GPU with UEFI GOP BIOS, you can use Windows 8 Fast Boot feature. No difference in performance except faster boot.

When its a non stress full game AKA L4D2, TF2 or something in those regards teh system does great and plays for hours on end. But when it comes to a game that loads ALL my system it will hard lock with the GPU fans ( all 3 of them ) reving up to 100% and i have to shut down the system. I know this isnt the TYPICAL indication of lower power for a system but when iv tested the parts separate they do fine. I can get through 20 pass of linx without error and heaven and furmark both run perfect for hrs.

What I also did is because i thought its a cooling problem was get some fans for my GPU's and rad for the CPU. Im running 4 of the coolermaster sickleflo fans which move a bunch of air. although producing alot of noise.

This could be a motherboard fault as well but I would have figured that to give me errors with Linx as well.
Not rly :/ the R9 290x on the average game takes around 350-370 of watts per card. So lets say base off of the 350 mark for the average game and thats 1050 watts just in GPU alone. Now my 4820K none overclocked is 130watts max so thats 1180 roughly, now factor in mainboard, ram, cd/dvd, cooling, my 2 HDD's and my 3 SSD's and i bet u im reaching the limits.




While im off at work im going to load memtest to make sure this isnt a memory leak problem.

You should invest in to a kill-a-watt or some way of checking actual wattage being pulled from the wall. Many people are running multiple cards and not getting that kind of power draw. Newegg tested up to 4 way under full load full system and was under 1300watts (stock clocks of course) but 3 way left plenty of room. I have the same setup as you almost identically hahaha and no issues.

How do I know if my GPU's have that UEFI GOP BIOS? Are they official BIOS'? If so where can I get them.

Hey owners of the 290x, would you recommend me getting rid of my 2x 7950's for the 290x? I can get $650 for both of my cards. Both cards is watercooled, so i'm selling them with it. Would I see similar performance? Thanks peeps.

Gigabyte have 290x bios on theire site that are Uefi compatible. My friend already flashed it. Got fast boot with windows 8 working.

Just sayin' we all saw this... some just didn't want to admit it wink.gif

Lets hope Mantle actually shows up in January. Let me find all those posts that were talking trash to me and name calling saying it would be here December... lulz!!!

So I believe I figured out the problem I was having. For some reason afterburner was resetting the power limit in overdrive to 0. I updated to the latest AMD drivers and it seems to have fixed the issue. Now with the power limit set to 50% my core clock stays at 1200.

Keep in mind though that power pulled from the wall is greater than the power the PSU is supplying, which is what they are rated for. Killawatts don't address this.

For example, my old TX850 is rated for about 80% efficiency near full load, so if my PC is pulling ~800w from the wall then the PSU is supplying 800 x .80 = ~640w which leaves a good amount of headroom.

Now I went and bought an 865w UPS for my PC, but my new PSU is rated about 92% efficiency under load. This means I can have about 800w on the 12v rail, which is enough for my 3770k, pump, HDD, fans, and 2 decently OC'ed 290's.

My current rig (in sig, 3770k @ 4.6, 290, and lots of fans) currently maxes out at about 520w from the UPS, which with the ~80% efficiency means that my PSU is supplying ~415w.
