Coolermaster Siedon on R9 280X - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Running 120m on my 7950's in crossfire. Load during games in the mid 40's. Much better and quieter than stock. Especially gpu1. Works well with a shim...

The Siedon is the BEST AIO option for the card with a matching attachment pattern.

I have the 240M on my 290 mounted the same way! thumb.gif

What is on the back a bracket or anything or just the screws?

The screws (20mmx3mm) mount right through the bottom of the board. I installed plastic washers between the screw head and board as a precaution.

Will appreciate some temp. readings & TNX for share!
post #17 of 18
I can only tell you the temps have never exceeded 75C (heavy stress @ extreme core/mem settings) on both the core and vrm1. I generally play Ghosts and the core and vrm1 won't hit 66C.

I'm selling this card on eBay now ..... search his r9 290 and you'll see the FS score of 11569. wink.gif

The cut down stock fan was done to sit right over the vrm1 heat sinks I installed and it's a close cut to retain the fan mounts and still be mountable on the board.
It's not pretty BUT it's very effective AND tunable through TRIXX to help keep the temps equalized under load.

I generally run 1150/1400 in games which, based on my research, is as good or better than most review sites have gotten from these cards for stable everyday settings for the majority of the 290's.

I have run 1200/1400 for days of normal (I don't mine) use with no issue and know I could do 1200/1500 but thars no point really other than bench mark scores. wink.gif

I'm surprised I'm still (barely) on the FS list ......... >>>> http://www.overclock.net/t/1406832/single-gpu-firestrike-top-30 with a lowly 290. biggrin.gifthumb.gif

My goal is to bust into the top 30 of CF scores with a pair of 290x's shortly............. don't tell my wife. ^^ << wink.gif
