I need to know as much about the r9 290x.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
for the past few years I have been running a HIS Radeon HD 7970 and It has been going strong for 2 and a half years now. Now it is having overheating problems. Before when i would play any game using the corsiar link software that came with my h100i cpu cooler, the custom fan profile would keep my gpu temps around 65c and now for some reason when i enter into a game now the fans don't spin up and the temps go up to 96c and then stuff starts happening on my screen it feels like lag but I know it's not lag. anyways I was able to look at the event log and it said something about bot able to get maxfan speed controller to work and crashed the computer hour and a half later the computer crashed abain same thing in the event log, the computer has not crashed for two days now and I can't find the event log error to put on here.
For the past few years I have been saving money up and i was going to buy the 780 ti but HIS didn't have any video cards for the 780 ti when i was looking, so I went with the HIS iPower IceQ X² r9 290x for the past 3 days out of 5 I have been online looking at problems with the r9 290x so when and if i ever have a problem I would already know what to do when that problem happens so with that in mind .
please list any info on the r9 290x it's problems and how to fix it, any tweaking guides,tips and tricks for the card I would liek to know thank you and have a good day.

google is your friend.

sounds like its a driver issue. what about cleaning fans on your 7970? reinstalling windows as well might not be idea. if you didnt reinstall windows for like a year, suggest reinstalling first.
