In Malaysia, reference 290X when released was MYR$2399 (£445.67GBP) & now reduced to MYR$1899 (£352.78GBP), for Sapphire at least. Sapphire TRI-X R9 290 is MYR$2299 (£427.09GBP) at the moment.

No GST/VAT tax but will be soon, in 2015. I hope salary increase too.

Side note: I'm inches away from pulling the trigger on a second 290, anyone had any stutter or latency issues? How is it performance wise? biggrin.gif Never had dual gpus before. Just want to do a final check ^^
I only play few games, DiRT2, BF3 & BF4. I can tell no stutter issue with these games.

Update me to an R9 290X from Sapphire, sorry for the terrible quality, phones camera is very broken. This is a replacement for the R9 290 I sent back under RMA due to Blackscreens.

Gonna put it under an NZXT Kraken G10 with this month.

Congrats - updated thumb.gif

Will leave you with aftermarket cooling since your going to add the Kraken again. smile.gif

that seems expensive.

Why not buy a regular R9 290 for 419 and buy a waterblock? You could buy a H220 , tubing, some barbs too for that price

YUM!!!

post #13468 of 43923
Finally got my loop set up as I was running them on air until I got the new case and other junk.



I'm too lazy to get my fiancee's camera to take a proper picture, but THAR THEY BLOW!

I've gotten them to 1200/1300 with just 100mV offset as I've only been messing around with the clocks for like 30 minutes. Seems to be completely stable.

Ok, i need help. Is the stock thermal pad for the 290x stock VRM conductive?! I'm worried because i had to reuse it on my alpenfohn vrm cooler. The thermal pad kinda went all over the place and touched allot of those little things just besides vrm1. Please answer if you know.

Thx

Thermal pad is not electrically conductive.
