Today i decided to do some more cooling and a got Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thumb.gif
Looks like this paste works biggrin.gif

Ps: 78°C to 72°C (172.4000℉ to 161.6000℉) and this is from Zelman STG2 rolleyes.gif room temp was 23°C during tests, 25-30 min of Witcher 3 standing still in empty Kaer Morhen frown.gif

yea good paste, i may pick some up to put on my ryzen, for my r9 390 im using gc extreme. In 23°C ambient i barely hit 40°C.

Here ya go. It's a "Test" bios just to see if it helps to start. It's not a high performance bios, it's power limited to rule out thermal issues.

Once you follow my instructions, upload a HWInfo At-Load screenshot to see how the temps are and fan speeds etc. By the way is your 390x a reference model? Thanks

Thank you. I'm interested as to what indicates it might be a software/bios issue? Would I be able to play games using this test bios?

Regardless, given that there is no certainty that its a bios problem, I would prefer to exhaust all other possible options first. This is because if I flash the bios, some people say that this may invalidate the warranty. I also want to do the least risky things first. I also want to learn a bit before flashing the bios as I am a total noob.

The first thing I will do, unless you are fairly certain it is a bios issue, is to replace the EVGA Supernova G2 Gold 850W with:

EVGA 100-W1-0500-K3 - 500W 80 Plus Power Supply (100-W1-0500-K3)

Otherwise you can learn from my bios and the characteristics of the bios I make and maybe fine tune it to more refined performance to better suit your liking. lmk

@componentgirl90 How's it going? everything work or you have not tried it yet?

Hi Chris. Sorry was asleep. I haven't tried it yet ( explain in my other recent post probably above this one).

BTW my card is xfx 390x DD, just a normal card with no mods.

The card has been heavily used. For some months 18 hours a day!. I would say probably 3000 hours of gaming since I bought it about 1.5 years ago.

Additional information: I have an R9 270 as well which has flashing textures and artifacts in games like battlefield 1, rainbow six siege and rust. I'm wondering if its somehow related to the problems the 390x is having because that card is only 2 years old and was used only for 8 months or so until I got the 390x.

Basically the stock bios has issues, it's plain too hot among many other things. So yeah haha.

First thing to cause like every single issue, is the BIOS. I would most certainly flash it, it won't void warranty and it's not risky if you read my instructions. It's a major problem solver, my bios that is. Test out my BIOS and yes you can game it will just be below power limit but will run fine clocks will just be low but running fine cool and smooth.

Then we can slowly speed things up as we monitor and assess the data after the bios flash and ddu/ fresh driver install. thumb.gif

PS - I can dial in your 270 BIOS as well so keep em comin. haha

Ok. I did it! Here is the HWInfo screenshot

im telling you all, @Chris89 is the man with this. I just ran Superpostion with pretty dang good results...max heat was 63C on core with 1333mv core, 888mv for VRAM, and clocks are 1133/1250. Yes, I worried too what 1250mhz would do to it, with timespy, almost nothing. 2 points lower than 1625 ram speed. TWO!!
Unlock your cards potential...send him your bios.

I did! I followed the instructions. For a moment I thought it had crashed because the ATIWinflash wasn't responding but it worked.

Speaking of unlocked bios and benchmarks...
First run of Superposition
1133MHz core 1250Mhz Ram at 1333mv core/888mv ram. Max temp, 63C I accidently closed GPU-z and cant get power consumption. On next run with higher ram speed I will.
