Yes to the ddu. And wait that's a good idea. I did have steam overlay enabled all this time. I'll try that and get back to you.

Update: Blah no luck. I'm going to try a clean windows install. Maybe some afterburner settings stuck around or something? At least that's what I'm hoping.

I just don't get how an overclock to 1100/1525 could cause this. Those are literally the advertised msi settings. Ughhh

@MySticking, I get some weird issues like that in Witcher 3 sometimes, seems like lighting issues. I figure it's just the game/driver and ignore it since it's the only game that does this. AC:Unity is supposed to be a poorly made game is it not, had many issues when it came out?

So I bought this AIO water cooler for my Sapphire R9 390x. It's the Arctic Accelero Hybrid III 140 290x variant. Installing it was a pain but once I got it on my temps fell drastically. I idle at mid-high 20s and after an hour Furmark, temps never exceeded 55C.

Now my problem is the core temps are good but the VRMs aren't since they aren't watercooled but air cooled. They are higher than they were with the stock cooler. I'm guessing this is because the 290x VRM heatsink didn't perfectly fit my 390x so I placed it as best as I could on my card. The highest temps I've seen is 97C which is pretty hot. I've been using stock voltage because I don't want the VRMs to get any hotter but this inability to raise voltage is killing my OC ability. So, I was wondering if you or anyone had any advice on lowering the VRM temps? I tried putting another fan under my GPU to help cool the VRMs but it only decreased the temps by 2C. I wonder if I should take off the 80mm fan on the VRM heatsink and just use the 120mm fan on the bottom of my case to cool the heatsink? Thoughts?

Free tip: Don't buy AIO crap. Money wasted every single time, be it CPU or GPU.

You would have been better off with the normal Arctic Accelero cooler.

Did you put thermal paste on both sides of your thermal pads? It sounds like you don't have proper pressure on your pads.

Why? The core temps are WAY better than there with the stock cooler. The VRM temps aren't as good but I think that's because I'm using a cooler that isn't suppose to technically fit my 390x.

On the stock cooler, there was no thermal paste on the thermal pads and the manual doesn't mention doing that so I never thought to put any on them.

Not true at all. Post some proof of this and I'll post mine that rebuts it. rolleyes.gif

You need to make some good heat sinks for your VRM's. Its not hard to do. Anything on the market is not going to do an adequate job of cooling the VRM's. Get some heat sink stock from Amazon and make your own heat sinks. Then use FujiPoly Extreme and your temps will be just fine. Mine don't ever go higher than 55-58C anymore even while pushing 1200mhz plus on the core. It is possible, you just have to do some research and make a set that works for your setup.

I hear you. This shadow issue does occur in AC Unity only for the most part.

But it also occurs in BF4 with fires and smoke flickering. I mean it's not that big of a deal. It's just hell of annoying lol.

And unity is for sure a poorly made game lol.
