Hey, I'm getting an r9 390 soon. Not sure which one to get. I was leaning towards the sapphire nitro because better cooling, but just found this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131672
they seem equal on GPUBoss, but idk.

here's the sapphire: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202164&cm_re=r9_390-_-14-202-164-_-Product

msi: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127874&cm_re=r9_390-_-14-127-874-_-Product

Sapphire>MSI. Not only is the cooler more efficient, but it overclocks better more often than not.

I have the 390 in your pic. Powercolor r9 390 pcs+. Great card.

>>51494148
alright, thank you. Powercolor r9 is a bit cheaper so I'll probably go with that
>>
>>51493921
Sapphire has the best cooler but pcs+ is cheaper, a fairly good cooler and includes a backplate.
>>
>>51494538
thanks for the reply, I'm in a tight spot in terms of money atm so I think I'll go with the pcs+

You're correct that their cooling is much more efficient, but while having two 8pin supplementary power connectors their overclock potential is significantly worse. MSI is renowned for picking the highest binned chips from AMD.

To OP, there's a 390 owner club that's very resourceful:

>>51495551
oh, I'll take a look. thank you.

Sapphire and MSI both make great 390s. Pick either one and you'll be happy.
>>
>>51494538
The Sapphire has a backplate too. As of about a month ago.

And just a tip if you're after a good OCing card in general, if you get a card that barely OC's regardless of voltages/aux just RMA it for coil whine. Make sure you put in you have very sensitive hearing and you bought the graphic card for the 0db for that just so they don't try fuck you around with the RMA for coil whine.

>hey guys I'm getting a Radeoven 390 house fire edition soon
Why?
>>
>>51495993
Because sapphire 390 is 3,5x cooler than your circumcised gtx 970
>>
>>51495993
just as OP predicted.
>>
>>51495740
People like you is why companies have to make RMAs so hard.
