Summary: Been using this GPU since Nov of 2013. I am very pleased of my purchased. Stock setting 800mhz core and 1250 memory, i easily overclock this card to 1125mhz core and 1500mhz memory without even have to adjust my voltage. The heat ran no hotter then 80-87c... I'm using this GPU with a FX8350 cpu & Asrock3 990FX motherboard all runs nicely... BF4 runs easily over 70-120fps depending on the maps, it has it dips but that's because the game has it development issues.
Summary: CAME ON TIME APPEARED TO BE IN NICE CONDITION . WHEN INSTALLED IT FAILED TO OPERATE THE BOARD IS WORKING WITH ANOTHER 7950 ALL SLOTS WERE TESTED THE CARD IS BAD. but wait,, the seller when informed was quick to respond and seems willing to either replace or send to MSI for another card i will keep you posted MSI AMD Radeon HD 7950 OC Boost 3GB GDDR5 DVI/HDMI 2-Mini DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card R7950-3GD5/OC BE
Awesome card. Runs cool even overclocked to 1100MHz.

Summary: This has been my first experience with an AMD card and I have been nothing but impressed. It runs cool so long as your case has good ventilation and has a lot of overclocking potential. I haven't experienced the noise that others have complained about. It's not quiet by any means but not any louder than other cards I've had in the past.
Summary: Performance is good but it runs very loud and very hot. The 10.5 Inch length might persuade some to use this in an HTPC case. Don't you will regret it. For a regular tower, I'm sure it's fine but for HTPC, it sounds like a hairdryer.
Summary: This card is probably one of the most unreliable cards I have ever purchased. Purchased it in October 6 and Died in November. It is very powerful and can run all the games in ultra settings at 1080p but the quality and reliability is probably the worst. Don't expect the RMA Department to fix it for you or offer a replacement since it was discontinued this November.
Summary: I bought this card on sale for a little under 200. It was a great deal, and can play anything ive thrown at it maxed out. (BF4 on ultra with 45fps) But... This card runs very hot. idk if its just the one i got or if its a common issue but it will get up to about 73 Celsius when playing graphics heavy games. Its not like im playing for long periods either, it will ramp up in temperature rather quickly. It makes me scared to overclock it without modifying the fan.
Summary: This was a very good graphics card. Every game I played was able to play maxed settings, although I haven't tested it with next gen games like battlefield 4 and above. The reason is this card died about 4 months into use. One day it was working fine, the next it would not display output at all, just out of the blue. Now I gotta try to get a replacement from msi for another one, since it is way past the return date.
Summary: **UPDATE** 11/29/2013 MSI has contacted me personally and have fixed my rebate problems. So I have updated this product to 5 stars. Since the card has run flawlessly since I have received it. **UPDATE** This is actually a great card if you can find it on sale with out an rebate. Because thy decided on DENYING MY REBATE because they said I didn't include my Receipt and that the seller doesn't have Privileged to honor the REBATE.
