Its also a good way to minimize liability. An air cooler would have not coped with the amount of heat these things generate. A cls gives you a moderate advantage in cooling while minimizing the dangers of a diy custom wc setup. Its also a nice step forward towards oem wc (not aib MSI or EVGA) but its not practical tbh when you wanna throw in more then one card.

They all should have them. I know one xfx card that didn't have any heatsinks/plates on the vrm and it was a hot to run. I think they revised it eventually w/ heatsinks. Heatsinks increase surface area for better cooling. My Lightning's stock cooler has heatplates for the vram and vrm. Same idea though smile.gif

my old 7970's do not have them...

comparison of my old vs new. a lot different everything but gpu .. even memory is different manufacturer

The bottom one does have a heatsink on the vrm. For the top red pcb, probably attached to the hsf. I've seen ones w/ no vram heatsinks but no vrm is typically asking for trouble w/ more heat.

here's a PC dual fan. This one has heatplates for both vram and vrm:

295x2 reviews are in. Sadly, msrp is ~$1500 USD. I'm not ready to upgrade for almost a year so I'll just wait for depreciating prices. Does consume ~600w at the wall (~500w factoring efficiency). Temps are really good. AnandTech got it ~70c at load (Crysis3), so that cooler definitely helps the volcanic Hawaii's.

Some of the reviews shows R9 290X crossfire slightly beating the 295X2 by a small margin, i'll stick with one 290X for now and add another in the future. With everything in perspective the 295X2 isn't really a bad price considering two 290x's would run you about $600 each ($1200) + $100-$150 ($200-$300) in water blocks each= $1400-$1500. Or get a couple PowerColor LCS AXR9 290X at the same cost. biggrin.gif

I'll get one 290X with water block for now haha

now that the mining craze has settled down, there going for $400 used on ebay (mining beaters). so you can get a quad 290X setup for ~ the price of a 295X2.

I'm only interested since it has the four mini dp and if I keep my 5x1 Eyefinity setup. 4K looks very tempting and the Samsung 28" makes the temptation worse @ $700. But I'm hearing there's issues with these monitors (dead pixels possibility, excessive light bleed, loss of signal, etc.), so I may still hold on to these Dells smile.gif.
