Thanks to the bundled MSI GAMING App gamers can quickly switch between three pre-sets including a silent mode optimized for power efficiency and an overclocking and OC Mode to get the most power out of your graphics card, without worrying about learning how to overclock. The R9 290 GAMING 4G has been designed to give you a gaming experience that delivers you true next-gen performance for ultra HD resolutions without sacrificing on thermals to kick-start your gaming rig for 2014. The MSI Twin Frozr IV Advanced has been completely customized for the R9 290 GAMING 4G to deliver the best thermal experience. The design uses a larger copper base for heat absorption and the heat pipes are in contact with a bigger part of the heat sink and exposed to more airflow to ensure the highest performance of the GPU because of optimal temperatures. Combined with the dual form-in-one heat sinks that add both cooling ability and structural reinforcement the R9 290 GAMING 4G stays cool and safe.

Physical: This card is absolutely gorgeous. I have never owned a GPU that looks as nice as this card. I want to show it off, unfortunately you have to hide it in your case. The card is extremely well built. You can tell MSI put time into the design and style. Nothing about this card makes you think they cut corners or went with cheap parts. All high grade capacitors, fans, and solid metals.
Performance: I am not a bit-miner and never plan to be, I bought this card with the intention of gaming. This card tears through anything I throw at it. For example, I can play Battlefield 4 in Gaming Mode (977mhz) and get a constant 60+ frames per second in Eyefinity (Resolution: 5760x1080p), and the temperature stays around ~60 degrees Celsius after hours of gaming. When putting the card in OC Mode (1007mhz) even a single card gets pretty warm. I was getting around ~78 degrees Celsius with no noticeable performance gains, just more noise and heat. So I stay playing in Gaming Mode.
Noise: After playing a demanding game for one hour+ I noticed some pretty steady fan noise. Nothing to be concerned, and quieter than a stock cooler. But once you start stressing the card with Eyefinity, you'll hear the fan, but nothing concerning. When in idle/on the web/emails/etc. the card is silent.
Heat: On a single card setup and had no issues keeping the card under 80 degrees Celsius even in the most demanding games and using the preset 1007mhz overclock. You can easily feel warm air flows out of your case which is normal. It never feels too hot at any time.
Conclusion: If you want a high quality card, built with care, that will play games with ease, even in a triple monitor Eyefinity setup, this is it. I cannot say anything about crossfire setups, but if I were to purchase multiple GPUs, I would probably look towards the reference blower design: Pulls air in, pushes it through the card, and exhausts the hot air out of your case, rather then any of these non-reference cards that just circulate the air around your case without having it exit.
This is a replacement for my old GTX 660 Galaxy OC, big improvement, I dare to say 80% improvement on performance, the CPU is a I5 3570K with 8 GB ddr3 1333 RAM, so far I have been able to play Far Cry 4 for about 7 straight hours, no heat issues so far, one thing, with my case without the side case lid on, it reached 78 Celsius degrees, but closed it reached 82 Celsius degrees, I need to add at least one more fan to my case.
The other game that I have tried is Dragon Age Inquisition, good performance as well, Mantle for this games seems to work fine so I have no complaint about Mantle so far. The card itself is offering a massive value, at least for me it is, it is offering full 4 GB of RAM, great Overclock capabilities (water cooled preferred for this part), this time around I came to AMD because of the value and performance that they are offering with their products right now.
So far so good, great item, and the best part is that I have had 0% need to call customer service and that is a great thing. XD
As for the card itself, It's decent. The fans are quiet, though the card does run a bit hot. I've reached upwards of 80c, but AMD has said that it's capable of running at 94c. As for the performance, coming from a Radeon HD 7770, I expected higher frames per second. But it's still good enough since It allows most games to be maxed out. Though playing Battlefield 4 with super sampling on will probably kill your performance.
There is one major problem however, at one point while playing Metro 2033, the screen began showing graphical artifacts. There were green dots everywhere, like green dust. But the problem continued even after exiting the game. Restarting the PC didn't fix it so I thought this card was about to fail just after a week of owning it. But I switched the BIOS switch back and forth once and I haven't had any problems since then. So I have no idea what that was.
Also, if you get this card, make sure it has Hynix memory chips rather Elipdia. The Hynix ones have the lowest fail rate.
