  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 290X is a beast and Most power in your hands for the Price. The Heat-sink is a classic but remember it pushes all hot air out of your case. 80%Max fan speed will Be bearable for a 8Hr+ gaming session. 80c is Good temp for the Health of the card. Mantel is a Positive. Overclock on Water is Positive. Mining Speed is a Positive. 500ish is a positive.

Cons: We all know Air cooling a thing of the past.

Other Thoughts: Replace 7970 Dual X Cooler and the 290X is Cooler in case.
Water is ideal.

PowerColor PCS+ AX7970 3GBD5-2DHPPV Radeon HD 7970 VORTEXII 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Doing weeks of research reading benchmark and watching review vid.
I know my stuff. Factory overlock,PCS-2, vortex 2, heat plate attach and can be removed. I know there be other reviews about dead cards. I put my card in woth Beta Drivers on my Win 7 Rig and had no problems. The Two free games I got within minutes,Thanks AMD. And this card is future proof. With the crossfire benchmark compete with Titan and 7970 cost less. Heat not an issue idle 39c full load 69c. All good and noise at 100% fan was not like my old 6970.

Cons: Only one con. Almost made me take away one egg is that the card almost one year old. And the 8970 is around the corner. But info from the Web say we will not see the 8970 end of the year or next. And I'm sure it will not come out with the two best games of the year. Also the crossfire potential is awesome.
Nuff said.

Other Thoughts: Cool box and I got it with bonus 30 dollar rebate. Two free games.
Free shipping.
