Now we are talking. With those acoustics, ASUS has a winner...pending the retail price (and economy in 2014).

Was thinking to myself Asus has been using that cooler design for a while now, getting pretty boring. But that pre-sticker black-on-black looks amazing.

Just a note the Join discussion in the article links to the first page in the review. Nice review though personally I am more interested in the custom 290's. Looking forward to CES and hopefully light coin dies down and everyone starts throwing their gpu's on the market. Doubtful I know as the next digital currency is right around the corner.

this should peek alot of intrest in the gigabyte windforce 3 since their cooler works even better typically than asus's dcuII coolers.

thanks for the review you didnt experiance any issues with the card? black screens or blurr or flickering?
