What more if you run this in X-fire or Tri-fire? devil.gif I guess it doesn't matter if you are using a watercooling setup and the ambient temp results will be the same? rolleyes.gif

Don't let a watercooling setup trick you into thinking that they aren't putting out lots of heat either. It's putting out the same amount of heat. Just with more air flow over a wide area makes it feel cooler in a when you put your hand in front of the fans.

My brief experience with wasting money and time mining made the radiator actually get pretty warm. A pontiac heater core. When you step into the room after it's been running for a while you DEFINITELY know that it is putting out lots of heat. Also my power supply fan going haywire is another indication that it is working hard.

It warms my room up with my watercooling setup. I have to keep a window open in sub zero temps (not fully, depend on temp), to keep from cooking

i run 4x way crossfire, all cards are watercooled EK, just for cooling those cards using 3x360 rads 60mm thicknes, 2xD5 pumps at 4 speed smile.gif all cards overclocked 1000/1500 +30mv, and the mining temperatures is 49C on core and 63C on vram smile.gif and it makes room damn hot, need to open window smile.gifdevil.gif all system takes ~1500W from wall biggrin.gif

I'm speechless. wha-smiley.png Thanks for pointing out the load (1500W) for running 4-way X-fire setup. thumb.gif

Powercolor PCS+ r9 290 or Sapphire tri-x? it seems that sapphire had more good response compare to other 290. but, im very attracted with the powercolor's backplate biggrin.gif

Question regarding power supplies- If my system, under load using Crysis 3, BF4, 3dmark/11 never draws more than ~420W from the wall, I can get away with a 550W PSU, correct? I am considering upgrading the PSU in my SG08 to an S12G-550. I was considering the 650, but with the lack of space in the case and extra cables the higher power unit comes with, I'd rather drop to the 550W.

For reference, the 600W PSU in the Silverstone is 80Plus Bronze rated. Trouble with it is the low 12v, drops to 11.4V under load. Unless GPU-Z shouldn't be trusted for 12v monitoring?

If space is an issue, get a modulated power supply (removable cables). I have an Antec 620m Power supply that I love.

If you don't have plans of doing X-fire in the near future, i will not suggest getting more than 600W PSU if you only pulling 420W at your OC settings to save money for your next upgrade.

My best tip is to get a high efficiency and very good quality PSU if you really want a PSU upgrade as i have been told before by a PSU guru. thumb.gif

A 550 watts is enough if you dont overvolt
