So I've unlocked the second card, what happens one one trys to unlock a locked card? It bricks? I'm pretty sure I'm going to return the non un locking (even though they're EXTREMELY hard to get in canada.)

it doesnt brick it, it just changes the core clock not the shaders

So I bought a XFX 290 hoping that it may unlock and it seems it didn't unfortunately.. Considering selling it off and trying again but the costs involved in that are far too great I think.

But if I put any 290x BIOS on it it just refuses to boot at all, soft bricked totally. Just a plain black screen the entire time..
Has anyone had any luck on getting around that?

Also what are some good waterblocks for these? I have the full reference one of course, waterblocks or even an air cooler would be okay I guess.

EDIT: To add it has a 81005 or whatever which according to this thread means it wont unlock.
Another thing to add is that I have elpida memory, which is rated at 1500MHz, but it only does 1250 as far as I know.. Not sure as I have an old afterburner and no internet at the moment.. I'm currently at school using their internet tongue.gif

I didn't have much luck using afterburner, I use trixx and I can do 1150/1500 on both my unlocked 290's with elpida memory.

After shifting from Afterburner to Trixx I got 1250 on CPU & 1500 on Memory.
The temps are too hight though, but it was possible on stock cooling.

With that, I just wanted to support the shift to Trixx in stead of using Afterburner smile.gif

So I have 2 R9 290's currently and a third being delivered today

1: Sapphire BF4 21227-00-50G - Locked with Hynix

2: XFX Black Edition R9 290 R9290AENBC - Locked with Elpida

I have the second XFX Black being delivered today, im not holding my breath on it being unlockable but hopefully It has Hynix, as the performance on the Elpida XFX is about 5-6% worse than the Hynix Sapphire I have

I also had a couple XFX 290x R9290XENFC cards that I sent back to Amazon because I couldnt justify the cost vs the regular 290, but mining on it I was able to hash about 980kh/s so I assume they were Hynix memory.

What are your temperatures on the memory and Vram? Mine gets too hot when I get around the 1500Mhz smile.gif
