The alphacool is about the best solution right now for both Sapphire and MSI owners right now.

Otherwise get a reference design set of cards.

Although I only had it on a 270x before the Alphacool GPX worked great. Nice low temps even with a small pump and low speed fans. VRM cooling may not be quite as good as regular full cover block but for me I'm willing to trade that off for the lower price.

Will feedback how it does on the 390 as soon as I get it on. Main problem so far is the delay in waiting for aquatuning to get in an upgrade kit so I can move it onto my 390PCS+...

I have send my MSI r9 390x back and got an XFX 390x for that reason ( no waterblock)
The XFX card is great and my Kryographics r9 290x was a perfect fit because of the same pcb used.
clocks to around 1200/1650.




I wonder if more people went for this solution as I can't seem to find any (all stock or geto''ish wink.gif )
Btw. the lighting doesn't do my rig justice tongue.gif
post #3704 of 11905
I'm considering purchasing the R9 390 but which brand has the best cooler as I'll be overclocking the card
post #3705 of 11905
Sapphire or Powercolor have the beefiest coolers.

My 390 has done really well by itself for me, not sure if I just got lucky & got a good OCer but I have been running mine at core 1117 & mem 1675 stable without messing with the voltage at all. Just upped the power limit to 50 in CCC. I now have it crossfired with a 290X & everything has been able to stay the same. thumb.gif

I say we llol pool our knowledge and take measurement of our cards and compare to full size blocks for last series. I believe we can find a 290 x back that can be molded to fit our cards. I'm willing to drop 100 bucks on a block to try. With ekwb just saying no to a whole line of cards, desperate times call for desperate measures. No pun intended lol

There we go with auto correct again. These are amazing cards, and people are putting them down without even trying them! My two beat a few 980 ti sli benches on firestrike

This is the result of my 2nd firestrike run with my 390 crossfired with my 290X. I probably need to fine tune everything though, I have both cards running at different clock speeds (the stable non voltage added OC I found for either 390 core 1117 mem 1675 290X core 1112 mem 1420) Temps are pretty up there for the main card (390) as well, although not so bad with the side panel removed so I definitely need to mod my case for a side intake fan. Or figure out a water cooling solution but I have to really slow down on spending at this point & I doubt my case would fit any anyways. typer.gif

Edit: Well apparently my 390 is running at core 1112 mem 1500 according to Firestrike, not sure what that's about since in CCC I have them both set to the above stated speeds. I do remember hearing something about the stronger card downclocking to match the weaker one in crossfire but that don't make sense in my situation. The 390 stock is core 1015 mem 1500 & the 290X stock is core 1030 mem 1250, hmm... Oh well just happy to have it all set up & working at this point! thumb.gif
