A small info. If you have a r9 290 Vapor-x DONT use it. It killed one of my cards.. and my motherboard. No smells or something. A fast death.. RIP

it really killed it wow just some basic stuff i'm sure you know if your card has an dual bios switch switching it to the second one will change the bioses back and even with you second card the kittey wont boot (assuming it your sig rig)

Vapor-X don't use the reference PCB, of course it could damage the card.

both my 290x's are running fine with 1.5 memod elpida bios. It needs a little bit move vcore to handle the stock mem speeds but thats a non issue.


As you guys seen above, one of my 290x's hit the 15K firestrike with the 1.5 memod and no cheats.



I did find though, this time for sure, that blackscreens are caused either by the gpu memory controller or the lack of power from the PSU side of things.



All in all, happy with the cards and the mem-modded bios.

I have a 290x Gigabyte Windforce. Should i change for 390x bios?
What version i supposed to use?
Thaaanks!
post #338 of 1872
I went back to a standard 290 bios. The stability is just not there with the 390 bios. I miss the performance and low temps, but i rather take stability over it. Random red screen and blackscreens (blackscreen only occured under high overclocks, but still). Maybe the standard 390 bios would work better for me, after all the timings is optimized for hynix afr and i have hynix bfr. Just a wild guess, but i think some difference it must be.
UPDATE: Changed to 290 timings in the 390 bios and voltages closer to a 290. It should be close to a 290 bios now i would think. Let's see how this works.

390test.zip 99k .zip file Here is a bios that i have been working on. It is the 390 bios modded for the 290, but what i have done is that i have copied over the 290 timings and the voltageobjectinfo table into the 390 bios and changed some voltages in Hawaii bios reader. This bios gives me the same idle and load voltage as a normal 290 bios. I thought i would upload the bios here if someone would want to take look. UPDATE:No blackscreen under high overclock, time to tweak it a little more and see where this leads.

Nice going @fyzzz! I will be very interested to see where you end up with this modified 390 BIOS. I assume that the Voltage Object Info you copied over to it was from a reference R9 290? As for the timings, do you know which brand of memory timings you copied over? I'll be curious to take a look at this after you complete your final tweaks.
