Using absolute temperature in a context where it's completely unnecessary is bad science.


Stay pleb.


But you're the one doing all the pleb moves.

I always want to use newer AMD cards, but the power consumption really bothers me. :(


At most, the R9 290X system pulls ~60W than a Titan system. That's hardly a deal breaker.


I don't like using electricity :(

If I was going to spend 500 or more on a GPU I wouldn't be worrying about the electricity it uses.

It'd be more appropriate if you replaced "290X" with "the 290X reference cooler".

pretty weak damage control, tbh

Heat your house also

The sad thing is, these tests were done on a test bench... otherwords, open.. temps probably be worse inside a case

Edit: During the summer you'll be roasting your nuts with that thing lol

Wow


But, my 9600gt does that, it's manageable. My case has 1 side fan and 2 rear fans.

It's designed to always try to run at 95C (or 1GHz, whichever comes first), regardless of what cooler is on it. A better cooler won't lower its temperature below 95C, but it will allow it to hit 1GHz more often. Water cooling will probably allow 1GHz all the time with lower temperatures.

Also, why don't people understand the relationship between temperature, thermal energy, and power?

You know that we've reached temperatures below what used to be considered absolute zero, right? The Kelvin scale doesn't carry much meaning any more.

Wait it's overclocking then underclocking itself?

That's going to be a stutter fest.
