Been awhile since I've posted here but I take it the black screen bug still isn't fixed outside of 13.12? Installed 14.4 and I can OC ram to 1500 and run valley for hours but after 15 mins in a game it will black screen, even at 1255 (5mhz above stock).

so, it does not bs when the memory is at stock? if so, then leave it at stock. i read there is no benefit in oc'ing memory for games. i game with the gpu at stock. my i7 needs oc'ing, otoh.

Agreed, ocing memory isn't that useful in the real world for these cards, going from stock 1250Mhz to 1500Mhz (on both cards) i might gain an extra 2-3 fps.

Try disabling Tessellation in the CCC also for a valley run. It will help your score.

If you must be 100% certain before purchasing you can always e-mail Gigabyte or EK for validation of this fact.

It's not necessary to have identical cards, but it can potentially eliminate some issues you could run into.

Out of the EK waterblock list, only the rev 2 will fit?

I dont get it, I went to 13.12 drivers and im still getting bad results. Every 290x valley run ive seen is way better than mine even when their OC is lower.
