Windows 7: My New R9 280X

My New R9 280X

Whats up guys!

so heres my new toy.... MSI R9 280X!

this is a beast of a card! very powerful and plays every game out there at 1080p

some benchmarks with games i have played so far:

BF3 64 player server 65-80 FPS Maxed out
Metro Last Light 60 FPS maxed out 2x AA

this is all still on beta drivers (13.11) and its only going to get better!

the card so far has never hit 65c

there are some stutters and frame dips here and there in games but i think after the drivers become official, it will run amazing!

my only complaint about the card is that it wines like a kid without candy! usually after 50% load it wines noticeably and when i get over 500FPS it squeals a lot! but again i think it will be fine after a driver update. other people were complaining about too, so im not worried. i got a 3 year warranty.

ill post my Unigine Heaven benchmarks as soon as i get home....

heres some pics!

Could be due to it being new maybe it will go out if you keep working it for a while

its crazy the price to performance! its comparable to a gtx 770 at 150$ less! i wonder what my benchmark score will be eventually i want to mod the stock bios and flash higher clocks then flash it to the 2nd bios.

R9 280x (one fan not spinning)
I had this graphic card for around a year now and it was working perfectly fine. Used it to mine cryptocurrency for a month or two but after that it was just used to game. I used to never go over 70~75c but now it goes to 83c while gaming and the (one) fan is pretty loud. Any fixes?
