    elp... there she is... and unlike the 290X, it can OVERCLOCK O_O. At 400 dollars and overclocks to better than 290X performance, and in most instances is pretty close in stock trim... yeah... Ima buy dis...

    That's what I was waiting for. This card is impressive both in terms of pure performance and for performance/price. Unfortunately it runs hot like the 290X (but it is a reference cooler, let's not forget that).

    The temptation it too strong, I think I might get one and put it under water.

    I agree. I want one. Cant wait to see some Crossfire numbers too. This model is bridge-less. The performance at high res is what truly makes it a winner. It holds its own at lower res but once you crank up those pixels it keeps really good FPS when other cards stronger choking out. Very nice work.

    Thanks for sharing the link!

    I strongly suggest that anyone interested in the 290 go over to AnandTech.com and very carefully read their analysis of its noise levels before making a buying decision.

    Of course I wouldn't take a r9 290 to keep it with the stock cooler. IMHO this card makes sense only if watercooled.

    Yeah, could be. Although I'll be interested in seeing what 3rd party air coolers can do for both the 290 and 290x. Also curious what the 780 TI will be like. I'm about due for an upgrade of some sort.

    R9 290X is Def. a waterblock card... No air cooling for this monster...
    I would be interested in seeing what it can do in Xfire... Although I am happy with my 7970s right now.. there is always room for improvement..

    I am extremely Old School (as in "antiquated") where there is a very firm belief that water and electronics don't mix.

    I ignore the noise leavels on Ref gpus. i pay attention to heat to an extent. If it is a single fan ref cooler then I would expect the 3rd party to release 2 fan solutions which takes care of both issues. Ref cards belong underwater. If not by a 3rd party solution.

    Yes, of course 3rd party air coolers can improve noticeably both temperatures and noise level, but you will probably have to wait 1-2 months before non reference cards come out. Even with a 3rd party cooler, I am not sure I would get a 290x for that. If you account for the extra cost of the non reference cooler you might just get a 780 now.

    Just make sure your loop is properly sealed and they won't.

    Meh, 780 is too expensive for what it delivers. Until we see the fruits of either G-Sync or Mantle it's too hard to tell which brand offers the biggest bang for the buck, though Mantle DOES appear to be garnering more support from game devs.

    Someone should just build a small refrigeration unit for the entire system inside a tower case and declare Done! No more cooling problems ever again. Would probably run quieter than a stock 290. Handy place to keep a chilled beer, too.

    Maybe you should be the first to build a viable one. BUILD LOG! It would be cool if you could make sure there is no condensation.
