VRM2: 58 C

And it was a bit fiddly to get it in, but it's very simple to do, make sure you have sinks on VRM1 as it gets quite hot and that u check the clearance from the bracket and there isn't room for massive heatsinks, those temps on VRM2 were without Heatsinks.

Ahahah this is not true.
I have prolimatech mk-26 with 2 pieces of the reference plate on vrms ( and Fujipoly Sarcon 17W/mK). 2*140mm fans on the prolimatech, 2*140mm fans on the side.
I'll post photos but i can say that, with stock voltage i achieve 55C on vrm2, 68C on vrm1.

You cannot get 78C with little heatsinks on vrm1 ( or with not heatsinks at all). The reason why i don't choose liquid aio cooler for r9 290 is bad dissipation of Vrm1.
A believable result with, i imagine, +150mV ( at least for 1200/1680), and Nzxt g10 is 95C on Vrm.

Bye

Ok guys,now I'm mad...I downloaded the new Mantle driver,installed it,restarted my PC just to make sure...I start BF4 oops...BSOD...atikmpag.sys or something so yeah driver...Ok lets try it again...It starts this time,great!Most be a one time thing!I click on options...crashes(exe stops working)...Lets try it again...same...Ok they said there is some issues with Crossfire,I turn it off,lets try it with one card...same error...I turn my second card on again and start monitoring fps on test range...-30...everything was on max,so it couldn't turn effect on,i can't see my options of course cuz than the game crashes...but i guess it's still in directx,and i lost around 30 fps...WHY?WHAT THE ........

Anyone else having core throttle after installing the 14.1 driver? I had to downclock from 1200/1500 to 1100/1400 just to make the cards stop throttling themselves. My old o/c was working fine with +100mv but even going up to +200 with this new driver it still throttles the cores.

Star Swarm only utilized one card. At least that is what I'm seeing here.

Throttle when doing what? It's pretty normal though if I'm guessing.

Have you checked the power limits are set and being applied ? Temps OK ?

I don't know why previous run with DirectX is only 120 seconds though.




Star Swarm Benchmark: DirectX (14.1 beta 1.6) vs. Mantle (14.1 beta 1.6)

Star Swarm Updated
An update for Star Swarm is now available on Steam. Changes include the following:

Removed activation requirement
Changed default duration to 360 seconds
Added DeferredContexts flag to ini files (disabled by default - use at your own risk)
Default scenario changed to 'Follow' to yield more consistent results per run
Changed 'Follow' scenario to follow a different unit to help prevent crazy spinning
Throttled frame rate on the launcher to reduce CPU overhead while it's sleeping
Added tooltip descriptions to the scenarios

Saw these changes on steam smile.gif

Yes and it is frustrating the crap out of me. I'm thinking it's something to do with the i7 cpu's cos i have been searching and we seem to be the main one's affected. Turning off hyperthreading has some effect. But to be honest it seems pretty random. At first i was down clocking in games, then i sorted that out and i wouldn't downclock at the desktop.

I think msi afterburner might be having issues with the driver as well, fan tachometer no longer shows for me, and if i click "enable overdrive" in ccc it kicks something into action in conjunction with msi afterburner runing, before ticking that in ccc i was not downclocking at the desktop, after ticking it i now downclock but still get drops with core clock and gpu usage, although nowhere near as bad as before. I was dropping between 0 and 100% gpu usage and core clock was going down to 300 in game (bf4) now i'm dropping to 75% gpu usage and around 800 core clock on and off.

Something is off and it is really starting to grate on my nerves after having to replace a faulty r9 290 windforce. This was happening on previous drivers for me as well. It is also not temp related, not going over 80 degrees and the vrm's are staying under 84 and 62 respectively.

We are not the only ones, it seems to be pretty prevalent, hopefully it's something that can be sorted. FTR i didn't have these issues with a reference r9 290 and i think it only affects the non reference cards.
