    Guess the annoying thing is how do you know what you got when you purchase the card?. Would be interesting to see if there can be another review with this new one (it's hard to tell, a part of me says they did change the pump, while the other think it's just a cosmetic change)

    They should have gone with the ASETEK pump solution.
    It has better performance and less noise. ;)

    Does opening the card like that to check which one it is void the warranty?

    Wouldn't there be an easier way to tell, like a revision number on the box/sticker?

    And you still get an RMA for that or does it void the warranty and you're SOL?

    So, with Etailers saying this is not an RMA worthy issue, were does this put us? Do we know if you have a pre-order at the moment, (my ETA for stock in UK is 17/7/15, will it have the newer version pump?

    I had massive coil wine from my R9 295x2 for a few months but seems to have gradually dissapeared (unless my hearing has got used to it.)

    Fury X whining I believe there was also moaning as well as whining.....




    Pleased (hope) they fixed this nothing worse when you have a new toy and its doing things it shouldn't. All the fury X need is overclocking software and we will see what its capable off.

    It's like HH says...no big deal--and for those who might think it is, it's now no longer an issue. Yawn....
