    duel 770s type speed is not going to be alot slower than 2 r290s. Across certain benches they may even be faster.

    I tip my hat good sir.

    I have one arriving tomorrow. Waterblock that is. For my single card.

    You sir, by my reckoning, have four. Well done sir. Well done. I had a speech impediment myself.

    290 arrived this morning, played for a bit on it, getting about 30-60% better performance than my HD 7950. so pleased there

    however, I'm so glad I have a waterblock ready and waiting for it as it is noisy... target of 85C, and fans ran up to 70%... however once it settled in the clock stayed pretty much on 947MHz

    Here's a Q...

    I've just had a blat on tombraider, NFS HP and Crysis, and the card is near silent.
    According to Catalyst, temp was 85 Degrees, and fan was 22%

    Is that normal?

    You might just have a cool house and great airflow. but you might want to monitor clockspeeds in game make sure it is getting upto speed.

    It's the EK FC Terminal Quad semi parallel. It's a great way to connect all the cards and is very sturdy.
