I ran two Devil 13 290x cards in quad fire and never experienced any coil whine. Maybe I got lucky?

This 390x2 seems to be locked at 77C whereas the 290x2 was hitting 85C+
Having had two of those cards in the past, I can tell you that most cases of throttling were from people packing these enormous cards in cases with poor airflow. I 100% agree that the 290x version needed more work on the cooler, but neither of my Devil cards while in quad fire on an EATX board throttled at stock clocks unless the cards were pushed with over clocking or very strenuous gaming sessions at 4k. Keep in mind that 85c is still almost 10c cooler than the throttling point and the reference single gpu cards.

I really want to point out that 16 PCI-e lanes would be a detriment to a single twin card. Well, unless you want a skylake build, which I really think only makes sense in ITX builds. Or a 5820k build, which works great with the SSD's having 28 lanes.
This Devil 13 would pack a wallop for an ITX case. That card must be long, but there's a CM elite case that might work. The triple slot and demanding PSU would be tricky.
IIRC, Devil cards never supported quadfire. Is this true here? Time to look...
