    TechPowerUp 4K Gaming Build Guide

    The Thermaltake Core V31 case recommendation is horrible when taking into account the amount of heat 2 x GTX 980 Tis produce while gaming. Even more so when taking into consideration said GPUs coolers' form-factor, which will basically throw all that heat straight at the plastic window...

    MSI R9 280X Gaming 3072 MB

    Hello. I've seen the same issue mentioned, but with the GIGABYTE R9 280X OC variant over a thread I've opened regarding its fan noise issue. Until someone that has first-hand BIOS flashing experience with this card comes along, it might be worth checking out the Driver disc that came with your...

    Gigabyte R9 280X OC 3072 MB

    A question please, W1zzard: Could you take a look into this reply and share from your experience if that's a BIOS file you've also tried? If so, any ideas why that person isn't able to update his BIOS (maybe the BIOS switch is in the wrong position) ? Regards,

    AMD Radeon R9 290X CrossFire

    Thank you W1zzard, for this review (and the non-CF one). It baffles me why AMD puts its cooling solution's noise output at the 'Absolutely Not A Priority' category yet again. Same case was with its CrossFired HD 7990 card, even though its cooling solution features a triple fan configuration...

    Gigabyte R9 280X OC 3072 MB

    Thank you very much, W1zzard for the review! Also, your time spent back and forth with GIGABYTE, in order to try and get them to realize the importance of not only performance - but comfort (i.e: less operating noise when gaming) - is appreciated. Alas, this time around GIGABYTE chose to stand...

    Dunno if that's the thread to ask for it, but that would be sweet!

    Asus R9 280X DC II TOP 3072 MB

    Sweet. Looking forward to the review. I'm guessing there won't be much chance in seeing another BIOS from there that's even less noisy.. P.S. Sorry about the wrong thread thing, thanks for going with it anyways :)

    Asus R9 280X DC II TOP 3072 MB

    Hello W1zzard, and thank you for the review. Been a long time reader of techPowerUp, glad to be here. I've got a few burning questions if you please, regarding what's quoted above: My new gaming rig (listed in my specs) is missing only its GPUs. I'd love getting myself two GIGABYTE R9 280X...
