Experience: 1 Months
-Build quality
-Performance (outperform sapphire tri-x on stock setting)
-Noise (quieter than sapphire tri-x
-Reinforce perforated back plate
-Hynix gddr5 (rated v 1500mhz)
-Low temp
Outstanding graphic card. Build quality is really amazing. The reinforced back plate really improve the stability of the card. Using stock setting, i'm getting 2450 in unigine valley at EXTREME HD setting.

Experience: 12 Days
 Verified Owner
quiet, powerful
right now, hard to get and pricey
Using the factory overclock setting of 1007MHz, the temp never breaks above 74C. I read that a stock AMD R9 290 card's temp can rise to 95C. The fans are very quiet. Very noticeable upgrade from my GTX 670. Very nice hardware.

The only issues now relate to availability and present day pricing. Current pricing puts it into competition with other cards that may be better value for your money. You will want to do your research.
