Well, time to make it official. Got my 24/7 stable OC's done so.
My second, newer, Tri-X 290X gets to stay. The other one.. PSU won't do CF, I don't need CF, so it can go again tongue.gif



GPU-Z Validation

So, she's running 1200/1500Mhz on +150mV core. This translates roughly to a load voltage of 1.266-1.275v.

Custom fan profile, 40% idle fanspeed (that's my casefans sound level, so 40% for me is unhearable over my casefans). Temp above 50c = 65% fanspeed. Temp above 80c = 100% fanspeed.

It never even gets near the 80c however. Max temps I logged on BF4 for 2 hours straight where 72c core, 79c VRM1 and 52c VRM2 on 65% fanspeed. I did re-paste and remount the card with PK1 on the core though. Sapphire doesn't use those annoying MSI like warranty stickers on the screws so.. Makes repasting a lot easier and doesn't ruin your warranty.

My first cards VRAM did clock better.. That does 1625Mhz easily. This card won't crash till I go past 1800Mhz but it starts to show random checkerboard artifacts above ~1560Mhz so i'll just keep it at 1500Mhz to be sure.

Hi, I have an Asus R9 290 DC2OC video card, and I would like to put one of the custom ri 290 bioses on my card. FYI, this card, according to the hawaii info, is locked. If I flash a PT1 Bios, would it work?
post #2924 of 4143
Anyone tried bios like this? http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/152285/asus-r9290x-4096-131206-1.html

I wonder if elpida can boot with 1350mhz as stock... asus has elpida on many 290x, maybe this bios is using higher vram voltage?

So I'm thinking about getting that sapphire r9 290 trix card, looks like you were able to unlock yours? How long have you had it for?

I've a XFX R9 290 Black Edition. It's a factory "overclocked" edition, and I was wondering if I can unlock it, even though hawaii info says this:

post #2927 of 4143
I need some help guys. First of all, excuse me for my bad english.

Recently, I have flashed my r9 290 to the PT1 bios and all was working fine. Noticed that the Core clock is 1000mhz and memory clocks at 1250mhz. VDDC went up to 1.266v from 1.031v which is my stock. After playing it for few weeks then i decided to switch to the stock rom. After flashing to stock, i just realised that my vddc still remains on 1.266v. Clocks are back to normal. But it just stays at 1040mhz/1350mhz (no decreasing). My idle temps is 56 which is quite high. Im using atiflash 417 and i did uninstall msi afterburner before flashing in DOS. Tried to clean uninstall the driver and reinstall it again, resitting the gpu and lastly i reinstall the os but still no luck. If someone could help me fix the problem, i appreciate it a lot.

That's how the PT1 bios works.
