Pros: Looks great, according to manufacturer website this thing has a max cooling TDP of 230W !!! on AIR. Im thinking of getting this sometime in the future as my H60 just cant keep up with my fx8350 oc'd. I think 230w tdp cooling would be far superior than most setups.
Cons: n/aREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great, forget when i bought this but it's been a few months at least. Still rocking and my cpu (fx 8350) bottlenecks this thing about 80% of the time.
Other Thoughts: Over clocks alright, mines litecoin at about 400 kh/s, dark coin at about 2 mh/s. Decided to get a used Reference xfx r9 290a enfc for 280 to the door. For mining darkcoin and an upgrade for when i play games. This 290 should unlock to a 290x witha bios flash, we'll see when i get it.
Anyways I highly recommend this card unless you can spare the extra 100 and are willing to buy used, then go big or go home :)
This review is from: XFX R9290AENFC Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 CrossFireX Support Video Card
Pros: To my understanding most if not all of these cards come with proper hardware to be flashed with the XFX r9 290x firmware and unlock the extra shaders. I found a with a little effort that has a checker to determine if your card will work correctly or not. I just picked up a used one for 270 bucks, (was likely used to mine coins) but i trust it will work and if it doesnt unlock, oh well i have a 290 :DDD we'll see. With the increase of ASIC miners these will likely be up for sale used ( like mine) i'll update when I attempt to flash. Good luck!
Cons: i do not have it in my hands yet :/READ FULL REVIEW
