I'm a little perplexed why GPU-Z is showing me that card 1 in my R9 290X crossfire rig is idling at.. 93c
. I have just booted Windows 8.1 and I've been sitting at the desktop the entire time. No games played, nothing weird running, just Google Chrome and GPU-Z. Latest beta AMD drivers installed from the website, as of Friday when I the cards were delivered from Newegg.
I do have a multiple monitor rig, but this is with all but one monitor disabled, only one monitor is active during the entirety of this testing.
The secondary crossfire card is much cooler at a breezy 68c.
And this is WITH my special "increase the volume of air output" modification in place on both cards.
So: why are the cards at 1000 Mhz and why is the memory clock on the primary card bouncing around to 1250 MHz when I am doing nothing but sitting at a Windows desktop?
