After this, ran it for another 15min
Score:

After looking at your results, there are only 2 scenarios I see happening here.

A) my S1 is defective (not sure how but it is, maybe the liquid escaped from the heatpipes over the years.

B) Your chip is one of a kind and doesn't leak much power

Either way, I'm glad this is working so well for you. I was gonna post pics but I reverted to the stock cooler and really don't feel like throwing the S1 on again - since it looks just like your setup except I used the stock baseplate and different fans.

I might actually get one if they are binned good enough for most of them to do 1300 core with daily usage voltages.

Agreed, the memory OC is great, but it doesn't help nearly as much as the core for performance. I'm curious to see what it would do underwater and overvolted a bit more. +60mV is really not that bad to get a 1150/1650.

Got my eye on possibly buying 2 R9 290's a little later this year. I'm just after some approximate results of temps for these cards in Xfire while being watercooled? What is the OC potential of these cards when being watercooled? Also, what PSU would be required to run 2 of these cards OC? And the PSU required if I ran 3 of them OC? Lastly, since I'm going to watercool the cards, is there any need for me to spend extra money on buying a card with a custom air cooler? Or can I buy a cheaper card without the custom cooler?

I could search for the answers, but I'm heading off to bed now, so I'm hoping some awesome OCN user will be able to answer my questions while i sleep biggrin.gifwink.gif

I'll try to answer your questions. In order,

1. Crossfire temps should be around 50c core and 60ish vrm depending on how much cooling surface area you have in your loop
2. Noone knows OC potential when underwater yet.
3. Review says 250w tdp with stock voltages so double that and add 30-50% to be safe for heavy overclocking, you're looking at 650-700w for the cards. 1000w psu or above should be able to handle it.
4. 3 cards would require a 1200w or above. I'm using an evga supernova 1300w for my trifire setup
5. Yes and no. The reason people buy custom over reference designs is that some of them (MSI, Sapphire, Powercolor) are higher binned cards with components meant to sustain better performance than the reference design. All depends on price of the card vs reference and how much overclocking you intend to do.

Primarily because it has +50mv set within the bios. It does seem to be a bit more stable at higher clocks, but that could be just my imagination.

Techpowerup has a VBios for plenty of cards. Link:

Hmm, i'm just thinking that it could be the heatpipes too, I know that the new and old revision use 4x6mm heatpipes, but could there be some internal differences in the pipes? Idk about the leakage, it should'nt do much of a difference really. By the way, what is your ASIC quality?

81.6% - its an AMD internal sample, clocks very well. S1 and S1 Turbo have identical dimensions, only the compatibility has been improved through the better mounting plate. Either way, I paid $30 for it 7 years ago, so maybe some of the liquid inside has evaporated/sipped out over the years.

Then again I don't Arctic Cooling recommending it to cool 250watt card like r9 290. For example Tom's Hardware used their Accelero Extreme for 1150 core with 100% fans and got 70C temps. Mind you Acellero Xtreme is a 300watt cooler.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/r9-290-accelero-xtreme-290,3671-4.html

http://www.arctic.ac/worldwide_en/products/cooling/vga/accelero-xtreme-iii.html

http://www.arctic.ac/worldwide_en/products/cooling/vga/accelero-s1-plus.html

"Equip it with an add-on fan - S1 PLUS Turbo Module, the cooling capacity of the Accelero S1 PLUS can be upgraded to 120 Watts, which is adequate enough for some of the high-end VGA cards including AMD HD 7870 and NVIDIA GTX 670."

So in conclusion, I have no idea how you are able to cool ~275watts with a 120watt cooler. You got black magic going on there. redface.gif
