I upgraded from a GTX 670, it was definitely worth it. I hope 290 prices drop so I can CF already.

I had 7970 before 290, through all my gaming and benchmarks 290 for me was overall around 50% better. So up to you to decide. (I also bought mine when it was only $399 + 10% discount so $360 total)

New 290 owner here. I just made the transition from a GTX 690 and have two immediate thoughts.

1. Jesus this thing runs hot, 95C temp target by default that reaches that temp in a hurry with any game I play.
2. Jesus this thing is loud. Default 45% fan profile sounds like a box fan as compared to my 690, which honestly I could almost never hear.

Aside from water is there anything that can be done to alleviate either of these issues even a little? Pic of the internals now, planning on doing true water in the future so I have the room now.

OP, add me to the list.

Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X
Pictures of the new card (Click to show)






More proof (Click to show)


Card does not unlock (F801).

Haven't started overclocking yet but: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7822192

Stock seems to be 1000/1300mhz. Haven't seen the card pass 55C yet running Valley and 3dmark11.

Time to pump the voltage and raise the clocks.

EDIT: If it wasn't apparent, this card has Hynix RAM, just like the other Tri-X we've seen.

If you could 'edit' and add a GPU-Z link with OCN name or screen shot with GPU-Z validation tab open with OCN name showing would be great. In the meantime --- Congrats - added thumb.gif

It was just a preliminary test, I stopped it after few seconds to check temperatures.
GPU Core Clock [MHz] , GPU Memory Clock [MHz] , GPU Temperature [°C] , Fan Speed (%) [%] , Fan Speed (RPM) [RPM] , GPU Load [%] , Memory Usage (Dedicated) [MB] , Memory Usage (Dynamic) [MB] , 12V [V] , VDDC [V] , VDDCI [V] , VDDC Current In [A] , VDDC Current Out [A] , VDDC Power In [W] , VDDC Power Out [W] , VRM Temperature 1 [°C] , VRM Temperature 2 [°C] ,
1200.0 , 1450.0 , 71.0 , - , - , 100 , 1256 , 11.50 , 1.180 , 1.000 , 28.3 , 213.5 , 327.0 , 234.5 , 104 , 49 ,

Those are the datas from the GPU-Z log :\ 1.2v effective (according to the programm but I was +0.100mV)... I don't know, I used this guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/1437634/installation-guide-tips-of-rev-2-icy-vision-on-r9-290x/0_50, but instead of 6 small VRM heatsinks I used 5 since one wasn't really in contact with much surface.. I'm unmounting again this ***** to see what's wrong, brb :\

CF does not appeal me anymore. Most of the time i play games i dont need CF and those games that CF might see gain can still be played very well with one GPU and really the game is not worth the second card price.
