Premature fan failure

Taylor T., Newegg
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I never thought I'd live to see the day when I had to buy a new GPU for a reason other than the fact that a new GPU was required to play the games I want to play. Sad that this otherwise fine GPU is now nearly worthless because something as simple as a fan can't be cheaply replaced on it.
  • Pros: I was very happy with the graphical performance of the GPU.
  • Cons: Fan has two settings: Loud and Louder Fan got even louder over time, then one day it became very quiet. When my PC started rebooting without warning when ever I'd do something graphically intensive, I realized it had gotten quiet because the fan had failed and was often not spinning at all. This ...

Fan died with a few months

Kungwal K., Newegg
2 June 2014
  • Summary: First experience with XFX, never had a vga card died on me before and I have had lots of them. Will probably be staying away from XFX from now.
  • Pros: Works great when it was working - had it hooked up to 4 monitors. WoW is the only game I play, so, not the most intensive need.
  • Cons: My computer started shutting itself off after a few months of installing this card - dead fan was the culprit!

Very very noisy fan

Kiran R., Newegg

Fan got broken after 14 month.

Alex "Alex", Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: Fan ball bearing got broken, can find replacement. Support is horrible. Need to create profile, then register product, if you have no barcode from box, you're out of luck. New heatsink cost $50.

2nd RMA

Michele M., Newegg
3 June 2013
  • Summary: Buy it for the warranty but be ready to wait and wait and wait thru their stupid rma process. Their rma guy stripped the screws on the housing of the card and sent it back on my DIME! Didnt even repair the fricken card in the first place, rather made it worse off than it was before i send it in.
  • Pros: Fast... adequate and still relevant.
  • Cons: One of the most horrible tech experiences I have ever had. Kevin and Mark are both pompus holes who lie for each other. They cover each others backs and constantly lie. They told me that their supervisors dont take calls. What? That pretty much sums it up for me. What kind of company is that?

bad card

Donald S., Newegg
13 April 2013
  • Summary: I guess it lasted for a little while
  • Pros: This card runs good, I didn't even buy it for gaming but my son suggested it.
  • Cons: After about 2 years, it started acting strange. The screen splits in the middle and the left side of the picture ends up on the right side of the screen and the screen has lots of fuzz in the picture. I started looking for a solution and noticed that this is a common problem with this card. proba...
