Have two of these cards running in crossfire, both with modded vBIOS. I have been very impressed with their ability to keep cool (72*c) with a custom fan profile, while running at 970mhz each and I haven't even bolted on their water blocks yet. With Skyrim's settings maxed out in 1080 (using RadeonPro) I am seeing a frame rate averaging around 90-110fps. However, they still cannot seem to stably run The Witcher 3 for some reason. When it will run I get a frame rate of 42fps (at medium 1080 settings).
