High end video cards too hot and too loud?

The 290 runs hot and the stock cooler isn't really sufficient. I'd recommend waiting for some non reference models.

Again. You can set the fans to any speed you want above 45% and the problem is fixed. I don't care if you say it gets louder. The fact is you can make it run at 65-73c under max load with a 70% fan.

You're seriously only going to hear about the issue on the R9 280 and 290, and X versions of both. You can wait for the third-party companies to get their shipments of cards so they can slap on their cooling solutions, or as you say, get it now and purchase the cooler and install it yourself later. I'd say they run you about $30, maybe a little more if you get one with multiple fans.


Nah the good coolers usually cost $50-$100. I don't think any have been released yet though.

And that's a BOSS cooler.


I doubt it's that great. Most custom coolers made by GPU manufacturers help with temperatures but don't improve noise that much (ie. you'll still hear the fan while gaming). Only the best coolers cost $100 but I think it'll be hard to find something lower than $50-$60 with good fan control.

Well TC cares about noise so obviously ramping up the fan speed is not a good solution. Personally I hate fan noise as it detracts from the ambiance of a lot of games.

Well i do care that it gets louder :P

BUT you are right that this is indeed a good solution for the over heating issue.

I will have to chose one or the other i guess. But with good headphones this may be a good choice. Though is it not too be of a push for the fan? Or will the durability of the fan still be the same?

My card wines when I max out and have everything on high settings. When I have low to med settings, depending on the game, I barely even hear the fan.

You can usually undervolt the card an turn the fans to 20-35% for full load temps. That's what I did for my gf's little HTPC
