fps. Card is long, but it is not thick and can easily be cross fired.
