Actually the PCS+ handily beats the Tri-X, and trades blows with the vapor-x

Here's a review of the 290x version http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/65702-powercolor-r9-290x-pcs-4gb-review.html

And here is the same review done for the sapphire tri-x 290:

This comparison is actually in favor of the sapphire as it's being done on a 290 instead of 290x with the powercolor, but as you see the powercolor still runs cooler and quieter.
