7.4 Out of 10

Gigabyte's 7870 employs a massive three-fan cooler, the better to cool its 100MHz (10%) core overclock, which is the highest clock in our recap - it's tied with one of the PowerColor cards, and while that one is $10 more expensive, it also has a slight memory overclock.

Wrapping up our look at the cooler, it’s bears a quick mention that HIS is also promoting the IceQ cooler as a superior cooler for CrossFire operation.

I appreciate the reply! I never ended up figuring out I just always left it as it was! Thank you! (I forgot I even asked this tbh!)
I know this post is 5 months old so you probably already figured it out but just in case you didn't, and in case other people have the same question: that's the BIOS switch. Side 1 is the regular BIOS that you can flash and upgrade it. side 2 is the factory version of the BIOS and can not be flashed. You would use this switch in case you tried to flash side 1 and something went wrong and you bricked the bios. You can power down, switch to side 2 and boot up on the factory version of the BIOS. Once you have booted up, while running you can flip back to #1 and re-flash it and fix it.
Can anyone tell me what the switch on the GPU is for? There is a label showing 1 and 2 but i don't know?
loco me parese super mal que st5a grafica no pueda jugar al maincraf xd
