Watercooling needed for over-clocking R9 290 TRI-X OC Graphics Card (4GB, HDMI, PCI-E)? Tags: Overclocking Water Cooling Graphics Cards HDMI PCI Express Last response: June 4, 2014 5:45 AM in Overclocking Share MadeInUK June 4, 2014 4:55:14 AM Hey guys, So I heard from my brother that I shouldn't overclock the card in the title without watercooling as it will overheat badly, and i'm not prepared to spend a 100 more to watercool it. Does anybody know if this is true?
