[Official] MSI R9 290X Lightning Thread - Page 43

post #421 of 2830
I think a universal is good enough for just the core, but doesn't cool the other parts of the card as well. I'm not looking for aesthetics and I'm not really looking for max clocks on water anyways. I use water when testing, setting up an OS, or if I'm running a certain bench that doesn't really need Ln2. Now my card clocks poorly on LN2 and I have never really tested it on water.

I'm running 780 Ti Classies w/ uni-blocks, and have some Silent Typhoon 3K rpm fans dealing with the Power Section...that setup has always produced very decent temps and I'm going to try it on the 290X Lightning

This sounds interesting... Could you post a pic of your setup?

However, having CCC installed on startup does not effect anything in a negative way. Only when Overdrive is enabled and mixing with other software are there issues.

True. CCC will not affect the use of AB or Trixx if overdrive is disabled. the main reason why i keep CCC from the startup is cause it slows down boot up. that's all.

...here is a pic of a temporary 3-card setup as I am rearranging number of cards etc. With 4 cards active, I use a second set of Silent Typhoon 3K arranged vertically on the 'left side' in pull configuration. Even when running 'full bore' 1470 MHz +, VRM temps stay in the low 60 c range, helped by the cold plate 780 Ti Classies have and which I believe the 290X Lightning also has.LEAD Technologies Inc.

Looks like I'll be the guinea pig. Just placed my order at PPC's for EK waterblock and some other stuff. I'll be the first to admit I'm a little nuts for paying that much( I use the term "little" loosely), but I'll probably end up going through a few of the Lightnings until next Gen, so it should prove handy. See if the extra cooling on the voltage controllers helps. Can't wait to get this card under water. Should be here by Friday and I have this weekend off! wheee.gif Unless the "gentleman" who is supposed to run the laser calls off. doh.gif

No, I didn't. Can make one easily enough if I do want one. Laser beams and all.

Can't you use the stock one?

Absolutely. Just have to get longer screws. The screws that come with Ek waterblocks usually don't account for a factory backplate.
