Guys, any thoughts on the Asus R9 290 DCII or the MSI R9 290 Gaming cards? Gonna hit the order button this evening if there's nothing wrong with either of them!

Yep I was referring to aftermarket coolers for reference cards. I bought an unlockable Gigabyte more than a month ago, it's precious now tongue.gif

Nothing wrong on either.

ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II OC Video Card Review [H]ardOCP

Personally I'd choose the DCUII for the back plate.

MSI has a quieter fan on the Gaming.

I just got my stock R9 290 (Gigabyte) and it seems I am not able to overclock the memory at all.

I can even undervolt the gpu and still overclock the core at the same time. But no matter the voltages I cannot overclock the memory. Adding even +5mhz to the stock memory clock brings performance down and some more crashes the card. I've tried upping both the core voltage and aux voltage (msi afterburner beta 18). Has anyone else experienced this? Does this make any sense at all?

Core is clocking nicely (-50mv, ~1.1v, 1050MHz) but I am planning to go water cooling for this so it would be great to get more out of the memory also.

Could you update me to water? You missed it last time I wrote it tongue.gif

Going from the block to the rad in a straight line? Nope. Unless you wanted to restrict the path from the rad to the cpu-block. And after all of that was figured out, I realized I was 2-3cm short of tube. Had to get a 90. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Wouldn't be me PSU noisy with one Tri-X OCed and 4560K OCed?
I'm planning to buy Cooler Master V700 (W).
Will have also good efficiency?

So I just bought THIS VRM heatsink from PPCS to use w/ my H55 mod on my 290X, and I just received it.

I gotta say the quality of that heatsink is good, altho the mounting holes doesn't match, one hole would be off by a 3-5mms. which is actually pretty doable in terms of drilling a second hole on one side.

Imma do the work probably tomorrow and see how it goes. but If I can make it work VRM temps should go down significantly. hopefully atleast on the levels of what the stock cooler is achieving right now which is 65C at 75% fan speed, but I honestly think this would cut that down even further. hopefully the thickness of thermal pad I bought is enough.


Now I gotta buy a 80mm fan to use on it too xD

I purchased my 290 today from WTCR for around $460 CAD, a Sapphire Tri-X 290. Hopefully it'll be in tomorrow for some mining goodness!

 

After it's paid itself off with mining, I'm planning to put it in my main machine for gaming.

Good luck with that. Last quote said a 290 running for 6 months straight will pay for itself with the current difficulty...
