Summary: I bought 3 of these for different machines. The cards work beautifully, when they work. Initially I got a few bad ones, that only worked for a few weeks each (the 2x power ports went), but now I have 3 of these cards that have been going strong for over a year... they must've fixed the issue
Pros: Spectacular graphics. Exceptionally high frame rate, even while playing some pretty demanding games. Works very well with 3D modeling software such as Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, and Maya....
Cons: Needed to RMA a few before getting 3 that work
Summary: It's a really nice card with an excellent cooling setup and clean look. I hope I just got a hold of a bad card.
Pros: For starters, this card ran everything at Ultra with no problems until recently. I play WOW, BF4, Skyrim, CS:GO, ESO, and Metro:LL. This card could run them with no problems.
Cons: I purchased the card in November 2013 and it worked great until last night when in the middle of a CS:GO map the computer screen flashed, went black and my PC rebooted. I could hear it starting back up but had no video just a HDMI source not found message. I rebooted a few times and still nothing...
Pros: Very good card Performs better then a GTX 770 for a much cheaper price
Cons: Artifacts at high tempetures I have RMad this card already and still continues to artifcat once it gets hot, The only reason im giving this 4 stars instead of 3 is because I plan on watercooling it
Pros: The card ran great for a little over a year, then started rebooting the system. Ran a few tests and isolated it to the card and then reached out to XFX. It's awesome they have lifetime warranties! XFX easily approved an RMA and is now shipping a 280X as a replacement (which is even more powerful ...
Cons: It is disturbing that the card died within 2 years... I don't think I have ever had a card die that quickly before. And I tend to keep them for many years (passing them down to other computers and then other family members who don't game once they're really old). If not for XFX great support, I w...
Summary: I'm *only* getting around 640 khash/s per card with temps under 80c. I was hoping to be around 700. Below are my cgminer 3.7.2 settings. Please e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you've had more success or feel free to tip me @ 1Gz8JuXdccVMC3ZtoWPd8GPmhFER7EEuHB if this has been helpful.
Pros: Very stable and reliable. I set up a true headless miner that I can forget about and hasn't let me down.
Cons: I'm a little disappointed with the hash rates I'm getting right now. Also, these cards seem to be voltage locked so you'll have to flash the bios if you want to undervolt them (I haven't done this yet.. I'll have to research more before I try it). I have numerous fans on them to keep the temps down.
Summary: I can't find a full water block for this in stock in the USA. I found that there is one available but only a single choice. I was considering this because my cards run hot and loud. I bought two these to try scrypt mining, and they don't excel at this, but battlefield 4 looks great.
Pros: They are available.
Cons: They run warm to hot. My case and motherboard don't allow enough room for crossfire and cooling. Expensive but this is the same with all ATI cards at the moment. XFX changed from a reference layout to a different layout. Hashrates are low if you want to use for scrypt mining. I was in the 400 - 5...
Summary: UPS left this on my porch in the rain lucky for me Newegg uses some good stuff for packing, the box was wet nearly all the thur BUt card was fine. I wish Newegg would sell us items we already bought at the same price so I could afford another one. I mean I think i got screwd outta the rebate too.
Pros: Great card, can over clock it a lil bit, play anything on highest settings. I got mine few days for thanksgiving for $350.00 with $30 rebate, Would love another for cross fire
Cons: When over clocked will run very hot.(fixed this witha $10 PCI slot fan FOX-2) , Seems to be a lil fal off after a month of hard use. Now seems to be anywhere from 450-600 bucks depending on what day you check here. Can't afford another for cross fire
