R9 290 reference Cooler in silent mode

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I can find used reference R9 290 in pretty decent prices and was wondering what is your personal experience with the cooler. I have read that in full speed its a screamer, however I intend to use the card in silent mode and not overclock. I currently have a windforce card which is very very silent especially in idle mode. Any comments?

thx

I have an xfx R9 290be reference and an xfx R9 290be double dissipation card in crossfire/eyefinity, and honestly in the enclosed case they are not that loud. I can usually hear my CPU fans for the water cooling over the video cards unless I am playing a really graphic intensive game maxxed out and the fans spin up too cool the cards down.
The double dissipation card is a little cooler on average then the reference card, so I use the reference card as the second card in crossfire in doing so I have never had a problem with it. Even with it being this close to the power supply it does not have any problems.
