Borked Windows can also cause that. Try Prime Blend.
EK produces an all-rounder for the 290X/290. They are not the best out there performance wise, but are so close. Core and VRM temps are so good on mine. Doesn't break 50 at +200 Core Voltage with TRIXXX.
It also is a looker being Plexi and Nickel. But will require a little TLC.
I would grab it.
Will probably be a lot better than my tri-x stock cooler. Although that is a nice one for stock.
But I can't stand the noise, when I put the card above 1150.
I am being careful with my stuff.
It's just that I am opting to buy it second hand and I don't know what other people have done to it.
That's why I asked if it was okay if the dude used ArctiClean to clean the nickel plating.
But I think I will just grab it as he said he did leave the plexi alone.
75 compared to 102 for a near new item is a good deal. IMO
I did in fact find that pdf already.
Still wasn't completely clear to me. It said there was some sort of acid like stuff in there.
But you guys say it should be good?
