Do you think the R9 290 Vapor-X runs cooler and quieter than the other aftermarket coolers for R9 290? thumb.gif

I can't speak from experience with the 290 Vapor-x, but for aftermarket coolers I go for the Vapor-X every time. I[ve owned many Vapor-X cards, across many generations, and they are phenomenal.

My 290 Vapor X should be here by Thursday. Let you guys know how it goes.

http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/zardon/sapphire-r9-280x-vapor-x-oc-and-r9-290-vapor-x-oc-review/28/

Here is a review by kit guru.

Based on the review and design of the card, being that it has a custom pcb, more phases, better chokes, and better cooler then it would essentially run cooler and oc higher. If the fans are exactly the same as the Tri-X then they would be on par in terms of acoustics are concerned but since in the benches it shows about roughly 5C~ better it probably wont rev up as high, plus there is the hybrid switch, which makes the card run on 1 fan until it hits 60C or something. Judging from my perspective from the Tri-X (not vapor) I feel the cooler is low noise during idle, stays at about 20% till higher temps and keeps temps lower than reference. At load it feels like an average cooler because the R9 290(X) series definitely run on the hot side. In my opinion msi gaming and asus dc2 run more quieter but those are the coolers designed for the 700 series. Now I don't know if they revised it with the 200 series but I heard they used the same design and thus not cooling as effectively and it doesnt cool everything but in my opinion I think the msi gaming is super quiet, 2 bigger fans vs 3 smaller fans.

So if I were to rank based on sound I would say msi gaming > dc2 > tri-x, and dont get me wrong as for average users this is silent. I'm just anal with sound and I consider anything above my noctuas to be loud rolleyes.gif but I've heard the 780dc2 and the 770gaming as well as 780acx/classy and the 290 tri-x and out of all of them I feel the gaming to be the most quietest, but again if they didnt tweak up the cooler then it would be kinda useless.

Cooling performance I would lean toward the vapor-x as the custom design helps a lot. If you're in the market I would check out the vapor-x. I personally made the mistake of jumping too early and getting the tri-x but I don't really regret it, though I do prefer it to be quieter. tongue.gif

Oh wait, you said single card, ok you want a 290x then. More power the better (so long as you don't mind spending a little more) smile.gif

PCS+, Tri-X, MSI Gaming and the Gigabyte Windforce cards are the best ones out afaik.

Do you think the extra money for the 290X worth it over the 290? Price to performance etc.

no if you have to ask, then no. 290x is only for epeen and is not much improvement over 290

Tried out 14.4 yet?

i was getting some decent results with it a little earlier, never did any extensive testing though.
Yes the leaked one and didn't bench as well ( a bit broken for cross / TRIfire ) as this old driver does . I wanna crack 24k on F/S and 14k on extreme thumb.gif
Ordered these bits today..........

Should improve things a bit with a w/b . Then I can bench 290X when im done with TRI redface.gif
congrats my friend on your high score !

watercooling question here. I have two reference EK blocks and one ASUS DC block.

ASUS is ontop, XFX reference is sandwiched, and VistonTek reference is at the bottom.

XFX has been flashed to a lower voltage (170W), Visiontek takes (180W ), and ASUS at (200) (can't find any good bios for this card)

Yet, the VisionTek has the coolest temps (50) while the other two are floating close to 60 degrees. I remember switching between Noctua N1H1 and EK thermal paste while setting up the cards, is the difference I'm seeing due to the Noctua?

All the cards are running at 947/1250


p.s Anyone found a bios for the ASUS R9 290 DC that will underclock it to 947? I would like to switch to the iGPU while mining, and back to the GPU when gaming,
