I have currently modded the 8x 290 ROMs to have:-

- corrected RAM density value
- corrected RAM IC vendor ID & string
- removed the "invisible" +37.5mV VDDC and +31.25mV VDDCI offset present in ROM
- added a "visible" +37.5mV VDDC and +31.25mV VDDCI offset separately

The separated offsets will be editable independently to what a user would want in ROM.

I will hopefully finish the other 290X ROMs today or tomorrow and then perhaps @Insan1tyOne can add the V1.8 ROM pack to OP.

Perhaps this will help your issue.

Much obliged"

and many thanks for the support and improvments that you are adding to our lives daily!

@gupsterg I had been wondering about the RAM compatibility issues for quite some time now... Although I had never found a way to properly solve them. Your list of updates looks absolutely fantastic! The only cards that we would potentially have left to deal with are cards that use Samsung VRAM, the Reference R9 295X2 and then the PowerColor Devil 13 R9 290X (or possibly the updated version which is dual 390's?)

Regardless, we all appreciate your efforts and as soon as your post the V1.8 pack I will update the OP for sure!

Sorry to sound incompetent but hawaii bios editing scares me smile.gif I had no issues with maxwell 2 / Cayman

Could someone please post sapphire tri-x 290 bioses (old model- standard phases stock PCB and sleeve fans)?

I have one which doesn't unlock and has hynix memory. Does 1100/1500 with +50mV. 73% ASIC. 4GB version.

If possible, it'd be great if I could have--

1. The 390 default bios
2. The 290 with 390 timings
3. The 390 with 290 voltages
4. The 390 with 290 timings

Thanks! Also, will I need to re-sign the bioses?
@gupsterg, looking to you for help :") The hidden voltage offsets scream instability, and I am generally taking calls @ home so a crashed computer = problems.

Gupsterg, man sorry i did a mistake when i asked you stilt rom for me (i was pretty sure i had this rom cause my afterburner kept the +50mv on default for no reason), today i tryed to flash my card with the stilt rom +50mv (M50P.bin) and when i install my amd driver i got a blue screen like if i flashed my r9 290 tri x card with r9 290x bios, the stilt rom just don't work on my card, don't know why, i searched the offset voltage on 290_HYNIX_MOD_V1.7.rom but not find (this is strange i'm pretty sure m50p worked yesterday ..)
I'll just keep the insanity 1.7rom for now with -37mv in VDDCI, i'll wait your 1.8 version with so much impatience ! congrats for your work man.

(I noticed something with basic bios Sapphire.R9290.4096.140320.zip 99k .zip file i can reach at 1.35V easy in load, but with all other roam like insanity mod in load i never get more than 1.24V, sometimes i reach 1.3V in very low load at 25% load)

@i2cy

No worries thumb.gif , others did a lot for what is in OP grouphug.gif , so it's time for me to chip in as I was mentioned in OP for other reasons there wink.gif .

@Insan1tyOne

Cheers as always for your kind comments/support smile.gif , yep bios modding is rolling forward well IMO smile.gif . I'll finish V1.8 as highlight for now, I will view the Samsung ROMs as I can make for RAM IC ending in FS found on Sapphire Tri-X 290/X New Edition as well plus could do a HYNIX BFR.

@Samuris

Post in other thread regarding your experience with MLU so others are aware the unmodified MLU is an issue with your card and my modding was OK, cheers.

Most state VDROOP is higher with 390/X ROM, at present I can't adjust that to differing level. If I adjust it, you would end up with way higher voltage; which could end up damaging card over long term use IMO. If anything change regarding that mod I will let you know for sure smile.gif .

Here is v1.8, tried to double check all edits I could, if there are any mistakes please post so they can be rectified smile.gif .

Change log:-

- corrected RAM density value
- corrected RAM IC vendor ID & string
- removed the "invisible" +37.5mV VDDC and +31.25mV VDDCI offset present in ROM
- added a "visible" +37.5mV VDDC and +31.25mV VDDCI offset separately

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that I have completely updated the OP (original post) to include @gupsterg's V1.8 of these BIOS files, so please feel free to go download and test them! Now I have a couple of announcements to make regarding the thread and these BIOS files:

1.) A big thank you to gupsterg for all of his hard work on the BIOS mods and helpful replies to users in this thread!

2.) Everyone should definitely go out and do a bunch of benchmarking tests with these new V1.8 BIOS files so that I can update the "performance & statistics" section of the OP, as it is very aged and is using performance results from back at V1.3 and V1.4.

3.) If we have any 290X Lightning users in the thread I would love it if they tested the V1.8 BIOS files and reported back with any successes / issues.

4.) I would really appreciate it if some people would comb through the OP and see if there is any information that is not relevant anymore or any information that I have left out.

5.) Again, hats off to gupsterg and may the BIOS modding continue!

Enjoy everyone!
