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 . . .

it struggled but it played.
Playing Paragon (Alpha), and the game takes 0 memory OC, otherwise crash in menu, 0 core OC otherwise crash in match biggrin.gif But no issues playing Crysis 3 on max.

LOL. C3 uses a lot of cores. your cpu must be maxing out for sure. but it's nice to max C3, especially using 1080. so overly optimized and uses less vram. wish all games are like so.

From what i was able to see, Crysis 3 runs only 4 CPU cores, it is not much of a bottleneck though. Most of the time i am GPU bound, its Crysis 3 afterall biggrin.gif
Anyway, from my observations, some games, probably due to the engine, handle the GPU OC differently. Crysis 3 nets some FPS gains, while... Paragon refuses any.

Single player - yes. Here was C3 MP with just a 7950 . . .




Afterburner shows similar results. If you upgrade the cpu for anything below Skylake - get an i7.

xSpiritZ / Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC / Hynix H5GC4H24AJR / Unlocked

I successfully unlocked my R9 290 Tri-X OC by using a modded R9 390X Bios. The SapphireTri-X.zip BIOS shows me a black screen during boot, but it unlocks my GPU too.



R9 390X Bios Link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1564219/r9-390x-bios-for-r9-290-290x-now-with-stock-and-modded-voltage-tables

Anyone else got this 3rd phantom display after unlocking their card? Any Idea how to get rid of it? I tried to get rid of it by disabling the adapter but it dd nothing.

I didn't get this on windows 8.1. Is it windows 10 specific?

post #4037 of 4142
I just had a look at my card. Sapphire r9 290

came back with this. Take it that the card is locked ?

I got a XFX R9 290... Tried flashing couple time .. no post..

Which bios should I use?
post #4039 of 4142
How does 85.6% ASIC quality seems for a Sapphire Tri-x 290 (non unlockable)? No voltage change - 10% Core,+125 (1375) Memory.
