High VRM temps (>80c) can negatively affect overclocks. They can generally reduce stability, and make the card draw more power because the VRM's are much less efficient when hot. For example, my last PC drew about 410w under full GPU load when cold; when fully warmed up (core ~ 60c, VRM 1 ~ 80c) the PC would draw about 430w.

I had a Powercolor 290x that i just sent back to The Egg for RMA today. It arrived DOA, wouldn't give video out of any of the ports even though the fan would spin and the voltages checked out on a multimeter.

 

Not much else i can say about it til i get my replacement

Heres my 290x crossfire frame pacing as of 14.1 driver....not exactly optimal:
4770k @ 4.5ghz
Gigabyte Z87 UD5h
840 evo SSD for OS and Games
16gb ddr3 1866
stock gpu clocks, watercooled maxing at 44*C


Did a DDU clean in safe mode before these drivers


1080p single card


1080p crossfire


1440p single card


1440p crossfire

well generally yes, in overclocking you want everything as cool as possible, though VRM efficiency doesn't change as much as the core, but it still increases OC stability from better voltage filtering by keeping them very cool (under water or sub-zero).

saying that though, you don't want your chokes too cold or they stop resisting the right amount of power and you'll overvolt uncontrollably. only really a problem with nitro and helium though.

I only get that when the memory clocks I entered is unstable. when using Sapphire TrixX the display shuts of and on quickly when applying any overclocks.

Yes, it happens with me as well, I wouldn't worry about it as long as it only happens when you apply the change.
