post #1311 of 9745
Hey guys just bought my Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X couple weeks ago and want to try out overclocking, can someone teach me how to oc a vga card?
Is these settings good?
Voltage 1200, Core 1200, ram 1600

Default voltage was 1163 and core 1070 and vram is 1550
And am I getting the average score with these OC settings?


P.S. I also have a problem was i didnt get any crashes when i ran Valley Benchmark 1.0 but when I play BF4 i get like a brown screen with black vertical lines is it the memory set too high? or not enough voltage for the core or for the memory if its the memory what should i set it to? the default is 1500

Hey guys, need some help. Any of you made a decision, in the last days, of going Crossfire with 280x's instead of jumping to the 290 bandwagon?

So, here's the deal... i'm gaming at 2560x1600 ( or will be since i'm building the rig atm )... and i'm kind of tired waiting for custom design 290's to appear.

So the call was to go 2 x 290's ... or just skip the 290's and get 2 x 280x ( Matrix Platinum at a great price each, 299 Eur ).

But i just can't make up my mind about this ...

If so, please tell me your experiences and if they are a good solution for 2560x1600. ( i'm not going 4k or multi-monitor ).

I would go with 2x reference 290s, and put them under water. Personally, I think that would be the smartest option. The cards will clock pretty high when watercooled, and you can overclock them further. Either that, or a 780 Ti would probably be my next choice. Be careful of micro-stuttering though. I've still heard it's not COMPLETELY fixed up like AMD said it was.

i read otherwise. i read they are smoother than sli.

@Pedros, that rez - go with the 290s but you might have issue pushing both with an i5. try one first.

I mean, I won't deny that. I actually haven't used Crossfire, I'm using SLI right now though. Just from what I had seen and read, people were still complaining about Crossfire and it's compatibility/microstutter and such.

Oh right. I was more referring to AMD as a whole but it seems that Crossfire on the 290/X is definitely much better.

7900 series are much better as well now. I have no issue with BF3, C3, and C2. not tried crossfire in any other game. I want to try BF4 but I am getting ready for my 290.biggrin.gif

edit: on the contrary . . . i see some complaining with stutter in nvidia due to driver.

these stutter issue is like the rest , when it s an amd card it s a sin , when it s an nvidia card it must be a bad driver install or something , for god sake stop looking for excuse . No brand will garante you a great experience with 2 cards , and even with one card things don't always work the way it should , no matter the brand. when you add a 2nd card you don't double the possibility of problems , it goes up exponontially with every piece of hardware you will add.
