CHEERS..

Holy smokes I just now saw your avatar. Hail fellow juventino!

I don't mine so I can't tell you about hashes but game temps are excellent, just got done playing an hour and a half or so, ambient ~23

No, the dcu2 won't fit the block, I'm in Canada.

*edit*
I'm actually starting to lean towards the tri-x. If I buy the reference Asus 290x and lose the silicon lottery, I won't want to watercool it and I'll be stuck with a card with a crappy cooler. Same for reverting it to stock later in it's life.

I haven't read a ton of great overclocking results from the reference Asus 290x, but I HAVE seen some great reports regarding the tri-x 290.

Anyone else noticing more availability and prices starting to drop?

Hehe, Forza Juve wink.gif
Thanx for info, excellent temps indeed thumb.gif

@ Kingt,

i would love to post my hashing rates today but im having trouble getting guiminer working atm, you can see what problems i have in this thread, got the latest post on there, hopefully some1 will get back to me

replaced my -%7 underperforming 290 pcs+ with a brand new 290 pcs+biggrin.gif



Result= Same frikkin scores.... 14200 3dmark 11 gpu 57.5 valley

windows 7-win 8.1 all kind of drivers no fix.

can i be double unlucky? Or is it my mb cpu ?

dont want a new cpu my 2500k shhould be ok

i ll buy a new mainboard z77

here , this is not right:mad:

2500k@4.8 290 @ 1215-1650

thats wierd, the core clock is 1040 and the memclock is 1350,
the memclock is higher than sapphire tri-x so it should perform better gaming wise. make sure you download lastest drivers, 13.12 catalyst
how much ram do you have btw?

also i started mining today, finally figured it out, with guiminer i was getting max 730 with 32000 or so thread concurrency and 20 difficulty

then it lowered down and it failed and recovered, kinda weird

maybe its not good for mining

i tried 24000 thread concurrency and 20 difficulty, getting about 660 kilohash

i didnt bother doing that for too long, the card is pretty loud and those high concurrencies cause desktop lag and i jsut want to surf while i mine atm

i have been mining atm for hafe hour with 630 kilohash while using the pc and no desktop lag
the gpu is at 100% not sure if thats normal for a hash considered low for 290,
, heres the settings after im gonna try SG miner, its better and less errors or something so yea



Also i havent tempered with clock speeds, dont plan to either, not sure how plus i dont want to risk anything, the card is quite loud when mining since the fan jumps well past 70% fan speed
Gaming i can reach those fan speeds if i max everything and supersample the resolution but i cant stand it so i never supersample, i just max everything, even aa and all that, fan speeds reach 50 and under like that but im playing at 1680 res, my monitor cant go any higher.
might have to rma though this rattles sounds a bit nasty, low audible rattling, not hearing a buzz anymore like i used to.

update, getting stable 740 kilohash mining




i just changed my thread concurrency to 27400 and difficulty 20, nets me 740 stable, vrm 1 reaches 82 degrees though. vrm 2 is pretty cool, sitting around 56C

the actual GPU temp is 75 C

not bad i guess, i dont like the 82 degree vrm 1, thats a bit disgusting, i wonder how the sapphire tri-x vrms handle 100% gpu load
and of course the cards fans are around 80 percent, its very very loud
like a blowdryer on low settings lol

and i get a bit of rattling, i contacted powercolor, waiting to see what they tell me it might be, maybe its some kind of wind turbulence headscratch.gif
other than that, its not bad getting 740 kilohash, ill be incrementing thread concurrency by 64 points and see how much higher the hash goes
740 is still a bit low for a 290

gotta hit at least 800, seen alot of them hit 850 to 900
but 900 mark people seem to be increasing memory clock speeds to 1500 and decreasing core clock to 1000
and using 32000-ish thread concurrency,

Are you using DDU to make sure you're getting a clean driver install? Also, a monitor to make sure you're not getting current fluctuation resulting in card not working at full usage and clock?

can you post your valley 1.0 score with 1080p

not only DDU but
I did;
reformat system drive, fresh install win 7-win 8 (fail)
DDU installing 14.1-13.11 beta(fail)
Unplug all hdd ports , all usb ports, disable onboard sound,lan etc. (fail)
replace psu (ocz 750W corsair tx650) (fail)
install windows to mechanical drive (maybe ssd failing me). (fail)
change memory slots (fail)
reinstall cpu and paste(fail)
reset bios several times, remove bios battery (fail)
flash old bios for motherboard (fail)
flash gpu with tri-x bios(fail)
go to store replace pcs+ with a brand new unopened one (fail)

got a new maninboard z77 lets see whats goin to happen.biggrin.gif

daymond, heres my benchmark, i cant do 1080p btw, my monitor maxes out at 1680

http://oi62.tinypic.com/34riwwi.jpg

i would upload here but you cant read the clock speeds on top right corner unless putting a link, also the green number is dxtory showing fps in the top middle of the screen

also my gpu temp reached 71C, proof below

http://oi58.tinypic.com/4g6f5j.jpg

vrms temperature - vrm 1 - 75C
vrm 2 - 52 C

http://oi59.tinypic.com/jpenb9.jpg

fan speed reaches steady 80% but when i mine, it reaches 87%

i dont know anything about these scores, is 2700 low for 290s?
they seem alright to me, i was getting pretty stable just above 60fps for the most part
