Thankyou both for your reply

Toltuff i take it your not OCing then?

i flashed my 7950 to non boost bios which gave a oc of 880 but the voltages are 1.094 core and 1.550 for ram
my vrms when using furmark went to near 50 after 5 mins and stopped and core at 43c with a h105 n my bracket.

Seen no need to overclock.... yet

OK there some great temps! Do both of those packs you listed come with thermal tape ?

And is one pack of the mosfet coolers you used on the VRM enough to cover the whole VRM of an r9 290. I measured the length and it is 75mm on my MSI 290 from the very bottom of vrm1 to the very top including the very small gaps in between each mosfet. That pack of 10 equates to 65mm worth of heatsink. Reckon ill be ok with just one pack?

I will also have to get two packs of the RAM coolers as the 290 has 16 VRAM chips. Which will leave me with 4 left over im going to use one on the VRM2 cluster of 3. Where else could i make use of the last 3?

I guess i could cut one down the middle if VRM1 has a little bit of it naked.

I also just ordered a 4-pin mini gpu fan to 4 pin pwm fan adapter so i can set the fan speeds for the kraken G10 fan.

they do come with pads. i would order two packs of each, you ahve some for spare and put all the small ones on the vrms and the bigger on the 16 rams and then on the chip near the vrms and any others you want

The bracket had to be on fairly tight to make contact and it was warping the board slightly, i thought this would be ok but it actually started slowly pushing the GPU chip away from the board and i can now see the pins in between the board and the chip.
The card is now fu**** and when i turn on the PC i get crazy movement on the display with different colours.

Im not blaming the G10 but can the r9 290 fit this card without any modding or shim being added?

Ive ordered a new R9 290 and this time i want to do it properly, i also need some help ordering some heatsinks for the VRAM and VRMs. I live in the UK so i would like to use a UK site, and i want to aim for 1200/1500 clocks if possible.

If anyone can recommend some from a Uk site that would be great.

Specialtech has alot of items out of stock.

sad to hear about your card. Hopefully your new one will OC like a champ to help ease the pain.

This is a reason owners should start a club thread for this product. OP will have valuable information for installation, helpful hints, problem solving and additional helpful information which can be updated. Food for thought thumb.gif and im sure you could see a lot less broken cards in the future

Thankyou, it was painful to see it go frown.gif

I agree completely with what you have said, i literally went off the instructions that came with the G10 as i couldnt real[ly find that much on it. Only after i broke the GPU did i delve further and found some very useful threads. I feel alot more confident this second time around.

I just got a great tip for cooling the VRM1 from another thread. It involves the Gelid Enhancement Kit REV2 and the cable tie method. Even though its held by cable ties it is better off than the REV1 because for that to fit there is drilling, sanding and cutting required.

Some washers came with my G10 but the manual did not mention them at all, any ideas?

Not sure as i do t own the product. I would say if they are plastic/rubber they could be to
prevent shorts but i use rubber washers to simulate the effect of stock spring loaded screws and reduce vibrations.
