[Official] AMD R9 390/390X Owners Club - Page 681

post #6801 of 11748
Minusorange, gonna be more than a "little" extra to get 390x, if looking at bang for buck, get 390, don't spend money trying to save old hardware, get new

All: For what it's worth, don't let anyone tell you the 390 is "rebadge" of another card, it's not, just read up on it. AMD doesn't rename an outdated product and then sell it as a new one.

Probably the Devil should come out cheaper but if something else is on sale somewhere it might be close enough gap to be worth it to make a jump to the custom loop instead of the AIO.


Actually The msi R9 390X is Priced at: $446.49 on Amazon and the Powercolor devil at 449$ so not a big difference I rather go with the cool solution

Yes it does. As an example I have myself flashed a 5770 to be a 6770. Even without the flashing 5770 and 6770 could be crossfired back when crossfire was in essence reserved for identical cards.

Or has the cooling on your 290 failed and you need to "save" it for that reason? If the latter then ~130 .. 160 £ should be cheaper than, in essence, buying the same card again.

Yeah the cooling failed, one of the fans on my Tri-x literally fell off, seems like the magnets have lost some of their magnetism so it's not sticking in place and flies off whenever the fans ramp up. Running it at the moment with case open and huge fan blowing on it so I can use the rig as the only spare card I have that I know that works is an old AGP 7800GT lol

Looks like I may not have to pay though, just phoned up the place I bought it from and turns out it's still under Sapphires warranty so I've arranged to send it back on Monday.

Not sure whether sapphire will just replace the broken fan or send me a new 390, hoping it's a new 390 but I know it'll just be a fan lol

How does the Vapor-X 290x compare to the 390x G1 and MSI's Gaming versions? I know the aftermarket 390x's range from 1070-1100 core but do they have much headroom to push even further?

I can barely get 1100 on my 290x vapor x with +90. Not intendding to push any further, just wanted to see how it compares.

not much headroom.
the 390 gen is 1100-1250mhz or so and more stay under 1200 than above it.

Can anyone confirm if the prolimatech mk-26 fits a sapphire 390x tri-X?

Thanks.
post #6809 of 11748
This is the reference 290X PCB:


And the Sapphire 390X PCB:


If an aftermarket aircooler like the MK-26 is compatible with the reference 290X, will it also be with the 390X?

Cheers!

If you have a Sapphire 390x and plan to run on air you won't do much better than the Tri-x cooler. Plus the VRM's are different, so the MK-26 would do nothing to cool those anyway. You will have to add aftermarket heat sinks on the VRM's. The 390x Sapphire VRM's get plenty warm and need to be cooled well. The stock cooler does a decent job.

I would say unless you plan to go with a full cover block on the Sapphire 390x (which I do not think one is available) you are wasting your time. Keep the stock cooler, for air. It does a good job.
