Hawaii Bios Editing ( 290 / 290X / 295X2 / 390 / 390X ) - Page 181

That was quick. Thank you.
I'll take it for a spin tomorrow to see how it behaves.

This is what I always use to flash. https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18552408

The BIOS was either Backup by the method shown in that post or it was an update from MSi. I don't exactly remember, its been a while. redface.gif

i think that adding third gpu state broke OpenCL memory overclock biggrin.gif (memory stay on 150mhz for computing)

No worries smile.gif.

Some manufacturers I've noted do only give short ROM. I'll dump a ROM via atiflash to see what it does, as never used it for that purpose. Will update instructions as required in OP.

I'm not playing with any game yet.

I'm guessing the OP wants to keep this thread on topic-- but I'm the noob here, so please correct me if I'm wrong-- so as it doesn't really relate to the BIOS editing, I'm only going to confirm that yes, depending on a variety of factors (including airflow, ambient temps, quiet vs. performance bios switch), that's not terribly surprisingly. You should read some reviews of the card.

The idle sounds on the high end, but it could be down to poor air flow and high ambient temps. R9 290s can run as hot as 95 C under load, and the Windforce will easily hit high 70s to 84, depending on load/bios position, when cooking. Most after market 290s in normal/cool ambient temps and good case flow at absolute load run between high 60s and 85 C.

I'm sure everyone will be happy to discuss all this re BIOS editing, but general questions about a specific model probably belong in a thread specifically on that card, a stand-alone thread, an R9 290 owners thread, or even a cooling thread. There's a lot of possibly discuss and it would really take us far outside the range of what this thread is about.

That said, if you're looking to slightly reduce temps via BIOS editing, this might be the place... but I'd go after the low hanging fruit first (case air flow, ambient temps, etc).

Cheers, and good luck!

Sorry my mistake, I've misread the thread title with the other one doh.gif But thanks for the answer. Sorry once again. I mean it to post my question to [Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club thread sadsmiley.gif

I read the fist post tutorial and everything is pretty clear, thanks for the work smile.gif


One question: Have we identified why the 390x bios is faster than the 290x bios when flashed to a 290x card? Is it only the memory timings?

In other words, adding the 390x timings to a 290x bios will wield the same performance as flashing an entire 390 bios such as the ones available on the 290x mem mod topic?

memory timings and controller timings wink.gif
if you add 390X memory timings to 290X bios it will be same speed

Thank you smile.gif , still hoping to add content / improve it with all of us working on "ROM" smile.gif .

In addition to Oneb1t's info, some are finding the 390 ROM is still yielding extra performance.

For example IIRC @fyzzz card performs best with 390 ROM and @Kizwan did a compare of 390 ROM with some mods vs 290 ROM with same RAM strap timings and 390 Memory Controller timings.

1st and 2nd result in this Link:- http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/7432553/fs/7434854/fs/7435150

I tried a 390X ROM on my Vapor-X 290X with mods to make it more compatible and it just "blackscreen" at windows loading stage sadsmiley.gif . Hoping to now try one on the Tri-X 290 as it has AMD ref PCB (AMD stamp on PCI-E fingers area).

I had a question about your "blackscreen" situation, you stated increased voltage is causing corruption of output signal are you upping GPU/RAM clocks in that test scenario?

I know I haven't increased voltage on the Tri-X 290 yet, well not by much. I just removed the offset in IR3567B which was reducing VDDC & VDDCI by -6.25mV and now 1100/1450 or 1100/1475 or 1110/1460 is not "blackscreening" like on stock ROM.

Here's another screenie of having run 1hr Heavensward benchmark looped.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Marked in red on the i2cdump txt is the various offsets (currently we know about) 00 'd , what values do you have in your i2cdump?
