Decent, but hot 01/11/2014
Just running 1 of these without overclocking I can play all of my games on ultra with no issue, that's great since it only cost me 180$, great performance for price.
I can't crossfire these without a nuclear explosion happening in my case. They do not blow heat out like they should, or like the 290x I have, they just sit there and cook. My 290x runs full load at 80, these cards in crossfire run at 95 without full load due to spacing. I had to open the case and blow a squirrel cage fan onto them. Almost require liquid cooling to run more than 1.
Subtracted eggs due to lack of cooling, running 2 of these side by side should have been in the design.
Issue could also be resolved with a motherboard with a bigger gap in pci-e slots, but I should not have to do that.
