Best Bang for Buck

I'd like to share my experience with this card so far by saying in short, It's super awesome.

The pricing on this card is the highest of all the R9 290X, however it really delivers that price to you, with it's triple fans all PWM, State of the art components and a nice "Lightning" LED on the front the card is sexy. The card i have is the LE version of it when it was cheaper than the OC, but there's no difference since they are both quite the same just one is at a higher base clock than the other and it only hit a max of 76c degrees, and my room is around 28-29c so it's a very warm room compared to others.

I've gotten this card up to 1220 Mhz which is just crazy fast, comparing it to the base clock of 1000 Mhz it's a 10-12 FPS difference. The graphics struggles at nothing when it comes to 1080p gaming as it easily achieves 60fps and higher and if you have a 1440p monitor or higher, you're going to love this card. To get these clocks to be stable I highly suggest using all the power connectors and switching it to LN2 mode, you need the extra stability for it.

The pricing on this card considering the performance is outstanding! comparing it to a Nvidia GTX 980 it's about


Best 290X

This card is a beast. It shines when it comes to over clocking. Have it sitting at 1180/1550 and highest temp I've seen during long game sessions is around 65c. I could clock it higher but I'm stable at this clock and it handles all my games at ultra.

Also fantastic service by ocuk. I originally bought a 290x 8gb card but shortly after realised I would get more bang for my buck out of this card. Ocuk had no problems returning the card and swapping it for this. It was all handled very well.

I highly recommend getting this card until 390x arrives later this year.
