So does anyone here have a Koolance 290x block? I just ordered one after looking at strens results.

Nice, how are they?

I went with XSPC for some 7970 blocks at one stage and I didn't end up using them but they didn't look too great. So I went with the Koolance this time, EK cost a bit more and according to strens results they are about the same.

I really did want some of the AquaComputer ones but nowhere here stocks them!

Nice! I'm hoping for under 50c overall with one card an an RX360 and the 3570k in the loop. Been using the stock cooler for some time now so yeah It'll be nice.

How are ya ?
I wonder if WS has the stuff to clock as well thinking.gif

Should be able to overclock well. Depends on the CPU of course. He doesn't have much choice anyway since only Saberteeth & WS available. Look like Saberteeth can run tri-GPU but WS natively support dual, tri & quad GPU's. Less secondary voltage control, e.g. PLL voltage, than ROG boards but should do well.

You couldn't go wrong with any blocks. If VRM1 still running hot, like reaching 70s to 80s Celsius when overclock, you may need Fujipoly Extreme or Ultra Extreme for VRM1. They're expensive though.

I noticed random squares like artifacts appears during browsing with Firefox, disabling hardware acceleration fixed it but I wonder if AMD can solve it in future drivers?
I did a quick search and it looks it is a common issue with GPU's based on GCN architectures and it has been there from a long time without a fix.

Well, my Fujipoly Extreme came in from FrozenCPU yesterday and I went out to test it on my stock Tri-X cooled 290x.

VRM1 temps dropped by well over 10c even on air. VRM1 is now more or less equal to core temps and I can run much lower fanspeeds while keeping VRM1 cool as well.

Also, if I wanted to, I can get away with +200mV on air now.
Ran +200mV, 1230Mhz core, 1500Mhz VRAM and max power limit yesterday.
On 100% fanspeed temps in testing (BF4, FC3, Valley, FireStrike, 3DM11) did not exceed 85c for VRM1 and core was around 75c. Before VRM1 would just fly towards high 90s to low 100s..

Also, 24/7 clocks i ran where 1165Mhz core, 1500Mhz VRAM at +100mV. This took ~75-85% fanspeed to keep VRM1 under 80c at extended periods of load. Core barely breached the 60c mark then.
Now I got fanspeed set to 65% which is a lot quiter. VRM1 maxed at exactly 80c after running all tests for at least 30 minutes. Core stayed around 72c. Lot better temp-noise balance.

Imma try to get something like 1200-1240Mhz core stable as i couldn't care less about load noise when gaming so... Can't resist. I know 1250 aint gunna work as it artifacts like hell in BF4 and FC3 foliage even on +200mV.

P.S. The 100x15x1.0mm strip of Fujipoly is enough for 3 mounts for the VRM1 section. Just cut it into 3 strips of 5mm wide. A sharp boxcutter / stanley style knife should do fine.

Update: 1200Mhz core, +150mV, 1500Mhz VRAM, 85% fanspeed. With Prolimatech PK-1 on the core and Fujipoly Extreme on the VRM1.

BF4 50 player SQDM @ 1080p Ultra w/ 4x Adaptive AA forced in CCC and HBAO enabled. Ran for 30 minutes.
- Core temp max: 74c.
- VRM 1 temp max: 76c.
- VRM2 temp max: 48c.

Far Cry 3 all settings maxed with 4x Adaptive AA forced in CCC also ran for 30 minutes.
- Core temp max: 72c.
- VRM1 temp max: 73c.
- VRM2 temp max: 51c.

Unigine Valley Extreme preset, 8x Adaptive AA forced, windowed mode. Also ran 30 minutes.
- Core temp max: 76c.
- VRM1 temp max: 80c.
- VRM2 temp max: 53c.

And as a added bonus:
BF4 64 player Conquest large (Naval Strike) @ Ultra w/ 2x Adaptive AA, HBAO and at 150% res scale so 2880x1620 resolution.
- Core temp max: 75c.
- VRM1 temp max: 79c.
- VRM2 temp max: 53c.

If these clocks prove to stay stable at 1200Mhz core then I cannot be happier cause a 1200Mhz R9 290X on 3rd party air is not all that common biggrin.gif (Unless it's a Lightning but k)
