Have you had a chance to try this out yet? I am curious to see some benchmark comparisons of this BIOS file versus the stock R9 290X Lightning BIOS file at the same clocks.

Note: Some other R9 290X Lightning owners should try this out as well!

Thanks for your work Insan1tyOne, you kick ass !

And for those who have a 290 (especially the Asus R9 290 DCU II) and faced the black-screen till desktop issue, I've made some changes in the bios and it boots up as it should now !

Best of luck !

No, I've only modded the Elpida one, but I'll try mod the other ones and upload here.

Edit: I've updated the file with all the R9 290's memory types Bios. Try it and post here the results.

Hmm... The "MEM MOD -- Elpida" BIOS file seems to be the only one you really changed, unless I am missing something. You bumped up the core clock to 1000 and the memory clock to 1260, reset the TDP max, Power limit, and TDC limit to the DCU II's defaults, and raised the idle voltage to 990(mV). Does this really allow the DCU II to boot without the black-screen issue? If so I can create a BIOS file specifically modded for the R9 290 DCU II just like I did with the R9 290X Lightning.

Oh man, I uploaded the wrong file for the Elpida then biggrin.gif:D. The only thing I changed in order for the card to boot up was the PCI ID inside the bios hex. I'll update the file again. Sorry.

*Edit: File updated, open the bios in hex and search for the following hex value: B1 67, the original one was B0 67, which is from the 290x, some motherboards won't boot up the device if a mismatched PCI is detected (something like that).
