If you're interested in spending money on a Radeon HD 7970, then the Club 3D royalAce is certainly worth considering. It is clearly the fastest Radeon HD 7970 that we've tested until now. It's also the hottest, which somewhat limits its overclocking potential. It's also noisier than average. If you're only interested in performance, then this Radeon HD 7970 royalAce is a good choice. Otherwise our recommendation from our recent round-up is the better alternative. The ASUS HD7970-DC2T-3GD5 is about six degrees cooler, about 10 dB(A) quieter, a little cheaper but also a little slower.
