PowerColor AXR9 290X 4GBD5-MDHG/OC Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support OC Video Card (BF4 Game Bundle)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - 4gb VRAM
- good scaling from crossfire
- runs eyefinity perfectly on max settings in any game ive tried
- comes with 30mhz overclock standard
- this card really shines if you put it under water
- comes with free BF4 code
-

Cons: - stock cooler is pretty much useless (too loud, doesnt remove heat effectively enough)
- stock temps under load are too high
- temp based throttling is stupid

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these back in January of this year for use in a water cooling build. I used them for about a week before installing the watercooling, and while the fans were loud they were not overbearing. Since installing the watercooling loop, these cards have performed flawlessly.

If you are going to buy this card tho, I highly suggest either getting some kind of aftermarket air cooler, or putting a waterblock on it and going the watercooling route. It *needs* better cooling to reach its full potential, but once you eliminate the heat throttling this card cranks.
