My HIS 295x2 is now installed and running great. I guess some are you are wondering how I got a retail version this soon. Was sheer luck,
Newegg had the Powercolor and HIS version on the site saying "Coming Soon". Tuesday night around 9PM EST I looked and sure enough the HIS version was available. I immediately purchased it and did overnight shipping. Not sure how many Newegg had but they were sold out within 1 hour. Now in my system and running great.In my opinion this is AMD's best designed reference card ever.
Very solid feel, All metal shroud. Does NOT Droop in my system
The 120MM radiator/Fan installed with no problems.
With full load - Very Quite
The red lighted fan will add a RED glow inside of your system. I have a RED theme so great in my system.
The word "RADEON" is also lighted RED.
Currently I am at 1085 on both cores and a very healthy 1700 on the memory (Hynix Memory). Only overclocking in CCC. Both firestrike and Heaven Valley are stable at 4K resolution.
After a 15 minute run in valley temps never exceeded 72C.
