5 out of 5 eggs Update to previous sporadic coil whine 04/14/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

Pros: Just an FYI. I've updated PSU to Seasonic 650W from 6 years old Antec 850W PSU.

The sporadic coil whine that I had experienced during certain scenes is gone.

Great Card - still runs fine.

Cons: None

SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solidly built.
Very quiet - can't pass 70˚C during Furmark.

I use single monitor 2650x1440. Cat 14.2 beta 3

Cons: Coil whine during specific display scenarios, not too often thankfully.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from 5850 - this shows how "often" I upgrade the GPU.

I wanted to go with after-market 290. I don't do water cooling. This card has great temps and card is very quiet.

Hopefully, it'll last another 5 years like my 5850 has lasted.

As with most cards like that, watch out for PSU requirements and room in your case. This particular card is a foot long like subway sandwich.
