SAPPHIRE has been making great looking video cards for quite some time now, but its Tri-X coolers not only look good, but they are also incredibly efficient at keeping the Radeon R9 290X cool, while also being quiet. Let's take a detailed look at the SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 8GB Tri-X.
Starting with the front of the card, we have the triple-fan cooler and the beautiful orange and black theme.
After testing and reviewing various GeForce video cards with a back plate, the lack of a back plate is weird - something I'm sure we're going to see used on the upcoming Radeon 300 series.
From the bottom, we can see that this is a dual-slot card with its cooler protruding just enough that it is a kind of 2.2-slot card.
This time from the top.
A closer look at the dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
