IANAL but from what I understand, ownership of "sample" is normally the original manufacturer, and the recipient does not have the rights to resell. That is why most sample has a big label "NOT FOR RESALE". I would advise against buying any test or prototyping samples from any third party.

So Amazon just notified me that my Sapphire 290 Tri-X will be delivered March 3. Price is $499. I can't decide whether to cancel this order. I have a Powercolor PCS+ 290 right now and I love it. This is imho the best cooler ever. I have never seen temps this good on an air cooled high end gpu. I know the Tri-X is highly rated but I strongly doubt it performs like this card. Check out an evening of Far Cry 3 at 1170 core 1500 mem:



Temps below 70c across the board at 1170/1500 overclock, ambient ~22. Tell me that's not fabulous for an air cooled 290. Will the Tri-X get me cooling like this? I have a hard time believing that. I've used Sapphires before. They do great at stock clocks, amazing if you undervolt, but the moment you overclock to any degree vrm1 hits high 80s.

So I'm debating whether to cancel this order and get another PCS+.

One advantage of the Tri-X is that it's 38mm, vs the 52mm of the PCS+. So more space between cards for airflow if I put the Tri-X in the upper slot. The PCS+ has gone up in price so it's $550 now. But in addition to the cooling it's got a metal shroud and backplate, vs the Tri-X plastic shroud and no backplate. The Tri-X is 1022g. I worry about sag.

Will I run into any problems if I use different brand cards in xfire? I know it's possible, but you guys all seem to use the same brand card in your xfire setups.

Gah dunno what to do. Have to decide pretty soon obviously, it's going to ship Friday I think. What would you do? Tri-X for $499, or cancel it and pay $50 extra for another PCS+?

So the new 14.2 drivers seem really nice for Battlefield 4, terrible for 3 though. Anyone else finding that? Just logged in to do some dogfights and it's close to unplayable.

Both 3 and 4 run amazing on 14.2 here. No issues with 3 at all. I played a bit of Metro on 3 to compare it to Metro on 4 and had no issues. Also, i miss grand bazaar as it was my favorite map so olayed that as well, no issues.

feel like such a loser always on the losing end redface.gif

overpaid by 320$ since i got 4x dcIIoc @ 730$

they lowered the price just hours after i placed order

what are the chances of getting credited the 320$ ?
