R9 290x Tri-X, Benchmark's, OC's Etc

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have just purchased my R9 290x Tri-X and it will be with me in a few day's biggrin.gif

I made this post to see if I could check out other people's OC's, Benchmark's and Temp's off there card's. I am gaming at 1080p at the moment so any result's at this res would be great, I am just so inpatient and would like a head's up on what I can get this card to do before it come's.

Thanks in advance guy's and girl's

1250/1650 with 130 mV offset is near the max I can bench my tri x oc.

At 1080, even at 1440 you will find no need for an overclock, the out of the box performance gives an amazing gaming experience. The temps will be dependent a bit on your cases airflow. In a case with poor airflow I have seen temps of around80C at max, with good air flow the temps drop a lot. Using a Mercury S3 case with some great positive airflow when gaming I never go above 70C and the system is pretty close to silent.

I am waiting on the NZXT H440, I have read it does not have the best air flow but I will be using a H100i on my CPU and have a good amount of fan's hopefully this will be ok.

The card itself is quite then? I have a Windforce 3x 7950 currently and it can get loud in game's.

Get yourself a good pair of headphones and turn those up loud when you game and you won't even hear the card.

The card is tolerable to me at anything under 70% fan speed, after that I can hear it, and on 100% it is fairly loud but doesn't sound whiny or anything- and again with headphones I can't even hear my cards while gaming, and I have two, with the fans on full blast while gaming.

Benchmark wise, this is what you can expect with a single card:

http://hwbot.org/submission/2491041_neurotix_3dmark___fire_strike_radeon_r9_290_9600_marks

I did those with an AMD FX-8350 CPU, which is what you have, with an Intel your scores would be a few thousand points higher.

Btw, you will be lucky to find a card that will do 1200mhz on the core, and lucky to find one that will do 1600mhz on the RAM.
