This is the result of my 2nd firestrike run with my 390 crossfired with my 290X. I probably need to fine tune everything though, I have both cards running at different clock speeds (the stable non voltage added OC I found for either 390 core 1117 mem 1675 290X core 1112 mem 1420) Temps are pretty up there for the main card (390) as well, although not so bad with the side panel removed so I definitely need to mod my case for a side intake fan. Or figure out a water cooling solution but I have to really slow down on spending at this point & I doubt my case would fit any anyways. typer.gif

Edit: Well apparently my 390 is running at core 1112 mem 1500 according to Firestrike, not sure what that's about since in CCC I have them both set to the above stated speeds. I do remember hearing something about the stronger card downclocking to match the weaker one in crossfire but that don't make sense in my situation. The 390 stock is core 1015 mem 1500 & the 290X stock is core 1030 mem 1250, hmm... Oh well just happy to have it all set up & working at this point! thumb.gif

I've run all types of Hawaii + Grenada crossfire setups now and the card with the higher base clock NEVER lowers itself down, If anything the card with the lower base clock has overclocked itself to match the higher clocked one.

Run down of what Crossfire setups I've done so far:

R9 290 + R9 290
R9 290x + R9 290
R9 290 + R9 295x2
R9 290 + R9 290 + R9 295x2
R9 290x + R9 295x2
R9 290x + R9 290 + R9 295x2
R9 390 + R9 295x2
R9 390 + R9 390x
R9 390x + R9 295x2
R9 390x + R9 290x


When i say it like that it seems like alot rolleyes.gif

I am buying a sapphire R9 390 this week for 3D rendering in Blender.

Can anyone tell me where can I get a cooler block for it?

I read an update from the first page of this thread that alpha cool has now semi blocks for sapphire and MSI.

But I am not getting the link for them

COFIRMED (UPDATED 7/15/15)


The only full cover EK blocks that are cross compatible between 290 and 390 series cards, are those manufactured for Asus DCU, XFX DD, and PowerColor PCS+ cards.

However, Alphacool has now began producing a semi-cover blocks for the Sapphire and MSI cards, which uses a water block, mated to a large passivbe heatsink to cool the VRM's. Good news for owners of those cards, as those cards are both quite popular!

I checked in the compatibility list

http://www.alphacool.com/download/compatibility%20list%20ATI.pdf

This might work, can anyone confirm it:

Alphacool NexXxoS GPX - ATI R9 390 M01 - mit Backplate - Schwarz

Sapphire Radeon R9 390 Nitro, 8GB GDDR5, DVI, HDMI, 3x DisplayPort, lite retail (11244-00-20G)

Add me to the club baby. Brand new just bought Sapphire 390X Nitro, first time AMD user. So far I love the card only that it stutters when I play games for a good 1 min and then is smoothers out. Is that normal? Using the latest Beta Drivers.

The latest beta drivers caused stutter on some games for some people. Expecting/hoping this is fixed on the next non-beta driver.

Hi..
I purchased a XFX R9 390 in July, and couldn't be more happy with my choice.
For reference, I had a Crossfire system with a XFX 7970 + Sapphire 7950 with my Eyefinity setup. But, I needed to be "a bit" update in terms of hardware. So, I was between an used R9 290/x or a brand new R9 390..
I've been reading this thread since the begining (thanx, Agent Smith thumb.gif ), but I couldn't never post before because I have problems with my internet conection, so I can't upload photos and stuffs....yet...biggrin.gif
But, I couldn't resist the temptation to finally write, at least one post.
My XFX R9 390 is a beast. I can OC it at 1100/1600 with only sliding the Power line on Afterburner. Just that. Pretty amazing.
But when I try to reach 1200, total failure. I even installed Trixx to add more voltage, but it didn't.
Of course, I haven't been dedicated in full to tune the card, sliders and values, but so far is a great card. I managed to have it at 1150/1650 at stock voltage (just de Power slider at max), but I think I could reach more.
About temps, well, after having a XFX 6870 that was as hot as the sun (+100 °C when playing, but without any failure) and a 7970 that wasn't as much as I espected, I hesitated a bit on getting this R9 390.. After reading several posts on this thread, went for it... And could never be more happy... biggrin.gif
This card is as cooler as my old Sapphire 7950 (being Sapphire one of the best brands in VGAs cooling solutions). It's amazing.
At full OC and a custom fan curve, I only got +70 °C core and +80 °C VRM... Even when tried to reach 1200 on the core (the few times I did it), core went only at +82°C and VRMs at +89°C...
It's reeeeeeaaally cooler..
I will continue to be updated on this thread, and at the moment I'm back online, I'll upload test results..

Best regards.. tongue.gif

Firstly a ROM can have a GPU core voltage offset within ROM. If in MSI AB you see a preset GPU core voltage offset your ROM has it. For example the Sapphire 390X Nitro ROM has it.

Now I would think an owner would report their using stock voltages.

I have also noted in Sapphire 390X Nitro ROM VDDCI (Aux voltage in MSI AB) is 1.05V vs 1.00v in other 390/X ROMs. Again an owner would think or report as stock voltage / not having touched it.

Next we must talk about ASIC profiling (Leakage ID (ASIC Quality)).
SO say an owner has x ASIC Quality they will have x VID for GPU, another owner has y ASIC Quality they will have y VID for GPU.

SO when both these owners state I use +25mv for x OC of GPU/RAM they will have differing VID / VDDC.

Next we must talk about EVV (Electronic Variable Voltage) in every stock ROM only the lowest state of GPU voltage is the same ie DPM 0. Now why EVV is used for DPM 1 - 7 is so with all this profiling going on each ROM does not have to be tailored to a exact GPUs properties.

Now one thing that also happens under EVV is the default GPU clock affects VID.

For example when I flashed my card with a default GPU clock of 1100MHz I get a differing VID to 1000MHz. Everything in my testing was the same and the same ROM was used but edited GPU clock.

SO as default GPU clock in a ROM goes higher set VID will be lower.

SO an owner of a 390X with say 1050MHz as default GPU clock will have higher VID thus should reach a higher OC without touching voltages than an owner with 1100MHz.

Well... Can anyone confirm that the Sapphire cards have a 1.05V VDDCI at stock (Basically a +50mV AUX)? If so, it would explain why Sapphire's cards' memories overclock better on average. It would also mean that running +50mV AUX would be rather "safe", so to speak.

It just seems too simple to be true... tongue.gif
