No no. Read the sticker on the card again. It says it's a 290 :-P lol both BIOSes readout as a 290 as well as it being unflashable to a 290X (that's the first thing I checked when I got it is if I could fix it myself).

Validation

one question though. GPU-Z doesn't seem to detect my Fan RPM. although i could hear it go WAY WAY Up during valley benchmark. "correction, it shows how much % it's running but not how fast (RPM) It's at"

now give me tips to run this thing right. i know there are tons of options. just throw me your best ones. what software to use. i know AB is a good one. but i heard it conflicts with CCC. so just throw your experience at me and let me get a fairly cooler gpu.

Congrats - added thumb.gif

Sapphire?

This thing begs to be water cooled. time to list my Old GPU on the local market and see how it goes.

i can't really run the fan at 100%.. it's just absurd

I missed this reply til just now when searching for another one :-D LOL!

I love it when people actually do put the stock blower fan up to 100% and immediately have that "OMG!" moment biggrin.gif Too funny eek.gif

I game with headphones on, and I can just BARELY hear them because of how good the noise cancelling is on the ear cups.

Curious, can anyone that's gotten a brand new in box Sapphire Card tell me for sure, does Sapphire actually send them out like that, no static proof bag? Cuz the Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X OC card I got in came like that too, just foam, no bag. I had to put one on it (I keep a stock of static proof bags around for cases just like this) before I sent it off after reselling it, cuz I'm paranoid.

Aaaw man what was the fix again for that annoying as hell PCI-E 1.1 bug...

My reference XFX 290 @ 290X has it again.. It'll say in GPU-Z and such under load PCI-E 3.0 x16 @ x16 1.1.

Not sure if it actually runs on 1.1 though. Might just be running 3.0 actual but just to be sure...

No, mine came in a static proof bag.

Lol, I love it how we're so voltage happy compared to the CPU overclock guys. I guess GPUs aren't really kept for longer than 2 years here so we don't feel the effects of degradation or voltage death.

I know that according to Intel (who arguably has the most enviable manufacturing process at the moment), continued usage of their CPUs beyond a specified voltage spec, (I think it was 1.5V for Sandy, 1.45 for Ivy and 1.4 for haswell) results in permanent instability at stock clockspeeds (something about the CPU gradually getting leakier and shifting voltage planes). I can imagine the same fate awaits GPUs which are run at very high voltages regardless of cooling. Obviously cooling helps mitigate the damage but I imagine the high energy degrades stuff like the interconnects on the die.

That being said, it would be cool if GPUs, one day, allowed control over voltages like the IMC. Sure there will always be people who shoot for the moon but as long as the documentation is accurate then I don't see an issue, though it seems NVIDIA/AMD are loathe to divulge the engineering specifications of their GPUs unlike Intel.

That's just power saving, when the GPU goes under load it changes.

Well, the way I tell people to do it over at NV Forums in reference to fan speed vs noise is, crank the fan up slowly using Afterburner or Trixx til you can't stand it anymore, turn it down a bit so it's "bearable", set that as your maximum fan speed, and have it kick in to that speed at around 55-60C. That should keep the card a lot cooler than the stock fan profile, especially on 290/290Xs, I mean they don't even go up to the supposed-max the stock profile has, which is 55%, at 90C, what's up with that mad.gif

Read again. It stays at 1.1 under load. A lot of my 290 series cards did this. Especially with non-stock BIOS's.
