post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i am decding to go for tri fire r290 sapphire gpus / with my 3930k msi big bang xpower 2 mobo etc .but reading on the forums and others i have noticed a lot of ppl having issues in scaling and other issues ..

got scared there ...the r290 / r290x woop ass on a titan even that was music to my ears , so i need some help from you guys ...are the driver support now better - upgrading from tri gtx 760 gigabyte gpus .and i want the best ..

not much of a diff in the r290 and r290x except for the shaders and i am sure with a slight oc the r290 can touch the r290x even ...

no air cooling only --is there a problem with the card or the drivers --why are so many complaining about black screen and over heating issues etc --does the temperature come down if you increase the fan speed --i dont mind increasing the fan speed as long as the temps stay down and it works as specified .

compared to the ones not having any black screen issues . . . they are relatively few. they are new, so we are still finding bugs. i for one haven't had any issue.

and, yes, the thing gets hot with the reference cooler. that's a given. with three, i would wait for the non reference to come out. my 290 is watercooled . . .



sorry, i don't use furmark.
