How were the VRM temperatures? They are pretty poor from what I've seen on the net.

For the record, you have to be very careful when buying this card that you get the version that actually cools the VRM. As it gets so bad it throttles.

This card may look like sex, but I still can't shake off ALL the damn build quality issues alot of us had with the previous gen of XFX cards.

(VRM not VRAM, Silly me)

Luckily the XFX 8800GTX I had was reference so there were no issues

Just watched the video. That's the card I'm going for. Definitely, and it sits way way cheaper than the other 290s

I'm guessing others may of measured the VRM temps with one of those laser pointer thermometers, I think that's how it's done anyway.

Uningine Performance

Hey you tech savy geeks and experts here, can someone tell my if it's normal for the 780 to out perform the 290 in unigine valley and heaven and why does that happen?

My max score and fps on Valley with extreme HD is 65 fps and around 2750, I have a 2600K and R9 290 Vapor X, however I see people boasting their 780 which crushes mine since they're around 3000 scores and around 70 fps and higher.

Slap that cooler on a GTX 760 and I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

That really is one good looking card. I'm growing a bit tired of all the same old 'gaming' style cards. I want a classy looking pc
