Temperatures

The quality of the Club3D cooler shows its worth in our temperature test, being cooler than any other R9 290 by quite some margin. It's not only cool, it's quiet too. Excellent.

Nice to have another 290 with mastered cooling. Its interesting how that vendors that specialise in AMD (with the exception of XFX) have managed to tame the temperatures. Its a shame none of them have blower type coolers :I.Quote

Hey Tom watched the video and YES the sound is MUCH!!! better although I have noticed there seems to be some weird rendering issues in the last few vids you have done, where things flash and slightly repeat is the best way to describe it, but yeah dont know what going on with that but thought I should mention itQuote

I do love the backplate on this card, and those are some pretty impressive clocks for a stock 290.

One thing I would like to say though, is there any need to run Cloud gate on these high end GPUs? It is a score that I, and I'm sure many others, don't want to see.

Sky diver would be more relevant, but i do understand that there wouldn't be many cards to compare score though.

You new mic sounds good Tom.Quote

Hi Tom

Very nice looking card. I like the look of the shroud and back plate. Are the club 3D cards only available in Europe? I tried to find a price from a USA E-Tailer and could not find it for sale.

On the audio quality. It is much improved. Your voice sounds good, not brittle, or thin. It provides a nice rounded full sound. Noise from the background is not apparent and that is a good thing. Is it a Omni-directional pattern mic or a Cardioid pattern one?

Thanks again

Great sound on the video but there's quite a bit of echoQuote
