Stock cooling:
MSI 290
XFX 290
Sapphire 290

1.32v before droop should be fine. Your VRM temps don't seem bad either. Keep them under 85c to be safe, although they can technically go over 100c.
I think, I honestly can't stand MSI AB so I stick with GPUTweak or Precision X.
I like AB because they have the fan control profiles tho

GPUTweak also has fan profiles.

GPUTweak, MSI AB, and Precision X are all based on the same software I believe (RivaTuner) so they all run similarly. The main differences are the skins, and that GPUTweak allows much more voltage.

I saw earlier you didn't get an unlocker out of all of those. That sucks did you pay over MSRP for all of them too ?

That's awesome, I didn't know GPUTweak has the custom fan profiles!

Nah only the XFX

Sapphire + BF4 = $395 shipped
MSI = $399 shipped
XFX = $458 shipped (got it a week earlier cause newegg shipping fiasco)

Was very disappointed not one unlocked though

I did notice a disparity between included accessories of the manufacturers

Sapphire had no covers on the display ports however did come with power adapters, displayport adapter, and a HDMI cable plus a BF4 key

Oh so you ordered them before the price gouge then I assume.

Did you buy from three brands hoping to get atleast 1-2 unlockers I assume?

Are you going to be selling some/all of them due to not unlocking or you gonna run tri-xfire or some such? just curious.

Currently I'm mining on them, making 1 LTC a day I will be adding the 7950 to the mining when I get my pcie risers

3.67Mh/s with 2 290Xs? How are you getting 1.8Mh/s+ per card? 290X are around 850-950Khs.
