There should be a giant difference, 290X hits thermal ceiling so much faster with 34% fan. "Uber mode" should remove almost all throttling... giant difference on stuff like Unigine, AvP. Long benchmarks.

Quiet mode (one of the BIOS switch options) limits fan speed to 34% (should be identical acoustics to a Titan/780). The unlocked/"Uber" mode just makes the speed limit something like 50%. It makes a big difference as far as throttling goes, especially for people with high ambient temps or playing intensive games. For benchmarks, not so much difference since the cards are always warming up.
