[Official] AMD R9 390/390X Owners Club - Page 322

post #3211 of 11900

Got the MSI R9 390 Gaming yesterday, so far so good. It's a decent upgrade over my 7970.

Ambient temp: ~21C
GPU: 73C (max)
VRM1: 68C
VRM2: 50C

Now the reason I write this is because I've seen people even with the same card with much higher temps, and was curious what the difference is. Obviously my ambient temp isn't very high so I'm sure that helps. My case is mid tower with the drive bay removed and a good array of fans (see profile for specs). And in actuality I run a milder overclock of 1150/1650, +19, so temps are even cooler. I've learned from experience with my XFX that it could be thermal paste, since I was able to drop the GPU temp on that card down by 10C, but it still doesn't account for VRMs.

My MSI R9 390 runs at 90c when playing BF4, ambient is ~23c

These chips LOVE high airflow setups. Quality fans feeding cool air in from the side and front helps a ton.

For those who have already done it, on a scale of 1 to 10, how complicated is it to change the thermal paste on the MSI 390x? The whole disassembly process seems kinda daunting at first.

Also, is there any chance that MSI would honor the warranty afterwards? I'd guess the answer is "No, you just voided it", but I dunno.

So I know that most people don't read or even look into the Online Deals forum, but do come to this thread more often, but Newegg is currently running a $50 off promo code for ALL R9 390/390X's on their website. And it works for cards that have a Mail-in-rebate too, so you can stack on some serious savings.

Those temps are also excellent. You must have low ambients coupled with very good airflow.

That was the first OC I tried and I just played with the volts until it was stable. At that OC I'm getting 67/63/50. Will probably find a middle ground somewhere, see what I can do with ~50mV. Not that it makes much a difference at that point, maybe a few frames.

My personal OP would be about a 3 out of 10. Very easy IMO.thumb.gif

I have a water block coming Monday from EK, and hope to order a PowerColor PCS 390X 8GBD5-PPDHE tonight. The PowerColor gpu's I've bought in the past have been good overclocker's so I thought I would go with them again.
I missed the $399 price from the Egg, unfortunately, but they still have a $20 rebate.

The Powercolor 290(X) PCS+ cards were great clockers, amd their coolers were very good (same cooler in theur 390 edition I believe which tells you how solid their original design was).

Let us know how you get on woth clocking that beast!
