What is the cooler shroud made from on the Asus DirectCU II 280x? Is it plastic or metal?

So we have all heard you can CF a 7970 with a 280 right? Well how do you think one would go about loading drivers for the two different cards? Or would the 13.11 beta work for both?

I'm new to Radeon Cards, always used Nvidia, I've recently ordered 2 Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Edition GPU's, will keep a check on this area, will be a change from what I've been used too for the last 10 years.thumb.gif

I cant find much on the crossfire speed comparisons of the 280x here's a review http://www.vmodtech.com/th/article/amd-radeon-r9-280x-crossfire-performance-review/page/4 although in comparison my moderate oc on my cards got me P17666 in 3dmark11.

Installed and ran my new MSI R9 280X last night. MSI afterburner calls it a 7900 series.

Anyway, it runs cooler and quieter than the 6970 it replaced. It is also nice and fast as it appears to be slightly faster than X2 6970s were. No OC yet.

I doubt its going to out perform an overclocked 7950, which is the same price as one atm. Which kinda makes that card pointless, while they still have 7950's in stock.

Amazon finally have the iceQ turbo in stock, isn't that the best oc'er out them all? Most reviewers are doing very well with them. Bit strange why they priced it at $320-$325 though considering all the others are priced at $310.
