XFX Black Edition Double D R9-280X-TDBD Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This video card started off great, I could run all games on max settings without any issues.

Cons: Now the bad, after 8 months the card started having issues.

-Display flickering on both primary and secondary monitors (at least once an hour)
-Both screen will display a biege screen with lines coming down them, audio will still come out of speakers/headphones but system will be unresponsive, have to perform a hard shutdown.
-After rebooting the Windows logo on the PRIMARY monitor will be artifacting and not display correctly
-After both monitors turn off after 15 minutes, when I wake them back up, only the primary displays my desktop. The secondary monitor will also wake up, but the screen will be black; the display on the primary monitor will then flicker constantly unless I reboot the machine.


Below are the steps I have taken to troubleshoot the issue.

-Reinstalled Windows on a brand new hard drive
-Uninstalled existing driver version 14.10.1006-140417a-171099C and upgraded to the latest version 14.23
-Removed and upgraded sound card
-Ran memtest on every single stick of memory seperatly for 12 hours (no errors)

I contacted XFX Support and they said to update the BIOS for the flickering issues.

After performing the BIOS upgrade my video card is USELESS. I cannot play ANY games at all. As soon as the game starts, both monitors go black, my system freezes up and is unresponsive and I'm forced to perform a hard shutdown of the system.

Another thing that sucks is that when XFX support updates your support ticket, you don't get any notification at all, you have to manually check up/follow up on it.

Razer Vespula Dual-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat - Speed and Control
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great mouse pad and I love the added wrist pad. The wrist pad gives the support for those long sessions of gaming or just sitting in front of the PC. I live by all Razer products and this mouse mat + wrist pad is great.

Cons: None

Western Digital Black WD6402AAEX 640GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Packaging was perfect.

Cons: Drive must have somehow slipped past the testing they do on these drives. Within 4 hours of using, the drive starting acting up. Ran a diag test; 140 bad sectors on the drive.

Other Thoughts: Settings up RMA with WD was a snap, sending it back to get replaced.
