AMD R9 290 at 100% fan speed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As the title says

I have a Sapphire 290 (non X) with the reference AMD cooler my question is, if i put the fan at 100% fan speed, apart from the noise, it looks like its going to break something on my PC it's ******* LOUD it sounds allmost as a vacuum cleaner, it scares me to the point that i worried about the integrity of my whole PC

Did someone put the fan to the limit and played normally without a problem apart from the jet?

Thanks

No you can run 100% for years and be ok, every GPU ive ever owned before i got water cooling ran 100% for atleast 2-3 years with no problems.

I ran mine at 100% for a few weeks for mining, only reason I don't now is driver issues and I got an H55 I put on there.

Well, i guess i was just paranoic about it, i never heard a GPU so loudly, but man, this fan even has more RPM than my car, and it's really effective but no so quiet

BF4 at 200% resolution scale and 4xMSAA and runs smoothly as hell 45-60 FPS, i've never felt so powerfull on a computer
