Vega is optimal but some might not want to fork out 200+. Just a budget option for some who already have 390 card.

Depending on the scenarios CFX outperform a single GTX 1070 in many tests which I think is good for a 2015 card.

Major con is of course you would need to have a 1000w PSU

but what about games? does the cossfire just works no matter the game?, I might consider buying another 390 cuz all this pandemic thing instead of buying a 5700xt

This article helped me alot, basically there are different ways Crossfire can analyze data even if the game doesn't officially support it.

https://gpuopen-librariesandsdks.git...plications.pdf

Some games like Fallout 4 won't benefit from it at all. Some games will get a massive boost.

I'm not sure I understand why the X is in front of my score? Probably because it's on a legacy bench? Just tinkering with the system to find its limits.

Hey I just become an owner of r9 390 gigabyte g1 gaming card. It is bloody hot and I am curious, is there any list of what coolers are compatible with this card? And maybe You know if changing fans will cool it a bit?

@Gorszkof - Before you do anything, remove the existing thermal paste and apply some Arctic Silver 5 or Arctic MX-4 (Or whatever you have lying around). These cards hit 90c under load due to the old thermal paste drying out and no longer making good contact with the heatsink.

I have the same card and just repasted mine earlier today. Haven't seen it past 65c since.

Well I cleaned it already and i put some new paste (some no name cause I am waiting for mx-2) and propably it is better because previous owner said it's get too hot and shut down itself (I am not suprised because it was very dirty and fans were not installed in a right way). Right now I don't have this problem but it gets to like 94c and is really loud. Only in gaming of course.

Same thing happened to me - you need to be very careful that the heatsink is making solid contact. The heatsink is finnicky to install as there is a large capacitor that has to sit inside of a cutout below the cooling fins, which can make it seem like it's been installed right but is just enough off that it doesn't have the mounting pressure it needs to cool properly.

Good God, You were totally right. MX-2 on GPU and few new thermopads and it dropped aroudn 10°C. Awesome.
It won't stop me from going full crazy with water cooling

X i thought was for extreme settings/bench scores?

I picked up 2 r9 390 nitros off fleabay, one of them had this issue as well. Thanks for the heads up!
