**** that company.
Tired of this situation so considering the many issues with the R9 280X series, I went online and looked at review for another card. My choice got narrowed down to R9 280X Vapor-X or GTX 770 DirectCU II OC.
Great reviews on this card, and a store had some, so I bought an ASUS GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II OC today.
Works fine with everything, 25min Furmark, 79°c, no problem.
ps : The guy from the shop told me they have 3 out of their 5 R9 280X Toxic card RMA'ed. Also that one of his friends bought 4, and out of those 4, 2 were faulty. But those who worked, worked really well.
