[Official] AMD R9 390/390X Owners Club - Page 579

post #5781 of 11739
So I was trying to adjust the VRM heatsink on my card who's core is AIO watercooled by VRMs are air cooled because I couldn't believe the temps could remain so high (~100C). Good new and bads news. Bad news is that VRM2 still maxes out around ~100C (highest I've seen is ~102C so far). Good news is that I was able to lower VRM1 temps significantly and that now maxes at 60C. Such a large discrepancy. I'm going to order the generic VRM heatsinks that Arctic offers and see I can make those fit on my card.

Oh, and for some reason after doing this my benchmark scores increased about 3 FPS.

No idea. Like I said it probably depends where they put the sensors and it's clear that MSI 390s vrm sensor doesn't show vrm pins or mosfets at all. Simply there can't be a 30-40C difference on any part of the mosfets.

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

Yes, Asus Strix GTX 970 and 980s do have the VRM monitoring unlike some other GTX 970/980s.

Wait lol. I was playing at the same settings as you but with HBAO+ on and getting 50fps at 1440p. Will turning off HBAO+ bump it up to 60s? Sorry my bad, but it's still not "ultra".

Maybe in CS GO which honestly isn't a good benchmark anyways. Not if you set it up right. In CS GO I wouldn't even use an FPS counter

That's with a small pump and at 30oC+ room temp. (Not worth comparing to my air results as I had to mount the fans outside the case so they were blowing through a side panel and across a gap, about 80 / 70 for what it's worth). I'm definitely happy with it, gives nearly all the benefits of a fullcover block at less cost and while being upgradeable.

Topless Powercolor 390 wink.gif

If this looks cramped imagine what it's like after the psu, hdd's, and blu ray drive go in. The 360 rad lives outside...

hey guys

I Have the Sapphire Nitro 390 myself;

have you guys had change the thermal paste of these video cards?? what about the thermal pad that is on the VRMs as the memory chips? what's the thick size of those, is it 1 mm??


is not that I have problems with temps, is just so I can buy new thermal pads and have them ready for a possible swap, like these ones

but 390 have better overclock scaling because there is less bottleneck from memory/cut down units

so 390OC = 970OC

970 base clocks on the reference cards are 1050 on the core. The factory overclocked cards run anywhere from 1200 to 1370, but.....that's not the base. Just sayin.

They're both really good cards, and trade blows back and forth.

I know it's not a 390, but, I replaced my 970 with an 8GB 290X. Both were underwater and overclocked to within an inch of their life. The 970 with a custom bios...I'm still working on a custom bios for the 290X. Quick comparison using Firestrike.

Core Voltage + 19mV

Currently using this clock, will try and push it a bit more tonight probably. tongue.gif

Thats a nice comparison, I`d like to see a one like that with 390 vs 970 and it`s still surprising a 290x beats the 970 in firestrike,
