Summary: You get what you pay for. This 6950 is cheaper than many other models (ie. Sapphire Toxic, MSI Lightning), but the down side is that it has a really cheap cooler. The heatsink only uses 2 heat pipes but it was designed to be used with 4. The two fans on the card have very wide blade which is efficient for pumping air but very noisy. I use an Antec Mini P180 to house this card. Even with such quiet case, I can still hear the card from 5 feet away.
Pros: - Fast since it is a 6950, - Does unlock
Cons: - Loud, the loudest 6950 I have used, - very cheap cooling
