Basing opinions on Polaris OCing using how Hawaii OC's (a chip that uses almost three times the power) is just fundamentally flawed.

I'm sure Polaris will OC incredibly with its Reference version, more so than Hawaii on Aftermarket Coolers, that's a given, the whole conversation came from this.

Which is "Fundamentally wrong", and him saying that he could get 1200MHz on his 290 with the reference cooler, with only 67c on 100% Fan Speed, which is fundamentally BS.

My impression was that he was talking about upcoming AMD cards, not Hawaii. Its OT anyway, but if referencing the 290X then yeah, there's no doubt that non-reference cards OC much better. The 290X blower was one of the worst reference coolers ever made...

Fundamentally wrong for Zealotkiller, he's got 67c - 100% Fan profile with an Overclock of 1200MHz on his reference 290.

290s got the best Reference Coolers in history thumb.gif

You guys do realize not all cores are equal when it comes to ability to overclock or power use, right?

The cooler you keep a 290/X the less power it uses and not all come with the same volts, let alone the performance differences you can get per clock with the different bioses.

In term of raw strength, that jet cooler is one of the most powerful blower ever introduced (it's loud, of course). And he said he could reach 1200 MHz, but to hold it for a long playing session is another story.

He said 67c as well, again, not even my aftermarket double D would stay below 85c at stock, 90c for 50% power target without voltage increases.

If you are getting the same effective cooling at 47% as you are at 100% fan speed then there is obviously another factor at play. Instead of analyzing the issue, I suppose we can pick a case with restrictive airflow for a blower GPU and then proceed to bash the GPU for not performing.

Reading comprehension is not your forte so I will simplify it.

100% Fan Speed: Stock Speed

Anything less than 100% fan speed: Never even reaching stock speed.

Now you can Fanboy AMD to the moon and the stars while riding Lisa Su's dreams and hopes, that won't suddenly turn the 290X reference cooler into anything other than the worst reference cooler ever.

Mate, the ref fan of 290x at 100% is very powerful, it does have the cooling job done, albeit extremely loud. Meanwhile double D is not recognized as one of the beyond average on the market, if not near the bottom.

One more thing, whether a card can reach 1200MHz or not is depended on the chip and the power circuit, not much on the cooler. However, for a card to hold that high clock, it does need a good cooler

Where were all of these marvelous Reference 290Xs capable of hitting 1200MHz on Reference Coolers while running at 67c? Oh yes, in AMD's fanboys dreams, because I could never find one in reality, I'm amazed people think this is even possible, anyone with a reference 290xs knows better.
