Hahah, how many things do you have plugged into that Killawatt?

To put things into perspective - 4670K at 4.7 1.4v, 5 3TB HD, 1 SSD, corsaid h80, 5 fans, corsair tx750, R9 290X @ 1200, 1625 +150mv ...now that draws ~650watts with full load. Cearly you are either not using the killwatt properly or there is much more plugged into it then just your pc. And I really hope you are not just making these numbers up. Since they absolutely don't make any sense. cheers

I'm thinking about selling my 780 ti and buying a couple r9 290's or a 290x and adding another one in a few weeks, since I'd like to start mining. Which cards would run coolest in crossfire? I've never used AMD or multi card setups and I'm not really sure what to expect, is it very buggy? I've been reading lots of contradictory information. Are you guys having any problems with stuttering, etc? Has the black screen issue been fixed? Does AMD have an easy way to overclock monitors? I'm sure all these questions have been beat to death but I really don't want to sift through 1800 pages lol.

I upgraded from a GTX 770 that I sold for $330 to a 290X at $550 - in close to 2 months I already made the money to cover the upgrade, so go for it. You will need good spacing between the cards and great airflow in your case, if you go with open air coolers.

You'll have to do some research if you want to make an educated decision on whether or not to start mining.  To make your sifting a little quicker use the search function for the thread. 

 

For LTC mining specific questions head here:  http://www.overclock.net/t/1398250/official-tutorial-how-to-start-mining-litecoins

 

I can't answer all your questions but I can tell you what I know...

 

If you're not going to run under water then it may be hard to keep them cool, especially if they'll be mining.  The Powercolor PCS+ has a triple slot cooler on it and seems to perform the best from what I've seen in this thread.  Xfire them can turn into an issue because they are end up being so close together.  Sapphire Tri-X seems to be the next most popular card.  Guys with Xfire will likely chime in to tell you there experiences.  I know one member was having a hard time keeping ASUS DC2 290s cool in Xfire.  Haven't seen much of anything about the HIS IceQ or XFX Double D cards.

 

People seem to be having good luck with the multi-card setups, but they can have their issues with AMD or Nvidia...it's more work than a single GPU.  Biggest issue right now seems to be Beta Drivers, but the 13.12 are very solid for everyone.

 

My card is pushed to the brink for a reference 290, 1295/1700, and it runs smooth as butter. I haven't had any stuttering issues personally, but this is with only 1 card.  I can say I don't recall seeing anyone complain about stuttering since I've been active in this thread for the last few weeks.

 

I do believe the black screen issue was a fairly small batch of cards right after release; Haven't seen many people talking about it.

 

Don't know about OC monitors.

 

Best of luck to you with your potential upcoming project :helmetsmi

Cearly you are either not using the killwatt properly or there is much more plugged into it then just your pc. And I really hope you are not just making these numbers up. Since they absolutely don't make any sense. cheers

Currently plugged in:

2x 140mm fans
8x 120mm fans (some LED lighting)
1x 200mm fan
1x H110 water pump
2x Gigabyte 290 Windforces xfire 1150 / 1400 (50% PL + 50mv)
1x 4670k @ 4.5ghz 1.325v
2x 4GB G Skill Trident X 2400mhz
5x USB devices Razor LED mech Keyboard etc...
1x DVDRW drive
2x Storage HDD
1x SSD

So yea I am only reading numbers on my wall meter and the largest I've spotted playing BF4 on a 64 multi map heavy battle was 1537 draw from the plug. Also, my tests previously indicated that with a 1000w PSU i was able to oc EITHER - my GPU's or my CPU. Not both. Both were 100% in 2 hour sessions of bf4 under the same condition, same drivers etc. As soon as I would run both together I would spontaneously restart within 5 - 10 minutes.

Since installed my new 1200w (peaking at 1300w under heavy loads...) I have replicated the same test - 2 hour bf4 multi 64 map session with both OC's in place running 100% stable. Same drivers etc.

You tell me if you would draw a different conclusion..?

EDIT: To add - I do have to run all my case fans at 100% to create the powerful negative vortex to suck all the hot air out of the case with the xfire set up (especially overclocking..) so I am sure that is drawing much more power than other users...

just your power cable to your rig or your monitors and speakers as well?

monitors and speakers can use as much as a couple hundred watts, more or less depending on size and backlight power.

Thanks guys, I will be doing tons of research into mining before buying anything. I really just wanted to know what to expect from crossfire and heat output. Mining sounds fun but gaming is my primary concern. I have all the fan slots filled in my Phantom 410, but I'm not sure it will be enough to cool 2 of these.

lol I doubt a few fans will help.

My single reference R9 290 is able bring up my CPU temps up to 36 degrees from 28, and that's with 11 Gentle Typhoons and 4 radiators

I don't know the exact temp it's running at since I switch to iGPU while mining, but I its somewhere around 50 for the gpu and 70 for the vrm
