I even tried that bios, but it was a no go. i use the original since the default speed for the LN2 is 1GHZ.

max your PL. don't use Aux. easy on the VDDC.

edit: if all else fails . . . we switch gpus.biggrin.gif

just kidding. rma it.

Cannot RMA something that works as advertised (great at stock clocks). This card beahves exactly like a Msi 290x Gaming that had 82% Asic, extremly low voltage during Firestrike Extreme.

Just did a 20min run of Firestrike extreme (13.12 again) with 1125 at stock (+63mv) without any artifacts, enabled unnoficial overclock enable (never needed to enable it), and disabled UPLS (i know it´s for crossfire but i had to try it), didnt saw arfifacts so fingers crossed..there is hope for this POS i guess... but i must insist this piece of silicon draws so little VDDC, there are times in Firestrike where it falls to 1.09V, but fluctuates mostly between 1.14~1.16.

Will do some more testing, gonna do some heaven and some BF4.

Edit: Also disabled Lightboost Hack, i know that is not because of this, but im "all in" right now.

Not all the parts of the Firestrike benchmark need the GPU to run at full speed.

What about the parts with thw loading screens.

The GPU will clock down dutint those parts and hence the lower voltage.

Also my the 290X L also draws 1.3 V according to GPU-Z with +200mv offset.

Which seems good to me.

It takes me 175 mv to get 1200 stable everywhere
Yoy should be able to do it too.

Don't try to OC your memory right now.
First get your core sorted out.

I bet you have a High ASIC as well.
Im more relieved now, for me stable is stable everywhere i could game everything with much less voltagem but if firestrike extreme is not stable then its no good for me. Im stable at 200mv 1200. It goes to 1.3v but most of the time is a little under that. Temps are great for 200mv 72c after 30min loop.
What would you consider to be a safe voltage for 24/7? Since we are talking about a lighning i think it could be a little higher than referente PCB?

This is so wrong.
There is no such thing as a BIOS just for LN2.

LN2 BIOS just uses all the power phases, hence the PCB is working at its full potential that is it.

Heck I use LN2 BIOS on air all the time.

If there was a thing as a BIOS designed just for LN2, then it would have to feature very High Clocks & Vcore by default.

No Card I am aware of till this date has been sold with such a BIOS..

Actually I have 72.1% ASIC, which is fairly low.
Thw only think lower I have seen with 290Xs is 70%.

Try lowering your voltage a little maybe you can get to 175mv or 150mv maybe.

Safest on AIR I would say is 100mv, with this cooler you can run 200mv with no problems.
But I don't think you'll need that much performance 24/7.

If you want more, just go water & you can do more than 200mv 24/7

No 100mv in general.
