Summary: Worked for 2 days, then made a popping noise and smelled up the room. After this, it was dead. Luckily, XFX honored their warranty and replaced it with a R9 280X, basically a slightly faster version of the same card.
Summary: Not the fastest card in town especially for the price but I needed this a particular item for a friends build and he HAD to have this card. Of course it was over priced for the performance but customer gets what customer wants.
Summary: This card has decent performance for mining but the cooling is bad, I have to run several fans blowing into the existing fan to keep it at a decent temperature, and the stupid metal stickers on the fan hubs will shift over time and throw the fans off balance.
Fast for the Money - But loud and questionable drivers

Summary: After a lot of playing with it, I've sent this card back. I hope I don't regret it because it had an amazing value. I was able to max out almost every game I played at 1080P which is amazing for the price of this unit. Other reviewers have said this already, but the card is indeed louder than it needs to be. I've heard GHz edition 7970s quieter than this card from XFX.
Summary: While this card is killer. And takes anythign i throw at it its 2 fans ar lacking the abilit yto cool the card. I have had many times where the video starts flashing and getting blocky the machine starts acting up. I really wish they xfx had done a better job at cooling this card. I have owned many of there cards and this black edition jsut is not up to there par for black edition cards.
