Ultra Durable VGA™
Features & Benefits Lower GPU Temperature Ultra Durable VGA board provides dramatic cooling effect on lowering both GPU and memory temperature by doubling the copper inner layer of PCB. Better Overclocking Capability Ultra Durable VGA board reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient state, thus effectively lowers noises and ensures higher overclocking capability. Decrease Power Switching Loss Ultra Durable VGA board allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency.
Patented "Triangle Cool" Technology
GIGABYTE introduces the latest exclusive "Triangle Cool" Technology to reach a better cooling performance. The latest patented technology combines fin with clip module in a special triangle shape. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans. Therefore, the "Triangle Cool" Technology provides a more efficient air flow for the cooling system.

First time PC builder. Really happy with this GPU got a 1200mhz overlock on the core even with the voltage lock. People say that roughly you need to have +200mhz on a 7950 to match a 7970 so theoretically overclock on of these to 1200mhz matches a 7970 ghz at 1000mhz at 100$ cheaper. Fans are quiet enough don't really notice them at all when gaming and the temps during 100% load stay around 60 to 67 with overclock which is good enough again. Got 42 FPS on metro last light benchmark utility with everything at very high, texture filtering at x16.
All in all this is my first video card purchase but overall very happy with the experience. Got a good/stable overclock, it's not to loud, and temperatures are good enough. The HD 7950 card in general is probably one of the best values for performance propitiations out there.
I've only had it for about a month now, but it has not let me down yet. Whisper quiet, very fast. Benchmarked 56 fps on Ultra in Tomb Raider, as well as a 90 fps average in Bioshock Infinite on max settings. Even after a good 5 hour gaming session, I have yet to hear the fans. For the price and the performance, I highly recommend this GPU.
Built my very first PC with this card last week. Came with Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite. Turning off AA (I don't notice the difference), both games play effortlessly at 60fps. Definitely would recommend it to anybody looking for a good value/high performance card -- especially because of the Never Settle bundle!
First I should mention I have chosen not to add any pros/cons or to rate this card based on my specific use. I think this is a great card especially for the price. So I've given it 4 stars, because I would buy it again. And any/all pro's/cons listed are unrelated to crypto mining.
I am currently using this card for Litecoin and cryptocurrency mining, OC'ed to 1100MHz core 1350MHz memory and getting great hash speeds of 650kh/s. I am not using this card for gaming, however the Windforce design keeps the card cool (72 deg max on an open air case). Not too noisy but of course you can hear them three fans going at it.
The only disadvantage is voltage is locked to 1.250 (that's quite high, really), so there isn't much leeway in overclocking. There are guides on how to downgrade the firmware (at your own risk) to bring down the voltage to stock 1.090v.
