Pretty loud. If you don't game with head set that can be bothersome. However at uber 55% was no louder than my 690 at full load.

They're not capped. The two onboard BIOS 'quite' is capped 40% and Uber at 50%.

You can raise the threshold fan control with AMD Overdrive. It will reach max set fan speed by the time it hits 95c. It will dynamically lower core clock once it hits the temp threshold set. From what I read as temps go down the fan will auto adjust lower as well. You can even raise the temp threshold as 95c is suggested as comfortable. Not sure on temp limit though and how much she can really take.

Hmm i was told wrong then. I was under the assumption you had to modify the bios to get fans to go over 55%. But ya, dont think id put the slider above 55% anyways wow lol.

Pretty much. This is why right after ordering my 290x, I also put down a few bucks on a longer hdmi cable and an extension cord for my mouse. Gonna keep the pc in a different room. ;p

This is what I was expecting honestly. The VisionTek 7970 I have right now can do 1250 core clock and 1750 on memory and that's with a waterblock. Still would like to hit 1300 with a 290X though.

looking forward to your guys' overclocking attempts! thumb.gif
