Hawaii Bios Editing ( 290 / 290X / 295X2 / 390 / 390X ) - Page 311

I looked through a few BIOS files and couldn't find the 1125 MHz strap anywhere...

And, you can't do 1125 either. The memory will start to corrupt things and throw a ton of errors. I have done that. Even my best card can't.

To get to my benching bios tweaks, I have to copy some hex bits from 1000 strap into 1250 timings.

I am tweaking the timings myself, so if you know Elpida timings for 1125 MHz, please share them. smile.gif

Like I said, it woild crap out even without 3D load in Windows
post #3103 of 3743
I don't really care, if the timings for 1125 MHz are usable or not. I just need them for comparison purposes.
post #3104 of 3743
Go search for one then. thumb.gif
post #3105 of 3743
That's what I am doing.

If you don't want to help, why answer at all?
All the BIOS files I searched for the 1125 MHz strap with hex editor didn't have it inside.

You wrote, you tried the 1125 MHz strap, but you wont share it?
Thanks a lot... thumb.gif
post #3106 of 3743
Then what? Encounter corruption and blame people?

If you can't use it, why would you even bother?

I'm not like saying things I have not encountered. There's nothing in there. 1250 is the best that you can do with Elpida BABG. Even that will prove problematic to some people.

If you are very keen on things, you can make one yourself.
post #3107 of 3743
OK, so you are a dead loss. Even though I explained, why I want the timings, you are not able to understand.
This thread is about BIOS modding and you babble about corruption? I know what I am doing, it's not my first BIOS mod.

Either you know something about BIOS modding and overclocking but don't want to share it or (more likely) you just pretend to know something.
Both alternatives cast a poor light on you.

Don't bother to answer. Welcome, first person on my ignore list.

@Peppeman

On stock ROM/settings, what VID per DPM is shown in AiDA64 registers dump? The voltage boxes you circled in post 3088 will most probably need manually setting IMO.

I read in a later post you had an error message when flashing card, are you flashing in DOS?

@PunkX 1

Run AtomBiosReader in OP, this will get you offset location of VRAM_Info table within ROM. Go to that section, then find the straps, in OP heading Memory Timings Modding > Memory Controller Straps/Frequency Range even has the hex values shown that you need to search.

@Wrecker66

The only reason I would flash a 390 to X is if it is unlockable, have you tested your card using unlock tool?

390/X MC mod should give your 295X2 a very slight boost, you may or may not notice it in games FRAPS testing, usually 3DM FS was the most sensitive for me to show RAM clock/timings mods effect.

I'm assuming you have tested what OC you get on each card using stock ROM? as I would do this prior to bios mod.

no i haven't tested the 390 to see if it is ulockable. the thing is that i didn't know where to start as this is my first try with flashing bios.

also i didn't test what oc can i get. i always went with stock settings. i will test the cards like you adviced me! thank you thumb.gif



the thing is that i had before a rig with 295x2 and 290x all watercooled and wanted to start overclocking the cards but my proccesor died (not my fault biggrin.gif)

in the meantime i got another 295x2 with stock aio and new 390 strix - and i'm not going to do full loop yet in a while and wanted to get the best result possible from this two cards working together

I have never done CF even though had cards at times to do it. From reading others posts it's best to aim to get common clocks running on all cards, I would go this route if in your shoes.

Regarding unlock, view OP here, run CUInfo smile.gif .
