    had an issue with my dabs order and was mis-picked on my R9 290X i received an sapphire version instead of the MSI version i ordered but would like some advice on the matter tho they have offered me a refund or exchange via RMA i secured the card for £385 which was a great deal.

    I arranged this RMA 2 months back and although ive not made contact its still looks active (just recently had a baby so hence why ive not got round to it) now they only at the time offered me a refund so i have a few options i would like advice on.

    I could accept the refund and then add the £40 to it and just buy this version http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-238-MS

    or keep what i have less messing and wouldnt be without a gfx for a few week and add this http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=BU-034-TL&groupid=701&catid=2330&subcat=787

    With the new addition to the family im gaming alot more without sound and the noise is shocking its like a jet engine and my airflow is fine.

    Could always cut ATI off and get a 780GTX

    You might want to remove the second half of that post, no?

    Why not pick up one of the NZXT Kraken brackets then mount a self-contained loop to it, such as a lower end corsair H series cooler? It may be a bit more expensive then the other cooler but I'd imagine it would be quieter.

    i have seen these but never really researched it much, i like the look of them very much my only gripe is that i currently have an antec kuhler fitted to the cpu so unsure if or where i could mount this :/
