Hey guys

i just got my Sapphire r9 290x tri x version and overclocked it to 1150/1550 but i noticed that the vrm temp is reaching 100
do you guys know waht the max vrm temp is on this gpu?
also if u guys have better overclock settings.. feel free to share with me

peace

Really? I swear I didn't hear it, my fan profile wasn't that high....

He has a 290x and was thinking of adding a 290 alongside it.

Performance would be better than 290 CF but a little slower than 290x CF due to the 290x having more shaders.
This is true but not by much though performance wise

Just to correct something roboyto posted in his super post a couple pages back:



The top left phase area is for PLL (trio of mosfets), which is responsible for handling PCIe voltage (it also includes the large rectangular choke I forgot to encircle in the picture). The phase on the top of the group of 6 phases is memory (it's separated a bit more than the other 5), and the last 5 phases are for the core.

VRM2 Shows PLL VRM temps, and VRM1 shows Core/Mem VRM temps.

Couple of things:
- how does your core clock graph look like? voltages?
- cpu?
- could you try using a different gpu port, e.g. displayport? I know it's very remote to be the root cause but just for troubleshooting sake.
- might be a good idea to try logging gpu-z logs into a file and upload it so we can take a look

Hey guys, my Sapphire 290 Vapor-X sometimes makes a pretty irritable buzz noise and I just RMA it for a replacement on Newegg. Can you tell me if it was the right thing to do?
I read somewhere that it buzzing noise could have come from power supply choke but the thing is I have Seasonic SS760 Watts Platinum, one of the best power supply on the market as of now so I don't think that is the cause of it, however, I'm still not sure because the power requirement for the R9 290 is relatively high at 750Watts.

Can you tell me what you guys think the cause is? I will be getting my replacement next week and hopefully it was just a bad card and not my PSU not having enough juice.

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....
MSI Gaming 290/290x use weaker VRM, which lead to lower voltage on memory. You will have a hard time pushing them up.
The good news is you can flash reference BIOS onto them, the best one is Asus and Sapphire. But the weak VRm of MSI Gaming need to be cooled properly, cause they can't stand more than 110c like the VRMs on ref cards.

Tri X uses ref board, so like I just mentioned, 110c is still safe for them. They will make the card throttle a bit at that temp though, so it is not recommended. Having a 100c component in your case is not a good idea thumb.gif

coil whine i guess? It depends. I would treat it like an 'allergy' ...to some folks, it's very annoying while others don't really mind (especially if you use headphones most of the time). I think it'll always be there, it's just a matter of how loud it gets. That's one of the reasons why i returned one of my gpu card, btw. Replacement card I got is better.

On OCN there is a fix for coil whine in 7970. The idea is simple and works for every card: "Let the card whine continuously until that noise stops on its own"

My ears are pretty sensitive to high pitch noise. I love this card to death because it's complete silent 90 percent of the time but sometimes it just buzz like crazy and that's unacceptable for something that costs $450. I know it's my 290 because my 7850 never had any buzz or whine at all. Here's hoping it's not my PSU because I just bought it mad.gif.

The sound isn't coil whine but a very irritable buzzing.
