Well considering it's down from 95 and remains quiet, i'd say it's tamed
The Sapphire Tri-X version i'm getting, all reviews i've seen so far are reporting max temps of ~74 and that's in furmark, normal gaming is ~70.
And that's with a max noise level of ~43db, that makes the Tri-X just as cool and quiet as the 780/Ti.
I don't know how the other aftermarket 290/x coolers are because there are no reviews for them yet, but if they do just a good of a job then the 290 is definitely tamed
