biggrin.gif can imagine how the rig will look then.

2 for 4K and disable crossfire if a game does not support it. one for 1440. XDMA baby!

which thermal paste application method do you guys use?

i recently grabbed one of these just for the hell of it, and notice that the temps are slowly rising to the upper 70°C and sometimes hits 82°C

i use the spread across the die method by the way

fan speed operates the same % as the temps, (i.e 75°C = 75% fan speeds)

i know they are perfectly fine with the 290, but is there anything i can do to stop the "slowly rising to 80°C" part?

the guys at [H] tested the card and only they got 70°C temps during gaming

i use a bit of liquid metal + good airflow.

isnt that kind of paste is conductive though? i might get one in a few weeks

More than a thermal paste, you should be looking into your case airflow with much more emphasis. Bad or lack of airflow will cause high temps. Fix that first. Then delve into taking the cooler apart and reapplying new thermal paste. Gelid GC Extreme and the like are good.

Another important aspect is your ambient temps.

Most reviewers do their testing on an open bench. So their temps can be misleading.

Paste is likely just fine, however the heatsink isn't dissipating the heat quite fast enough, either it needs a higher fan profile or you need more case airflow.

Usually if there's a paste issue the temp will rise very sharply, except for in the case of high overclocks in a watercooled scenario which is sensitive to the thermal conductivity of the paste and pads.

metal compounds are generally a bad idea for GPUs and other bare dies due to the possibility of a short.

If I can get another 290x for around 200ish, do you think it's worth dropping into my system for smoother 1440p? I know the Rx is going to drop next month supposedly for around 200 and it's supposed to have 980 performance which is quite a bit more than the 290x.

Sell yours and go for the RX.
2 of them.
post #42810 of 43975
For the sake of driver support I would ditch the 290x if your considering doubling down for the RX
