Oh, I thought it was XFX's non-reference design, still nice looking.

I want to nominate my 290 rig for "UGLIEST 290 RIG"

AIO cooler. Custom cut heat sinks for VRM and RAM. (read hack saw massacre)





We need an official ugly 290 forum. Too bad I had to do this because of the terrible stock heat sink. But whatever. Its under 50c now all the time. VRM's included. Look at those hideous heat sinks... lol... that's just terrible.

Hey, at least it works and doesn't sound like a jet engine anymore.

The double dispensations look pretty but I have heard XFX kinda has crappy quality most of the time?

The only XFX I had was a XFX 6990 but that broke down after a half year and that is how I got a 680.

The AMD 6000 series cards with the DD cooler where decent

The AMD 7000 series cards with the XFX DD cooler on the hand was an epic fail

Dont know about the AMD 200 series models with the XFX DD cooler but they cant be worse then the last gen

No. My stock heat sink is still untouched. I put it back in the box in case I ever have to RMA.

The coolers are all old CPU coolers that I cut down to fit over the VRM's and RAM sections. Plus a few small stick ons for a few of the RAM modules.

Looks like total crap, but its working great. My temps are very good. Under 50c now even while mining at 100%. The AOI is a Corsair H80 with push/pull fans.

My 7970ghz edition DD cooler sucked. I mean, it did decent considering it was a pretty good overclock on the gpu but still, it struggled even at 100% fan speed and it was far from quiet. rolleyes.gif
