Pros: I had bad experience with first card I bought and needed to complete an RMA with PowerColor. The RMA went very smooth and suprisingly fast. In total it took about 10 days round trip to get a good card. Thanks Raymond! Oh and I got my rebate check in 31 days. Kudos to PowerColor!
SO, I decided to buy another one of these PowerColor R9 290's. It works great. Overall, very happy with PowerColor.
Cons: -R9 290's in crossfire do run hot but, that was expected
-These card need a quality power supply, 750 W or above
Pros: -GTX 780 and sometimes even GTX 780Ti levels of performance. All of this for a substantially lower price point than the aforementioned cards
Cons: - Having the exact same problem as the other reviewers
-This card would constantly crash to black or white screen while gaming; hard-locking my system
- Hot and noisy for the brief periods that I was able to play games
- Currently, in the RMA Process with Powercolor. hopefully that will go smoothly
Other Thoughts: Took a chance with Powercolor despite the bad reviews on this specific card. If I end up with a quality working R9 290 from them I will be happy but, right now I'm really regretting my purchaseREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BOXDX79SI LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Supposedly stable, efficient, and easily overclockable. Oh and gives good reviews.
Cons: DOES NOT support Ivy Bridge-E processors; because Intel will not release a updated BIOS to support their own CPU's. Pure laziness on Intel. Thank goodness they are getting out of the motherboard business.READ FULL REVIEW
