[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 1802

post #18011 of 43907
Curious what everyone runs for their daily overclock? Even though I'm under water, I typically leave my voltage at default. My card can do 1110 / 1400 at default voltage and my Core / VRM1 runs 46c after an hour or so of BF4 . I could run it at 1200/1500 with +100mv, but it seems overkill and I don't want to sacrifice the longevity of my card.

Thats exactly same clocks my card gets with +100mV. Best ratio of performance and temperatures I've found from the ridiculous number of benchmarks I've ran in the last few weeks.

I've compared all my benchmark scores from 1200/1500 to my best clocks which are near, or at, 1300/1700 +200mV; depending on benchmark.

The higher clocks give me 5% better scores. Not really worth the extra voltage, temperatures, and wear on the card over the long haul IMO.

I run 1205/1437 on +168mV daily. Temps don't go above 50c core and VRM if my rad fans speed up.

Hawaii takes voltage pretty well, there are several people on this forum who have run high voltage OC's with no problem.

Also, if my card degrades in two years I don't really care as I'm gonna be upgrading then anyways... That's also when I'm going to get a new mobo, CPU, and RAM.

1175/1500 on my Elpida memory sapphire 290x with +60mV and 1200/1600 +75 mV on my Hynix based XFX 290x. Currently testing my tri x oc 290x to see its limits. Max GPU core temp is 50 and it only happens with Far Cry 3, even in Crysis 3 cards are maxing at 47. Kinda weird me thinks.

Seeing that almost everyone here is running a 290/290x and more than likely used a 7900 series card before that jump.

Was the jump worth it?

I'm running a pair of 7950's now and I'm thinking about going to just one 290. The 14.2 drivers work great for me and mantle runs fine in BF4 as long as I disable crossfire and only use one card.

Thanks

I had a reference 780 for 2 weeks before I got my AMD internal card 290X and it's a big performance difference. I'm on the stock cooler with the I/O plate removed for better flow, replaced TIM and fan raised my 2mm with spacers to make the fan more efficient and I run it at 1200/1650 with +25mv.

For me coming from a 7870 reference, it was a HUGE upgrade. And if you are thinking about crossfire 290/x eventually, I can tell you the scaling is pretty awesome. 80-100% plus in most games and it is a nice way to futureproof your rig.

Also from benchmarks and reviews I've seen a crossfire 7970 is just about equal with a single 290x a pretty massive generational leap. Even more so if you play at 1440p, 1600p, 4k or eyefinity resolutions

A friend of mine running a 7950/7970 in Xfire and his 3DMark11 bench scores are just slightly higher than mine.  As long as you can keep these cards cool, most of them OC very, very well.

 

You could likely sell your 7950s and come to close, if no, break even on a new card.

Thanks

The only issue I see is that the die itself is turned back 45 degrees and my MCW82-7900 Swiftech water block won't work on that card.

Is the die lower than that little wall around it on the PCB?

If so I could just go back to my older MCW60 Swiftech block and add a shim.

Thanks again
