Asus 7950 DirectCU II Design Flaw Tags: Graphics Cards Asus Graphics Last response: February 25, 2012 3:05 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Nibhor February 24, 2012 1:15:47 PM Just to spread the word. The Asus 7950 DirectCU II has a design flaw. This has been highlighted by the French site Hardware.fr. The build construction of the 7950 DirectCU II is nothing like the 7970 DirectCU II. The huge cooler is retained by only four screws. The pressure is not sufficient it can get loose.
