Both cards do not unlock and they both have Elphida ram so thats confirmed, the top card is on average 10c hotter than the bottom one and thats with 30c ambients......
That's expected with a CF setup, as one card is credit the other preheated air. You have 30 degree ambients? Are you sure, that's very very hi

gh 8-12 degrees higher than most peoples'. What are the cards idling at? Do you have a side fan feeding these cards cool air?
Hah. Well if you have the money, go for it. The ti is plain better than the 290x. Personally I think the 290 is far superior to the 290x - it's only 3/4% slower clock or clock and get it's a lot cheaper. Much better value IMO.
If I were in the market for a 290x, I'd probably just grab a 780 Lightning or a ti.
Then again, if you have the money and simply want to spend it, go for it
