post #18321 of 43911
Hey guys.. I'm getting the 'Ouch! Something has gone wrong" error.. Anyone know how to fix it?

Unexpected error

just to confirm, but it's the ASUS Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II cooler that has the flaw where the heatpipes don't touch right?

When I was looking at the Tom's Hardware thing, their card was black, whereas mines isn't. I have yet to break the seal on mines, but I really don't want a non-reference card that performs as bad as a reference card


the card: http://products.ncix.com/detail/asus-radeon-r9-290-directcu-6f-93995-1064.htm

Are we talking just the components you listed? How many volts on the 290X's? How many volts on the 8350?

Really depends on your OC and what voltage you push through them.  They get real thirsty when you pushing the envelope.

Even with that many volts, 1315 core is killer for a 290 that's not on LN2. Lucky you tongue.gif

I have a Sapphire Tri-X R9 290 and my power connectors are molten. I just replaced the power cable of my AX860 with another one because the plastic tips were literally melted and charred. Is this normal?

Certainly doesn't sound normal. Something needs to be RMA'd.

The strange thing is my 7950's power connectors don't even feel warm while mining. I understand that the power connectors aren't supposed to be melting on the R9 290, but are they supposed to be fairly hot while mining? I don't even have the voltage that high, just +37.

I'll hazard a guess,
OCed 290X 400W each = 1600W
Vishera @ 5.2Ghz = 300W
Fans / Watercooling pumps = 100W
Total consumption = 2000W.

Also I dont think you need a quad D5 pump, a Swiftech MCP35X2 should be plenty.
