Protected by hard cardboard the XFX R9 280x DD is very well protected in shipping. Many other brands use plastic guards and non recyclable Styrofoam . The fact XFX uses almost all cardboard to package their GPU which is a win to us, this is a great way to prove your company cares about the environment with all recyclable material.

The nice thing about these covers are when your building a system for your computer illiterate friends you can just leave the covers on all the slots but the one they need. Then they will always be able to plug their computer in after moving it or cleaning it without calling you. Win winang4 - XFX R9 280X DD Unboxing


Clean dual fan and flat black exterior makes the XFX 280x look great in almost any build.
Sadly no back plate but this is one of the lowest cost R9 280x’s you can get with a good quality (looking)cooler.back2 - XFX R9 280X DD Unboxing


Dual covers on the Crossfire Bridge which again is a great protective and looks feature. Also you can see the height of the cooler is protruding over the PCB board both over the back and top.back - XFX R9 280X DD Unboxing
