I think even i change my casing i cant get this kind of temps because the minimum temp of r9 290 is 70c, so just want to know if its safe if i leave my case open and with a house fan blowing right next to it, im not comfirtable in 74c so id rather do this for lower temps is it safe?

If you mean the max safe temp for the R9 290 is 70c you are way off its actually as high as 95c before it even starts throttling. Anyway are you talking about idle temps or under load? Big difference.

You could run that thing 95C 24/7 and it would still be fine lol.

Are you sure? Why? 95c is too high? 24/7 at 95c?

Back when people used these cards to Mine they ran them 24/7 with temps hitting 95C for weeks to months and the cards never broke.


When these cards hit 95C the core boost will throttle down reducing temps then back to normal core etc etc. It will throttle before it even gets near causing hardware dmg.

And as fare as open case ya its fine if you can deal with the added noise. Do you have case fans setup in your build to evacuate the hot air in the case?

Leaving it open with a fan blowing is safe but absolutely unnecessary if your temps are around 74 degrees. As others stated before, this thing can go as high as 95.

If you have lower temps with the side panel off it's time to address your case and airflow.

A house fan blowing on it won't cool it any significant amount,or not at all anyway.

Lowering room temperature will be your best bet for now if you can.

you want your temps below 80 (imo). it can run 94-95, like others said, but they might start throttling. make sure you monmitor your vrm temps as well not just the core.

open case and the fan blowing in is absolutely fine. no pets or kids in the house, right?
