Does your card have some little blue blinks in the screen and some times some horizontal green lines for a blink of a second? when you benchmark or is it completly free of artifacts(don't know if you call these lines artifacts)

I received a XFX R9 290 today, it doesn't unlock. ( I run stock AIR cooling)

I've been using it from this afternoon till now and I experienced no problems, no black screens nothing, I am running the Catalyst 13.12 driver.

I ran valley Extreme HD preset on stock settings



I did a little bit of gaming Battlefield 4 and it's running on Ultra 2560x1600 2x MSAA above 60FPS almost all the time.

And then I tried overclocking the card however I am very inexperienced in overclocking GPU's so I have a couple of questions.

I tried running 3Dmark Firestrike extreme on core voltage +100 in MSI AB Beta 17, 1200MHz Core, 1450 MHz Memory and +50 Power Limit% it does complete however it had 1 time some green horizontal lines in the screen during the benchmark and some sort of blue shadow appeared somewhere on the right side of the screen.

When I tried 1500Mhz memory OC it crashed. so max I can get is 1400MHz on these settings.

This was the score:



This means my OC isn't stable right? I down clocked it to 1180 Core and had no problems during 3Dmark Firestrike extreme, I played 20 Minutes of BF4 after that and everything was okay, max temperature was 80 degrees celcius and VRM1 59 Degrees and VRM 2 70 degrees.

These temperatures are okay right and I have some room left?

Now I read that I could go a little higher with the core voltage in MSI AB to +200mV with this: MSIAfterburner /wi4,30,8d,20.

At how much voltage does my card run then with this command?

And how much voltage is it with +100mV, is GPU-z correct and do I need to look at VDDC, this showed 1,281 V during load in BF4 is that the actual voltage I am running though my card?

How safe is it to set this in AB? when I have some room left qua temperature could I try this command to see if I can get to 1300Mhz Core clock or 1200 or 1250?

Also is it better to flash another bios on to my card, if I would want to get some more performance out of it, if I switch the switch on my GPU to the other side I could flash another bios in there and my original XFX bios will still be on there when I switch back right?

If anyone would be willing to help me out a little bit with these questions I would be grateful.

Ok so I finally got my XFX R9 290 biggrin.gif

Please add cooled with an EK FC water block and a mostly swiftech loop.
In Terms of unlocking is it worth trying as you can see in the pic of the die I have one of the 2020 chips

Are custom fan profiles even needed for the stock cooling on the r9 290 sapphire. My temps never go over 90 at full load and I cant hear the gpu over case fans

Yes, those temps are okay.

I would not use the +200mV tweak for Afterburner unless you are willing to risk your card. It is unlikely that any damage would occur at +200mV, but if you aren't on water cooling I wouldn't try it. Just my opinion though. If you really do want +200mV though, use the new version of Trixx, which supports it with no tweaks.

There really isn't any reason to flash a different BIOS unless you wanted to put the Asus one on and use GPU Tweak instead of Afterburner (it also allows higher voltage). But you can flash to one side of the switch and still have the default BIOS on the other side, so it is pretty fail-safe if you wanted to fool with it.

If it's not throttling then I'd say no but when I run mine at stock clocks I run up the fan to about 60% or maybe a bit less to keep temps down and I still don't hear it outside the case. For me this just insures my clocks stay up the whole time.

My only beef with Trixx is the lack of Aux voltage. I can't hit my same memory clocks on Trixx as I can with AB using aux @ +13 frown.gif

Which sucks because I ONLY used trixx on my 7970's, I love it so much.
