Get latest bios from Gigabyte's website and unlock it using atomtool script from CUINFO thread. That worked fine for my GV-R929OC-GD4, using F5 bios.
Also, you can remove sticker to get 100% unlocked card biggrin.gif

What about CUINFO output? If it says that CUs should be unlockable, then you can unlock them using atomtool.

You probably could just get away with a default 290x bios.

Thats the CUINFO Output

Adapters detected: 1
Card #1 PCI ID: 1002:67B0 - 174B:E289
DevID [67B0] Rev [00] (0), memory config: 0x500003AA Elpida
Hawaii-class chip with 11 compute units per Shader Engine
SE1 hw/sw: F8000005 / 00000000 [...........]
SE2 hw/sw: F8000005 / 00000000 [...........]
SE3 hw/sw: F8000005 / 00000000 [...........]
SE4 hw/sw: F8000005 / 00000000 [...........]
44 of 44 CUs are active. HW locks: 0 (R/O) / SW locks: 0 (R/W).
All CUs in this chip are already active.

Wanted to flash a good 390x bios for the 290x with 8gb because it should be the same card =)

No, 290x has different memory timings and lower gpu voltage, that cause artifacts and blackscreens.

Sry, I forgot that there is no 8gb 290 rolleyes.gif I thought that you wanted to unlock it to 290x rolleyes.gif
You can try to flash it to 390x, but it wont make big improvement, the card will be still detected as 290x.

Try this:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1564219/r9-390x-bios-for-r9-290-290x-now-with-stock-and-modded-voltage-tables


Is there a list of R9 290 cards based on reference PCB?
Having problems here and im about to flash the modded 390 bios on it. I just need some options.

Ive read that Sapphire Tri-X is reference, despite the aftermarket cooler... can anyone confirm this pelase.

Hi everyone!

I just got second Sappfire 290 Tri-X, was looking how to install it and found out about unlocking.

I found guide controversial (maybe my enlish is too bad), so I decided to check in with my results.

So there is my report for two cards:

Compatible adapters detected: 2
Adapter #1 PCI ID: 1002:67B1 - 174B:E285
Memory config: 0x500046A9 Hynix
RA1: F8800005 RA2: 00000000
RB1: F8010005 RB2: 00000000
RC1: F8010005 RC2: 00000000
RD1: F8010005 RD2: 00000000
Adapter #2 PCI ID: 1002:67B1 - 174B:E285
Memory config: 0x500036A9 Hynix
RA1: F8010005 RA2: 00000000
RB1: F8010005 RB2: 00000000
RC1: F8010005 RC2: 00000000
RD1: F8010005 RD2: 00000000

Is there something to unlock?

Really? People are still asking this?

Figure it out for yourself dude.

Ugh. Sick of what the tech scene has become..."Can you do this for me", "Can you figure this out for me".... READ DUDE.

READ. Its that simple, it really is.
