Modded R9 390X BIOS for R9 290/290X (Updated 02/16/2016) - Page 43

post #421 of 1859
The Stilt created some memory timings for both Hynix and Elpida. And I believe both timings were utilized by the Bioses in the OP.
post #422 of 1859
Are there still no 390 bioses for stock PCB's?
Isn't the Sapphire Nitro using the stock PCB?

Quick question, do drivers/overclocking tools need to be un installed before flashing?

Normally I open my over-clocking tool of choice and reset all settings to defaults. Then I completely un-install any AMD drivers (using a program like DDU) before completing the flash. After flashing I then re-install the latest AMD drivers. Which, by the way, I strongly recommend these drivers as they are much newer than AMD 15.7.1.

Doing all of this seems very annoying / laborious but when flashing a new BIOS sometimes the AMD drivers tend to get a little wonky for no apparent reason.

Thank you for the clarification. thumb.gif

I guess i'll have to disable crossfire and flash one card at a time to see if there are any compatibility issues.

Apologies if this has been asked but I've read through the first 23 pages and frankly my eyes are about to fall out. Has anyone tested this mod in crossfire with a stock 290? I run a configuration that's pretty rare: R9 295x2 tri-fired with a R9 290 that's got an AIO water cooler on it with VRM cooling 'front and back'. The outcomes of testing this mod in crossfire with a stock 290 should give me the same or at least a similar answer for functionality as having someone just try the 290 flashed with a 390 bios running with a 295x2. Also Has anyone used one of the BIOS's with a Gygabyte Windforce 290? I can get you guys the stock BIOS for my windforce 290 if you would like.

Regards,

Yes, I believe it has been said before but ALWAYS be sure to disable Cross-Fire before flashing any BIOS files.

Regards,

I run two reference R9 290's in crossfire with Corsair HG10 AIO cooling and run these BIOS files just fine on both cards. Just be sure to follow the proper flashing procedure. I will be curious to see if your R9 295X2 still plays nice with the R9 290 after flashing the BIOS on the R9 290 though.

The new driver has been working great! Been running it for awhile now, and it offers slightly better performance and more stability across the board. Although rumor is that AMD Catalyst 15.8 is on the horizon with the R9 Fury Nano launching tomorrow anyways.
