I hope you all enjoy it
Setup a power color watercooled 290x for my roommate this week, was very jealous. He's got this case with built in rad on door : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133024
. New solid metal/nickel plate bitspower waterblock on cpu now, old thermaltake acrylic one cracked. I've been toying and testing with his card for most of last week.
1025/1500 clock with 75mv bump, 54c scrypt mining, only using 275 watts due to lower temps than normal. The first wall people running watercooled 290x's and a good custom loop will hit is the pci+8pin+6pin rated wattage. Can't really go much higher on clocks without passing 300watts, kinda feel like the watercooled 290x should be dual 8pin power connectors.
Just my personal experience with one, looking forward to your results.
900 kh/s @ 50c with basement ambient @ 69f today.Edited by Vencenzo - 2/10/14 at 8:39am
