post #5161 of 9745
Ok I did it! I painted the shroud of my Gigabyte R9 280X REV1.0 for the fun of it. I should have been more patient painting it but it came out pretty good. I used Tamiya TS-49 bright red color which is a popular color and it closely matches the red of my Corsair AF120 fan rings. I'll be getting red sleeved 24 pin mobo cable and red sleeved PCI-e cable soon. Let me know what you think guys!

@Devildog83 What's the BIOS version of your Devil R9 270x?
Mine is 015.040.000.000.000000

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I would try to run a benchmark to see where the fans automatically run at, if you see the temp getting too high cut the benchmark short..no need to abuse the card anymore than necessary.  If you aren't on driver version 13.12, scrub with DDU and go back to it. 

If you have any software like afterburner, Trixx, Precision X, etc installed remove all of them. 

Check Catalyst Control Center and make sure that Overdrive hasn't been enabled to alter fan profiles.

Oh I forgot to revert back to 13.12, I also report this issue to Powercolor on Thursday, April 3, 2014 and they instructed me to use the driver from them which is I think more advanced than 13.12. This is what they said

This driver is newer than 13.12 and it is a WHQL driver. But this driver just AMD release to us not on website. I hope this driver can help you solve the problem, if it can’t solve, please do RMA service to check card.

Polar

I have reported this issue to Powercolor last week and two of their guys replied, the first one sent me the driver (newer than 13.12) and the other is telling me to flashed my VBIOS I will not post the links because he tells me to >

  Test their drivers and even that BIOS to see what happens. 

 

If you can't get the fans to run on auto properly you may have to RMA the card.  Hopefully they can do an advanced RMA and ship you a new card first.

 

It's not that difficult to change fan settings, but Auto is convenience and it SHOULD work.  Let me know what happens...I'm going back to building in this Corsair 250D now

I have, but it has been quite some time since I have played around with it.

 

This would probably be a good place to start reading

You could always contact PowerColor tech support for some specific instructions as well.

This is the instructions from Powercolor tech
Quote:
The fixed BIOS attached.
Pls. try to flash the BIOS by following steps.

Please make sure you update it in pure DOS mode, here you can see
information about how to create USB Pendisk boot DOS,
http://www.overclock.net/ati/671675-how-flash-your-5850-bios.html

1. Extract BIOS file and utility to hard disk or USB Pen disk. Here is an
example of using USB Pen disk.
2. Restart your PC in MS-DOS mode.
3. In DOS prompt, change directory to your BIOS location, for example,
C:\>fixed\ 4. Type "atiflash.exe -ai", this is to check your VGA card
adapter location. If you have only one adapter, the adapter should be at
0(zero).
Type "atiflash -s 0 back.bin" to save your original BIOS.
(backup.bat) This can help you keep original BIOS.
Then type "atiflash -p 0 F3401LAA.ROM -f" to update VGA BIOS. "-p"
is to program, "-f" is to program forcibly. (update.bat) 5. Restart PC to
finish when you see "Restart System To Complete VBIOS Update" message.

If you still have same problems, after you done the procedure above, I think
it is better way to do RMA service.

One more thing, please do not release the BIOS attached to the public.
Flashing the BIOS may result the damage to the card.

Is ATIFlash and ATIWinFlash the same?

Anyone has any idea why I can't underclock my Asus r9 280x? I can overclock it but whenever I try to underclock eg. 1070/1575, it stays at the stock clock of 1070/1600 doh.gif

EDIT: apparently in game it shows 1070/1575 but gpu-z doesn't show it. weird enough doh.gif

I believe that with VBE7 you can make a new fan profile for your gpu.
A nice tutorial on flashing your gpu Bios can be found here
UEFI(Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is a standard firmware interface for PCs, designed to replace BIOS (basic input/output system).
I believe that the 270X Gaming supports both legacy and UEFI BIOS,meaning if your computer has an older legacy BIOS or a newer graphical UEFI BIOS then this video card will work on either one.
food for thought

Thank you mAs81 for response.

I didn't try CCC fan profiling, but I will. Are you sure that is possible to make custom fan profile with CCC?

About crashing games. Only a few games are affected, and I know that is not problem with graphics card, but punkbuster and game-bad-code.
I have Maximus IV MBO and Win7 / 64bit

"warning" I am talking about, I read it here: (first post)
http://www.overclock.net/t/1395490/ati-hd-7950-7970-bios-mod-thread

VBE7 is not officialy support R9 cards, but R9 270/280/290 are same cards like HD 7870/7950/7970

Hi

I just bought an ASUS r9 280X GPU but facing some problem

When I first boot the system I get the intel splash screen. If I leave the system alone, it goes to a BLACK SCREEN (Not Blank Screen) with a 0_ in the bottom right hand corner . On the actual motherboard, I get 00 on the LED display.


I have tried to do is Boot to a Bootable USB and/or Bootable DVD

I simply select the USB or DVD. What happens? As soon as I press the enter key on my keyboard, a little 0 pops up in the bottom right hand corner of the monitor. The system does not even attempt to process my command to boot to the media. It's like it is predeterminedthat it will not boot no matter what I do.

I was told that 00 on the LED means the board is in normal boot state and that there may be a problem with the board. I have no other tricks up my sleeve when it comes to making this board boot. I have removed all unnecessary devices and tried the most basic boot to no luck.

Processor -i7 2600k
Motherboard - DZ68ZV
Graphics Card - ASUS r9 280X DirectCU II TOP
PSU - AX750

Ok I run furmark a while ago, and this is the results. All settings are default. The fan speed is set to auto, and jump to 50% at 72c immediately.


And this Is the weird part, look at my clock speed on pic no. 1 it only shows that it is 1150. And after the burn in benchmark this is what It shows. GPU core clock and memory is 1180 / 1400. With the maximum temp that I get 81c with 60% fan speed (auto) No BSOD Occurred. thumb.gif


It only shows that the HSF are in good shape. And it is not the auto fan settings which causes my system to BSOD while gaming. Sorry for pointing that one out. I guess I've made a mistake. One thing I noticed, look at my 12v rail. Is it normal while running furmark the sensors shows that it is 11.9 / 11.8 only? My PSU is Corsair CS650M 80+ Gold, which I think its kinda low for the 12v rail right?

I'll continue to run the testing with the ram at 4th attempt, ram no2 installed on slot no.1 of the motherboard and see how it goes.
