Gotta love LR for giving us the honest scoop on this. If Diamond gets P.O.d because you didn't just rubberstamp it on through, then its their loss. If they sent you something worth raving about then it gets an Editors' Choice award, this gets the Editor's Flop award for good reason. With its issues, I wouldn't even want to pay $100 since I'd have to redo the cooling thus raising the end price. Thanks guys for the heads up!
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Long time reader, first time poster. Legit Reviews is my #1 pc component review site! Thanks for being honest in your review about this card. When I buy parts, I often look for the most bang for my buck which sometimes leads to looking into cards like this one. Checking performance levels, power usage, heat, etc. all factor into that bang for the buck. Good review.
