[Official] MSI R9 290X Lightning Thread - Page 17

post #161 of 2829
So this card has been out for almost 2 weeks & nobody here has even posted a 1300 Mhz run.

Common guys.

what drivers are everyone using on this card ?
is it safe to use the 14.3 beta or should i just stick to the whql ?

think my system has settled in now - getting a good 80-100 fps on most bf4 maps - was having some texture flickering but its gone now.
not had a memory leak yet too... which was one of the main reasons making me upgrade - so hopefully the 99% ram usage bug is over for me.

14.3 is fine with this card. However you wont have fan control, other than that it works great.

If you look through the thread, you'll see someone has already posted 1320mhz core. Also, there is no full coverage waterblock yet.

I find I don't need it to game or bench. Card never goes above 74c and that's at 1200/1600. Idles a little warm but runs cool under load. Amd messed up fan control on the 14's but I am sure they will get that worked out one day.

Found it.
Sorry missed that before.

I know the full cover waterblock isn't out yet but it is still pissible to bench outside in cold air. It still is relatively cold in most parts of NA.
Would love to see some valley/firestrike/heaven runs at high clocks.
Also kind of curious if those high clocks are gaming stable.

I might be picking up a 290x in a few days & was debating whether to get a lightning or not.
At the current GougeEgg prices the lightning is equivalent to a reference card + full waterblock.
Just wanna know if those extra phases help.


I was also waiting for how far strongisland1 pushes this card on Ln2 but sadly he has to deal with a dead card.
