If you don't crossfire then ULPS is unuseful, you can keep it off.

R9 200 cards are very bad overclockers, I have two r9 290x under water and sincerely I can't go over 1150 core and I can't even touch the memory.

Also these cards are very hot, do you have a proper cooling solution? Otherwise I would disencourage you from overclocking.

Put the power limit always to 50 which is the maximum, it's completely safe and will never fry your card.

Dont touch voltage until you have a better cooling.

Msi R9 290 Gaming is an excellent overclocking card. The hynix memory is rated at 1500mhz so there's a good headroom on the memory side.

Here's my OC setting for this card

core clock:1075mhz
memory clock: 1375mhz

10-12% improvement in Unigine Valley.

With that mild overclock you should be ok with touching,voltage or disable ULPS.

Not all R9 290 are bad overclockers and some would say like me they overclock better than some 780Ti cards.
I know because I have these cards and the R9 290 cards overclock better than my 780Ti cards.

The cards are on air.If I put my 780Ti cards at the same voltage on air they would blow up and never run again LOL.
Point is the cards for me are fine and run fine on air and extreme voltage on air ,and are perfectly fine for me.
Core clock:1200mhz
Memory clock: 1600mhz


Gaming BF4 for awhile,check out what the temps were.With very high voltage.Even at these crazy volts temps were more than fine for me JMO
