Yes I really love the look of that card, im going to buy that with a brand new psu just to be on the safe side, most likely a silverstone 750w gold. I have never had a DOA from any manafacture to be honest

As a recently new r9 owner, I will say that while the card is a beast, it has been a rollercoaster of frustration trying to resolve that flickering issue. (I THINK I currently have it resolved, but I've thought that a few times already, only time will tell now.)

FYI the steps I've taken to resolve the r9 flicker:
Refreshed Windows, Completely re-installed windows, updated/cleaned my drivers with pretty much every version since 2012, switched from an HDMI to DVI cable, and finally the last thing I've done is set my minimum clockspeeds in Afterburner to 250/400 instead of 150/300 that it keeps downclocking to when idle. Strange though last I checked on my lunch break, while streaming netflix, I didn't notice anything wrong, but in afterburner it showed the memory clock jumping between 400 and 1400 over and over, again there was nothing wrong performance wise so I'm not sure if it mattered, I'll be testing more once I get off work tonight.)

I really hope I can get it working because I don't want to deal with sending it back, and like I said it is a total beast, when it does work, it plays anything and everything at their best settings.

It's a Powercolor r9 270X, not sure the exact model at the moment, but if you just google r9 flickering you'll get tons of pages about it, seems to be widespread on alot of r9 cards. From what I can gather it's a problem with the drivers and the clock speeds being underclocked too far when the card is viewing 2D applications. Since changing my minimum clock speeds I haven't had the issue but like I said I did notice the memory clock jumping around, but without seeing anything obviously wrong on the screen it's hard to tell that anything was actually wrong with it.

sapphire fixed it with a bios update

Yea from what I hear Sapphire and MSI released their own drivers that fixed it, I checked PowerColor's site and downloaded their drivers but it did nothing. Assuming my clock change fixed the issue for me, is the memory clock jumping like I described something to worry about? I haven't noticed any decrease in performance when playing my games. And *knocks on wood* worst case scenario if I see it pop up again, would it be the end of the world if I tried to install Sapphire or MSI drivers? From what I can tell AMD drivers seem to be fairly universal between their cards, way more than NVidia.

Do you have another computer you can put your card in?

I don't have. I would not say that the mobo has an issue here, because before I'm using this mobo with another card from the green team which is gtx 460 and I did not encounter this kind of problem. It all started when I upgrade / switch to red and which I'm currently using right now the 270x. Is there a possibility that the PSU is the culprit here? Or it is just a driver related issue?

Is this good for an R9 280x? 1150 core & 1700 memory.....

My Devil 270X with i7 3770k runs on a 450W PSU, and my R9 290 and 4770k run on a 650W; so you have plenty of power to spare.  Unless your PSU is faulty then it is unlikely that it is causing the problem.  It couldn't hurt to test with a different PSU if you have one lying around.

 

You have stated multiple times that you have re-installed windows and used numerous drivers so I don't think that is the issue.  For best stability you should use 13.12  Use Display Driver Uninstaller to scrub all previous drivers.

 

Here is something else to try because we are really running out of options.  Download Sapphire Trixx and try downclocking the GPU core a little to say 1150.  Also, try giving it a little extra voltage.  My card at default 1180/1400 runs at 1200mV.  Try bumping it up to 1225mV, or even a little higher, and see what happens.

 

Just because your GTX 460 worked prior to you switching cards, doesn't mean that a problem couldn't have arisen with your MoBo now.  Try reinstalling the GTX 460 if you still have it and see if it exhibits the same issues.  Make sure to scrub drivers if you do so.

 

Every ASRock board I have owned has had issues with PCIe or RAM slots.  My ASRock 890FX Extreme4 PCIe failed, Z77 Extreme6 PCIe failed, Z77 Extreme6 replacement RAM DIMMs failed, the 2nd replacement Z77 Extreme6 wouldn't clock RAM over 2000MHz, and my ASRock Z77 E-ITX PCIe slot failed. 

 

ASRock's RMA process has gotten much worse since I first started purchasing their products back in 2009.  I don't really suggest them as a choice for motherboards anymore.  My RMA for the ITX board was a nightmare.  I went around in circles via e-mail for 2 weeks, then didn't hear a response for 1 month.  I finally sent one last e-mail complaining about the ridiculously long wait and the RMA was approved the next day.
