5 out of 5 eggsThis card is great

Pros: On air fans at 80% 1100 core 1400 on the memory 70c is the highest temp i have seen after 4 hours of gaming. I am going to do stress tests and update the review but so far on air alone this thing is a monster.

Cons: None yet will update after more use and testing

Other Thoughts: More testing to be done I will be back.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck?

Pros: Quiet and sleek custom HSFA(Heat-Sink and Fan Assembly). Wish waterblocks looked this good.
Full RPM is ~25dBa in an open-air chassis. I have radiator fans louder than that at full RPM. I can hear it, but it's the quietest noise producing thing in my system.
Like the R9-290X version, the XFX logo lights up bright pure white. It's also stainable acrylic, so if you use some colored marker, you can get whatever color you want. Be very careful with such a mod though. Not only will it likely void your warranty, but you'll go nuts if you apply too much. I do wish it was RGB LED backlit with an optional USB internal header to change the color in software.
Performance is grand. As long as I don't crank the AA to absurdly unnecessary levels like reviewers do, I can get 60+ fps in any game tested thus far. That's just without high AA; everything else maxed out at 1920x1200 which is 10% more demanding that 1080p. Albeit this is at my OC settings of 1100/5500. The highest I've achieved stable on the XFX HSFA is 1165/6000. I'ld link to my Firestrike benchmark, but that's not allowed. So take my word for it when I say I got 11411 graphics score with this card at those settings. I still get higher than a stock Titan at 1100/5500 though, so I'm quite pleased. Some few games in beta like Lichdom will have occasional artifacting at anything higher than those settings, hence why I keep it knocked down. OH! Almost forgot, the peak temperature DELTA is 60 Celsius. So if my ambient is 20C, it's 80C, and that's while running OCCT's furmark. I don't see more than 55C delta in games of any kind. Looking forward to seeing what it can do on water.

Cons: My only, and I mean ONLY gripe is with those two screws on the IO bracket.
They are pan-head. Which can conflict with some cases like mine. Fortunately, I yanked the countersunk screws that should've been used from my former card, and applied them in place of the pan-heads.
Here's how you can tell if they will conflict:
If the IO bracket mounting holes in the PC chassis have metal directly above or below all the way to the surface of the slot, check that it's not more than 1mm thick. Even then, you may have to remove the screws to slot it in, then put the screws back in after.

Other Thoughts: Reference model uses counter-sunk screws. All other brands I've checked use counter-sunk screws. Why at least this card comes with pan-head screws instead of reference/standard counter-sunk, is pretty much a complete mystery. However, that's just the admitted picky side of me. I won't let my subjective opinion influence my rating.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Good Looking, and Runs Hot.

Pros: -Runs everything flawlessly.

Cons: -It's going to run hot, especially if you try to stuff this in a Corsair 250D.

Other Thoughts: I believe EK makes waterblocks for this but in my system right now, it's running VERY hot with all the case panels on. You'll have to pay careful attention to case airflow and temperatures when dealing with this card.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello and Thank you for the great review. We hope your card serves you well into the future.

How hot is running hot? is it under 85'C?

4 out of 5 eggsPowerfull and sleek

Pros: Very fast, in crossfire handle everything at 1080p/1440p.
Nice clean design.
Exhaust vents on the side of gpu... works great with a side fan set to exhaust.
Good overclocking. Havent felt the need to go higher than 1125/1350.

Cons: Run hot. I recommend having a high rpm side case fan set to exhaust to get rid of the heat.
Elpida memory may limit overclocking.

Other Thoughts: Was worried about vrm temperatures on this card when i read reviews. The 2 gpus i recieved were version 4. My vrm 1 rarely goes above 80 and vrm 2 at 70. Gpu temps could be better but max out at 80 during stress testing and less ingame.
