Help allow a more stable core overclock? if so, what's the max safe I should raise it too?

Yes it was on . Max Tess Detail 10, Max Tessellation Factor 24. Thanks :)
jdorje, can you tell me which of your BIOS's has the MOST voltage modification on it? I flashed your current.rom, and I was able to get 1160mhz stable up from 1150mhz. I do want to say Flashing this was extremely scary.. I found it hard to breath when I rebooted my PC, and even know my heart is still beating fast. But if you could tell me which bios I should use to get 1200mhz, that would be amazing!
First of all, flashing shouldn't be scary. You should go into it expecting to brick your card - memory timings are maybe the easiest way to do this - and know how to unbrick it by flashing a working bios back. The only problem there is that you won't be able to use your GPU to do it. I have a secondary monitor running on my igpu, and when I flash I always set that to be the initial output in my mobo UEFI so that I'm using it for the dos boot. If you have a dual-bios gpu that helps too but you have to know how to use it. It's almost certainly even possible to do it without a display if you memorize the sequence of key presses. Just think about this in advance since you don't want to be stuck with a nonworking GPU and no way to get a display.
All of the original bios's I had were on either adaptive or 1225 mV for core voltage. But I uploaded one now max_oc with 1350 mV core, equivalent to +125 mV for me. This is the one I used (with small offset, I forget what) to get my 11.8k firestrike score.
None of the changes should have allowed you to get higher clocks at the same voltage. However if your stock voltage was lower than 1225 then using the 1225 one would be raising the voltage obviously. Some cards have a hidden offset that's applied on top of the voltage. Watch what your actual voltage is in hwinfo (with vdroop you'll get greatly diminishing returns in actual voltage compared to VID). I don't really know the safe voltage limit but my card black screens before 1400 mV VID anyway.
I managed to OC my cpu to 4.3 for starters. And upped my gpu to 1195/1750 . thanks pplz.
Bro I have the MSI R9 390. and if you teach me how to get to my bios , I won't mind sending it to you :)
