Find a reference 290x for cheap on ebay. I've seen them hit as low as $350 used (probably ex-miners though).


You can always go with the ek acetal version to match your Supremacy smile.gif

My concern about buying used is having no warranty. But yea the Ek block is a consideration. I just kinda wanted to be able to see my coolant in the GPU block and I like the AC block so much more. Plus it's the best performing block by far.

msi warranty is via serial #. I had to rma a couple of my Lightnings and it was very painless and fast. I'm not the original owner and you just need to enter the serial #.

Don't need proof of purchase/invoice?

Sweet! Only thing is how do they determine how much time is left on the warranty?

From manufacturing date that is probably distinguished in the serial number somewhere.

There's a way to figure the month and year via the serial #:

Oh nice find! I just looked at my current card and it's 1403 so I guess I would be good through March 2017? I'm debating just keeping my card and getting the EK nickel/acrylic block now since it supposedly works with the AC backplate which is what makes a huge difference (20C) in VRM temps.
