Overclock Update:

I got my Alphacool waterblock installed on the MSI R9-390x. I swapped out most of the supplied thermal pads for Alphacool Eisschicht 11w pads. (stock are 3w) I left the back side thermal pads stock since they dont matter that much.

Tested the temps with MSI Afterburne/Kombuster and they were too low for me to be happy. I overclocked it from the stock 1080/1500 to 1180/1650 with little effort. Temps got a bit warmer, so left it there.

Ran Kombuster at 1280x720(default size) until temps evened out (~10 min).
Kombuster(stock): 133fps
Kobbuster(oc): 144fps
CPU: 39c
GPU: 55c
GPUVrm: 87c:
DeltaT:~7c

Ran a 15min test on CPU and GPU with the AIDA64 stress test.
CPU: 58c
GPU: 47c
GPUVrm: 58c
DeltaT: ~5c

Firestrike:
score: 12,453
graphics: 14,538
physics: 13,979
combined: 5,561

All in all, pretty successful with little effort.

Well, I broke down and decided to change out the waterblock on my 390x. The Alphacool is quite good, but I'm growing tired of how restrictive it is. I have to run the D5 pump maxed out just to get it through the darn thing which adds noise. So, I just ordered the EK block and it should be here next week.

Well, got the EK block installed. I used the remainder of my 11w thermal pads instead of the stock EK 3.5w pads.

Ttemp tests were run for 10 minutes.

---AlphaCool Block---

Kombuster(oc): 144fps
CPU: 37c
GPU: 55c
GPUVrm: 85c:
DeltaT:~7c

Ran a 15min test on CPU and GPU with the AIDA64 stress test.
CPU: 61c
GPU: 50c
GPUVrm: 60c
DeltaT: ~8c


---EK Block---
Kombuster(oc): 144fps
CPU: 39c
GPU: 50c
GPUVrm: 64c:
DeltaT:~10c

Ran a 15min test on CPU and GPU with the AIDA64 stress test.
CPU: 57c
GPU: 43c
GPUVrm: 46c
DeltaT: ~7c

Flow rate is greatly increased which makes me very happy.

Congrats on the bouncing baby EK FC block. cheers.gif

I am really starting to feel my Oats as a long time member of OCN. Why did we go back to this system again?

just discovered this whilst looking for similar scratch build layouts to one im about to start.

this is amazing.

wondering if you have any of your measurements still? im only doing atx and air cooling but im sure some of your measurements would carry over into my build. saves me guessing or pulling apart my current system to work out distances.
