Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Card performs well for the money from graphical point of view
Easy to install
Bad points:
Fans and noise
On my unit I've been having an issue with the fans jumping up to 3000+rpm from time to time for no reason. This got worse over time to the point that sometimes the fan would be going at 100% from the moment the post screen came up and wouldn’t slow down (the longest I left it doing this was around 30 minutes). Sapphire told me to return the card to the supplier (ebuyer) which I did, and was then told no fault could be found with the card. Its now been back twice and the fault continues (tried in two systems both had the issue). Due to the noise level I have put my old card back in and basically give up on this one as the fault cant be replicated...

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great card, not tried bf4 yet but can max bf3 at 60fps+ In combination with amd a8.

Please note, two power connectors are needed although both molex adaptors are supplied.

Fans quiet.
Bad points:
Big card and was a tight fit. To allow sufficient space for ventilation I had to remove my sound cars. Needs 3 spaces to allow ventilation.

This card runs hot and to avoid driver throttling and unexpected issues consider if your case cooling is sufficient!
