The new R9 series from AMD is the brand’s performance lineup and the 290X sits at the top of the heap. It is the fastest single-GPU card AMD has ever made. The problem with the 290X though is that it runs hot. Really hot. As in hot enough to overload the stock cooler and force the card to throttle itself down to avoid causing damage. This is obviously a very big problem, but luckily manufacturers have a solution.

Today we are taking a look at the R9 290X Tri-X from Sapphire. To keep this beast cool, Sapphire designed a massive triple fan cooler that promises to keep the temps low and prevent the performance loss from throttling. Read on to see how it performed.
