Reviews

from completed build Blood Reign

Pros: Nice all black aesthetics with high lights of red on the fans. The card stays very cool while being put under any amount of stress. when I ran it ran fairly well however the number of times that the card would cause a crash due to being unstable are a huge draw back from what could been a very good 1080p gaming graphics card. I was getting good frame rate from several games including Battlefield 4 and GTA5 at around 50-70 fps, however as I stated many times the card would just inevitable crash my main monitor and the only way around it was a full reboot.

I have found this graphics card to be very unstable even at stock clocks and I have been frequently forced to bring the clocks down below stock, I may be speaking to XFX about this and finding a way to rectify the problems. I will update this review later if I do so and what the out come of that is.
