One card runs a H90, the other 4 use h55's. Can't beat 54C mining temps.












00Smurf, IMPRESSIVE SYSTEM! Congratulations! Hope you have a good powersurge / nobreak... smile.gif

One question, did you use standard H90 / H55 mounting system? or you created some kind of adaptation to screw to the PCB?

Thx for the encouraging post! smile.gif

Quick question for you guys.. I just put both of my 290s under water with EK acetal blocks. Now I hear it isn't out of the ordinary for VRM1 to be hotter than VRM2 due to the core being more demanding. But, it kind of caught me off guard when I noticed that VRM1 is 18C hotter than 2. VRM2 is at 48C while 1 is at 66C... But, it is the exact same on both of the cards according to GPU-Z. If this is normal please let me know because I'm thinking about pulling the blocks off of the cards and checking them out. Thanks.

Those VRM temps seem high. is that under full load or just idleing? I hve the Kollanve block and my VRM temps idle at 26 and under full load around 55 for vrm1 and 38 for vrm2 (2 hours play of BF4)

It is while they are mining. At idle they both sit at 31C on both cards. Wonder if mining is stressing the VRM1 more than 2?

Could anyone with a TRI-X 290x upload its Bios? As it appears, flashing it is the solution to get rid of coil whine with Accelero + PWM. biggrin.gif

What's interesting is I'm running R9 290s x 3 and with watercooling mine are hitting loads of about 900-950W gaming with a mild overclock of +70mV @ 1150/1350. Havent checked with Furmark...wont dare and dont see the need. Games like crysis 3, which in my past experience pool the most wattage hit the 900-950 W range. You can see the rest of my rig in the sig with an OCed i7 4770K.

When I was running stock (3 x R9 290s) in Crysis 3 I was hitting about 850-900 W *usually more in the 850W range - really feel that the watercooling decreases leakage quite a bit...i think some websites have shown this using the G10 NZXT aftermarket cooler and waterblocks.
