AMD R9-290X
2400 Mhz Team Extreme DDR3
Gigabyte GA-990FX-UD7 (rev 1.1) with Vdroop
Many 140mm AKFN-073 Akasa Viper Fans @ 109.55 CFM / 21.7 dB


CPU Cooler :

Prolimatech Genesis + 3 x Akasa Viper 140mm fans
+
Indigo Extreme Precision Engineered Thermal Interface (ETI) for AM3+

Expected Stable Overclock : 5.0 Ghz
Hopefully : 5.2 Ghz
Max Overclock : 5.3 Ghz


GPU Cooler :

Prolimatech MK-26 Black Edition + 2 x Akasa Viper 140mm fans
+
IC Diamond Thermal Compound (7 Carat)

Expected Stable Overclock : 1150 Mhz/1400 Mhz (Clock/Memory)
Hopefully : 1200Mhz/1450 Mhz (Clock/Memory)
Max Overclock : 1250Mhz/1500 Mhz


Ill be testing GPU/CPU temperatures with a glass side panel as well as one with four fans.

I am very interested what you are doing. I have a vaguely similar setup of a Silverstone HE01 HSF that also has 6X6mm heat pipes and an MSI GD80 motherboard with vdroop.

This rig is currently running a 8350 at the anticipated vcore of a 9590 just fine.

Best of luck!

Decided on an ASUS PB278Q , will be using Trace Free Mode in conjunction with 85-90Hz overclock via AMD Pixel Clock Patcher! Also grabbed a Spyder4Express to calibrate it to true colour as these monitors are notoriously not calibrated..

More updates Soon!

Also grabbed a GA-990FX-UD7 Rev 3.0 which is better suited for overclocking the 9590 to its maximum potential.

Also i want to mention I will be overvolting my custom cooled 290x via flashing with the tweaked ASUS R9-290X bios.
