I think he meant that the next gen cards that will replace 390 series are better.

Holy thermal paste Batman!

So I got an XboxOne/Windows controller (pretty sweet) today and loaded up Witcher 3. A bit hotter in my room and with a decent OC on temps were nearing 80C. This just didn't seem right. So I went ahead and voided my warranty (stupid sticker screws!) and I'm glad I did. What I saw was shocking. I think the thermo5000 dab-o-matic at the factory was running haywire that day, because the paste was an absolute gobbed on mess. There was so much it came out the side of the chip/heatsink interface and congealed on the side. Cleaned everything off and applied a dab of some cooler master paste leftover from installing my CPU.

Well temps are much better now about 10C cooler! Barely touched 70C with a decent OC. I could perhaps reapply a different paste if that will make any difference? But it has worked fine for my CPU.

Sorry I should have took some pics of the whole debacle but it was in the heat of the moment (zing!) rolleyes.gif

Yeah the thermal paste on the msi cards in particular seem to be iffy. I have had 3 r9 390x's and the first one reached temps of up to 90. The second reached temps up to 85. So Msi finally sent me one from the factory and that one only reaches 72.

So it's definitely a thermal paste issue.

so far we see that the cards should have better paste application. besides that we are pushing as much as we can from the 390x. upping volts rids artifacts but introduces heat and a downclocking at times. the best clock is what you can get max memory with the max core with no voltage adjustment.
yes a 390 can clock faster, buttttt remember what the 390 gets with an overclock is what the 390x gets most of the time at factory overclock. higher numbers on core and mem ≠ better performance

But this is overclock.net and "if everyone else jumped off a bridge....?" biggrin.gif

So this is just for fun of course.
Here is what I would consider my GPUs max limits of 1180 / 1700 with +100mv / 100% fan / +50% PWR
Any more on the core I get artifacts.
Any more on memory I get black screens.
GPU temp - 75c / VRM1 temp - 102c / VRM2 temp -98c (remember 100% fan speed & +100mv)
So there is no way on earth I'd even try using Trixx to get more voltage and try for 1200 core with these kind of VRM temps, besides as I said I think these kinds of overclocks have no real use for me anyway other than for testing, because I consider these clocks unrealistic for any prolonged use.
1180 / 1700 Firestrike

1100 / 1700 is what I would consider my GPUs "sweet spot" since I can hit that without a voltage increase while easily keeping the core and VRM temps under 70c with a quiet fan profile.
Now If I was told I had to overclock, these are the clocks I would personally choose for daily use.
So for those who were asking for 1100/1700 scores to use for comparison a few pages back, here is mine.
1100 / 1700 Firestrike

1140 / 1700 isn't too bad either but requires a mild voltage increase of +30mv....Anything over 1140 requires +50mv or more and my VRM temps start to climb fast.
1140 / 1700 Firestrike

Notice how my physics score actually goes down after 1100mhz on my setup? Odd

Anyway, I'm done "testing" and I'm back to gaming at my default 1055 / 1500 clocks and couldn't be happier for the perf/price I paid.
(I got my Sapphire 390x for $399 with free shipping and free Mad Max game on Newegg....I see the price is back up now and the MSI is now $399 instead, so one could assume that 4th QTR prices/deals should be even better yet)

If you could combine Sapphires core cooling with MSI or XFX VRM cooling, you'd have the perfect air cooled 390/390x IMO.

the only place you beat me was in physics really. i disable hyperthreading on my i7.

My OC's seem stable, just got the card today.
1150/1725 w/ 50% PL and +75mV.

Gonna lower my clocks, VRM1 is climbing 110 apparently...
Or are the VRM rated for 110+ on XFX DD 390?

VRM's are rated pretty high but the sweet spot seems to be in between 70-80c on my card.

Now i love overclocking as much as the rest of us do but real world gains from it sometimes arent worth the extra heat tongue.gif

Just ran +50mV/50PL doing 1135/1650, the VRM was just as high temped.
Might just run 0mV/50PL and leave it at that.

If you can get 1100/1650 on stock voltage with just power limit bumped up then id leave it there and call it a day smile.gif
