Modded R9 390X BIOS for R9 290/290X (Updated 02/16/2016) - Page 103

post #1021 of 1872
I've got a reference Sapphire r9 290 with Elpida memory that I've unlocked with a 290x bios on the secondary position on the bios switch. There's a lot of posts to comb through, though I haven't seen any with the same card as me, does anyone have a suggestion on which 390x bios to try out that should work with my card?

Do I have any chances to flash successfully a R9 390 / 390x bios, also without having any artifacts of sort? Anyone got the exact same card?

Try the _Stock_.rom and see if that works for you since it has the same voltages as a stock 290.

Another thing could be that your card has a higher DPM7 VID than stock, you can figure that out using the Stilts evvd decoder from the Hawaii Bios Editing thread.
You'd have to find it in your stock rom and enter the value manually into the DPM7 slot for the correct 6 locations in PowerPlay and Limit Tables.

The info involved in this modding process has matured very well since the proponents of this BIOS started this thread.

Thank you guys. By using your bios I successfully unlocked my Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC.


290_HYNIX_MOD_V1.7 and 290_NOMOD_MOD_V1.7 unlocked it.

Unfortunately the 290X_ Bios gives me a black screen during boot. Can you tell me why? Only the 290_ ones work.

Did you make sure all the drivers were uninstalled prior to flashing the card?

I just tested it again with uninstalled drivers (DDU). My system doesn't boot with the 290X_ Version. I just hear my mainboard speaker beeping.

Use the 290_ ones then. Both 290_ & 290X_ are based on 390X BIOS anyway, just different device ID (67b0 or 67b1). Your motherboard probably fussy about mismatched device ID which is why you get black screen with 290X_ BIOS. To fixed this, since your card is originally a 290, you will need to use BIOS with device ID 67b1 which the 290_ BIOS already have.

No-no, sorry I meant the bios mod; 290_ELPIDA_STOCK_V1.7 reduced my temp by 10ºC at idle,
Very very happy as the card in lane one gets little air flow.

Idle: 35ºC
Elite: MSAA4 x 1.0 58ºC 1080P

Noticed in Elite that the mod is a bit off I think, hi-lighted areas edges are a bit too white/bright.
Eg: Ship frame when in direct star light

Also, overlay screen are not as smooth when they are with texture like planet rings behind the.
Kinda nit picking, but my rig over all is running cooler.
