[Official] MSI R9 290X Lightning Thread - Page 46

post #451 of 2830
Thread Starter 
Only been at this card for 45 min. with water, but am definately seeing improvements already. I can say that I was maxing and seeing artifacts at +200 at 1265/1500 on std. bios at 1.35v actual. Once I switched over to LN2 bios and reinstalled driver, It became stable and went to +200 1270/1500 without a single glitch. This was showing as 1.38v during load. I think its safe to say the LN2 bios has an enhanced powerlimit and/or those extra vrm phases are providing cleaner voltage.

Anyway here is my first decent run on water. I'm on a newer R4F at 4.8 on a 4930K. I usually run 4.875 at 125 strap with 2666. Haven't had the chance to go there yet on this mobo. Even with 1200 or so less marks for physics, I beat my previous best on 3dmark performance. Hoping to see this go up once I bump the cpu oc, play with memory clocks on card, and go to 201+ with voltage. Core and vrm1 temps have not gone past 32*

Im running a dedicated loop with 2 rads. One rx360 w/3 delta's and a slim 360 passive. This block has amazing temps for 1.48v. Core is maxing 32* and vrm1 is 28* on AB. Need to check gpu-z to see vrm1 and vrm2 I believe. Can't wait to get back and push further. I'm very tight on time atm.

Ordered mine on Friday, hopefully should arrive Tuesday smile.gif. I'll be going back to air on it to play initially. Hopefully the air cooler is as good as some are making it out to be

Going to be getting my cascade in and I plan to do some runs with the Lightning in the system so I am looking for an A/C unit to mod and use to chill the air for the card

Hopefully my chip will be up to it. You were at 1300 for your 22k runs correct?

I have my MM case setup to use a 5,000btu a/c for pushing cold air. Hopefully get some better runs in this weekend now that I got this chip semi-stable at 4.875 and 2666 mem with 125 strap. Should be pushing 17,000 marks on physics. If my card cooperates I may get a glimpse of 20-21k on 3dmark11 perf. band.gif

To be honest, I've been looking at total score more than just graphics in the past. I'll have to take a look at where he's at that 22k for reference. Definately has to be one of the best chips. Have to see where mine falls. Too early to tell yet. Although I'm anxiously waiting to what joa3d43's card can do on water. Monster clocks for air.
