Windows 7: Amd hd8000

Here is something quoted from the review I posted earlier which explains why the card takes so long to cool down. Also AMD say the card is fine for 95C

Quote:
The high power draw may also have something to do with the card's high temperature, as these are also the highest we've yet seen. However, this does come with the caveat that the card deliberately targets the 95C mark by default, hence the delta T results of around 70C once you've accounted for the ambient temperature. As for the idle readings, we typically take these after the load ones after a period of 5 minutes or so of inactivity. The card's fan profile is such that it typically drops very quickly to its lowest point of 20 percent speed once load is removed. The 95C target means the card has no motivation to cool down any quicker than this, so temperatures fell more slowly than we're used to seeing.

I wouldn't expect them to say any different. Really, what else can they say? Personally, I don't know of any component in a PC that can run at 95C for extended periods of time and hold up. The hottest component in a PC is normally the CPU; and I would not run mine at 95C for an extended period of time. If I did, I would expect degradation.

I agree, but AMD themselves have said that is safe, either It's true or they are going to have a lot of gpus to replace in the coming months.

The afterburner he was using is quite capable of doing just that.
I think he just went on about the looks because Nvidia had done such a nice job with the Titan/7 series cards. Comparing the 2 makers cards by looks in that price bracket the AMD card looks terrible but eventually 3rd party manufacturers will get their hands on them and release some really nice looking cards. So why they would delay the 3rd party sales is beyond me as you'd think they would want as many cards out the door as possible. Do you remember the XFX 290x that was posted somewhere? That was a really nice looking card.
As for custom fan profiles, That's a sore subject for me lol as i have to max my fans out to play bf3 I thinkn using Afterburner is a necessity with any gpu now as the manufacturers seem to j ust set the fan profile as quiet as poss whether it keeps the cards cool or not.

Yeah the cards will have to be safe at that temp for them to say it but think of the heat that will be going into your case from none reference card's if they can't tame them.
I've always gone for AMD and never had any problems so really hope those cards do well but at the moment it's not looking too good is it.

Edit: The Tech Spot review is up but i've not read it yet. AMD Radeon R9 290X Review - TechSpot

Edit2: Tom just posted another vid to clarify his thoughts on the card as he's got requests on facebook.

Are you thinking of this one mate, it was actually the 280X and you posted it in this thread a while back?

I don't think it can be done Steve reading the review Paul left it says it hits 95 c on default and the overclocking and the whole CCC has changed

There are cheaper ways to heat my cabin. For that reason I am out.

I will be going with the green team this time.

Shame, AMD almost got it right. But Shame on them for all the waiting they made us do for info.

I was looking into 780ti if I could Sli those I would be sitting pretty

If I do go with some new toys I will going the same route and put the 7970's in the bed with the 8350

even if I could sell these guys I would get a little over 500,00 for both

I didn't do too bad selling mine, I got 225/$364 for it, but that was just before the 280X was released so I got lucky.

I am getting bored of playing the waiting game now, I just finished waiting for weeks for the 290X and now it will be a few more weeks of waiting for the 780ti.
