@1080p with decent OC (1150/1625), settings all Ultra except foliage distance=high, and Hairworks ON I usually run around 60 with dips into the 50s. This is with Vsync on and HBAO+.

But seriously just play Dragon's Dogma you will get really high framerate biggrin.gif

Does it really? I run it constantly in every game become I'm neurotic like that and need to know my temps, how much of a fps hit can it cause?

yes thats normal every monitoring software increasing frametimes wink.gif
also decrease from 350 to 300 is nothing to worry about wink.gif

normally there is like 1-2fps decrease in 50-60fps range but if your refresh time in afterburner is low it can cause microstutter

I use rss with hwinfo integration to overlay fps, cpu/gpu temps and usage.

For benchmarking I'd run Fraps and record every frame time. You can then make a, uh, histogram chart of the frame times. This will show you median fps as well as the longest frame times.

Hi guys, new to the club here, just recently sold my R9 270x CFX setup to buy an R9 390(basically broke even in pricing)

I bought the ASUS R9 390 Strix DC3 since there was no MSI in stock on Amazon, but after checking newegg its cheaper plus it was in stock but i already ordered the card doh.gif

I've heard some mixed reviews on this particular card, mostly performance and heat issues, been contemplating to return it since it could cause a problem in the long run, and just get the MSI version, idk if i should? thanks all

Yes the VRM cooling on the Strix DC3 is awful.

As far as i know it's not that good in Nvidia counterparts as well. I saw people with Asus Strix gtx 970 and 980s with vrm temperatures around 95-100C on stock clocks.

I believe when it comes to VRMs it's all about where the sensors are located to be honest. I just can't understand how MSI r9 390 vrm temperatures stay that low on gpu-z (around 60s), while infrared measurements prove the opposite. Tom's Hardware's test shows MSI 390's vrm pins heating up to 100C under load on stock clocks.

I wouldn't take gpu-z or any other monitoring software as very dependable sources. At the end of the day it's not hard to mess up with those sensors.

If you take vrm temperatures into consideration, the difference should be negligible to be honest. Tom's Hardware test proves MSI 390 vrm runs quite high as well, maxing at 101C. I wouldn't make my call according to the sensor readings. God knows where those guys at MSI placed that sensor to obtain those low readings. smile.gif

On the other hand, Asus core temperatures are a bit higher than other 390s which might be a tad better decision point if you think it would worth the hassle. .

So maybe it is just that ASUS is reporting it correctly compared to others?

nope asus have bad cooling

980/970 have bad temperatures but no VRM monitoring so all their users are fine biggrin.gif
