I've removed the VRM1 heatsink and reapplied them, they're glued tight and correct but still temps shoot up to 100C.

Yes I got them all covered.

I just came from a GTX670, nVidia drivers are better and I had no issues with any updates.

I"ve still got my 670's and love them. But I think the 290's are sweet cards. Can't be beat for the money if you ask me. Kinda like the 670 (best bargain card) was when it came out if you know what I mean.

Edit: wait... you don't remember the 320 drivers? The famous card killers? Those were fun drivers.

Just use /wi4,30,8d,10 for 100mv. The offset is 6.25 mv in hexademical. So on decimal is :16*6.25=100 mv. For 50mv you need 8. For 200mv you need 20( 20=32 on dec. So 32 * 6.25=200mv)

The easy way to do changes:

Create a txt on desktop. Write
CD C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner
MSIAfterburner.exe /wi4,30,8d,10

and then save as .bat file. Eveyrtime you start this bat file msi will start with +100mv

For 50mv: 8
For 100mv:10
For 125mv:14
For 150mv:18
For 175mv:1C
For 200mv:20

I wouldn't go over this point because
1)You are close to leave the sweet spot of the ref pcb vrms efficiency
2)These commands add 200mv on top of the 100mv offset through AB gui.That means 300mv

By default /wi command apply to current gpu only. So if you have 2 or more gpus you must use /sg command. That means the command line is something like that
ex:MsiAfterburner.exe /sg0 /wi4,30,8d,10 /sg1 /wi4,30,8d,10


I tried to do this and nothing happens at all.

this is my command line

CD C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner
MSIAfterburner.exe /sg0 /wi4,30,8d,18 /sg1 /wi4,30,8d,18 /sg2 /wi4,30,8d,18

Now what I noticed is you said it adds the already 100mv so if i did 50 it would go max to 150.

You will not gonna have more than 100mv on AB. The gpu will start with +50mv and then you can add 100mv from msi. If the msi cant start with these settings something is wrong with your path file

You can always add the code on msi ab shortcut on desktop. After the target add the code for the volts

same deal with the target :/ I have 3 GPU's so i imagine that the list would be sg0, sg1, sg2 would it not?
