And Check your 120hz timings
I took every step you listed (I only have one DVI port) so I am looking to try a different cable.
I've no idea about timings I don't even know what they're about biggrin.gif I used your CRU settings

Would my 750 watt Seasonic Gold G-series G be powerful enough to power for 2x Gigabyte R9 290 Windforce or Sapphire R9 290 Tri X OC does anyone one know?

So you choices are as follows..buy a random monitor which will most probably have Back light bleed as most have!..also you and could have dead/stuck pixels meaning you have dead/stuck pixel plus BLB!..or buy the ultimate pixel perfect Qinx from excellentcastle..i personally would buy the from ultimate pixel perfect from excellentcastle and buy a 3 year Square trade insurance policy as i did..because Back light bleed can be fixed 100% guaranteed if you have the confidence to take the monitor apart and fix it...we have found the main course of back light bleed is the fact that the monitor is sitting in a bent metal frame this can be fixed very easily if you follow my guide you just need the confidence to take the monitor apart...the tape fix does NOT work most of the as all that does is tries to do is seal the gaps of the bent metal frame...once the frame is straightened there is no need for any tape as you have fixed the source of the problem instead of plugging the gaps...so they are the facts and now the choice is yours...

I went the perfect pixel route and fixed my BLB 100% and i could not be happier because i now have an A+ Screen for only £200!...if you want to go the perfect pixel route as i did i would only use excellentcastle at this point in time as we have found that he has constantly been supplying pixel perfect monitors if you buy his ultimate pixel perfect..i know what i would do its perfect pixel for me every time and fix the BLB...i hope this helps thumb.gif

Edit: i would contact excellentcastle first before you buy his ultimate pixel perfect monitor as it would seem he has had some trouble acquiring them which means you may have to wait a week or so...but if you want a perfect pixel monitor it would be well worth the week or so wait!..as many of our members i am sure will tell you that have bought his ultimate pixel perfect monitor from him! ...As they have been more than pleased with there monitors!



Hi Lawson 67,

I decided to go with the ultimate pixel perfect Qinx from excellentcastle like you said. I emailed square trade my Ebayitem ID to make sure if they support that item. If I get back a positive reply, I will add the warranty as well.

Thanks

Will update after I receive it !

I came up with 593w with 2 290s. No OC though.

To be honest, GPU resellers/manufactures over rate what the GPU/system actually needs. I really think there is some kickback from the PSU makers that give GPU makers $ for higher recommendations.

Look at this vid.

I don't know much, but here is what I think I know.. Close.. If you were to watercool them, they will actually draw less power, so that's another bonus.

I picked this up on THG"
Quote:
For a system using two Radeon R9 290 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode a minimum of a 850 Watt or greater system power supply is recommended. The power supply should also have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 65 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

You can rebuild your rig on newegg and the site will display the power it needs. Should be enough though.
