Update to newest BIOS and do a full CMOS reset.Reinstall drivers.

yeah i found out, chose the wrong on the website, doing an update now

Updated bios to 2001, swapped my memory from 1886 to 1333, see if that makes any difference, but it is my understanding although i put 1886 memory on the board, the board will only let it run at 1333 speed anyway, so in theory that should not make any difference. will do some testing to see if there is any difference.

still didn't work, so still can be the GPU or MOBO.

This are the voltages from HWmonitor @ idle, a bit low, but in bios they look fine....

Is there an option in Bios to switch PCI mode (legacy/efi/uefi? Try toggling that to a different mode if there is.

All signs point towards the GPU at this point.
Do you have access to another computer to test it in?

I had nearly the same thing happen when I got a new GPU. Does your GPU have a reg BIOS as well as UEFI? Also, does it have a switch for LN2?

If youre running a 750w psu, with the r9 290, and an FX chip, Im wondering if you are right around your power limits. Do you hear a little DC chirp at all before the cash?

Also, did you completely remove the old Video card drivers? It sounds like you were able to swap the old card in and have no problems. But Im hoping that you removed all of the old gpu drivers and installed the new ones before testing the new gpu...and then removed those and reinstalled the old ones before swapping the old card in.

He has plenty of overhead with a 750w PSU.

Yeah got 1, has the same MOBO in it with a different CPU and RAM. Have to be swapping PSU as well if i want to test that. Was thinking about a new MOBO anyway because of the heavy overclocking and my MOBO is the bottleneck in my overclock and 1886 RAM, CPU seems fine for gaming.

Gonna get a Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 later today, gonna test that, if i still have problems then i will get my GPU tested at the store.

If the problem wasnt present with the hd 6670 the peoblem is the asus r9 290

So a little update. Bought and installed my new mobo, Sabertooth 990FX R2.0. start up no problem, drivers and programs the same. gaming..... well every game i try stutters a lot from the start, GPU temps are around 40 degrees C, newest AMD / ATI drivers installed, but so far no crashes (well i lied, when i applied my old overclock settings i get BSOD). still have to do a lot of stress testing before i make up my mind and decide to RMA my GPU.

But any advice on the stuttering? like i said, no high temps, games are, TF2, HL2 LC, Binary Domain (just some simple downloads to begin with), TF2 / HL2 about 200 / 140 FPS, but micostutters back to 30 / 25 FPS, BD around 60, becomes unplayable, 18 / 15 FPS when moving around, same goes for every game, standing still is okish, moving around and it is starting to stutter alot.

(oh btw, clean install, newest drivers for every component)

Edit: my Asus WLAN PCI card is also in a PCI X16 slot due to the fact the R9 290 covers the PCI x1 slot, could this have any interference?
