XFX doesn't care about VRM cooling and have shoddy quality in general. XFX even made a cut down version of 7970, with cheaper components than reference. Other company improves stock PCB, XFX cuts down the reference PCB. Even the miners knows this, during Litecoin boom, XFX cards were by far the cheapest on Fleabay.

most review sites go for core temps, so i guess xfx's idea is if they get good reviews on their core temps people will buy it even if their vrm temps are ready to melt their house down.

Is it safe? Should I lower my clocks?

Return it asap, and get the Tri X biggrin.gif

What fan speed and did you applied + 50% power target?

While it's within the design constraints (105-110c) those temperatures are definitely not good, especially in the long run. What are you doing? If it's Furmark then that's ...maybe OK?.
Remove the heatsink and check if there's contact between the VRMs and the heatplate (Thermal pads). If the design doesn't have thermal pads then try to place a fan blowing into the GPU. I've done this in the past with great results.

Why can't anybody design a proper cooling solution for the 290/x? I'm torn between the 780 & the 290/x but seeing these underdeveloped heatsinks on the 290 I keep drifting to an EVGA or MSI 780.

Edit: If you don't care for opening up your own card then you are perfectly within your rights to return it. psyside beat me by 30 seconds.

Currently benching Heaven Benchmark 4.0 (High quality/ Normal Tessellation/4xAA/1080p)


After 5 minutes within benching; VRM reaches around 97c, fans speeds at auto (71%). General temperature seems alright, never goes above 80c.


Currently overclocked at 1200/1350 @ 1.20v

Btw, can this card fit refernces 290/X waterblock? PCB layout looks identical

Auto, refer to my other post.


Yes, I set it to +50%

Ok, when the bench ends, tell us your max vrm/core temps.

Also what kind of cooling/case you got and what is your ambient? thanks.

Powertune has a big influence on temps, both on core and VRMs. Unfortunately, it's necessary if you want to get a good overclock, and to prevent throttling in some cases.

Also, could you run Hawaii Info for us please (refer to step two in the unlock guide)? I"m curious to see if you have an unlockable 290.
