Pros: Beefy card that packs quite a few horses. Stays relatively cool at 100% load. I look forward to grinding games with this beast.
Cons: The only beef I have with this card (And XFX) is the presence of the warranty voiding stickers on the cooler screws. I was hoping to install an aftermarket cooler, but cannot without voiding the warranty. Also, the VRM's run hotter than I would like. Good thing the warranty exists.
Summary: If case fan placement wasn't critical with this card I would give it 5 stars.
Pros: This card is fast, great for gaming and scrypt mining.
Cons: If you are going to run this card hard, you have to have a fan pointing at the back of the card (back of the card being the front of the PC) otherwise the VRM will get too hot, I think this is a problem with all manufactures of 280x.
Pros: EDIT: In my other review I had mentioned that the XFX B.E. R9 280x card was comparable to Sapphire's Vapor X. I misspoke on that part. I meant that the card is almost up there with the Sapphire's Toxic R9 280x.
Cons: EDIT: I had mentioned that the card can be loud at times. This is usually when it is heavily under load, but when it is idle is is pretty quiet.
