[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 1082

post #10811 of 43910
Anyone been able to find any of the r9 280x and up cards recently at prices that shouldn't be considered illegal? I'm wanting to buy a couple and am striking out bad. Tiger Direct had an MSI limited to one per at a normal price but they won't ship to APO.... :-(

So I just got my Asus 290x and have used it for a day... but with the prices I see these going for on ebay, I'm really debating of selling it and getting a 780Ti while the demand is still high tongue.gif

Haha, I'm in the same boat. I just got a PowerColor 290 last night (didn't check to see if it can unlock yet), but 780Ti was one of my strong options... Selling the 290 puts me in close grasp of grabbing a 780Ti...

What really grinds me is that the XSPC 290/290x blocks still aren't available anywhere in the US. Meanwhile, the 780Ti block is starting to show up...

What's so good about this block? I have two EK blocks on my 290's and these are excellent.

Wtb 280x or 290:)

At original retail price. Not this 33% more crap.

Heh, a couple things (for me anyway).

1) Main one, the multi-port connector.

2) I'm anal... All my blocks, rads, and such are XSPC and based on the newer designs. I particularly like their products (with the exception of the design flaws on the 7970 block - which aren't present on the 290x block).

I've got nothing against the new EK blocks. I've had EK in the past without issue (the acetal ones anyway). The CSQ blocks were extremely ugly though (I hated the circles design).

Besides, the EK blocks aren't in stock anywhere either with the recent demand for these cards. I gotta wait either way, so I'd rather get what I want.

The framerate does drop every time the usage goes down..

Ok, to expand on this, here is BF4.




Any ideas? I re-installed drivers with DDU safe mode and also made sure windows had no errors...

Are you guys w/ multiple GPUs able to set specific settings seperately somehow? I'm using GPU Tweak (which ive always hated) with flashed Sapphire/XFX cards and GT only "recognizes" the bottom card (this was an issue since last year) when not in crossfire mode.

Id like to have different settings for each card depending on what im using them for.

I tried AB17 and voltage tweaking is greyed out (unlocked enabled voltage control) - is there other settings i need to mess around with?

The question was not, "What do the squiggly lines mean?!"

Its, how do I fix it?
