Pros: The card is cool and very quiet Stays in the low 80's. Fans can also be adjusted. Nice design for the card.
Cons: So before I had this card i owned the xfx 7970 gpu. And let me say that going to the r9 290x is not a big upgrade. Considering how much I paid for this thing.
I get max of maybe 5 -8 fps tops in most of the games i play. I did oc it slightly and it raised it probably anywhere from 2 to 4 frames at best!!
My resolution is the ultra wide display @ 2560 x 1080
My Pc Specs are:
i5 2500k @ 4.7
8 gis ram corsair vengence @1600 mhz
850 watt corsair psu
360 corsair SSD
With that being said I play mostly MMO games, Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy 14 etc. And a little battlefield
In battlefield certain parts still dip in the low 50's but maintain a consistant 80 fps. But thats on HIGH settings. Ultra Im actually affraid to try it...becuase I know i will be disappointed.
In the mmo games I still dip down to 14 - 24 fps sometimes. And its not the cpu becuase it never goes above 70% max on cpu. But i get 100% max consistant on my gpu. Which is very poor. For that price I dont want it to go bellow 60 fps ever! I uninstalled drivers and everything I can think of same results. I am this close to RMA the product and get the GTX 780 ti. The only reason im keeping it, I mean the only reason i still have this thing, is because im waiting to see what this mantle technology is going to do for future gaming. If its a bust I will be switching over too nvidia..............
Other Thoughts: If you have an older GPU its worth the upgrade. But If you have GTX 680, 770, xfx 7970 or something similar to that......It may not be worth the cost for an extra 5 to 8 fps.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: absolutely none!!!!
Cons: This is not an easy install what so ever. The directions are poorly written & unclear. It took me about 2 days to get the product installed. Then when i finally got it installed.....the thing didn't even work bad pump. My card went all the way up past 100c and gave the BSOD!!!!!!!
I didn't even bother contacting Newegg or Artic about this, too tired and frustrated with it. I dont want anymore headaches with it. As soon as I bought this, the product it got discontinued anyway so there you have it.
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm
Pros: Ive got the i5 2500k oc @ 4.7. Running cool and quiet
temps at 68c And stable while running prime 95 for hour. And during hours of regular gaming temp doesn't go about 53c!!!!
Cons: Not really a con but the fans were noisey for me but i also have OCD. I replaced the top fans with the Noctua NF-A14 FLX 140mm and runs alot quieter I cant hear it running at all even at max.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this product highly!READ FULL REVIEW
