    AMD Rolls Out Catalyst 14.11.1 Beta

    It's kinda funny how nVidia launch WHQL driver and AMD users has to stick with BETA drivers. I'm done with my 2x R9 290X GPUs. Better driver support @ nVidia.

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    A funny update. Coil whine is still there but it's less whine. Problem is gone haha. I came home from work last week, and found out that my PC had frozen in windows. (I do not use screen saver, but when to turn off the screen). It would not power up my screen so I had too power off the PC...

    Have AMD drivers improved overs the yrs? Are they better Now then Nvidia's?

    I have to say YES and NO. AMD drivers has become better, but they are too far behind nVidia when it comes to stable drivers. I was really stoked about going over to AMD and bought first a 7950, and later on another 7950 for CF. It was then I was starting to have trouble, terrible 144Hz...

    Sapphire 290 Vapor-X Temperatures

    Do not use Furmark to find a stable 24/7 OC. Furmark is way to heavy for your graphics card, and you can end up with a fried card. BF3/4, Metro or bench programs are better too use.

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    This is what I have tried to do: Remove fans from HK to a Fan controller, did not work. Isolate the sound card with some Liquid tape ( Electrical tape). Run all fans at 100% speed from the fan controller on the HK. This is what I have not testet, switching the bios from quiet to uber mode...

    R9 290-290X owners thread

    When it comes to GPU OC programs, I like to use MSI AB or Sapphire Trixx. For heavy OCing I like to use Trixx because of 200mV vs AB that only has 100mV, Preference cards from AMD is not good to OC because of useless mem that can't handle the pressure. But you guys should be really careful...

    R9 290-290X owners thread

    Never ever had a stock cooler on a GPU for more then 10min when I get a new card :) Stock cooler is noisy and bad. Now I have 2 290X with EK blocks. Water vs air cooling is huge difference for those cards. Running them on 1150/1375 and cards are never over 65C But I'm not happy with CFX, not...

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    Been testing since early today, and no luck. going to start from scratch and instead of raising the voltage, I'm going to see how far I can lower it and then take it from there. If this is not going to help, I'm going to see if I have some thicker thermal pads and throw it on the gpu instead...

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    It could work if you swap out our PSU, but in my case. I have tried 3 PSU's. The 1 I'm using now is a platinum PSU. lmgtfy is stepping on toes or telling a person that your dumb as f***. I have no problem using Google, and use Google daily. :) I don't care about the coil whine at all, all i...

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    First of all, most people Google their problems before they seek help on forums. And that is what I did. I tried many different questions just for getting the answer I needed, but there was no luck at all. And when someone post a lmgtfy I get a little pissed off. I do not post on forums just for...

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    It's how you tries to help others. Instead of just telling them to do this and do this, explain more. It would help allot more. But I have ordered 2 Ground Loop isolators, and will test it. But I think it's a blank shot in the dark. Going too try a USB sound card later.

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    Link RCoon. But how can a ground loop isolator fix my problem? Sound issue only occurs when I play games in CF mode, and it's working perfectly when I play games using 1 card. It's a really strange problem I have, but I want too try fix it :) Caps are sealed, so it's hard to re glue. Unless I...

    AMD R9 290X CFX Coil Whine, interfering with the game sound.

    Yes, have read it, and it's not helping me alot. Main problem is that 290X is using sealed caps, so there is not much to fix. Also tried V sync and other ways to limit FPS, coil whine is still there.

I did not have this problem when I got my cards, but got it while after I installed water blocks on them. I had to take them out of the PC and back in again. And then I got it. Also suspect that...
