How can I keep my R9 290 cool as its running high temps

Well I was watching a 360p video on youtube for 30 minues and it went to 92 degrees so decided to repaste and turn all heating off in house so its freezing cold.

Seemed "better" 44-48 idle so then put on a 720p video for 5 minutes and it rose higher and higher till it reached 95 degrees then pc shut off instantly.

I set fans to max on catalyst control centre and it didnt seem to make fans faster as pc is no louder than before.

Either I have a dodgy unit or its just that bad, it shouldnt go to 80 degrees average watching a 360p video

After playing some games the temps were in the high 60's so its just flash videos making the temps skyrocket.

That's really odd.

Update, disabling hardware acceleration on flash player sorts the issue.

Get a Accelero Xtreme III.


If this is anything like the Twin Turbo II; then YES.

Well unless it can support 3 legacy monitors without using the DisplayPort, I'm never going back to Radeon again. Perhaps if I was still gaming on a single monitor, I wouldn't mind AMD.
