and was able to flash this BIOS to both cards:

It worked out great! No issues so far.

Now that I know I can do it fairly easily I am going to go grab the modified R9 390X BIOS from Guru3D and try to put that on the cards. Everyone that can get it to flash to their cards is reporting lower temperatures / power consumption and higher bench scores. Should be a good adventure! wink.gif
Hi i tried to flash the newest bios to this card https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/155092/gigabyte-r9290-4096-140119 , but the card crashes and don`t want to install drivers! i see here that you succeeded to flash it , can you post the bios you flashed it? it is with elpida ddr!

edit: It happened at the end with thw mod voltage elpida bios!

Hi all,

I've searched this entire thread, but can't find much about my GPU, which is the Asus R9 290 4gb (https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b2598/asus-r9-290). So not DCII, but the 'normal' one.

On the PCI-e point is written AMD and on stock (?) cooler is an Asus logo.

Could anyone tell me if I could use the modified r9 390 bios?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Forget to mention that my GPU has Elpida memory

Hi all,
Why is my card's memory still clocked at 1300? What am I doing wrong?

Hi all

I have a problem with my MSI 290X Lightning card. On stock BIOS it works on 1150/6000MHz without any problems, but results I'm having in benchmarks are lower, then on my previous Gigabyte 290X OC card with 390X BIOS on 1100/5500 (abt. 1450 vs 1541 in Unigine Heaven 4.0). So I decided to flash my Lightning card with modded BIOS from 390X, but it does not work properly after flashing! With "290X_LIGHTNING_MOD_V1.8" BIOS card can't pass even 1st test in Unigine on default clocks. Well, maybe there was a problem in voltage table from 390X, but with "290X_LIGHTNING_STOCK_V1.8" I can't pass Unigine test either. What am I doing wrong?
