ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Incredible performance. I was very happy with the card over all. I set the fan limits using the asus software and it kept it nice and cool. Always below 80c.

Cons: Stopped working after being installed for two weeks. The six pin power port has a short in it that keeps my computer from attempting to start up at all. Newegg is charging me return shipping even though I've had it less than a month.

Other Thoughts: If my replacement works well I will be very happy with it. I'm disappointed in newegg charging for return shipping on defective products though.

ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs cool and the software asus provides is great. I set a custom fan profile so I gradually cranks up to 100% fan at 80 degrees and it usually maxes around 63 degrees at approximately 60% fan. Runs far cooler than I was expecting. I had read some negative reviews on toms hardware where they took off the heatsink and see that it makes poor contact, but I've been very impressed with my results. Fan is noticeable at 60% and higher, but not annoying. I've been maxing everything out with no problems. I picked this up just recently when it was $650. I was going to get the regular 290, but I had $100 in gift cards and I'm glad I got this model.

Cons: The price is still well above MSRP which is too bad. It would also be nice if the used similar cooler to the sapphires.

Other Thoughts: I'm over all very happy with the purchase.

OCZ Solid 3 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome deal. Good Speeds. 06/11/2012

This review is from: OCZ Solid 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC SLD3-25SAT3-120G

Pros: Great price. Hard to argue with less than $1/GB. Installed in an older laptop that lacks the newer sata 3 so my numbers are no where near the max of this drive I'm sure. In my laptop I'm maxing at about 255MB write and 280MB read per sec. Over all I am impressed with the drive so far and look forward to benching it on sata 3.

Cons: Shipped in cheap plastic. Lacks any accessories like a 3.5 bay converter or any screws. No big deals. So far so good but will post back if the drive fails on me.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend buying to anyone looking for a good deal.
