made me crack up
Hehe seems about right.
all over net they say 290/x ref fans are loud.
Well they are wrong.
I recently acquired 2 x ref 290 and the fan are not that loud. I used MSI AB to crank up the fan. At FULL load, GPU stays below 70 deg and fans are cranking up to around 3100 rpm (from rivatuner). No downclocking experience as well.
actually at full load, the my crossfire 7950 vapor X are even more louder! at idle yes it is silent but when I am doing benchmarks, and tried pushing limits, the vapor x are louder.
Well actually my AP182 fans on my RV03 case are even louder than these 290's.
So I am very happy. Now I dont care what people say against the ref Hawaii cards
I am not NVIDIA fan but certainly I am not AMD fan neither. I wanted to try high end NVIDIA cards but 780's and ti's here are so expensive. I could get a 2 x 290's here with a price of only 1 780ti.
Flames were a nice touch. That way you know its fast.
My brief ownership of an XFX reference R9 290 did reflect a hot 92c card BUT at load the noise wasn't that bad at all - nothing high pitched but a noticeable but acceptable whoosh sound.
Haha, as a proud 290 owner, I think that's funny!
Please not again that old, old crap joke, not even well done....
I say misleading title. This is not a R9 290X noise test.
This is "i didn't pay attention last year when someone put this on youtube and it harvested multiple posts on all R9 290X threads on all PC hardware fora on the Internet"
Should be moved to General Nonsense., IMO
Not well done? It's genius!
You can't cook shit on a GTX 480 either, but people still lapped that up, it's funny my man.
mine are dead silent now
Any one wanting any help I will
I built a steel railing system that has thin tabs with neoprene coating that i can attach along with the cooler to the mounting holes. I then dead bolted it to the bottom of my case so when I play crysis 3 im not in any danger of "heat wobble". This guy obviously only knows enough to get him in trouble and seasoned PC tech that owns a 290X would tell you the card needs to be stabilized prior to installation.
That was pretty funny.
I have a R9 290 that I overclocked on the stock cooler and I can say that it was loud as f*ck. It kicked the snot out of every game I threw at it, but I am glad it's going under water tonight.
Now that's hilarious
I take it you missed the original 290X review thread from last October. #OldFunnies
For 60 pounds silence and loads better than any other gpu cooler that's isn't full water.
