Well, I have done it and sold my baby overclockers to a miner since it looked unlikely that Asus was having my motherboard fixed within the next 2 weeks. Please forgive me tongue.gif

Arizonian, I may well go ahead and get 2 reference 290s if the price drops soon so don't just remove me from the list yet. But if I get swayed away by those green guys, I will let you know.

Edit: Listed my waterblocks for sale on the OCN marketplace if anyone is interested.

Hey people, my 290 hasn't down-clocked the memory after gaming and is sitting at 1250Mhz instead of the normal 150Mhz when idle and is hitting 68 Degress idle when it is normally at around 44 Degrees. Anyone else have this or a way to fix it?

What's up party people? Anyone have an idea what the stock cooler VRAM and VRM thermal pad materials are and/or what their thermal conductivity ratings are?

I'm especially interested in the gray stripe that makes contact with VRM1 and how it compares to Fujipoly Extreme (11w/mK) thermal pads.

Thanks!

I know mine wouldn't downclock at 120 hz but does at 60 hz.
