Most likely the psu's fault. The gauge wire used for pcie power may be too high, and you may be putting too much current through the rated specs of the wire. You'll need a lower gauge wire to support the current needed for the graphics card, if that's indeed the case.

hi, i have a problem with my motherboard, i copypast it from another forum

"hi, i have a temp problem in my rig, i have two card in it 1 290 trix and 1 280x toxic, the toxic in the first slot run 15° hotter(88 vs 73), to me this isn't normal at all.

when my second card was an old 7950 the temp were about even, so can this be related to the fact that there are two different cards now? or it is just the MB that is too old(asrock p67 extreme 6) to support those kinda of cards if they are different, i don't know what to think sincerely

So 71c core, 71c vrm1, 56c vrm2 on a heat stress test as the top card in a crossfire inside a silenced mid tower cooled by undervolted Noctua fans.

And in-game temps of 64c core, 57c vrm1, 47c vrm2.

Ambient ~22.

Taem, you have 2 290s under a 850Watts PSU, what is the total power draw?

With 4670k @ 4.7ghz 1.275v and the 290s at stock, game load power draw is under 600w. If I oc the cards that shoots to ~675w. This includes 8 fans, ssd, odd, though I had my hdds disconnected.

But basically, if you run the 290s at stock, an 850w psu is more than enough, even if you oc your cpu.

I have a wall meter measuring wattage at the socket. (A Belkin Conserve Insight.) A 290 at stock draws ~200-220w at max game load. Interestingly my Powercolor draws ~25w less than my Sapphire even though both are reference pcb. But you can see the hwinfo power readings in my screenies a few posts back, they show what my wall meter shows. Gpu z concurs.

A 4670k is not a power hungry part, and max game loads will rarely cause stock 290Xa to pull more than 250w a piece. An 850w PSU is sufficient for such a setup.

If I was running two 290Xes I would hesitate to push for maximum possible load with my CPU and my 860w PSU, at least for any length of time, but a hyperthreaded SB-E will pull twice as much power as a non-HT Haswell quad (8-core FXes can be even worse in this regard), and the maximum load synthetic or certain other non-gaming loads can manage is far greater than what you'll see from games.

Just as an update. I received my replacement R9 290 Tri-X and gave it a mining test run. Power cable feels a little hot during mining, but nothing like the skin scalding temperature before. Certainly not hot enough to melt the cable. Good stuff.

Good to know it was the card and not the psu like I thought it was.
