So last week i bought a r9 290 and got it unlocked thanks to this forum, i started doing a little oc on it and got hooked lol. i was able to get the card to 1180 mhz on stock cooling stable at around 80 to 85c but i could not stand the fan noise (69 to 75%) so i went ahead and bought a gelid icy rev 2, after two long hours putting it together i was extremely impressed with how quiet and how cool it keeps my gpu, it never goes beyond 69c at 1215 mhz now the problem am having is the vram1 temp skyrockets to around 90 to 95c after 1 hour of furmark, so my question would be how can i cool it down ? Is there any recommended heatsink or special thermal paste i could use on them to lower the temps ? Sorry for my poor english it's not my first language.
