SAPPHIRE 100361-8GL Radeon R9 290X 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC(UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - 8GB GDDR5
- DX 12 ready
- Multi-monitor support
Compared to my case fans, it is quiet(er). I haven't had any problems with it so far in the few months that I've had it. Most games will average 45-50 FPS on my Samsung UD590 4K monitor (max resolution).

Cons: - Doesn't make me breakfest

Other Thoughts: - AMD FX-8350 cpu (Cooler Master Seidon 240M)
- Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard
- G.SKILL Trident X 16GB 1866MHz (2x8GB)
- Samsung UD590 4K monitor
- Rosewill Hive series 750W
- Toshiba Q Series Pro 128GB SSD
- Toshiba PH3300U 3TB HDD
- Western Digital 10EZEX 1TB HDD
- DIYPC Skyline -07-B Black/Blue SECC ATX Full Tower

GIGABYTE GV-R797OC-3GD Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have been using this card for a while now and it needs a new, satisfying review. I didn't order this card off of Newegg, I went and purchased this from a man (who originally had CrossFired four of them) 211 some miles away from me for only $220 (plus a card to redeem 3 games of my choice, best deal ever), despite it being pre-owned, it has never let me down. In fact, it has always proven to overkill some games for me, surpassing 60 frames (my monitor only can go as fast as 60 fps, always have to VSync) consistently. I can play any (all of my games including BF4) game on ultra and still surpass 60fps. People say it is loud and "whiny", but I beg to differ, it runs pretty quiet. The fans on this GPU are outstanding at keeping it cool. I have run benchmarks on the highest settings I could find and it managed to never proceed past 55 Celsius. If you want an amazing GPU, consider this one greatly (if you can find it anywhere). If I could, I would have got a second one.

Cons: I don't have a second one to completely overkill every game and benchmark.

Other Thoughts: Please bring this back in stock, this was a great GPU. The other reviewers have no idea how powerful this card is.

Arctic Silver Arcticlean Thermal material Remover & Surface Purifier ACN-60ML (2-PC-SET)  - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It does what I need it to do. I was running stock thermal grease, so I felt the need to replace it.

- Lowered idle temperatures ~5 Celsius
- Lowered load temperatures ~4-5 Celsius

Cons: It did seem a little runny (not too much, but noticeable) out of the tube, but I am not deducting and egg for that.
