It dies so quickly that the temps are still only at 40 degrees or so.
Did you install fans in the Krakens, blowing air on the VRMs?
It's all just assembled as per the instructions. I left on the metal plate from the msi cooler that seems to be acting as a heatsink for the vrms
Any luck with your system aceytrixx ?
I've not been looking at my system as I'm actually away on holiday. Ill be back at it on Wednesday and my current thinking is just to take everything out and start again
The issues you've described could be caused by over tightening or a short somewhere.
Reduce the overclock on your CPU to about 4.0ghz and see if the PC still has problems.
Installing Corsair HG10 with H75 next week on my 290 and then following week if all go's to plan on the 290x..
Result so far from my reading is the HG10 is very good.
Well got a monitor 2nd hand today and I still get the graphic artifact on POST that I've mentioned before so looks like my R9 290 is the problem. I knew the monitor worked before I bought it and can also rule it out being the hdmi to vga adapter I was using as I'm using display port this time. Looks like it's RMA time.
I used to to get that graphical artifact on post too, do you have a Gigabyte or Z68 motherboard by any chance? I removed the graphic logo in the bios and all was fine. Other than that issue which doesnt affect anything the card always ran perfect.
I have gigabyte mono yeah but not Z68 chipset. If I wasn't on my phone I'd find the exact post where I first mentioned it so I could compare it you yours. This only started happening since I moved to AMD. Nvidia card I had before worked fine until it died. The screen would randomly go black and loose input from the card too. Not sure if this monitor has sorted that or not. I'll try turning the logo off in BIOS like you suggested.
Back from my holidays and managed to get some time at the pc today. Slightly loosened the cooler on the core and have successfully done two runs of 3d mark with no black screen. Ill see how it goes after some gaming this evening
Getting annoyed now. New monitor and 290 still black screens randomly whenever I'm browsing the web. It has to be card now surely? Since I'm using a display port cable directly from card to monitor.
What are the cards stock clocks? The issue you've described is usually caused by a faulty gpu.
Annoyingly if I do have to RMA it, my mobo chipset doesn't have onboard graphics so I'd be without a computer in the time it was away.
Copy my settings exactly. Save these settings to profile one and apply profile one using the 2d/3d profiles tab. Test for one week of gaming. If the problems are fixed, your gpu memory is unstable at the stock clocks and should be RMA'd.
Are they stock clocks? Try lowing the memory down to 1250
I have the HG10 with H105 on my 290x, and it's awesome. I haven't seen the GPU temp exceed 40C on stock yet; when upping voltage and overclock that it would get closer toward high 40~50C max
VRM temp is also very good as well.
