If you buy one of these used you are able to get some really good deals - as I did

James Harris, Amazon

  • Summary: These boards have been out for sometime now and I believe the price for one of these new is a bit high for the performance you get. If you buy one of these used you are able to get some really good deals - as I did. :-) Don't get me wrong, this board works quite well and will handle most folks needs handily. The fan is quiet and the temperatures are very acceptable. I don't dabble in overclocking so I have no input about that.

  • Summary: My pair of these were set in a crossfire setup. they worked well for 25-28 days in a crossfire setup. I had an i7 3770k. I had a 600gd intel ssd. An asus maximus gene v mobo. a seasonic psu 1000 watt platinum. they started to micro stutter. I roll back my catalyst drivers from 13.2 to 13.1 no go to 12.10 no go to 12.8 no go did a reinstall no go gave up and returned them to amazon. I had a 1440p screen and needed the power to run them with cf .

Not a great miner without getting unstable

BrettB, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: You can really crank the memory clock up, but then it gets unstable and can only run for a day without crashing. I had it stable at 1650 MHz memory clock, and 974 MHz core clock speed, but was only getting 680 KH/s in BAMT. On the positive side the fan is great for cooling your case if you have more than 1 card because it blows the air out the back unlike a triple or dual setup.

Very fast card for a reasonable price, but loud and now glitchy

Courtney L., Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I'm very impressed by the speed of this card. It's not a cheap card, but it did its job admirably, allowing me to turn nearly every modern game to Ultra settings. The fan gets pretty loud when I play a game, which is pretty distracting because I prefer not to use headphones while gaming. Also, the card is HUGE; I had to move a hard drive to another bay and allow the card to protrude into that space or it wouldn't have fit.
