Indeed it does. It's a little better on quiet mode, but not by much. I hope aftermarket coolers perform a lot better on it.

It'd be more appropriate if you replaced "290X" with "the 290X reference cooler".

I always want to use newer AMD cards, but the power consumption really bothers me. :(

At most, the R9 290X system pulls ~60W than a Titan system. That's hardly a deal breaker.

Using absolute temperature in a context where it's completely unnecessary is bad science.
