    First time custom loop builder

    I've got just about everything except the cpu and sort of gpu. Right this minutes I'm running a Sapphire RX 460 2GB while trying to get this 295x2 sorted. Monitor is a AMH399U 40" 4k. I'm still using a 4690K and plan to upgrade once the freshness of Ryzen wears off and we start seeing sales (so...

    First time custom loop builder

    And I do agree with Bandalo about spending the money to do it right. That's my main thing is doing a custom loop the right way. There are full kits on ebay for like $150 and I'm looking at it like those are probably the cheapest materials and that stuff won't last and will wreck my parts.

    First time custom loop builder

    Case airflow is great. I could still use the stock cooler with it. Screw it I think I'm going to go for it. Worse case I'll sell the second H50 local. I'll see what XFX has to say in the next day or two.

    First time custom loop builder

    My psu is the Lepa (Enermax OEM) G1200 80+ Gold. Been using it for almost two years without issue. Quiet too. I'd love to use the air cooler, just need a working AIO! Would it be crazy to slap two Corsair H50s on it? I already have one that my wife is currently using (and doesn't need).

    First time custom loop builder

    I've been searching on Ebay and what not but haven't been able to find anything that wasn't ridiculously expensive. I'm in contact with XFX right now on solutions(waiting on their response for RMA possibilities but probably out of warranty, but I wanted to get advice on water cooling from those...

    First time custom loop builder

    Thank you. I've got the space for 2x240 with some adjusting in the front of my case. I'll probably need to remove the HDD bay for reservoir placement. So about the fittings and tubing, if I'm understanding correctly you're saying (as an example) to use XSPC fittings if using XSPC tubing for...

    That doesn't really help as you didn't give any prices or advice on parts.

    First time custom loop builder

    Recently I bought a 2nd hand R9 295x2 that came with a Koolance block and also the stock cooler. I don't have a custom loop but since the seller was including the stock cooler I pulled the trigger. Well, the Asetek AIO leaks so obviously the card isn't running right and it's forcing my hand to...

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Yep! Bought as a holdover until Vega. I'm constantly buying and selling hardware and was using a rx 480 4gb. At 1440p it started struggling so I wanted some more juice.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    I've tried googling to find if there is a replacement AIO but couldn't find anything. If anyone has a link that would be awesome. Or, a beginners guide for building a custom loop. Might as well put that Koolance block to use.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Tried the bottom pci-e slot and the fan didn't go nuts. Open device manager and there are the 2x290. Start loading up drivers. Open Chrome and then the fan goes nuts and drops display. I then noticed liquid on my desk where my case is. Probably about two ounces of coolant. So I unplugged the psu...

    Could bent pins on the motherboard cause an issue with a gpu?

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    I will try when I get home from work in 8 hours. When I shut the pc down the monitor dropped signal but the pc stayed running. Motherboard had code A0 and I had to do a hard shutdown. Now I'm thinking maybe the motherboard may be the culprit.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    Today both gpus show in Device Manager. When going to load the latest driver I receive an error that the driver is not digitally signed. When trying to install an older driver it states driver error contact AMD. This is so confusing.

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    I probably won't get a chance to test until Sunday as it's a friend's build with the CX750. If the card doesn't do what it's currently doing then I would think it's my psu that is the issue. I barely ran the card when I tore it back down so I can't say if the TIM contact was good nor bad. For...

    XFX R9 295x2 problems

    So about that, when I disassembled the stock cooler I noticed there was some liquid on the shroud. I immediately thought that possibly the gpu thinks it's overheating sending the fan to full speed and therefor shutting itself down. I can hear the pump and feel movement in the tubing though. I...

    No signal upon restart

    Just wanted to update on this issue. Last night I installed the refurb Gigabyte B85-D3V from Newegg. After loading W7 Ultimate the pc restarts as it should and signal is received. It's still a tad bit confusing seeing as the MSI H81 has ran flawlessly over the last three years or so. Oh well...

    No signal upon restart

    sinisterDei I agree. It's more so a huge annoyance and also, I plan to have this pc run 24/7 so I'd like it to display properly. I should mention that the cost of the new motherboard ($25) isn't bad because I was planning on having to buy an adapter for the case 3.0 anyways since the MSI...

