    hi guys, so I got 2 Ares 3 the other day and now I'm puzzled by the monitor choice. Not sure about the rog swift! too many negative reviews.

    but back on the ares 3, does the hdmi out support 144hz? i'm concerned with this port hitting this rate since I'd like to get 3 fast monitors for FPS.

    anyone know, or heard any reviews with people running them in crossfire, or with multiple display setups? thanks

    HDMI supports 144Hz fine, depending on resolution. Don't buy a Swift with AMD.

    CF + 3 display should be fine, depending on the drivers. Connect all the displays to one card not split.

    Hi, sorry to barge in. I am looking to upgrade from VG278HR to ROG PG278Q mainly for the improved resolution. I am not going to use Gsync at all but does the single display still 'work normally' at 144 Hz without G-sync? I always play with Vsync off anyway and only Quake2 and Quake Live.

    Thanks!

    By the way here's mine. The card looks amazing, I hope it works out of the box. I am going to install it over the weekend. I have GTX 780 TI SLI on water now but those will go into my other rig or I switch to air cooling for them. On thing I am wondering with this card, it carries 3-year warranty but I guess the water block cannot be cleaned once a year without losing warranty?

    Wow, damn you to have one

    Yes, it seems that you will "loose" warranty when you disassemble the card, there's a warranty sticker on one screw, ugh

    NIce looking, i got the ARES 3 installed with a SwIft monitor and i have no issue which either 120/144hz.
    The only thing i dont have is the G-synch (since its nvidia ofc)
    I can totally recommend buy it, if you want the looks/asthetics

    Thanks man! Definitely going for Swift.

    I installed the Ares III already but ran out of EK's premix liquid, going to test tonight when I get more liquid. Hopefully all good...

    Heartbroken,.. and sadly,.. I proceeded to remove the 2 x Ares 3 in crossfire,and installed the 3 Poseidon's in 3-Sli

    I'm a FPS hardcore gamer and I have no choice but to get the Swift when it becomes avail in early November. Which brings me to another question: When will the Swift become avail again?

    I guess they aren't that sought after, after all.
    Damn near everybody has them in stock.
    Extremely stupid of ASUS to not include some lighting for this card.
    WTF use blood red acrylic on top when it just disappears after it's mounted?
    There's even no lighted logo. I repeat. That's completely stupid, ASUS.
    Now that the drivers have matured this is an excellent running card.
    It runs rings around every other card I have right now, including my GTX 690.
    BTW, here's the actual review at OC3D: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/g...s_iii_review/1
    Don't be too disappointed. Everything he says is absolutely true.
    Practically any R9 295X will beat the ARES 3. Just use an aftermarket water block.
    Probably the last "exclusive" ASUS card I'll ever buy. The value just isn't there anymore.
    My name is Legion; for we are many.
