Both my 290x's are Elpida. No black screens at all. wink.gif

just a general question about video card cooling, but how do you know if you are cooling the VRAM properly? I have a 6950 that was cooled by the air running thru the heatsync. (No contact). While my R9s are mining I plan on using my 6950 for daily usage, was wondering if I could get away without any heatsyncs. The VRM is burning when I touch it. Maybe a piece of cardboard acting as a shroud would help? I eventually plan on replacing the 6950 with a R9 290 using the same universal GPU block.

I was at Microcenter today getting some blue ray discs and I know one of the guys int he pc area...anywyas I was chatting with him about some stuff as the store just opened...he also showed me the order of asus 290's and 290x's they just got in lol...about 10 mins later two guys rolled up first customer for him of the day. They eached purchased a 290 and 290x as its one per customer only lol microcenter is selling them for 100$+ less than online...so I grabbed one of 290s asus ref. cards from him for 460$ as newegg has them at 570$ figured I could make a quick buck or maybe just keep it idk

Sorry if this has been answered already but, is it possible to increase the VRAM voltage for 290X with Elpida Memory?
Is it ok to run different VRAM clocks on 290X CFX?

Thank you.

No VRAM voltage control but you can do different memory clocks, only i don't see the point.
