post #17691 of 43973
Something interesting for GB R9 290 WF3 - it seems that GB decided to reinsure (after all their cards are with the highest stock clock for the core) and set the voltage to 1.156V. My max temps with all at stock are 75 degrees for the core and 78 degrees for VRM1. I've just tried to overvolt my card with -50mV and ran heaven bench for an hour. Well, the max temp for the core was 70 degrees and 69 for VRM1... smile.gif And the card was absolutely stable and of course less noisier...

Can someone tell me how much is the stock voltage of tri-x and PCS+? smile.gif

Two out of four of these bad boys arrived at my door step today.







I'd be installing them right now if performance-pc didnt completely screw the pooch on my fittings ordered. Won't reply to my emails or phone calls. mad.gif

Very nice!

Seems like performance-pc screws up lot of orders. Makes me think twice about ordering from them again (though I haven't an issue yet). Their prices are generally lower then everyone else though.

Powercolor PCS+ 290 here. Just ran a Valley loop at stock settings. Note that stock settings for this card are 1040 core, 1350 memory, +50mV vddc.

I can't get a fixed voltage reading, it fluctuates, even with constant voltage on. So I don't quite know how to determine the precise # you're looking for.

I got thermal pad sizes for all the 290(X) water blocks for reference cards. HeatKiller and Koolance were very quick to respond to e-mail inquiries.

If you didn't catch temperature drops with Fujipoly Ultra Extreme you can see it here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1468593/r9-290-x-thermal-pad-upgrade-vrm-temperatures

Thermal pad sizes are as follows:

XSPC Razor: VRMs 1mm | RAM 1mm
EK FC: VRMs 1mm** | RAM 0.5mm
Koolance: VRMs 0.7mm* | RAM 0.7mm*
HeatKiller: VRMs 1mm | RAM 0.5mm
AquaComputer: VRMs 0.5mm | RAM only uses non-conductive TIM
*From Kooland Tech Support: As any one manufacturers card could have slight differences from another, we often include more than one thickness so that the customer can achieve the best contact on their block. Ideally you use as thin as possible, but some cards have shorter chips and demand the thicker pads.*
**EK suggests using non-conductive TIM with the VRM pads**

Koolance responded to my questions about using TIM with the thermal pads, what kind of pad they include and their specific 0.7mm thickness pads.

"Koolance Tech tech@koolance.com

12:00 PM (43 minutes ago)

We include 0.7mm and 1mm thick pads but the diagram included with the block calls for 0.7mm. We do not suggest it as we don't believe it to be necessary but there's nothing stopping you from doing it. You won't void your warranty or anything. Just make sure to get the paste nice and clean so that it doesn't drip or ooze down onto components and cause them to short.

Hello Bob,

The thermal pads we include are our own proprietary pad.

Thanks for lightning fast response again. One last question for you: Is it possible to use a different thickness thermal pad than 0.7mm? Would a 0.5mm or 1mm affect how the block mounts to the card and cause contact issues with the core?

No software can't show you the real voltage using by the card, but i decided to use for such purposes GPU-Z, cause it seems that it is closer to the reality. So i check my max voltages with it. At stock my card runs with 1.156V. max under load on 1040/1250MHz, but it is perfectly stable on 1.109V. That's why i wanted to know what are the casual voltages for other 290s. smile.gif

Well if you're looking for max voltage it's 1.220v. It's stable at less, my quiet profile is 1060 core 1450 mem +31 vddc (which is a -19 vddc from stock). I can go lower but there is no point since this quiet profile runs at 50% fan which is inaudible and <70c across the board.

Yes, i saw your max voltage. Thank you. smile.gif

And very nice temps, I must say... smile.gif This PCS+ cooling solution is one of the best i've ever seen. I love WF3 but i must admit that PCS+ is superior.
post #17699 of 43973
So what do you guys think is a safe max voltage for a 290 for everyday operation? I can control the heat, but I wonder about running max volts well into the 1.3x range for prolonged periods.

It's loud though. Noticeable at 60%, loud at 80%. At lower fan speeds it cools about the same as other customs. It does excel at cooling if you can take the noise. It's also huge, 52mm thick. And it seems optimized for high rpm cooling, wonder if that's a consequence of a fat heatsink. The Tri-X has a flat long sink and it seems to do much better at a low clocked low rpm environment, as does the MSI Gaming. I wish it had a better power delivery than 5+1+1 since it does handle high clocks temp wise.

Hi guys! I got a 290 Tri-X. Using it with the 13.12 WHQL and MSI Afterburner. Everything to default, but the CPU usage is jumping like crazy between 0-100% in Afterburner. Why?! I can't read the right usage of the GPU. Same System and drivers, with my old 7950 I don't have that issue.
I also testet the 14.1 Beta 6 driver and set up the powerlimit.

Anybody can help?
