re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts


r9 290 has arrived. Will post bench screenshots.

It is an overclocked version. 980/1250. This is bone stock.





ETA: 8350 is just set to 4.5 for stability since I'm on air at the moment.

Are you going to run that 8350 underwater or are you going to upgrade it?

I still haven't pushed my 4770k yet. Wish the h220 was on sale when I bought this pos h100i

yeah, I'm going to put the 8350 underwater till something like x99 comes out. Then I'll probably upgrade.

I could probably get 5.2 stable out of my 8350 if I had a good loop. I could run at 5.0 with my h100i, but it was really cutting it close as far as temps were concerned. I usually ran it at 4.8 for daily use.

I think I have a cpu bottleneck with just this one card. GPU usage during combined testing is only around 50% at it's peak.

Which 290 did you get?

Edit: I may run my stock setup on 3dmark later today. I haven't been on by PC in forever

It's a XFX OC black edition with a reference cooler. Got it for $315 on the ebayz.

I was trying to get that card but never pulled the trigger. I have the powercolor pcs 270x right now as a place holder since no one has any e-peen anymore. There are also no games coming out anytime soon that warrant an upgrade. I've been playing cod4 and insurgency, which my card runs at 1440 more than well enough. I recently played dungeon defenders on 360 and had a fun time playing it. I plan on buying it when it goes on sale

I did order these keycaps yesterday for my das. Cant wait to use it finally

Edit: I also have splinter cell blacklist and AC4 keys that I'm looking to trade for some games. I'm pretty sure they're both uplay keys.

I'm downloading BF3 again, since I'm pretty well burned out on everything else. Might try some DayZ later. CS:GO can run 144fps off of 2 acorns glued together, so it's not really a test.

Downloading origin now and doing that same.

BTW, I like Windows 8.1 more than 7, and it's not really close

I really do too. I switched back to 7 a while back when I was trying to solve the mysterious death of one of my 7950s and just haven't switched back yet. I loved not having to have display fusion for multiple monitors.

Coyote or Ilikelsutoo, do y'all have any modded bios for 270x? My voltage is locked in afterburner

I don't think anyone has bothered to build one for 270x. Try Trixx.
