reference if watercooling.

i had 3 on stock coolers for a week or two before i went water cooling. these are the loudest video cards i have even owned. Callsignvega had a video clip of his vacuum being less DB than his 290x cards. i think he had 2 of them.

Not sure what is going on....

So I finished leak testing my first wc build. My r9 290 is making this weird noise when it starts to have 90% load or higher. It sounds like something is vibrating very quickly near the power plug area. I didnt have this before when I was on air. What is going on?

I didn't even make it a week with reference cooler before putting a G10 on it.

Core temps are good, just waiting on Gelid vrm heat sinks before crankng it up!

Cheers

Answer for fasterisbetter

I went w/MSI R9 2904G Gaming (2x) as soon as there were fullcovers for them
I have a pref for their PCB 's & components...
I have never used Giga's before,and was not finding compatibility jnfo for HIS fast enough .
I heard some less than flattering things about Powercolor...
Would never AGAIN go XFX under any circumstances...
Add'l custom features almost never hurt unless they preclude block fitment....

I think it is coil whine but I don't really know why I have it as it wasn't there when I was on air.

Performance would be better than 290 CF but a little slower than 290x CF due to the 290x having more shaders.
CF mirrors everything, from RAM to shader. So when you CF a 290 to 290x, only 2560 of 2816 shaders from 290x will be used. The performance therefore will be the same as 290 CF.
Absolutely incorrect. They do not mirror the shaders. They can have different shaders and clock speeds
They have done this since at least 79xx.

Yes. And you did have it. You just could not hear it
