PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 AXR9 290 4GBD5-PPDHE 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a really great card. Runs significantly quieter than the reference card coolers. Hashes around 860Kh/s out of the box with stock clocks. I've read on some forums to avoid PowerColor for mining - except that I haven't had any issues with these.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Just glad I got mine when they were still $550, not $700.

Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1475M 1475W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works great - if it's not DOA.

Cons: 1 of the 4 I had purchased was DOA. A friend of mine bought 2 and had one DOA. RMA's are easy enough, just inconvenient.

Other Thoughts: For everyone saying "It can't power my 3 or 4 GPU's" - you need to look at the box or the manual. The PCI-E +12v 2 rail can only push 900W. Three R9 290's running at 100% will max that out and force you to use adapters to power the fourth card from the +12v 1 system rail (an EPS to 8-pin PCI-E adapter, and dual molex to 6-pin PCI-E). If the system abruptly shuts down as soon as it starts picking up steam, it's because you're trying to run 4 beefy cards off the PCI-E Rail.
