The Phantom 630 is a different beast all together with a plethora of watercool options. If anyone is looking for a case with multiple options, I'd recommend looking into the 630.

Thanks for the help smile.gif

8267 physics @ 4.9 : http://www.3dmark.com/fs/1151742

9716 physics @ 5.05 : http://www.3dmark.com/fs/1441733

I was running 4 x 4GB of Corsair Dominator at 1866Mhz for the first test and got my G Skill 2400Mhz kit afterwards.........maybe it's your ram slowing you up?

I also believe my NB Freq was higher for the second run as well (not 100% sure)..........Might be worth checking out maybe?

Does anyone know why my memory clock is this high when idle? And why it keeps dropping? I'm running the reference cooler on a R9 290.

Can anyone shed some light on my GPU Tweak will not pick up my 4th 290x? I have uninstalled GPU Tweak, ran CCcleaner, restarted, reinstalled and still the problem exists

Nope, one 1080p. It varies between 1250MHz and 150MHz.

Just figured it out. I was streaming a 720p video in the background. Thanks for the help!

Just ordered 2 XFX R9 290 BLACK EDITION from ShopBLT.com yesterday. Seems to be the only reasonably priced merchant currently. They are out of stock on most models but do provide back orders with details of incoming inventory.
