R9 290 Reference/AIO Cooled Temp/OC

Question asked by dtnightmare1 on Sep 5, 2017

Hey all,

 

 

Just wondering if anyone has chucked an ID-Cooling AIO cooler on there reference 290 and what kind of temps you've gotten? I had the reference design and the temps would always be in the 90-96c range when gaming/benchmarking. I've recently bought a Dual AIO Hunter Duet Cooler from ID-Cooling and now I usually get anywhere from 55 - 65c but some games (Mafia 3) - (Enemy Front) it will go to 75 to 80c. And without limiting the FPS for Enemy Front, my GPU went to 94c. Not sure if this is normal or not? It also gets to a max of 69c in Unigine Heaven. And idles at around 31-35c.

 

 

CPU seems to be cooling fine as it sits at 20-25c at idle and doesn't usually go past 50c at full load.

 

 

I've also tried to OC the card by about 10mhz core and it's resulted in black screens and after I restart, AMD tells me that it was unstable and has reverted to default settings, which I think is odd as I've herd that the cards are quite overclockable.

 

 

Anyone had any similar issues?

 

 

I currently have the GPU and CPU pump plugged into the CPU_Fan header and the 2 radiator fans plugged into a CHA_Fan header and I've plugged the onboard GPU fan into the GPU fan header. Not sure if that's correct.
