that is my problem as well.

also, if i use watt at the wall, that is way different than what some hardware reviews report. maybe the card takes 250, but at the wall that would be around 290W


what temps does te 290 run with 800-880kH @ 250-300W?

Yeah, 290x is way warmer then 290 and 290 seems to give the best hash/watt...
Even when you don't mine it tends to run at 95C under full load.

Temperature =/= Heat-Wattage-Energy

Forget about the 95c temps, they are the normal operational temps for the new cards.

290x running at 95c? did he undervolt and have a good fan blowing at it?

Thinking about trading my three Radeon HD 7970s for a Radeon R9 290X... yes, I'd lose hash rate, but I'd be able to game on my PC again.

Yup, under load it caps at a steady 95c.

Bunch of fanbois and pc illiterates in here...

AMD created a new powertune thingie for these new cards, do the research before posting random shit to up your post count (LaudaM and company)

That doesn't matter. The software is capping it at 95c else it would go higher.

Still no body mention about voltage, when I reduce my voltage for my 7950 the temperature go from 85 to 65. So I believe 290x and 290 can also reduce its temperature from 95c to maybe 75c?

Prime example of trash posts...

Temp is capped at 95c by software, you can cap it lower if you want using powertune...you can also change fan speeds and mod the bios or use Asus Gputweak to change voltages and whatever you want. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to do some actual reading before blabbering random garbage like you do man. Gotta love upping the post count with useless shit...

I don't understand why would people want the temperature to go higher then 95c? isn't 95c like going to burn your GPU already?

Who do you really cares if Radeon R9 290x is capping at 95c? It is only about 78c slightly overclock and undervolt...

Don't you guys think there will be price cuts soon?
Should you get a 7950 now or wait for price cuts? What's the best strategy profit-wise?


No price cuts and go with 7950 or 280X.

Temperature =/= Heat-Wattage-Energy

Forget about the 95c temps, they are the normal operational temps for the new cards.

No they are not!

290x stock is PURE amd crap, overheated throttled shit

100% true. 290X can't run games without throttling, that's how bad cooling is.

Not true, you fall for biased reviewers claims...guys using stock settings. Stock is for gay people who don't know how to configure their hardware properly. The stock quiet bios fan curve is designed to keep temps down and consumption in check, that's why it throttles.
If you want max performance you simply create a manual fan curve with a higher fan % and off you go.

What reviewers when people on forums report same results?
If you want max performance you put water block or custom cooler on card and get rid of stock amd shit.

Well, water block & custom cooling is expensive. I rather wait for retail release with after market cooling.

If you are going too use these only for mining you would want them as cheap as possible IMO.

I agree but I don't expect same price for models with aftermarket cooling.

Aftermarket cooling will be an additional 50USD or so.

I think someone stuck a IceQ X2 on a 290X and reported temps around the 70s.
