Actually not that many bugs, just that one and the VRM issue (which doesn't really become a problem since you need WC before you can push that much voltage thru). Hell, at least the bugs are fixable. The Tri X is still extremely good compared to the other coolers (possibly the most efficient performance vs noise 2 slot cooler available other than the Vapor X).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm running the default DD Black Edition Bios still (980/1250) But i'm running it at Tri-X clocks (1000/1300) on stock voltage.

Was just surprised with the difference (or lack of) between 13.12 and 14.4 in Valley anyways, 13.12 or 13.11 are still better for firestrike etc but for valley 14.4 seems to be the way to go.

Gigabyte Windforce 3, Sapphire Tri-X and Powercolor PCS+

Those are the three choices you have with these cards for the best cooling options.

They all cool effectively the only difference is the PCS+ is a 2.5 slot card compared to the other 2.

Honourable mention goes to the Sapphire Vapor-X (too pricy) and the XFX DD's (not quite as cool as the others)

(The first being lack of integrated backplate to cool VRMs and the usage of rare M1.5 screws which preclude the use of aftermarket backplates with the Tri X cooler)

I don't know if anybody with a Tri-X has noticed, at specific fan speeds (mine were at 47% 50% 55% 60%), you get this rhythmic rattling sound. Mine was more of a pulsating buzz. The noise goes away completely at higher or lower fan speeds of >70% or <30%. The noise also can come on when the fan quickly ramps speed (e.g. steep fan curves)
Now normally, this buzz isn't a problem if the fans are loud but it is extremely prominent due to the sheer silence of the Tri X design.

I first thought the issue was caused by the VRMs, so I opened up the cooler and placed a small square of Sekisui 5760 on each choke. The coil buzz definitely went away but the rattling remained. I next thought it may be due to shoddy fans so I opened up an RMA with Sapphire. While waiting for the RMA ticket, I happened upon this youtube video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EomL1oysVXs

So I got some garden rubber gloves from Bunnings, cut them up in to rectangles and placed them so that the fan frame would not contact the HS anymore. Not only has the rattling speed gone away, the fan transitions are now buttery smooth and the whole assembly even sounds slightly less loud at full speed.

Basically, this issue is a design flaw where there is a lack of padding between the Fan assembly and the HS assembly leading to resonance of the metal.

Thought would be worth posting for anyone with a Tri-X, try this mod and the VRM mod before RMAing the card.

my r9 290 tri x used to have that problem.. im not sure what id done but i think i cleaned the middle fan and tighten the screw.
