what's the temp range for r9 290 and the r9 280x?

how hot is too hot and the danger point for both cards?

R9 290 is designed to run upto 95c. R9 280X is only safe for 85c. ideally shave off 5c from both those. so 90 for R9 290 and 80 for R9 280X is what would be safe for long term use.

No offense, but I don't like when people (more specifically AMD) say the cards are designed to run that hot...

I blame AMD for saying this, they designed the cards AND THEN figured out they were hot, they weren't like "Oh let's design a chip that is meant to run at 95c lol." It runs that hot because it has a crappy reference cooler and AMD want to make it seem like it's no big deal.

The ref cooler will keep it relatively cool if you make a custom fan profile. Stock it tops out at what, 47%? That's why it gets so hot. If it's up to ~70%, even overclocked and overvolted, I would max out around 70c core and 65c VRM's with the ref cooler, although to be honest it was pretty loud.

In my experience Hawaii GPU's seem to be temp sensitive. I am able to hit a higher OC when I have my fans all ramped up and my window open, even though I run a couple degrees cooler.

The highest I'd go with the 290/x is 80c core and 90c VRMs, ideally though the lower the better.

For the 280x, I'd say max temps about the same. I don't have any experience with the 280x (Although I owned a 7950, both are Tahiti) but I have heard that Tahiti can be sensitive to temperatures also.

For both cards you probably won't damage them until you pass 100c, but that's pushing it and if I ever saw my card was running that hot I'd turn off my PC until I found a better cooling solution. thumb.gif

HIS says their cards max out at 100C on their FAQ website, right or wrong that's their response when asked. Funny how they say "if it still works" it is "acceptable"!

Q : What is the recommended high-end heat on the card?
A :The normal temperature would be under 100 degree Celsius (°C).
Normally if it still work, the temperature would be acceptable.
