Hey guys I'm going to share my experiences before I either sell or attempt an rma. This is not related to memory 100%. I have a sapphire tri x with hynix memory that black screens and I do believe its related to voltage fluctuation on power state. I can reproduce my black screen every time my PC goes to sleep/hybrid sleep. I black screen when trying to wake the PC, halting on black screen until I reboot. I have also seen it consistently when leaving the PC idle for 10-20 minutes.

I've tried running +50% power, increase voltage up to +150 it doesn't make a difference. The only thing I haven't tried is 'force constant voltage' so the voltages don't 'droop' when going from 2d-3d etc. If that works it has to be voltage regulator related/bios. The only other times I had black screen was when pushing the memory to 1600 on full load. It would black screen valley bench almost every time. I dropped it back a bit and it was fine, but still black screen on resume from sleep or prolong idle.

I have a 620w corsair PSU. Had a gtx 570 a few days ago with 0 issues. Was almost going to buy a new psu thinking it was that but meh I'm not convinced, if that was the case you would think I could reproduce it on 100% load. I can definitely prove the card throttles when overclocking at a certain point if I don't increase the power limit. I need about a 20% power limit increase running 1150/1580 (or thereabouts) or my scores start to plummet.

Pretty disappointed coming back to AMD to be greeted with such an issue.

I did experience another strange bug.. Was benching most of the day while testing overclocks. At one stage my performance completely dropped off, lost 10fps in valley and I tried everything to fix it. It was as if it was throttling my card due to lack of power. I tried driver uninstall and clean, reseat card, beta drivers, everything. Eventually after multiple reboots it corrected itself, but not before my screen was filled with colored lines and blurred picture which I thought was a fried card. Obviously the card was not receiving the correct power/voltage or something went retarded in the cards bios I don't know. I rebooted once more and the problem was gone. My fps was back and no crazy lines/flickering screen but still black screening on sleep or long idle periods. Looks like there's no definite fix from the many threads.

I'll be testing a few things over the next week before I ditch the card.. I'd like to try the following:

-disable bios c states
-disable on board graphics in bios
-return bios to default
-disable hardware fast boot
-turn on 'force constant voltage' in trixx and test sleep/resume/idle
-try flashing a newer bios if I can find one
-throw card in bin and go back to nvidia (best option so far)

i would not sell a card that is confirmed having BS unless you specify it.2cents.gif anyway, try using hibernate instead and set Power options in Windows to High Performance not letting the computer to sleep (advance settings). use 13.12 for oc'ing but the 620 may be at the edge if you do.

look like some faulty memory chips escaped. My ASUS R9 290 with Hynix occasionally crashes on full load.

Have tried latest 14.4.. Still black screen on idle/sleep frown.gif thought it was fixed after trying 14.3 but appears not.

RMA'd my Sapphire 290X with black screens. Received a new card has Hynix memory. No black screens or crashes yet.

I have 290x lightning with Samsung memory -- annoying black screen!!!
post #786 of 1600
I believe I've fixed this. Latest 14.4 rc drivers and a few bios tweaks including disabling c6 and c7 states in my bios which was affecting both idle and sleep states, as well as turning off integrated igpu. Also turned off sleep but it was doing it before on idle as well... Apparently HX620 is no good for haswell in regard to these sleep states

14.4 RC gives me very low OC. I'd be lucky to reach 1130 without artifacts, regardless which BIOS I use, how i clean-up everything before every re-installation of driver, and whatever voltage I apply. 13.12 gives me 1210Mhz stable...that's almost 100Mhz difference!

Interesting.. I haven't noticed a change in OC.. I can't even hit 1200 with +200mv.. Max I can hit is about 1170. I get black screens running 1600 mem on valley bench as well... For the time being +130mv seems bench stable in all my tests while keeping vrms around 80deg

yeah, apparently i thought the limit was 1190...then i realized i haven't pushed it further so i broke past 1200 Mhz. Got it stable at 1210 ...1215 and beyond gives me artifacts. On memory, i wasn't so lucky though, only tops out at 1500. I can push it to 1580 but have to clock down gpu a bit. Doesn't worth it, in fact i don't see any difference between 1450 and 1580 biggrin.gif

ummm so I just replaced my PSU with a Seasonic 760w Platinum and now im black screening almost straight away when I boot to windows...
Pulled the card out and tryed internal graphics, no crashes or freezes... So either faulty PSU (doubt it), or the new psu is now causing the 290 to black screen. ***
