Unfortunately, the card started having problem after a few weeks.

Battlefield 3 runs super smooth at 1920x1080 as well as all recent games i've tried (Arkham City, Dota 2, Skyrim, Starcraft 2, etc.)

They fixed and took a while to be sent back, I wasn't around and the card was sent back to them.

Impressive describes this card. Only thing I have that can stress this card is playing Crysis 2, DirectX 11 patch, high-resolution pack, all settings cranked to the max available. No abnormalities or slowdowns on any of the levels as long as I keep the card temperature down. Heaven DX11 Benchmark runs flawlessly without any issues, even with the fan sitting at default idle speed.

From card running at idle to full load underneath Crysis 2, the total wattage increase is only 200 watts. At idle it seems to draw 10 watts more than the ATI 5770 card it replaced.

Card has over twice the raw thru put of the previous card it replaced but the GPU rendering in Sony Vegas only improved 20% which indicates the drivers need serious work to improve it. Photoshop CS identifies the ATI OpenCL drivers and gives full GPU acceleration.

Sitting at idle, the card temperature is 57°C while the motherboard and CPU are sitting at 85°F! Default fan speed is to slow and allows the card to heat up to much whether at idle or at max. Setting the fan speed to 40% drops the temperature over 12°C without much noise. When playing games, I manually set the fan speed to 50-60% to keep the temps down in the 60-65°C range. The fan is loud at the higher speeds, but its low pitch sound makes it more bearable. At 100% it's impressive the amount of air it can move and how loud it is.

In my computer, the card has a 230mm fan on the left, two 140mm fans to the front, two 120mm fans to the back, and another 230 mm fan above so the card has cool air blowing across it at all times. When playing Crysis 2 or GPU rendering, it's impressive the amount of heat the card blows out of its vents. If you have a computer that normally runs hot, I'd look at one of the other brands with multiple fans.

Runs perfect and at 1125/1575 clocks all day without any voltage adjustment. Package came with two important cables that are usually not shipped with any cards except Sapphire. Overall my first Diamond card and a very pleasant experience. 10/10.

I purchased this card to replace an AMD 5770. I've replaced the stock bios with a 7970 GHz bios (official release) which increases stock clocks from 925/1375 to 1050/1500. The card runs at these speeds perfectly with no increase in temperatures. I get 30-35° in idle and 70-75° at full load in the most demanding games. Battlefield 3 runs super smooth at 1920x1080 as well as all recent games i've tried (Arkham City, Dota 2, Skyrim, Starcraft 2, etc.) The card is not noisy at all. I still have plenty of room to overclock but so far the current speeds are more than enough. I'd recommend this card to anyone who wants to enjoy smooth gameplay with little noise and a medium budget.

I have purchased multiple versions of the amd 7970's and find that many of them dump the heat internally or do not effectively remove it from the case. The cooler on this reference 7970 blasts the heat out of the back of the case. If you have the fans turned up over 50% this thing will get loud, but it will keep the card under 75 c. Performance? Maybe I got lucky, but it seems to have a high asic rating and functions accordingly. If I keep getting complaints about it from the spouse I may get permission to water cool it! IF you are in the market for a 7970 and like pushing things to the max, I would recommend this card over even the ghz versions.

Good value graphics card when it worked. I had 2 of these graphic cards go bad on me. The 1st one kept crashing my computer, I thought it was driver issues at first. Amazon replace the 1st one with no hassle in the there 30 days policy. The replacement card look like it was refurbished compared the 1st card, I didn't mind at 1st as longed as it worked. Unfortunately, the card started having problem after a few weeks. The screen would randomly turn a solid blue color and the only way I could get it to go away temporarily was to restart my computer. After a few more days the screen would show broken lines in the once solid blue color screen. Again I did the troubleshooting routine to see if it was software or hardware issue. I even plugged in 3 monitors at the same time. Called tech support and found out it might be a memory leak issue with the graphics card. In the end I called up calling amazon and they offered me a refund for this graphic card, the only problem is all the 7970 cards on amazon is a lot more expansive then when I originally bought this card for $360.

I have never been a "fanboy" of any company, just a lover of computer hardware and tech. I have probably 12 video cards spanning the last 2 years in my computers here. I purchased this Diamond 7970 3GB card last week from Amazon and have never been happier. Overclockers will be overjoyed...I have this thing overclocked from 925MHz core to 1200 with NO voltage increase, stable! It runs cool, quiet (although I stuck a nice EK waterblock on it). They did everything right with this card. Do yourself a favor and pick one up!

I am waiting for these to get back in stock so I can buy two more, no joke. This is coming from a guy with 3 x 3GB 580s in his other rig:)

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Johnny
