EVGA doesn't make AMD cards though. I would definitely be interested in a 290x Classified :D

 

I think XFX allows it too, as long as you live in the USA and email them before tampering with it.

 

I know it's possible to successfully remove the tamper seals. I just like the fact that Powercolor openly claims that they won't void your warranty for watercooling. To me it's a reason to choose their company over others to give my money to for reference cards. Reference is reference, there's not much to consider besides warranty and stock coolers. For watercooling, the cooler doesn't matter....

 

With how scarce and pricey 290x's have become, i don't know if i'll be able to get another Powercolor anytime soon. The XFX Double D's seem to be the most commonly available and reasonably priced lately. So i might just order one of those in the meantime. I still need to order my WD Black 4TB and another SSD also. I was planning on Raid0-ing a cpl 250GB Samsung EVO's, but since i bought my EVO i've learned about the TLC memory and how it's not good to raid them. So now i'm thinking about either just getting a single larger EVO or a cpl 250GB Pro's instead.

It's definitely Elpida. Hynix cards don't Black-Screen. 
 
Installing a new version GPU-Z will tell him though

 

How is it "Acceptable Business Practice" For GPU Manufacturers to release two completely separate products with the exact same model and pricetag? I don't get how this is allowed!!!!

 

Reference Hynix cards are what 290x's are advertised to be, seems like a 50/50 chance of Hynix or Elpida. Elpida is plagued with problems. They are two completely separate products and should be sold as such!!!

Yeah it really does. Especially since now that i've flashed a few different BIOS to the card, and the mysterious error's my mobo was showing are consistent with a bricked bios flash. 

 

I wish it wasn't my first 290x, then i would've had the foresight to try flashing a bios to it before rma. I could've easily done it from my 775 board =\

 

I'm pretty confident that some1 bricked both bios and rma'd it to NE who sold it to me. You know what they say about hindsight....

 

Edit: Also, in preparation to RMA, i've flashed my bios back to stock. Also as a "Hail Mary" i cleared drivers with DDU again and upgraded to the 14.1 Beta like i've seen a few people recommend. I'm gonna try to leave my pc running for a day or so to see if i get any black screens. I haven't installed GPU-Z or any other program except amd catalyst. I've already run a few stress tests (AVP, Firestrike, Valley, Intel Burn Test) and no Blackscreen yet. So i got my fingers crossed. The GPU's been getting hot as Hades while testing. Took all of 20 seconds in any of the GPU tests to get the GPU Diode to 80+C and GPU VRM2 to 70+C. 

 

Update: Black Screeeeeeeen!!!! Back on the laptop. I've exhausted every option. RMA is all that's left

I used to play with my phone a lot, and then I put it to stock rooted because I was going to be messing with NV items and try to unlock frequency bands. Well, the guy who was going to give me all the information hasn't message me since August... So I guess I should go ahead and get an updated ROM. heh.

On a side note, I should be going to UPS and picking up my lense! For some reason they are delivering it to me tomorrow even though it's been here since last night.... buttkick.gif

I didn't jump on the Samsung train til the GS3. I been on Android since it's first day in existence though:D

 

G1 => G2 => G2X => GS3

 

I got the G1, G2, & G2X (LG P999) on release day for all 3. I loved the Open-Source/Linux aspect of Android when it first came out. 

 

Edit: jamey, congrats on the new camera. Maybe someday i'll spring for a rebel =)

 

I always used xda forums for all my phone hacking resources. Can't imagine there's any info you can't find there

Hmm, Didnt know this "gpu-z" trick to test the memory.. Mine says "Hynix".. ? :S
I was under the impression that Nvidia uses Elpida or Samsung? is Hynix = Samsung?

I guess I will know for sure later this week when my water block arrives smile.gif
