SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 Fury DirectX 12 100379SR 4GB 4096-Bit HBM PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support TRI-X (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -FAST!

I am able to run Witcher 3 max quality (including Hairworks) over 60fps constantly with Win10 and 15.7.1 at 1080p.

Cons: -Limited over-clock but I'm hearing that could change in the fear future.
-Huge card. Make sure you have space.

Other Thoughts: -Have a good power supply. This needs two 8 pin connectors. I couldn't skimp with molex converters like I could with a 290 VaporX.
-This card at load is quieter than a 980 Ti iChill X3 idle and about the same temps.
-This trades blows stock vs stock 980 TI with latest Win10 drivers. Overclocking a 980 TI will come out on top but that's because Fury OC is limited til they unlock voltage. For stock speeds the Fury gives a 980 TI performance for cheaper.

5 out of 5 eggs Best thermal paste money can buy 04/03/2015

This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: I've been using this stuff for 5 years. Can't go wrong with it. Best temps I've ever seen.

Cons: You have to wait for material to cure. Not a big negative in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Contrary to popular rumor this material is not electrically conductive. I've run a write between a battery and a lamp with my meter showing 0 ohms.

That material is capacitive so don't splatter it all over you mobo but I'd be more worried about dust than this stuff.

XFX Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9-290X-8DFD 8GB 512-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Double Dissipation Edition
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 8GB RAM, insanely fast, great for 4K

Cons: Expensive.
Needs a good power supply.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from the 980 GB to this. The image quality was noticeably better than my 980. At 4K it trades blows with my old 980 but when you start putting eye candy onto the mix the 290X turns out about 10-30% faster. Might be the 8GB.
