    smolt

      My first question: I have a sapphire r9 290 4g d5. Is sapphire the name of the group, and the gpu is reffered to as "r9 290", or is the sapphire part important?

       

      Second One:

      I have the stock cooler with a mini tower and 2 SP120 fans at the front and back. I also don't trust myself to test overclocking, in case I break something. My final question is can I with my current system?

      Intel i54590 CPU

      8gb hyperx fury 1866mhz ram (2x4 if it matters)

      R9 290

      Asus b85m-g r2.0 motherboard

      In conclusion of the second question, can I overclock? and how much? (using msi afterburner)
