We might just be in luck here: http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/radeon-r9-290x.html (about 1/3 down)

"Display Connectors

Everything you need for your PC

Built in HDMI 1.4a with 2.0 support, DisplayPort 1.2 and Dual DVI-D"

I know about that, somebody pointed that Club3D site about 2 months ago. I did email the support and the reply was "no support for HDMI 2.0" too bad I deleted the email. You can try yourself and point the website quote which is lil misleading.

HDMI 2.0 standard was finalized on Sep 6, 2013, too late for the latest graphic cards already in production. Hopefully some AIB partner will add in on or we have to wait for the next generation cards.

EDIT
BTW The Kogan TV you posted about only says 4 HDMI connections. Not all TV support the HDMI 2.0 and they always point it out when they do.

I think a better choice is Vizio 50 inch 4K UHD $999.99 (MSRP) with Full-Array LED backlit and supports the latest HDMI standard. Now we only have wait hopefully some graphic card will support it soon

Even 70 is too high with water cooling. They should be in 40s range. You probably mistakenly using thinner thermal pad, that's why you're seeing 100C. If Phobya 7W/mK thermal pad can cool better, get that one.

I'm not much of a bencher, nor have I clocked my 290 heavily (1. Don't need it yet and 2. my vram doesn' like to be clocked (?), so I run a simple 1100 / 1250 with no voltage increase, +50% power limit).

I did, however, pick up 3dmark last year when it was on sale on Steam.

I ran FS-E to heat the card up a bit from cold boot, and then just ran the full gambit of tests.

GPU max: 47C
VRM1 max: 48C
VRM2 max: 41C

These results seem consistent with what I've seen after a good gaming session with a heavily modded Skyrim with .ini tweaks.

I have to mention, I did use a dab of TIM when installing the pads on the VRM's. But mind you, you just need a very small amount, because like with CPU coolers: too much is almost as bad, if not worse, than too little or none at all.

TIM is just used to take up the place of air in places not entirely smooth (air is a very bad thermal conductor),.

The way I did it on my VRM's is I took the cap of my MX4 (wonderful stuff) and touched the VRM bit with the end of the spout and whatever TIM stuck on would do. I then placed my pads, put a dab of MX4 on on the VRAM chips* and installed the block.


* Aquacomputer Kryographics blocks don't use thermal padding on the VRAM, so there a dab of TIM is enough.

Wouldn't be surprised if I had used the wrong pads I do stupid stuff like that often lol. I'll order some of the Phobya 7w/mk pads, as you say they are better than EK's anyway. The phobya 7w/mk pads seem to come in 3 depth sizes (0.5-1.5mm) anyone know what size(s) are correct?

I know from experience that I used a 1mm one for my AC block on the VRM2 spot. Stock was 0,5, but possibly due to machining error it didn't quite make fully enough contact. In contact with Sven from Aquacomputer, he mentioned other customers had similar issues, and also that thicker might suffice, if not too stiff a pad.

The Phobya's are pretty pliable, and I seem to recall EK blocks use 1mm for VRM and 0,5mm for VRAM (or was it the other way around? might want to check on EK's site if it's listed...)

I posted this up on reddit, and someone was saying that my PSU is overspecced (750 watts). With how he's talking, I was wondering if someone else can read it and try to make sense out of it?

the thing is a beauty. what's the id of the tubing?

This gem just popped up at a swedish retailer, wonder how well it would cool the R9 290/290X's, appears to be a pretty solid chunk of aluminium cooling the VRMs/RAM chips thumb.gif


Link for those of you interested, not much info available though...

I use the same way to apply very small amount of TIM on the VRMs. thumb.gif

I have 4 MX4 which 3 of them still sealed untouched. I bought them a couple years ago. Somehow it doesn't work well. The Shin-Etsu G751 that have half thermal conductivity than MX4 worked well for me. This is why I hesitate to use MX4. I'll only use Shin-Etsu or IC Diamond 7 TIM.

Excellent thank you biggrin.gif

On a side note, I take it the thermal paste that comes with EK's waterblocks is non-electrically conductive? Just want to make sure it's safe to use on the VRAM.

Wow super sexy... That's an xtreme Iv. I haven't seen any info about it anywhere else though. Veeery nice VRM/VRAM cooling.
