The R9 290 -> 290X Unlock Thread - Page 403

post #4021 of 4143
So, for a Sapphire Tri-X R9 290, from 950 Core and 1250 Memory, is it good for +20% PL, 1050Core and 1375Memory clocks without any voltage change? Gotta check what was the ASIC quality, but above 11% core OC, i start getting artifacts (flickering shadows and stuff), same with memory above 1400. Also driver crashes above 13% core OC and above 1400 memory.

Racing games only... which are really easy to run. Just crossing my fingers that the card can last me... Oh Just FYI, saw another few deals around here... Brand new Sapphire R9-290X's reference design, PHP11K...

Oh well. Make sure you have enough contact and Heatsink space on the VRMs. thumb.gif

It's always good to max the Power Limit regardless of OC Levels. Even at stock speeds, settingPower Limit to +50% can gain you a few FPS. thumb.gif

The old CCC with 20% max limit was more informative. Not to mention the actual Mhz increase on Core/Memory, not now % on core.
Would +50% power limit really be OK? Even at stock i have left it at +20%. I dont think i can trip the OCP on my VS650, but still...

It's there to allow the card to pull when it need to. Not Push what it can't. thumb.gif

You don't need to mod your bios to stop that. Just use pre-Crimson Drivers.

pre crimson doesn't stop the core to fluctuates:D

Same here on my Sapphire Tri-x 290, no issues when OC'ed or stock, clocks are staying where they must be while playing. Its another issue that after driver crash, the memory reported speeds wont go down smile.gif

Lol. why would it crash? too much oc? haven't had any driver crash. zero but then i do not oc my gpus for gaming. only benching.

i see you got your 290 paired with a 960T. when i got my second 290 (used) i tested it on air first on my amd rig. i had to unlock the cpu to keep up . . .

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/4479191?

it struggled but it played.

edit: wait, you are using CCC to oc? NO. Use Trixx. You got a Sapphire. If using Crimson, OC with Trixx or AB and always max PL, like mus said. your 650 is fine. You need to go back to Crimson and reset OC if you accepted Overdrive. Trixx OC settings should stay. Test with a synthetic bench.

What you need to oc anyway is your cpu not your gpu.2cents.gif
