I'm starting to worry I did something wrong with the waterblock though since my vrm1 just hit 90c in furmark xtreme burn in test.

I know furmark is known as a power virus but I'd think 90c is crazy high. That highlander guy was saying his hits 80c also though.

I usually never go over 60-65c in games on VRM1 though and both vrms idle @ 30c

I don't think I could have done the block install wrong though since all you do is cut the thermal pads to fit (the mem ones are pre-cut for ek blocks)

I made sure I used the correct thickness ones for the vrm like it said, and cut the strip to fit and applied thermal paste between the vrm and the pads like it said. Wondering if I should have used paste on both sides of the pad though?

I honestly wouldn't touch furmark, it does nothing but heat up your card. If you want to check for stability, gaming is your best bet(Heaven is good too). Also remember when I am benching I am running fan profile at 90%

Idk how mining relates to furmark but i'd be curious to see what you get on it.
can you also run furmark on xtreme burn in ?

I put some of the EK thermal paste in between the vrm and the thermal pad like it said in the instructions. I'm wondering if it would have helped to put it in between the block and the thermal pad also?

It seems 80c vrm temps under mining/furmark are normal however. Makes me wonder if these things would explode on the reference cooler? Whats the max safe temp for these vrm's anyway ?

Yeah I also did use EK paste under the pads. But now in retrospect I would guess paste on top of the pads would help aswell. Typical to not think things through when building biggrin.gif

Yea you are right, I need to just uninstall it. It's really not a good example cause the highest i've ever seen my VRM1 gaming is 70c so that's atleast 20c less than furmark. It's funny furmark doesn't heat my core up much higher than gaming though, maybe 5c?

I heard furmark is throttled by amd/nvidia drivers too and it seems like it is cause I noticed when I run it the voltage doesn't get as high as when i'm actually gaming.


I see a random forum post while googling about the vrms on these 290/x's and it said the vrms can stand 125c.

So 70c gaming should be perfectly fine


WAIT: I just realized you said you are on stock cooling still!? and your vrm with 1370mV is 50c? I don't see how that is possible, what are your core temps while gaming?

I was speaking atm with Bang4Buck on Google+ under YT chanell , he is hitting 1220 and 1650 on mems , and kombusting or furmarking make him go up to 90 on VRM1 and low 40s on VRM2 , and he confirm the VRM on 290 or 290x can go up to 120 without no probs , i manage to get some info out Polish specialist forum , and they confirm that VRM2 its the VRAM power and VRM1 is runing GPU , and even on stock hitsink VRM2 dont go above 80 because of low power draw , so i think we have nothing to worry about , untill we hit 120c xDDDD , witch there is no way , i was just playing some bf4 on max settings , VRM1 hit max 58 and VRM2 42 , with 60C over to reach Tmax of this VRM's we can be realy calm and have some mor fun with OCing ;P

Yes, Crossfire should work with risers. They only risers anyway, it's like connected directly to the physical slot. Make sure you're using correct PCIe slot though.

BTW, regarding VRM temp, whenever VRM temp reach their max operating temp, the card will throttling. So, don't worry, you won't burn your card.

I hate miners now. Now I need to wait 1 month+ to get water block for my cards. tongue.gif

I am going to ask my colleagues at work tomorrow (just to make sure I'm not providing you the wrong information)...

Its confirmed on guru3d as and AMD drivers for they true audio Co procesro , so i was close tongue.gif , not exactly for HDMI but its alow Mantle to creat real sound in co operation with this Co-procesor , to put it short , EAX in AMD style , welcomback 100% positioning sound ;P

Core temps never reached pass 77C @ 70% fan speed on a warm day playing BF 4 for hours on end. Here is my fan profile. And yes reference cooling smile.gif 24/7 clocks at 1200/1500 using Asus Stock bios. I play CS:GO, BF 4, Skyrim, Batman Origins, and more all game stable at those clocks.

It does get loud with my aggressive fan profile but I am headphone gamer so I don't hear anything.

Guys, vrms are rated to 120c, but do not exceed 85 if you want to still have some general efficiency left. Ideal is around 50-60, the vrm's lose alot of their power efficiency - producing noise/lower stability when they go over 80-85c.

Try to keep them ~ 50-60c if you can for best oc results.

Hey guys I've just got a R9 290x Gigabyte version and I'm getting graphical artifacts and crashes in most games and artifacts in windows in some cases? It has a EK waterblock on it, I've been trying to make it work but I'm coming up empty. Any ideas?
