Try to check vga temps. VRM temps are very important too.

Problem with 280x is that they work fine out of the box. So, I don´t see any solution updating the bios, but if you have a custom newer pcb, maybe they made some mistake, and a bios update could work.

Look for a compatible bios from the vga techpowerup database and try.

I feel like VRM tems may be an issue. I have the horrid dual-x design and rev 2 (8+6 pin).

Anything I can try running for an hour or 2 at 100% fan speed?

You can run some benchmark in loop, heaven or valley maybe. But fan wont reach 100% unless you set it to that speed. Check vrm temps on gpu-z.

Or let gpuz on background and play some game for an hour or two, gpuz will save max temps for every item.

If you don't have a second display to see GPU-Z while gaming/benching full screen you can check log to file.

@rykoshet

If using it with a different monitor/ monitor cable / different system doesnt solve it you have a broken card. The card you bought should be one of the more stable gfx cards, and should not exhibit this behavior. Please do RMA it if problems persist.

Will run a few tests tonight while logging with GPU-z and see if any patterns emerge.

I have a hopeful feeling that it may only be the HDMI port that is the problem. I hope the same tests under DVI will yield no issues.

I am hesitant to RMA because I have heard sapphire is a nightmare to deal with, and my 280x came used (though only 1 month old)

Will give you feedback. Any chance the factory OC is not the most stable?

UPDATE: I ran Unigine Heaven for a while on Ultra settings (extre tes, 8x AA) and had no issues, over DVI. I hit 70*C with no issues. Will try Witcher 2 over DVI (and see if no issues arise) and will also try Heaven over HDMI.

I am hopeful/thankful it is only the HDMI port. Is this a bad sign though of bad things to come, or can I just write it off as a bad port? I can live without HDMI.

UPDATE 2 --> certainly is not the HDMI port. I am screwed.

I will upload my GPU-Z in case anyone can help me before I RMA. The graphics card does not just fail always -- for example, I played 5 hours of company of heroes 2 with no problem. And I ran the Heaven benchmark until 70*C with no issues. But sometimes it just fails.

Anyway, attached is the spreadsheet. I crapped out somewhere near the end, I believe at exactly 20:29:05

http://m.uploadedit.com/b041/1413852359810.txt

Prior to that, I am running Heaven benchmark (see 99% utilization at 20:20:00 and around there. I start testing Witcher 2 at around 20:26:06

So there are 3 minutes in which I am playing without issues, and then BAM, red vertical lines...

Any help is greatly appreciated. Otherwise...RMA frown.gif

A few more things you could try: underclock the card, plug it in a diff system. Try diff monitor. It sounds like you're gonna have to rma though. Do you have a receipt? Perhaps you can rma through the reseller, which should be less painfull.

I experienced black screen on my MSI R9-290x Gaming 4G after monitor waking up. It's not critical, because i use WIN+P hotkey, and got picture after that. But i noticed some interesting and strange moment. Display normally waking up, if i set 5 min display shutdown in Windows Power Settings. But if i set 45 min, i got BS after display waking up. Some issues with Zero Core i think.

No issues in games, desktop, youtube or else.

same case as mine...although it didn't matter how many minutes I set. It would either BS right after waking up or few minutes to an hour thereafter...as long as the monitor went to sleep, it would BS. I also think it has something to do with Zero core, since it won't happen unless zero core had kicked in. And of course, there are many causes of BS, this is just one of them.

Right now i am on 14.9 WHQL drivers and don't remember such issues on 14.4.
Yesterday i was away from PC and when i came back after 3+ hours - no BS, lol.
