it s really lottery but if the card does oc great yeah the matrix is better suited to handle the higher clock then a dcii but it doesn't mean it will oc better. like said above it huge , take 3 slot and it s 50% wider then normal cards , plus the price so yeah it has a lot of drawback too... it s rational to go for it , you buy it because you just want one ,....
by bundle i mean the stuff that come with it , you get a nice mousepad , a remplacement rad for ln2 pot or chips only wc block , nice backplate the led lighting on the side , the fan control on the card etc etc , i meant you pay more for sure but you do get more on your card , load line calibration , vrm frequency and these kind of settings

The Sapphire R9 280X Toxic, has totally sold out everywhere, I can get the Asus Matrix R9 280X easily enough, have the power to run both, but I really do prefer the Sapphire version by far, only takes up 2 slots and doesn't look ugly, and a bit cheaper, with a better out of the box factory oc, guess I'll have to wait another 3 weeks, maybe until January, by the time it's freely available again.
