PowerColor PCS+ AXR9 290X 8GBD5-PPDHE Radeon R9 290X 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have owned a few different custom 290x series graphics cards and the PCS+ series has the coolest temps, even in crossfire the top card never goes above 82C running maxed out at 4K resolutions. This is great for a crossfire configuration at 4K. A single card temps are about 68-70C. The 8GB version is running great. About a 10-15% performance improvement when benching at 4K resolutions. Overclocking my crossfire setup was very good. 1125 core and 1600 (6400 Effective) memory. Very Happy indeed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: At 429.99. Reasonable price for the 8GB version. About $50-$60 less than the competition. I purchased two. They seem the sell out quick.

ADATA XPG Z1 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4-17000) Desktop Memory Model AX4U2133W8G13-QRZ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This memory is just excellent. Nice looking in my windowed case. XMP operates fine. Timings are CL13-13-13-32. Lowest CL right now. Here's what so great about this memory set, Overclocking. Bumped the Memory controller +100mv. Bumped up memory voltage from 1.2V to 1.35V(Like the higher speed sets) and now running 2400 speed with 13-13-13-32 timings.

Cons: Price. But, I knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: Tempting to try 2666 speed.

HIS H295LF8G4M Radeon R9 295x2 8GB 1024 (512 x 2)-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very solid build. Super cool running GPU's due to water cooling of course. Two slot. Radiator fit perfectly in my case. Needed the 295x2 to game using a 4K monitor. Great job AMD,

Cons: Price. This is currently the fastest single card solution. You must pay for the best. I did not receive the 3 free games.

Other Thoughts: Make sure and purchase a high quality 1000W+ PSU to feed this beast.
