Its all up and running except for the corsair water cooler/ fans. Will wait till my 750d case is here.
So far i love it! The 290x dishes out quite a bit of heat.. it kind of amazed me how hot it gets... can't imagine how the reference cards cope with all that heat.
Tried a two games out on it.. Crysis 2 and Metro 2033
I get solid 60 with vsync and 90-130 with it off
and for Metro i get solid 60 with vsync and around 90 with it off
Will try some more games some time tomorrow.. 3am right now >.<
