Nice GPU. after a little trouble

Pros: Runs most any game on ultra settings.works really well with Oculus Rift. so far i love it. runs nice and cool.

Cons: -its a bit loud. but i play with headphones so that doesn't really matter to me.
-PowerColor...

Overall Review: i initially got a "bad card", would bosd my comp when taking any sort of load. talked with PowerColor support for about 2 weeks on ways to fix it and troubleshoot it. they were helpful and responsive. but they instructed me to upgrade the bios along with instructions on how to do it. the bios update rendered my card inoperable. THEY MADE ME PAY FOR THE REPLACEMENT!!! that really got me mad. so only concern here would be PowerColor.

Outstanding GPU

Pros: Card runs very cool and quiet, I can overclock it to 1200mhz core and with the fan at 60% it stays around 72c under full load and is still quiet.

Cons: None other than it takes up 3 slots but I do not mind since the cooler is awesome.

Overall Review: To the guy complaining about temps and noise... you probably have poor case airflow and and a very cramped tower. You cant blame the cards cooing on a shoddy setup.

Unhappy

Pros: It's a 290X
temps 74c under full load for hours on end

Cons: Horrible Fan rattle, $500 card with .10 cent fans.
It is so bloody loud and im sure i will have 100% failure within a year.

The PCS+ cooling system is quite poor and i was not at all impressed and it also takes 3 full slots on my board unlike any other 290X on the market that only use 2.5 slots.

Overall Review: Buy another brand, the warranty here is also well below industry standards.

Garbage build quality
The fan are terrible and the cooler is over sized

This was your one shot to impress me powercolor, never again will i buy a product from you

Its an alright card

Pros: -Back plate for rigidity
-Cooling performance
-Great looks
-Performs very well

Cons: -size, I couldn't fit this card in many cases with the back plate the size it is.
-weight, this card is hefty!
-Coil Whine and a knocking fan, could be just an issue for my card only, but the first fan closest to the bracket knocks on a lower RPM but is fine on high RPM's.

Overall Review: My fans typically run around 1500 RPM's and the noise gets rather annoying. It is much more bearable with side panel on my case, but i like the side off of my case, for now, so it's a big reason why this doesn't have 5 eggs. Another issue was the size, I knew the size before buying one, I even measured! The downside was when i went to put it in my case, I had to do some modding to make it fit. I swapped cases and it still doesn't fit. I managed to squeeze this bad boy into an old case from the early 2000's which i tossed for a Cooler Master Ammo 533. It fits fine in there without both cages.

4/ 5

Pros: Quiet, cool and powerful. Will play almost all games on ultra settings 1080p at 60 fps.

Cons: Zero head-room for overclocking. Even a little clock boost will result in artifacts popping up everywhere.
No sticker :(
Cannot get a refund. See other thoughts.

Overall Review: A good card made by a great company but I do have buyer's remorse though. I should've bought the GTX 980 instead.

Great Card - may be too much for older MB

Pros: Runs cool, fast, and is relatively quiet (quieter than previous 6870). I game at 1920x1080 and can crank everything up to max.

Cons: I had a problem with my older 785 chip set MB where the computer would randomly restart or the driver would crash - often while just browsing or working on a spreadsheet, but also in games as well. Almost sent the card back, but came across a post where someone increased their minimum 2D GPU and memory clocks using ASUS GPU Tweak (I used GPU settings of 450mhz vs. stock 300mhz and memory at 600mhz minimum). As long as GPU Tweak was running I had absolutely no crashes or restarts. I closed GPU Tweak as a test and the computer restarted in less than 10 minutes. I was weighing an upgraded MB and getting a FX8350 - picked up the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 (better power delivery and features than the 785 board) and the FX8350 (on a NewEgg deal) and it's been completely stable without GPU Tweak.
