[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 1799

post #17981 of 43923
I am running a 2500k and 2 290x.
All watercooled.
Powerdraw on my old corsair 750m (gold)
Between 550w underclocked and 900w overclocked.
On my new corsair 1200i max 800w.
You might come to 1000w under high cpu load. 1500w seems too high. Check Afterburner about vcore on gpus and downlock your gpus as a test.

At 1500w you should be able to run 4 290.
Regards Wotan

I reverted back to 13.12 drivers, and now BF4 is a lot stabler. 14.2 had way to much fps fluctuations. I was able to actually enjoy a round of conquest without stutter. 'New' rig not complete yet, but running 2 290's. Waiting on an i7.

I'm not having any stutter issues at all actually.

Seem it varies person to person.

agree. I dont experience lag on my trifire 290's when i use D3d11. but with mantle, fluctuates about 45 to 90 fps. it is more stable on d3d11.

but with mantle, i observed that CPU was utilized more than d3d11. its like 5-10% more usage,

you are only telling me stuff i already know,

I understand why i get a greater percentage increase over the faster Intel chips, I was just saying that the only difference with the 14.2 driver is more fps for me.

Don't take it personal, nobody is attacking you, they are just saying the numbers seem a bit off, and I would agree that 1500w from the wall is way to much for your system, should be topping out at around 1000w.

 

My system, 3930k @ 4.5 and two 290s@1150, two water pumps, ten fans, five HDDs will hit just over 1000w from the wall when benching, I am using a HX850w, I can not push the CPU and graphic cards at the same time, its just to much, but when gaming with cards at default and CPU at 4.5 I draw around 650w to 700w at the wall, which is fine for a 850w

 

So if I wanted to run some benchmarks with my CPU and Graphic cards at max overclock, I would probably draw around 1100 to 1200 watts from the wall.

 

So you see why others think that 1500w is a bit off for your system ?

I am getting huge benefits using Mantle with my 3930k@ 4.5. easy around 25%

 

15 minutes recording each in a full "Firestorm" 64 player server, first person spectator mode. 

Would be very hard to go back to using DX11 now. 

 

Mantle left/DX11 right
