Quoted from Asus Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II OC Reviews:Check out these quotes from Asus Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II OC reviews & previews
"Yeah, it's the 290X that are custom cooled that will make the difference, this ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II OC is a perfect example of what the 290 and 290X really needs to be."
"The ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II OC is the answer to all the issues hotly debated in regards to the reference AMD Radeon R9 290X. It fixes the cooling issues, keeping the GPU cooler, and it fixes the noise issues providing quiet operation while doing so. On top of that, you get a little extra kick in the pants thanks to the factory overclock of 1050MHz. The ASUS R9 290X DCU II OC is able to maintain this clock speed in "Quiet" and "Performance" mode."
"The Asus R9 290X Direct CU II is a gaming card and the fastest AMD based single GPU solution we have tested."
"Overall the Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II OC from ASUS is a very good graphics card. The noise level with the performance BIOS could be a tiny little bit better, but since it's a performance BIOS there is definitely nothing to seriously complain about. Also the pricing is appropriate. This card might cost 130 Euro more than a reference R9 290X but since it is as fast as a GeForce GTX 780 Ti, which costs the same, pricing is just about right."
"Overall we can say if you go get yourself a high-end R9 290X and you want to get the maximum out of this card, then we'd recommend you to go for a custom watercooling loop and the EK-FC R9-290X-DCII is certainly doing a great job."
