post #14981 of 25887
The OC versions of the 290 and 290x are great but with their inflated prices, you can spend a bit more and get a 780 Ti OC. After testing almost a dozen cards in the past few months, I stand by my recommendation of a 780 Ti OC Tri-Cooler for big budgets or a MSI 770 OC for lower budgets. The 770 OC ran BF4 like a dream at 1080p...

PS -- Anyone running BF4, turn off MSAA and use LOW on post processing AA. It looks AWESOME and there is no performance hit. thumb.gif

Thanks for this!

Honestly, is it even worth doing or does it not make much difference in image quality in games?

Well like I said Tri-X is a great cooler too, but even in that review the PCS+ in performance bios returns the best temps. Keep in mind Tri-X has identical fan curves in both bios settings which are more aggressively set than the PCS+ quiet mode fan curve and on par with the PCS+ performance bios fan curve.

Better still, switching to performance mode limited the under-load temperature to a very impressive 68ºC - the lowest we've seen on any R9 290X.
http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/66625-powercolor-radeon-r9-290x-pcs/?page=10

Anyway not to go too far adrift but both are great coolers, here is how my gaming load temps look like with these two cards crossfired, in a silenced Define R4 case with case fans undervolted at 700-800rpm:


Air cooled crossfire... just look at those temps after playing Far Cry 3 all night. I've never heard of anyone getting temps like this with an air cooled crossfire setup in a silent case.

I think the more interesting thing about those new monitors isn't the 4k, it's the fact it's a A-HVA panel instead of all the AH-IPS and PLS panels in all the current Korean 27" monitors.

If they had a glossy model, I would be the guinea pig on it. My glossy Qnix looks so good after calibration, I don't think anything out there can beat it.. especially at 110hz.. /first world problems

I totally agree with you on "GLOSSY" thumb.gif
Maybe you missed my acknowledgement on [THIS] page/post # 14934

IF this came in a "Glossy" @ that price ... I'd buy it today thumb.gif
A-HVA Panel! / True 10bit board-1.07B / 4ms GtoG 120Hz overclocking ... @$370 hard to pass up wink.gif

Hey Watagump, can you expand on your reason why you would think the QX2710 "Glossy" from Amazon/Bizaroo is not a true glossy panel or did I miss read your comments? ... I'm suspicious also with unfamiliar suppliers (ea Bizaroo?) but I don't have any direct proof ... if it were tempered glass, something I certainly don't want, then they'd have to list it as such ... not as glossy ... there are so many misconceptions with tempered glass being a true glossy it's frustrating.
