Would anyone be interested in this old R9 290 with heating issues

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It's a reference design R9 290; I took it apart and cleaned it the best I could and rethermal pasted it but the fan has a hard time cooling it down. With the built in fan profile it overheats and shuts down. If you crank the fans to 100% it stays cool enough to work without shutting down but sounds like a jet engine. 

 

Maybe a new cooler setup on it would resolve the issues, but it was a buddy of mines card for a couple years. It could have chip damage??? I ran FurMark on it at 100% fan speeds and it handled it.

 

* Some surface scratches on the chassis; where the stickers used to be.
