My System Specs

Default 290x

Currently running 3 290x powercolor reference cards under water in my main rig. I use it as my gaming/mining computer, it is 1 of 8 I am currently running. In regards to max hashrate on teh 290x OCing the cards will not maximize hashrate, in fact on 2 of my cards the opposite is true. 1 card has HYNIX memory which in the 290x's is the best to have, it run 985 kh. 1030 mhz core/1500 mem. The other 2 have Elpida memory which is utter garbage probably due to horrible laxed timings but those 2 cards will give me 880 kh max, with 930/1500 settings each. Its quite the lottery as to which ones you will get, bit I have a feeling with all the demand the newer cards will be shipping with the cheaper elpida.

Before my koolance blocks came ran 2 cards with reference blowers, sounded like blow dryers, so getting waterblocks is a really good idea.
