3 out of 5 eggsGo water cooled

Pros: Runs most games maxed out, tends to out perform my 8350 @4.6 with 16g, 1866 memory. I think if I had a better cpu than this card would really shine.

Cons: Loud fans and makes a lot of heat, don't bother with cards like this if you don't have a lot of air moving thru the case.

Other Thoughts: First one died after 8 hours, second rcard has been running fine. I due tend to get odd and random like artifacts or glitches while gaming. Not sure if its hardware related or software but it does detract from your confidence that its not going to crash mid game. Seems to keep on working most time, I think the key is keeping the temps below 90, above that your asking for trouble.

5 out of 5 eggsA powerful, power hungry, hot, graphics card

Pros: Has lasted long, works as expected, benchmarks are similar to what you can find on review websites. Doesn't throttle down.

Cons: THE HEAT!! Usually Gigabyte's Windforce cooler is overkill, but this card pushes it. It's not the quietest thing in the world, but you're not getting much quieter without putting water or Arctic on it.

But... I knew this going in, and the other 290s can only dissipate the heat so much, so still 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: When we first put this card in, the computer died after loading up Far Cry 3. Turns out the sh**-tastic power supply that Cyberpower put in our computer couldn't take 70% load. How about that...

No issues after getting a Corsair 600W. Buy good power supplies my peeps.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems with heat, quality, and RMA

Pros: It is, in fact, an R9 290. When it runs it is capable of pushing 60 fps at 1440p with many modern games at very high settings. Enjoyed playing BF4, Shadows of Mordor, and Star Citizen Arena Commander at max, or near max, 1440p.

Cons: HEAT! As with 290s and 290Xs this thing could cook an egg! The fans scream in a case with very respectable airflow. This results in throttling in many situations, but not until after the fans have pegged at their "jet engine" setting.

After about 10 months of ownership I began to have issues with the card was suddenly placed under load by a game launch. This resulted in artifacts and eventually crashes with increasing frequency. The card finally died late last month at a young age of a year. This began the most frustrating part of owning this card.

RMAing to gigabyte has been absolutely awful! After submitting an RMA I was able to get a code after several days. I sent several emails asking for clarification of the process and NEVER received any response (I eventually had to call in, and over a week later the emails still haven't been responded to). Based on UPS shipping I know my card was signed for on noon of the 13th. It is now the 17th and my RMA still say gigabyte is waiting for the card to arrive.

Other Thoughts: Avoid at all cost! If the card dies (and based on other reviews it seems likely to) you will have to deal with gigabyte returns, which is awful. I would be much more angry if I hadn't decided to buy another card in the interim. In fact, this experience was so bad I bought by first ever nVidia card and I have to admit that I love it. And for the record, my 970 has no trouble with heat in the same case.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 6 Months, I finally fixed it.

Pros: After installing this, my computer kept crashing. Temps were fine. I thought it might be my power supply, so I bought a new one. It still would randomly crash. I declocked the card and it was more stable with few crashes. Finally, I decided to load SAPPHIRES BIOS onto the card. It has not crashed once in almost 4 months and gives me the same exact FPS in games.

Cons: gigabyte has horrible QA. I will never buy another product from them.

and yes I had gigabyte's latest bios for the card.

1 out of 5 eggsIts a nightmare.

Pros: When it works, it fly's.

Cons: But it doesn't work for long.Black screen issues and just random stuttering. Spent a month trouble shooting before and checking my rig to make sure its the card at fault.

Other Thoughts: Be very cautious before buying this card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I got this for Christmas and I am very pleased I'm able to run Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3, The Evil Within, Battlefield 4, and saint's row 4 on max with great frame rate. Stays very cool despite what other reviewers have stated but then again I do use a CM HAF XB Evo and 2 120mm fans pulling air in with a 200mm and w 120mm exhaust. The 3 free games were a plus and I also got Civilization: Beyond Earth I'm very please with this may get another one for crossfire

Cons: maybe a con if you have a vertical case REALLY heavy which is understandable since it's got a full metal fan shroud. length but not really a con but bigger than I expected

5 out of 5 eggsGood results

Pros: -Good performance
-Seems to keep quiet and low enough temp when given enough air (most of the time)

Cons: -Despite all the good tech specs all these "It broke after a few days" is kind of scary
-Makes a roar when at full cooling
-Lack of dedicated crossfire external bridge makes card highly reliant on how good of a motherboard setup you have

Other Thoughts: Turns out having two of these really does allow you to crank up video settings on a 3x1080 setup. Quite happy with the results!

1 out of 5 eggsDont buy this card

Pros: i don't know, i didn't get to play any video games or do any kinds of tests. it looks kinda cool i suppose.

Cons: The first card i purchased didn't work, it was rev. 1.0. So i had to RMA it. The replacement card i got was also rev. 1.0 and i suspect that is was used, also not working. nice

Other Thoughts: the newegg customer service was really nice and helpful in replacing the card and ultimately refunding my money. It's really not there fault that the card doesn't work. I'm happy with my RMA experience but not the product. I will be shopping at newegg again in the future.
