Temperature was not a problem for me partly due to my Antec 900 computer tower/case, which have 5 fans to keep things running cool. For other Antec 900 case owners, I'm using the optional cage fan and the Hd 4890 will still fit inside the case. My Hd 4890 idles on desktop at 50-51C with its fan on auto setting. Although my card is overclocked to 900/1000Mhz, the hd4890 will 'declock' itself down to 240/1000Mhz while on desktop and viewing 2d applications. (It jumps up to roughly 500Mhz Core/975Mhz Mem when watching movies or youtube videos). I believe this is to save power consumption and temperature control. When playing video games, the hd 4890 will jump back to my overclock settings of 900Mhz core/1000Mhz Mem.
I do not have 2 pcie 16x slot on my mobo, so crossfire configuration setups were not an option. I believe this was an excellent upgrade from my old video card the 8800gt 512mb. Even though this card lacks dx11 features, it will run new games in dx 9 and dx 10 modes. (You'll just miss out on some tessellation features though). If you're in need of a video card now and looking for a single card upgrade solution and do not care for direct x 11 features, this card is a really nice choice.
What I enjoyed most is the ATY Catalyst Profile Manager. I created a desktop profile ( GPU = 500 MHz and Memory = 490 MHz).
Even with my 1920*1200 this profile keeps the card warmth below 50C. When I have to play hard, I select the gaming profile using default speeds. There is no need to over clock.
Since I have it , ATI has sent 3 main actualizations, good improvements them all. If the money is not a problem go for a ATI 5970 or 5870.
If you want a good ROI, this is the option for you.
The Card is great and move very good all my games (WOW, Crisis2, Ghost Recon, etc...) the only issue is that the bundle game doesn't came included I call XFX and they say that almost a year ago they don't sell this card with bundle, send a email to tigerdirect but after 2 weeks I got 0 answer from they "Customer Service".
On a Few Works, Great Card but no Bundle Game and 0 support from seller.
Also, while the configuration tool (Crystal I think it's called) has a check-box to enable crossfire there are no diagnostics or indicators that the cards are actually operating in crossfire mode. The crossfire cables, though indicated as being included in the box (says so on the box itself that I received) were not included in the box. Kudos to Amazon customer service however as they gave me a prompt credit and I was able to purchase the crossfire cables (you need two it turns out). Finally the documentation does not indicate which of the (combined FOUR) output connectors you should use in crossfire configuration and you can not get customer service of any kind (inlcuding download of drivers) without registering on their site. The installation/user guide on the disk provided is almost useless - only the most basic info anyone who ever installed a video card already knows, and no details about crossfire or dual-link configuration. Very annoying. I also concur with the reviews that have commented on the length. I have plenty of room in my server case, but even there the length makes it awkward to get to several of the front panel headers on the MB, and also makes for some rather more strained cable connections (due to strain relief for various connector types and header location on MB) that I would ideally like. This is borderline 4 stars, and if price/performance ratio wasn't above average these would only get 3 stars.
In the process of writing this review I've talked myself down to 3 stars. One of the KSPs is the crossfire support, and the lack of support, cables, and documentation for the crossfire mode is not up to par.
(Configuration tool is Catalyst, not Crystal)
It is an OK card when it is not over heating and shutting your system down.
