No whine since purchase date. This will vary and I wonder if this isn't just a shoddy batch of soldered boards.
BF3 and BF4 beta have been amazing so far. I've had no issues whatsoever when gaming or working with graphics intensive programs.
Skyrim had some issues, but that was fixed changing a few config. entries. (heavily modded Skyrim so this really is just information not to be taken as a knock on the 7990).
Overall price is great for the card. $649 with games. I wouldn't have bought this card with the problems it had, but the drivers are fixing issues. We get a tad focused on the benchmarks and I believe price/performance value is being overlooked.
Can you tell me the exact model that you bought please?
Any temperature problems?
Oh I'm really hoping I get a card that doesn't whine lol ...
Isn't Skyrim known to not play nice with CF? I'm not really concerned about that, there are always games that run better on AMD or nVidia hardware, nothing new here.
But now that all consoles have AMD hardware and the new Mantle API is coming, more and more games might run better on AMD hardware, who knows.
I got mine for $550 after MiR crazy good value like you said.
