BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z87X 3D LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Full featured, looks nice, on board numerical LED display that shows mobo codes and temperature. BIOS is well laid out, simple to overclock. Plenty of I/O, and generally very stable.

Cons: None, it's a simple board plenty good enough for a gaming or multimedia build. If you spend more money you can get more BIOS features, a bit better voltage regulation for extreme overclocking, not much else.

Other Thoughts: Very highly recommend Biostar, I have done AMD builds with their boards as well and they are very stable and well designed.

SAPPHIRE 100362SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this card in October 2013 the day it came out. The price was $400.00. Lol. Since October 2013, I've been able to run any game at maximum settings. What else can I say? I buy most every new release, the drivers and hardware here just turn every game into butter smooth gaming heaven. BF4 / Thief in Mantle are fantastic. True Audio with hardware reverb convolution, pretty sweet. Whatever the price, whatever the punishment that AssCoin miners have inflicted on our gaming community, don't doubt that this is a just perfect 1080p gaming card that can run any game on max and then some.

Cons: AssCoin miners inflated demand, and NewEgg saw a profit to be had, and they increased the price of the cards. Not sure who to blame.

Other Thoughts: My PC feels like a bad a-z hot rod with this card.

SAPPHIRE 100362BF4SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card Battlefield 4 Edition
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought my card the morning they were released, it's been a while now and this card is incredible for gaming. PLEASE don't pay attention to reviews by bitcoin miners, they aren't pc gamers- they're just turds trying to make a quick buck. I keep my beta drivers up to date, and game often and it's a fantastic card.
Guess what? I have a case with properly configured fans, and my card never makes a sound. Unbelievable right? People claiming the card gets loud are letting it overheat, it's an expensive card so install basic push pull or pull ventilation.
I got this because I wanted to run max settings on any game with my 144hz monitor, it does that job fantastically.

24/7 OC Settings using MSI Afterburner:
Power limit: +20
GPU Clock: 1 ghz
MEM Clock: 1.3 ghz

Yes, not only does it stay quiet and cool with a properly designed case, it overclocks very well.

If you overclock it too much and crash, Catalyst will automatically apply the overclock at the next system start. That = crash loop. You'll have to start up in safe mode and disable the overclock. Use MSI Afterburner or Trixx.

Besides that, it's an unbelievable GPU.

Other Thoughts: Coin miners will be the ruin of AMD if this keeps up
