A Closer Look

The Sapphire Nitro R7 370 features a 2 fan cooler. The card is on the smaller side. The plastic shroud has a nice black with silver highlights. The card takes up the typical 2 slot card.

A single 6 pin PCI-E connector is all that is needed to power the card. The connector is located on the opposite end of the video connectors, so fitting it into narrower cases should not be a problem

Sapphire has saw fit to include at least one of each of the most common monitor connections.

The rear of the card does not feature a back plate. Most cards in this price rage do not either.

Accessories are simple. A quick installation guide, driver disk, and DVI to VGA convertor is all that is included.
