Okay, thanks a lot! I'll try it out and report back later.

Be sure to let us know how your card does. I have one of these too. Mine was very fussy about the power supply I used with it, but once that was underway, all has been great. Curious to know how someone's OC's besides mine.

Any useful tips for http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b3393/asus-strix-r9-390x-directcu-iii-oc.html ?

Im using ASUS GPU TweakII for overclocking.
I used benchmarks to define the maximum of this card.
I can hear my card throttling sometimes, like it wont allow me to use everything it has to offer. I know its for my cards safety. But I dont go so far to damage my card. Even on lower parameters, it occurs.

Because the cooling on the Strix is awful, that's why. You can't give it extra voltage without the VRM hitting 100C+.

A few other things also.....

Crimson driver without hotfix can cause core clock throttling, and also make sure your power limit is at 50%, regardless of whether you are overclocking/volting or not.

I've had several hawaii/grenada cards that would throttle in the 930-1000 range if power limit was not increased.

If it still does it after that, try jacking up fans and taking your case door off to see if the cooler temps stop it from throttling. What exactly are your temps?

I just can't believe Asus failed on cooling 2 rounds in a row, an with a second cooler design. They keep slapping their NVIDIA coolers on AMD cards despite the fact that the damn AMD cards need the better cooling worse than the NVIDIA cards do!! You'd think if they were recycling, they'd go the other way around? rolleyes.gif

I don't think they care about showing AMD any love. Maybe they want to make AMD look bad? But all they really accomplish is making themselves look like a cheap crappy brand IMO. They've become well known to offer crappy GPU's now if you ask me. Good motherboards and monitors, and that's about it. MSI has them beat solidly on the GPU front now.

WIth the 970 STRIX, ASUS fell so hard on the fail button that they bounced and hit it again. All STRIX Maxwell cards are voltage locked at 1.212v, and can only be unlocked with a special voltage tool (I think it's a modified ASUS GPU Tweak)....but it doesn't work on the 970s. That, and they gave the STRIX 970 1 x 6 pin power connector, SEVERELY limiting it's overclocking potential. ASUS is known for having issues with customer service, so, in seeing what they did to the STRIX Maxwells, and having experience with their RMA process, I'll never even consider them for a GPU in the future. They're just horrible.

This. As much as I love all other Asus products (Especially mobos and monitors), their GPU department is... bad. There's no other way to put it. A friend had a DirectCUII R9 290x and it was horrible. 90+C at all times, no overclocking whatsoever and it was loud if it was to run at reasonable (<90C) temps. Then, one of the fans just stopped working and he couldn't get through with the RMA process, he fed up and bought a water block for the card and made a small custom loop for it (like, with some used parts it cost him a bit north of 200€, which is really good IMO). Then it was decent. Their PCBs are robust and all, but they miss the mark on about anything else. I haven't had experience with their NVidia based GPUs, but their AMD lineup is pure garbage as a whole package. Even the damn Matrix 290x wasn't well cooled for Christ's sake! Shame, because Asus is an otherwise excellent company with some pretty good engineers. If they work a bit on their GPU lineup and fix that terrible customer support (Really, there are countless horror stories about it on the web), they'll be hands down the best, IMO. Meanwhile, I'm not at all saddened to see MSI kicking butt. I always had a special place in my heart for MSI, as my first computer ever had an MSI mobo. I kind of inherited that from my father. tongue.gif

I loved my old Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II TOP. Clocked quite nicely for me, was really quiet and ran all my games until last month (~mid quality settings).

But now I'm really happy with my Sapphire Radeon R9 390 Nitro. thumb.gif
