The R9 290 -> 290X Unlock Thread - Page 15

post #141 of 4130
Aaah great. So, if the Accelero Hybrid (maybe with some modded VRM heatsinks. .smile.gif) does a good job at cooling it I might be able to push it way past 1200Mhz. If I decide to keep it and it unlocks tongue.gif

The only thing to feel sorry here is people even returning cards for a chance to get a "free" working 290x ..... lol. After all this is a gamble, nothing guaranteed

Maybe I should of said that I feel sorry for the people who have the Sapphire, Gigabyte, and MSI cards hoping to unlock it. So far, none of those cards have been able to be flashed to a 290x. But who knows. Maybe those vendors will notice this thread and swap 290x chips on their 290 boards in order to remain competitive tongue.gif
