I'm on Catalyst 13.12 now and OC is good, reaches 1215Mhz before artifacts show up (Firestrike). It's not crashing though, just some artifacts which you won't even notice unless you look at Firestrike 100% of the time.

Nope. The only noise is coil whine (which by the way, is another annoying thing). On my 780 Ti SC, it never happened -- not one of these issues.

can you increase the voltage on your PCIe bus in your bios?

a while back there was an issue with certain motherboards not getting enough strap voltage on the PCIe buss when returning from low powerstates causing black screens.

I just ate dinner and left the computer idle. When came back to my desk, i thought it was just the monitor in sleep mode (as I always set). Moved the mouse, monitor LED came back to ACTIVE state...BUT nothing is on my screen, just plain black and had to reboot to fix it.

That was on catalyst 13.12. Catalyst 14.x, crashes instantaneously when OC'd to at least 1150 MHz. (without me doing anything yet). Set 1130 MHz - ish, it would still work until GPU load reaches 100% and temp above 50C. Weird huh? thumb.gif

huh, it only happens when oc'ed.

thought that would be a thing of the past but i can check it out tonight. Then again, it would really be a pain to test as it doesn't happen every time.

well, i haven't encountered it with stock clocks yet (since I'm always on OC mode), but i gues that's not to say whether it may happen with stock or not. I don't have the patience - and time - to test all scenarios. Only have 2-3hrs per day to spend on my pc.

For me, if it happens more than once, then it's a problem. MSI immediately says it's bad GPU upon hearing the black screen issue.

Well, I just resolved my BS problem by just using the RadeonPro which can force my R9 290 to operate at the highest clock.
Never BSed for months. So no underclocking, no voltage changing, no PSU blaming, no bios messing.....
BTW, the new Catalyst 14.4 still did not fix my BS issue.
Is there any chance the PowerPlay is the one to blame for?

PowerColor refused to RMA because I wasn't the original owner even though I had the proof of purchase and the card was only a couple months old. I returned it to the guy I bought it from and he will RMA it and I decided not to trust PowerColor for any future purchases.

Im thinking some blackscreen could be solved by avoiding clock change. Will be nice if afterburner let force clocks. Not sure if there is already a setting for that.

I will test with radeonpro in the meantime...

there's a huge chance that i'm going to blame AMD for lack of thorough testing ;-)
