All kidding aside, when using all 8 threads it's a more than capable CPU. If it had a more modern feature set it would be holding up quite well, really, especially for the price.

Other than that... I tried reading a bit into BIOS modding for these cards and god damn is it too much to read into. I don't know, I hoped that there would be something like "here is the modded BIOS for your MSI 390x with tighter timings that allows higher voltage, flash it and you're ready to go", but it's never that simple, is it?

There's PT1 and PT2 PT3, but I'm not sure if they have memory mods or not.....I think they're just voltage. Would have to ask someone that knows more than I. I know I had one made for me with better voltage and tighter timings...still working on it, to reduce vdroop, but, it's gotten SO much better.
Both PT1 & PT3 are voltage unlocked. Meaning no limit in the BIOS. PT1 have vdroop while PT3 doesn't.

Picked up a 480 rad to add to the loop today. Can't wait to get this thing built. Just need to find the time. rolleyes.gif

I can throw you my numbers and try to catch them with i3s.

I kinda wish I could afford a Skylake i3 for my second build but have to stick with the LGA1155 mobo I have in shelf frown.gif

I finally have GPUz working properly and displaying vrm temps as I was told they are the overclock ceiling for these cards ( msi 390 on stock air cooler), My overclock is 1200 core , 1700 mem at +100mV and +50% , it runs supper clean through 3d mark and gaming and temps on core max at 60 and vrms max at 52 and 55C .This seems pretty low and would indicate a bunch of headroom left for overclocking so whats next , aux voltage bump and push the memory , how hot are we comfortable going ?

I call hax vrm temps, too good to be true! :l

BIOS mod for more voltage on core, aux voltage is mostly useless and memory overclocking gives no real benefit.

If I dump +100mv into my Powercolor PCS+ 390 I black screen instantly. I have to hard shut down. I am afraid to BIOS mod that high...

Anyone can upload the ASUS R9 390 DC2 BIOS?

Thanks!
post #6568 of 11898
So, I decided to go play some BF4 (old loves die hard) and, being the worst game I have when black screens are a problem, I gave my higher overclocks a shot. So I tried to stick to 1170/1700MHz. I started off with +80/+25mV. I got some flickering after 5 minutes, so I increased aux voltage to +50mV and got a black screen within another 5 minutes. I then proceeded to try +90/+50mV and same thing happened. Max temps through all of this were 75C on the core and 73C on the VRM. Then I tried +80mV core and no additional aux voltage and it seems to work. I played through a whole round of BF4, so like 15 minutes with no problems that I noticed (Although with BF4 needing my undivided attention to do well, it's quite possible that I miss some artifacts when they appear). Strange thing was that my temps were 77C max on the core and 75C max on the VRM, so I went to check my actual voltage and I think that it stays high more consistently. It still bounces around between 1.23V and 1.26V (plus change), but it rarely dipped to 1.23V and usually stayed in the 1.25V range with many spikes to 1.26V, where before it would mostly chill around 1.23-1.24V and spike to 1.25-1.26V.

So, nothing conclusive here, but I may be onto something.

Same results as the rest of us, you are getting crashes/artifacts because of temps, not because of lack of voltage. The lower your temps, the lower you can get your voltage. And higher temps = more voltage = more temps, a never ending cycle really.

Without the additional AUX voltage I got higher actual core voltage and higher temps both on the core and on the VRM, so it wasn't temps. It wasn't much higher, just 2C, but it was higher nontheless. That's what's strange.
