from completed build Vladimir R9 - An Air-Cooled Budget Gaming PC
Fantastic card for the price! Not for 4K gamers (obviously), but will run most demanding games (i.e. Crysis 3) at High settings @ 1080p with good frame rates while staying cool and quiet. If maximum performance is what you're looking for, go for the Toxic editions of Sapphire's cards. But for small form factor builds and other applications where cool and quiet operation are important, Vapor-X cards are simply awesome.
Very amenable to overclocking. I had no problems running the card with a GPU clock of 1200MHz and memory clock of 1500MHz, which surprised me. Maybe I won the silicon lottery? Who knows. Many other OCers have reported similar successes with this card. Card still ran cool - around 64C max at these clocks. I'm just a casual gamer though so I'm happy running the card at stock clocks.

It's very quiet, I never hear it, fans don't even need to spin on idle !
