And the tri-x is better than the XFX but costs more. I don't think it will make a huge difference either way. Honestly I would get the power cooler triple fan one. That works about as well as the tri-x for cooling but it isn't as power hungry and it looks nice.
I think i will make a custom loop for the cards
What is your opinion

2 titan blacks wont need water cooling. I would go that route and get the reference design cooler that way the hot air gets blown out the back of your case. Or 3 780tis with reference cooler as well. The advantage of the proper cooling technique in this round of nvidia cards may be worth it over the slight drop in performance.

Edit spelling

just go tri 290s. the difference between the 290X and the PRO is 60MHz. oc the 290 60 above stock. i think the 290 Tri X is already oc'ed.

edit: i recommend the reference 290s if you are watercooling. not sure where you are from . . . but you'll find some for under $400.

You can't go wrong really. Everything you get will work. 290x/290 are best for hi-res. No doubt. Watercooling would be a huge benefit to temps and OC potential but a lot of work

And more cost lol. like 400-500 bucks

different coolers and the tri-x has a slightly higher factory clock.
The extra cost is not worth it since the XFX barely costs more than reference while it is super quiet and cool and won't throttle.

Guys what about power color pcs+
Or lcs
post #29 of 41
From my research, the only real options atm that should be considered are the tri-x and the pcs+

Asus design doesn't properly make contact w the heat pipes as mentioned earlier and the VRM temps on the xfx are garbage.

The PCS is a 2.5 design though, so fitting 3 will be tight if not even possible.

If your going to go 3 of cards regardless, id go tri-x
