Maybe I missed the boat but what is the vsync/sound issue? I haven't notice anything on my end
post #16082 of 43971
Im very new with this kind of stuff, i only had experience with overclocking CPU. my question is

1. what is the best software for GPU overclocking? (best ocing CPU is with BIOS)
2. does GPU voltage require to set manually like CPU ocing?
3. what is the max temp and VOLTAGE for GPU ocing?

im planning to get MSI r9 290 gaming. so i need ur tips. thanks

The 13.12 WHQL are probably your best bet. The sound thing is new with the 14.1s I believe.

1. MSI Ab and Trixx.

2. yes, depends on your clocks, for ~ 1050/1350 lets say you wont need any volts most of the times, even for 1100, for 1150/1500 ~ 100mV + you will need.

3. Do not go over 85c on the core, and 85-90 max on vrm, for best oc results, try to keep it around 75

Ugh I hate Craigslist. I said $550 firm and some guy told me he was interested and asked where we could meet, we agreed on a location and time and I was getting ready to leave when he tells me "Yeah I can only pay $400 for your 290." And he tells me this after I get dressed and ready and I had the card in the original packaging.

so, for 1050/1350 no need to touch the volts. what do u mean 100mV? did u mean 0.1?

Lol, I think I'll pass on that, I paid $412 for my card on Amazon ($400 +next day delivery). I thought my deal was fair too, I even offered to toss in a TX750 power supply I don't use.

for the folks talking about water cooling.

I have a XSPC RX240 (push) and a Alphacool XT45 280(push/pull) cooling both gpu and cpu. I wouldn't mind having more radiator at all. I understand the rule of thumb of 120mm of rad per part. That is fine and handy if you want temperatures under control. However if you doing water cooling for the benefits of better cooling then that rule must be thrown out the window. Under full load (cpu and gpu) my liquid temp gets to 40c. Gpu core temp gets to around 58c and Cpu temp stays below 54c. Ambient temperatures are kinda high at around 24c.

Everything is safe and being cooled well. Keep in mind this is one gpu and one cpu. If you have 2 gpus and 1 cpu my radiator space would BARELY be enough.

Keep in mind I have the AMD FX 8320@5ghz which puts out a good bit more heat than other cpus.

So here is what I recommend.

1 Cpu+ 2 GPU's = at least 500+mm radiator space
1 CPu+ 1 GPU= at least 360mm radiator space

Best results 1Cpu+2Gpus= 600+mm radiator Space (two 360's, or a 480+240, or 360+240)

What about a thick 420 + 480 both in push/pull wink.gif
