For Sale:
XFX R9 290 Reference w/ XSPC Razor Block & Backplate

Will Ship To: US50

You are viewing an ad to purchase the following:

 

XFX R9 290 Core Edition Reference Card (R9-290A-ENFC)
XSPC Razor Full Cover Waterblock
XSPC Razor Backplate - Passively Cooling VRM1 w/ Fuji Ultra Thermal Pads

I also have the box for the block along with some odds/ends that are still in it unused - please see photos.

 

The price is $225 shipped.  Fittings pictured are NOT included.

 

PayPal Payment Only.  Shipping to US50 only.

 

It is still hooked up in my HTPC.  I would require 1 day to remove it and get it packed up to ship out.  

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

I bought the card/block about 14 months ago from Stren who takes just as good care of his PC components as I do; I added the backplate.

 

I have (3) layers of Fujipoly Ultra thermal pads stacked to make contact on the backside of VRM1.  VRM1 temps are typically 5C or more cooler than the core, and are usually hanging right around or just under VRM2 temps; this is quite good for a Hawaii card.  

 

I put fresh Fuji Ultra Extreme pads on the block for VRM1 and VRM2.  I believe I used the XSPC pads for the RAM.

 

I am achieving these results with an extremely modest, but silent, mini-loop for the GPU only:

(1) XSPC EX240
XSPC X20 420 res/pump (single bay)
1/4" ID Tubing
(2) SilenX Effizio Thermistor Fans in Pull

Distilled water w/ biocide & silver plug/coil

The card has the stock BIOS on it for default clocks of 947/1250.  When I purchased it, it had a 290X BIOS flashed to it, which I believe was for the higher default clocks and potentially different default voltages.  

 

The card will not unlock to a 290X.

 

It has Elpida RAM.

This card is coming out of my HTPC/Wife's gaming computer where it was on light duty ~85% of the time simply driving my 60" 1080 TV for mundane tasks like watching movies and browsing the web.  The other 15% was my wife playing Batman AK or ROTR.  

 

It has been 'fed' by a more than sufficient EVGA SuperNova 850G2 PSU throughout it's life in my HTPC.

 

I benched it briefly using FFXIV benchmark after receiving it to see what it was capable of:

 

** Your results may vary **

 

Completely stock power/voltage it ran at 1075/1275

 

The 'Sweet Spot' I found for gaming was: 50% power  +25mV  1100/1350

 

Maximum clocks of 1200/1350 with 50% power and +175mV.  Pushing more than +175mV caused a hard lock.

 

** Your results may vary **

 

It's not a golden chip, but it has been reliable for me and my wife to power my HTPC and occasionally game at 1080 resolution.
