Great card. Feb. 14 2014
By Giannis Papas - Published on
Verified Purchase
Good price, great performance.
Let me just say that i owned a Sapphire Radeon R9 290X before i bought this one. The Reference cooled Radeon R9 290X raised its temperature to 95 degrees celcius and that forced the card to throttle and drop in performance by quite a bit sometimes. Core clock which was supposed to be 1Ghz, often dropped as low as 870Mhz due to the temperatures rising to 95 degrees.
Now this custom cooled MSI R9 290X is overclocked to 1030 or 1040 if you want the uber setting, its working constantly on that core clock without even trying and the temperature does never go over 74 degrees celcius. Huge difference in both performance and temps. Great choice

Money well spent. March 8 2014
Verified Purchase
Totally worth the money. Had a GTX760, so I got a huge performance boost. Sweet FPS and I love how quiet it is. No overheating or any issues at all, except for the well-known AMD drivers huge pointer problem, but I don't even care.

a gargantuan step ahead, above, &beyond April 11 2014

The notoriously feeble stock heatsink, presented in the "going strong since the 5870" black plastic shroud. The twin frozr if is an magnificent little devil, quite seriously providing triple split caliber cooling in a dual slot design. Allows the Hawaii GPU & her 2818 shaders to uncork, hitting 1.1 GHz speeds without breaking 80°C & leaving headroom that is rarely seen on an R9 AMD GPU.
Power GPU, poor support, glitchy fan control July 14 2014

Most likely going to return this, MSI customer support is a joke. The fan control is locked out in MSI afterburner, even in a case with excellent ventilation the card is running 85c where my two GTX 770s would rarely hit 70c at 50% fan speed.

I'd love to crank the fan RPM up, as its running at 1100-1400 which is quite low, not audible at all which is great.... except throwing a second one in is out of the question.

Six times I called, every time I was hung up on shortly after explaining my issue. Three of the reps I spoke to weren't sure if the 290X was a VGA or a motherboard... Great to know your tech support team doesn't even know it's own products MSI.

Things a power house, but without being able to cool it properly it might as well be a paper weight, and mining with this thing isn't even possible with the temp issues.

Might be great if it's not defective. April 12 2014
By Andrew Miller - Published on
Verified Purchase
Card arrived a few days late, but that's okay. Unfortunately I'm returning my card tomorrow. Right away I noticed it wasn't performing as expected. Lower frame rates in games than benchmarks I ever read had suggested. Soon all the games I tried would crash or artifact very badly without the card overheating. That's one good thing about the card I suppose, it never got above 77c with a low of 35c. I assume when I get a non defective card it will do quite well, but I may not buy an MSI card. Probably will try a Sapphire next.
