I am sure even if I don't end up keeping it, someone here can benefit from a low price.


Lawson, no worries mate. Just wanted to offer. I just wondered if I set the value to $50, if that would help tongue.gif

if you get it in dude - that would be epic - I will be grateful if you could test the HDMI Xbox/PS3 compatibility too smile.gif

The first one will not do the job. HDMI isn't compatible with dual link DVI, so you won't be able to output 2560x1440@60hz. The most that can be realistically expected is 2560x1440@30hz, via a custom resolution in Windows. You may be able to push beyond that, but don't get your hopes up.

Thanks for the answer dude.

http://www.powercolor.com/Global/products_features.asp?id=523#Specification

Edit:- i have just found a review which clams these dimensions...if true these will in my case biggrin.gif

The Good: This is maybe the best cooler ever put on a high end gpu. There are heatsinks for the vrms, a thermal pad over the memory, two massive heatsinks over the length of the card, and a bunch of copper pipes. My jaw constantly drops over the temps I'm getting. With a beefy overclock I can keep core and both vrms under 70c!! That's just sick. At stock clocks I can game and core and vrms will be around 50c. That's borderline water cooling level heat dispersion. Overclocking is silicon lottery but my card can hit 1230 core and 1700 vram.

The Squirrelly: Huge card. The listed specs are wrong, it's 294mm long and 52mm thick. Fans are loud from 60% on up and the temps I note above are with fans at 60-80%. But you can run the fans at a very quiet 50% at stock clocks.
Pro Tip: If you can deal with the size and fans that are on the loud side, this is the best custom 290.

That's my review biggrin.gif. At superbiiz where I bought my card. But yeah the dimensions I stated are the actual ones, not only do I have the card I measured it to help someone here determine whether it would fit in his Define R3. I actually bought the card because of its (wrong) listed dimensions and I was bummed out when I saw the actual size but it clears my hdd cage by 2mm. But the temps are so godlike I don't mind the size at all. At stock everything is sub-60c. With a mild overclock, low 60s. Maxed out, low to mid 70s. If anyone has ever heard of a powerful gpu that stays this cool, let me know, because to me this is completely unprecedented. And all this is is a Define R4 with under volted Noctuas running at 700-800rpm. I've settled on 1140 core 1500 mem, after a night of gaming temps will be 60c core, 65c vrm1, 50c vrm2. Fan will max at 54-57%. Whole case is running silently. Just, absurdly wonderful.

Tri-X is almost as good though. Temps are sub-70c across the board as top card in crossfire, albeit with fans spinning faster.

All of it looks gorgeous on my qnix 2710. Tho I might have to switch to this new display and use this screen as my secondary.

Look at a few more of his review. He had VRM issues, returned it for a Tri X.

Oh that was your review..very good indeed and thanks for the measurements..i am very much looking forward to mine arriving..the only thing that maybe of a concern to me is that i really will be putting its cooling to the test as i am getting 2 of them to run in crossfire and the top one will ONLY be millimetres above the bottom one! .lol..also what the hell is bit-coin or mining?...are they some sort game?

Lawson,

This is terrible. What are we Geforce people going to do if you go to the dark side with AMD? Clearly you are going to just have to run two systems, one of each for testing purposes. rolleyes.gif

All kidding aside let us know how that runs in comparison to what you have now. If you have time, run some fps tests now and then when you get the new cards for comparison. This will make you feel better about the purchase and give us some insight into potential upgrades. biggrin.gif

We appreciate you for what you have done for this forum. Helps a lot.

He is using the QNIX, and has gotten very luck to be able to run at that rez. Ive tried and failed. However another member allowed nvidia control panel to set the timings automatically which allowed him to get "4k" at 30hz
post #15079 of 25923
Wouldn't that mean that it's not actually at 4k and still @ 1440p... There are still only 2560 x 1440 pixels right? So the quality wouldn't actually change rather than just be harder on the GPU. Maybe I'm going crazy and I'm completely wrong. teaching.gif
post #15080 of 25923
Would be "upscaling" OR "virtual 4K" - pretty much what was described in the ebay listing for the "new" QNIX here:
