Pros: runs cool in my nzxt tempest 210 mid tower case
i can have the fans up to 67% and barly hear the card. you are able to overclock with the software but i dont bother because there isnt a need to. its fast enough at stock it idles at 350mhz and jumps to 900Mhz-1ghz depending on game. you cant go wrong with this card.

Cons: its really big card. Bigger then i thought it was it almost didn"t fit in my case. it is 1/2 a centameter from touch the cables on the back of my ssd drive. i have a modular psu i had to add my spare sata power cable do to the size of this card. be warned if you have a mid tower case make sure it will fit before you buy this card.

Other Thoughts: Definitely 1 of the best amd aftermarket brand gpu i have ever owned. I have owned gigabyte and powercolor amd gpu's. This card is buy far the best and my favorite so far. I got this one on sale for $480 with 3 free games deducted from from the actual price of the card. People complain about the 3 free games. But amd has to pay the game companys for the games so they deduct it from the price of the card so i actually paid $330 for this card when this is originally a $596 gpu. So you are getting the games for free. Because you are only paying for the card and amd is paying for the games.

2 out of 5 eggs games 06/05/2014

This review is from: GIFT AMD GOLD 3 GAMES 2014

Pros: got 3 free games with my 290x

Cons: disapointed with the vary small selection, the choices for the games was really easy for me to make since there were only five reasonable games for me to chose out of my preference. they had about 20 games to choose from but the only relistic choices were theif, hitman absolution, sleeping dogs and darksider 1/2, my friend danial was with me and he is a heavy gamer he has pc, xbox 1 and ps4 and has owned ps2/ps3 and original xbox/xbox360 and keeps up to date with all the good games on ign and other sites for the past 11 years. he agreed with me. the rest of the games were random unkown questionable titles. but who knows by the time i wright this review maby they will have better games to choose from

Other Thoughts: i chose between this and 780 ti and in the end chose 290x because of the 3 free games but was disaponted with the selection of game titles. since i owed my friend for buying me a game i gave him hitman absolution and kept thief, and darksiders 2. i have only ever bought amd gpus, i have never owned a navida gpu so the 780 ti was tempting when i read about 290x heat issues. but the free games was the deciding factor for me.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
