SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361SR 4GB GDDR5 Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good Card 02/27/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361SR 4GB GDDR5 Video Card

Pros: Great Bang for the buck ( It was $500 with BF4 around Cyber Monday, but the market has changed now)
Runs games well very.
Great for mining litecoins too.
Reference Design

Cons: Unbelievably Loud if you set to uber mode and use the stock cooling solution. IMO Fan settings should be higher out of the box on normal setting anyways, but that's an easy change in the driver settings.

Mine came with elpida memory instead of hynix.
Reference Design

Other Thoughts: This card was great bang for the buck when it first came out. Hopefully prices will return to normal. I do not have coil whine as others do.

Reference design is a huge plus if you are going to watercool or use a modified bios for mining.

If you have no intention to do either of those things then a non-reference cooler will cool better and quieter.

After reading initial reviews, I knew the card would be loud. Reference cards are the easiest to water-cool and I knew I would be getting a block for it before I considered purchasing.

Still playing with mining settings but the card is now Silent and averages 980Khs even though it only has elpida memory. BF4 was running great with beta mantle drivers for me.
