being a desktop, you shouldn't need the intel iGPU at all, so that's one of the first things you should have disabled in BIOS. otherwise you end up with unneeded driver complexity.

original 79x0 DCII(T) and Matrix(P) cards are notoriously horrible in many ways, only a few people have been happy with theirs (though they haven't OC'ed far at all), TBH only really good in pre-assembled/OEM rigs, if they were reliable...

the newer 280X version (the two slot, not the "V2" rebadge) seemed like an improvement, but Ive never seen one on these forums let alone overclocked, does the 290X one really have a cooling issue? I'm half wondering if ASUS pulled another QC fail at not tightening the screws correctly... (the 7970DCII on release had most cards RMA'ed due to the coolers not being attached to the core)

could also mention the orig DCIIT like I had didn't cover all the memory ICs correctly, but really that shouldn't be an issue on the 290(X) as the ICs don't need much cooling at all...

I probably should not have given the impression that it is terrible.

I did do multiple testing, benches, games, and mining.

This card did hold up pretty good in BF4, I think it topped 70-72C with 70% fan( max is 80% at 3000rpm)
What I did not like is the VRMs being 10-15C higher.

I had a reference sapphire 290x, sure the blower is loud, but it really does cool the card to an extreme in any situation.

The DCII is going to be great for a casual gamer or inside a nice computer, it will cool the card in most all situations with good temps. Since I tested it to an extreme I just personally was not satisfied, this card and cooling unit is targeted for everything but the extreme potential of the card. They might as well have made it a tri-slot card, gave it some bigger heatsinks or fans and allowed it further cooling potential. (I don't even want to run OCCT for 30minutes because I'm scared to see if the cards cooling unit can actually cool it once it reaches max fan )

In all honesty, I am considering putting my own heatsinks on top of that backplate because it gets pretty hot....


On a side note, how about that GV 290 OC biggrin.gif Any of you own it / have the facts on voltage?

Can't they send my 290 Tri-X digitally through the SSD I just bought? /sarcasm. They shipped it a week earlier than I was anticipating and now for whatever reason I'm super impatient. Actually... NO take your time, I won't get to beta test a certain game again if gets here Friday. GAHHHH my head is going to explode. Get here when you get here.

Why can't I adjust voltage in MSI AB?

I've been searching for an hour, I did the unofficial overclocking crap in the config and changed all the settings in the program, even flashed an MSI bios but the voltage slider is still grayed out. All other OC programs are not running.

This is really frustrating, I can hold 1225 MHz at 40c with +162mV using GPUTweak but I want more.

Check the box for "unlock voltage control"?

Yes, I said I already changed MSI AB's settings. I tried forcing constant voltage, extending limits, disabling ULPS, the whole nine yards.

Not trying to come off rude, but this problem is all over the net with nobody posting their solutions.

All I want is a program that can give me more than 1.412mV...

Using Beta 17, but for some reason it says this version expires this Sunday.

You have a reference card yes?
I can get +100 in Afterburner with just checking the box to allow voltage control.

I just tried unlocking it and i still am limited to +100 and 1235MHz... Hmmm

Seems its broken, I am sure that MSI may fix it soon,