    Just tested with the CX430. Same thing. The good news about the board is, although it's a refurb, it's only $25 and no rebate from Newegg.

    No signal upon restart

    I do have a CX430 laying around. However, I did just order a Gigabyte B85-D3V because it has the 3.0 header which the MSI lacks. Should be here on Wednesday and I'll test. I don't discredit it possibly being the psu but I find that weird since this system is using roughly 100 watts less than the...

    issues with Sapphire support for R9 295x2 card

    I thought I read they offered a 390x as a possible offer, but I think it was the MSI story. Anyhow, my condolences on this issue. I very recently had to resort to small claims court against TigerDirect over something different, but like you I gave them every chance in the world to correct the...

    issues with Sapphire support for R9 295x2 card

    Wow at this story. Just made my decision pretty easy to stay away from Sapphire unless some folks can provide some positive feedback from RMAs. As much as I've bashed Asus for their customer service and rma process, they are sending me a 390x to replace a 290x. For Sapphire to offer you one 390x...

    PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 Video Card Review @ [H]

    I have a 4k monitor so I can definitely use it. I haven't found any video reviews of this card which stinks because I'd love to be able to hear it. Speaking of rarity, 7990s and 295x2s are selling so high right now. Makes me wish I would've held onto my 7990 longer.

    PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Thinking very hard about getting this instead of two separate 390s. Only thing that worries me is the noise. I do have a Kraken G10 bracket to use for one 390 if I decide to get them. My thing is, I can sell the Razer mouse included for at least $50 making this gpu $450 ($225 for each 390)...

    GPU problem or something else?

    Recently got my AMH A399U monitor and am using a displayport cable. I'm also using a single Asus R9 290x DC2. All video is still having awful screen tearing with youtube, vlc player, and other flash. When playing Resident Evil 5 I ran gpu-z and never went over 72c, but the game would randomly...

    GPU problem or something else?

    Few weeks ago. Recently bought a Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 7 off of Reddit and did a fresh install of W7 Ultimate. By chance could a bad pci-e slot cause such problems?

    GPU problem or something else?

    Shipped off the DC2-OC and am now running my standard DC2. Same exact problem with screen tearing in videos using chrome and stuttering in firefox during full screen. I haven't gamed much using it, but running Resident Evil 5's in game benchmark I scored 59-60fps at 3840x2160 Ultra everything no...

    GPU problem or something else?

    As I said in the OP, no matter how aggressive I set the fan profile it reaches 94c. I could put it to 100% at 40c and ti will still reach 94c. Looks like the gpu is just bad.

    GPU problem or something else?

    Thank you for providing this information! Unfortunately after using driver 15.7.1 (non crimson) the problems persist. All aboard the Asus Wild Ride!! Hopefully things work out.

    GPU problem or something else?

    Problem started when using a Corsair 300R. Switched to a Phanteks Enthoo Pro and upgraded fans as well. Same issue. Zero dust. I wish it was as simple as that!

    GPU problem or something else?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, because I'm a few beers into the night, but isn't the 390x a rebrand of the 290x? Or was it the 390? I sure wouldn't accept anything less than a 380x but I'd imagine it would be a 390(x).

    GPU problem or something else?

    Thank you for the replies so far. Looks like I'm going on an Asus wild ride! I'm going to inquire about cross shipping. I've only owned the card for about 9 months so it's well within warranty. Hopefully they don't try to send me a 290 or a 280 or something like that guy with the 780ti!

    GPU problem or something else?

    Over the last two weeks my main gpu (Asus R9 290x DC2 OC) has been getting to 94c in roughly 15 minutes while gaming. Usually at least once while playing a game in 1hr or less any game will minimize. No matter how aggressive a fan profile I put the card always reaches 94c. Happened on the newest...

    Red team fan had to go Green. :D

I was also thinking of getting a controller. Also was thinking of how I could position fans inside the case to blow directly onto the gpus...

    Red team fan had to go Green. :D

    Asus aftermarket coolers. Running a Phanteks Enthoo Pro windowed case. And I agree about the gpus. That's why I really want to make it work. I just really do not like the temps!
