[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 1576

post #15751 of 43911
I just ordered an ASUS 290x DCII card. Should have it within 3 weeks. This was about the only card I could get my hands on for a decent price. I really only wanted a 290 and reference would have been fine, but they were ridiculously priced.

What's the deal with the DCII? Are they good cards? Any chance for Hynix memory on the 290x?

As far as I know, the DCUII has Elpida memory and the cooler is not the best- they just took the 780Ti cooler and modified it slightly.

I couldn't get a Tri-X for another 2 mos. Guess I'll have to try my luck. I'll sell it on FleaBay to miners if it sucks. LOL

Where are you located battleaxe? I am in the market for an MSI Gaming 290, I know the launch price was £330 so I am waiting for it to drop to that ballpark from £360 also to come back in stock, stock comes through in dribs and drabs.
As for the tri-x there is some stock at overclockers in the uk. (or was when I checked earlier)

What do you mean by "not supported"? Does it not run at all or does it just give you a message saying the driver was not verified because it is a beta driver?

Umm is it normal that my reference card runs at 90°C at idle while at stock fan profile and clocks? I just randomly checked it. I guess this is the reason for my random idle crashing with black screen and fan running at 100%... Well atleast I can finally put it under water on friday.

Edit: Only goes down to 50°C with the fan at 100%. Seems to be a real sloppy mount on the stock cooler.

No, that's not normal. My MSI did not do that before I put it on water.
