Cons: it draws a lot of power and it does kick out a lot of heat into the case

Pros: -great performance for a good price-good cooling -quiet
Great card from msi. mind you that you need a beefy psu to run these

Review Date: 02/19/14
Cons: Expensive; No free gift games

Pros: Good build quality; Quiet; Running very cool
This MSI 290x runs very strong and very cool. The cooler GPU temperature is the deal breaker for me. At full load(BF3/BF4), This card runs between 64-74 degree, and the fan is not very noisy compared to my old GTX 680. This is an amazing customized 290X by MSI! Only cons is the price, after tax it is north of eight hundreds:D

Cons: Overpriced

Pros: Nice designPowerfulExcellent cooler
The MSI's Twin Frozr does an excellent job, in comparision with the reference cooler (about 75 degrees Celcius versus 94 degrees Celcius). The MSI Radeon R9 290X Gaming OC is on par with the GeForce GTX 780 Ti reference card, in term of performance. You can max all settings in any game you want, in any resolution, even in 4K (except maybe some settings, like anti-aliasing).I'm very satisfied with that video card, a lot more powerful than my old Ati Radeon 4850 ^^. If you build a new gaming pc, you can't be wrong if you choose the MSI Radeon R9 290X Gaming OC. It's overpriced, but if you have the budget, go for it!

Cons: Expensive.

Pros: Fast. I upgraded to this card from an EVGA GTX 770 as I purchased a 1440p monitor. This card is super fast. I can max all settings on Battlefield 4 at 1440p. Haven't run into any slowdowns yet. Max temp after a few hours playing BF4 is 75c.
If your running a 1440p monitor and are looking for a single card solution this is it.

We don't want to bug you with noise and heat, but we DO want to give you more performance. With MSI GAMING series graphics cards you get just that.


Most MSI Gaming graphics cards come pre-overclocked out of the factory. This simply means you get more performance out of your card, without spending any time on checking for maximum clocks and stability. Pre-overclocked graphics cards simply give more performance and you don't have to worry about damaging your card, it is completely covered by our warranty!

MSI's Twin Frozr has been the industry defining graphics card cooler. The first Twin Frozr kicked of the dual-fan trend and today MSI stays true to its dual-fan dual-slot design where others have to resort to less effective means.

The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is a large Aluminium fin grid array that provides a huge amount of surface area for cooling. Heat from the GPU is transferred to the fin grid array by virtue of heat pipes with MSI's special SuperPipe technology. SuperPipes transfer heat twice as fast as regular heat pipes enabling an MSI GAMING graphics card to stay cooler than the competition.Futhermore, MSI provide all new Airflow Control technology on Twin Frozr. This new thermal tech. is leading airflow to heat pipe by spcial deflector on heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to heat pipes directly. In addtion,This exclusive heatsink design is increasing the area of heatsink so that enhancing the efficiency of dissipation much more.



One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. That is why MSI only uses MIL-STD-810G certified components for its Gaming cards because only these components have proven to be able to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking.


One With their aluminum core design, Solid CAP's have been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan.




A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a CPU socket to install large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP's MSI mainboards are the most energy efficient in the market.


It?s a new generation, form-in-one choke, which doesn?t generate vibration noise under heavy loading & provide 37,5% higher current output comparing with traditional ring chock. It?s very important when GPU is overclocked or under high loading, since it requires even more amount of electricity which can be provided through this component.





A built-in screen and video capturing tool named Predator whichcaptures your screen as still images or videos with the push of a button and allows you to capture and record your coolest, goofiest and most awesome gaming moments on your PC!


MSI Afterburner has quickly become the favorite overclocking software for media, overclockers and end-users. Because of its simple interface, it's easy to learn, but it packs a lot of powerful features like an integrated benchmark utility called Kombustor that can check your system performance in benchmarking mode, or run as a stability test.

Don't speak English? No problem: MSI Afterburner is translated in many languages including Russian, Spanish, Chinese and Korean! Not satisfied with the looks? Just change to one of the many different skins or create one yourself with ease!

Even better, you can run Afterburner straight from your smartphone! Download the MSI Afterburner App from Google Play or the Apple store and start overclocking wit.
