Is there any solution for my 600$ brick, please help frown.gif

Strangely the card still appears (wrongly) in GPUz when I put it in secondary slot, and I can flash BIOS into it. I really hope that it is still alive in some way.


Could you guys please give me a final verdict for my card? Is it dead or not? frown.gif

normally that shows when the driver is not installed. can you try installing the card on a different system? if it works there then somewhere along the line driver installation got messed up.

You could try using the BIOS switch on the card. Try the other position, maybe your current BIOS has some problems.

my main reasoning is the low vram limit and SLI based problems. also im quite interested in mantle.

do you think this is a good idea ? or should i hold out.

im only going ahead if i can sell and buy with no loss.
If you can sell your GTX690 at good price, then go ahead.

You won't disappoint! Don't forget to picked up Fujipoly thermal pad because EK stock thermal pad won't cool the VRMs good enough.

It's not BIOS problem unless the power failure happen while you're flashing the card. 290X should have dual BIOS like 290 right? If it's BIOS problem, you can always switch to second BIOS & boot from there.

If it's just normal usage while the power failure occurred & the card failed to work afterwards, most likely the card is faulty. I don't think you can do anything except RMA it. If you use custom cooler, put back the stock cooler & RMA the card.

Based on the screenshot of GPU-Z you posted after this (your) message, it seems the memory modules on the card is faulty.

I have a 290X.

Also I have a Koolance Waterblock on it. (check my idle temps in the screenshot)

Temps are amazing btw, and am about to flash a new bios to work with a voltage overclock. Get back to you soon.
What is your ambient (indoor) temp? What TIM you use?

Please note:
- The backplate does not serve as a standalone unit!

Too bad because EK would have sold a lot of those!
Do you know what screw size the reference card use? My stock coolers in the box & the box is under a pile of boxes. Kinda lazy right now to check myself. tongue.gif

If the stock cooler use M3 screws then the backplate should be compatible with reference cards. Regarding Tri-X cards....

This is reference (Sapphire) R9 290 card:-
(source)


This is Tri-X R9 290X card:-
(source)


Mounting holes locations look identical. If the Tri-X use M3 screws, the EK backplate might be compatible. Still, until someone try this, we should consider they likely not compatible.

As far as I know Tri-X cards are reference board w/ updated coolers.

Thanks. I tried few BIOS and can confirm that it is not BIOS problem. So I guess that you are right about the memory, maybe I screwed up when putting heatsinks on the memory modules frown.gif
Because it's XFX, I can't do RMA in Australia. Do you think that a computer store can fix this?
post #15070 of 43925
I'm here to say, that AMD powerplay is the worst thing ever in human history, tried literally every guide one can imagine, every setting, and no! power limit still ain't apply.

I ended up using the overdrive to apply it lol! neither unofficial overclocking method without powerplay helped, or reinstalling the drivers (DDU) and using AB to increase power limit, at once as i changed any setting, the screen flickers like mad, 3 driver reinstalls, and 30 mins + of different settings, nothing HELPS.

If anyone have similar issue, just use overdrive to increase it, it will work most likely. Also there is bug in AB, where you cant apply the exact volts/clocks.....it goes back to -/+ 5 or 10....rolleyes.gif
