MSI Radeon R9 290 GAMING 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Working like a champ.

Lower temps then when purchased. Thermal paste on these cards is junk. My friend reapplied his and temps dropped 9 Celsius

Looks awesome of course

Very strong card. Stonger than my 290 reference even at higher clocks, probably because of the Hynix RAM I imagine.

Hynix RAM

Cons: Thermal paste is lame and it has a dumb warranty sticker on the screw so you can't replace it. If you are going to put a sticker there so we can't improve the paste then at least use good paste. I don't want to void my warranty so I'm not going to remove the cooler like my friend did. But I wish I could lower my temps 9C like he did. Dumb policy.

MSI Radeon R9 290 GAMING 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So far so good.
High power.
Hynix RAM
RAM more powerful than my reference MSI 290
looks gorgeous
very quiet
very sturdy. The back plate does a good job of getting heat away from the PCB. The back plate gets very hot, so a good idea to get a fan to get that heat away from the card on there.

Cons: Core doesn't overclock as well as my Reference MSI
wish the fan were capable of more rpm so it would cool a bit better.
The fans are quiet, that's good, but I'd like to be able spool them up higher. I realize it would be louder then, but I would like the capability. Is there a bios to fix this?
