Description

I have had some components for a while but have just upgraded a lot of stuff including dual r9 290x's and the white cable extensions. I will soon be adding in a 4k monitor once 4k with freesync comes out in the next month or so. This thing kills anything it happens to play and it is quiet as hell with the case sound proofing.

This rig looks great! I always love the builds where people actually care about color coordination.

Very nice setup. Dont think I would change a thing other then hook this up to my 60" plasma. My XFX 290X kills every game I throw it at. Couldnt imagine the framerates your getting with two. lol

yeah having two of these cards plays BF4 at 140+fps. It goes well with the 144hz asus. Though I plan on going to 4k soon so thats why I got two of em. Couldnt pass up a $279 tag.

Beautiful build! The black and white is so classy! Do those cards run hot? I can't find too much on XFX's cooling solution

The top card does get up to about 79° when playing BF4 or Crysis in ultra but never gets any higher. As long as its below 90° I'm happy.

It's a great looking build. I wish I could build something of that caliber, but you know, life.

Build looks great, how does the top card do in crossfire? I would be worried about temps and the cards ramping up too loud.

  • 57 months ago
  • 2 points

These cards are pretty quiet even with fans at 100%. The top card tops out at 80° when plying bf4 or crysis in ultra. I'm working on some things to help with the top card breathing more but I'm fine with the hottest being 80°

Not bad, I tried running a MSI gaming 290x and it was just too hot and loud in the top slot above my 295x2.

Thanks! I'm using Silverstone Tek white cable extensions from amazon and NZXT white LED sleeved kit from Newegg.

Very nice build. I really like the color coordination. You gave me a good idea for the placement of the push/pull with the water cooler. I hope I can do my cable management half as well as you did. Great rig.

Great build ! Good color scheme (my favorite) and good cable management, congrats ! What do you use the monitor above for, if you don't mind me asking ?

  • 57 months ago
  • 2 points

Watching system temps and running afterburner when gaming. Also watching shows or streaming sports while gaming. Its very convienent.

Isn't it killing your neck though ?

  • 57 months ago

Not really. You get used to it quite easily. Quick glance up to check temps or lean back in my chair and watch a few minutes of a hockey game during bf4 matches.

How do you have it mounted up there? Did you need to mount a shelf on the wall or what?

COOl! How much does the CPU cooler blowing the hot air into the case effect your GPU and MB temps?

  • 57 months ago
  • 2 points

It brings in cool air, not hot. So it helps with the card temps.

  • 57 months ago
  • 3 points

So it is, literally speaking, "cool"

  • 57 months ago
  • 3 points

Well actually if the fans on the rad are intake it will be bringing in warmer than room temp air especially when the CPU is under load so it will negatively effect the GPU and mobo temps since the air is going through what is cooling the CPU. Though how much of an effect it has I do not know.

  • 57 months ago
  • 2 points

That looks amazing! One question, what way is the cooler pushing the air? Exhausting it out of the case would ruin airflow, sucking into the case would toast the cards. I recommend putting the cooler at the back exhausting.

  • 57 months ago

The fans on my radiator are bringing in cool air. Cool air goes through my radiator and then also onto the cards. I originally had the rad on the back with exhaust but my temps all around are better with it in front.

Congrats on a beautiful build! Your part choices are fantastic although I'm guessing the build was done before 840 evo's performance degradation problem was found.

I also have the same card, just the 290 version. It's an amazing card with beastly performance, but I find that it has noisy fan (to me, it feels less acoustically pleasing than the reference fan believe it or not). How are yours especially when you are running a crossfire setup?

How did you get the monitors to mount on top of each other?

  • 57 months ago

That GPU idle temps is because of dual monitor right? One of your R9's memory clock is stuck at max which raises the gpu temp.

I dont know if it's a bug but this is stopping me from going into dual or triple monitor setup.

Just curious if you tried to use different port (ie. DVI + DVI or DVI + DP) combination to see if the gpu memory clock will downclock

Looks great....a backplate would put the cherry on top tho

  • 57 months ago

Nice work mate, those are probably the best looking gpus I have seen! It is a shame they don't come with a backplate but the pcb is black so at least it's not a noticeable.

This may be a dumb question. Where is the crossfire bridge? I'm missing something.

  • 57 months ago

Newer AMD cards no longer require bridges. Its all through the pcie bus.

Dang your CPU is extremely hot while under load. What program did you use to run it under load? Also great *** build :)

Two 280x's will run hot so you will need a case with excellent air flow. Unless you are running two monitors or plan on going 4k you don't need two cards. If just gaming at 1080p go with the 970.
