Sure thing, it's definitely a good point to raise. I think a lot of people fail to understand the importance of a quality PSU.

Out of curiosity how did the R9 290 crossfire compare to the single Fury?

Prolly about 40% faster if the game supports crossfire.

The difference between the 290 and Fury is not much but that difference is enough to make use 4K Freesync monitor with a single Fury. Maybe a tiny oc to help maintain the minimum fps required.

Crossfire 290, if supported, is 40 to 50% faster than a single Fury. But it's oftentimes not just game support that you need to worry about. There's issues like flickering, microstutter, waaaay higher power usage, etc. that you need to deal with. I play the Witcher 3, and while i did lose about 15 fps (70 down to 55 in 3440x1440), my overall experience of using the single card has been smoother.

You're still seein downclocking with clockblocker active? I mean, I've seen it budge down a MHz or two but not serious enough to concern me. If pure still seeing large down clocks I'm wondering if it's across multiple 3d applications or just one.

My only other suggestion is to create a specific 3d profile in AB.(and also have a separate 2d/desktop/browsing profile) I used to do that when I had a downclocking problem. Then only used clock blocker when that didn't work. Only problem with doing that now with crimson is it registers as a 3d app in Riva Tuner. So to get around that just have Crimson not run at start up; so you're higher clocks don't kick in when just web browsing.

Thanks for the input. Just to be clear, this issue is now resolved with a workaround. smile.gif I should update the OP. A -12mV undervolt was all the card needed to stop downclocking itself. With +50% power limit, I'm now hitting 1125/550 clockspeeds.
