Good but not great

Bought one of these to crossfire with an already present 5870 with an AC Accelero twin turbo.

Don't be fooled by the custom cooler on this, while it is better than the stock cooler, it is still loud at anything past 50% fan speed, and for that it only gets 4 stars.

Also note, this is not a reference board which also isn't stated on the specs. The VF3000-A cooler is incompatible with this as the VRM sink doesn't fit.

Surprisingly good

Got sent one of these as a RMA replacement for a 4870X2 and was a bit concerned at first, it being half the card with half the memory but jeez, it doesn't have half the performance. It kicks my old card square in the nuts.

Never less than 25 fps on EFLC/BFBC2, had a quick play on Crysis and it's better in DX10 than the 4870x2 was. Grid runs anywhere between 80 and 200+fps! Best hundred and ninety quid I never spent!

A lot of reviews say this is a side-step from the previous fastest single card, I disagree. The improvement is obvious.

The only place the cheapness shows is the fan cover, which is made of a similar grade of plastic to a ketchup bottle but who cares, the thing sits upside down inside your PC case so who's gonna know?

One other note, the fan itself is significantly larger than on the 4870X2. This means this card runs quieter, even when getting a caning, than my Antec 1200s case fans. Temps on this card are 34c idle, 52c under load. Top notch.

Well worth it.

VTX 5870

Good Points:
1. It's a bargain for a 5870
2. Pretty good temperatures ( in short time I tested with normal cooling).

Bad Points:
1. Cheap fan and casing and my fan was hitting the edge of the casing on higher speed.
2. No heatsinks on the memory.
3. No VRM sensors - cannot monitor with GPU-Z or Everest.

My intention was always to fit an AXP cooler to this and luckily it does fit (although the fans have to be connected directly to the PSU because the VTX has a 3 pin fan connector and not the reference 4 pin)
The lack of memory heatsinks on the VTX could also be remedied with the AXP small heatsinks.

Basically for a 5870 this is a great buy and if I was lucky enough to get one of the reference versions then this would have been a five star.

Just perfect

Received this a few days ago - the card is just a 5870, no hassles. The cooling system is quiet (quieter than my old HIS 4870) and it performs as you would expect. Now only question is, do I get a second one and crossfire it? :) Thanks OcUK!

Quiet and powerful

So much performance, no noise, cooler than stock because of the giant copper heatpipes, very low idle power, bought it last week for 179.99 as i was ordering other stuff and had been waiting for these to drop in price, no matter what the next gen cards bring, they can't beat this in the value, heat, noise and relative performance. Some good pictures of this on the forum if you need to see the cooler, 2 x pci-e connectors are on the end not top so make sure you have space, Thank you ocuk.

It's Cheap

This card does what it says on the tin. But my sample won't look at running any sort of overclocking. I have had 10 years experience with buying graphics cards and expected more. Superb quick delivery from OC UK but be aware of what you are getting.
