Also running an older BIOS than the one Gupsterg posted for a 290 Tri-X OC on pg2 (015.042.000.000.000000 vs Gupsterg's 015.044.000.011.000000).
That's a nice oc without any voltage add. But i think the 290x/290 owners club thread would be more appropriate to post this question.

So.... is the original xfx r9 390x the only bios that can be modded?

Could you take say the R9 290 Saphire Nitro version and modd that, or it really doesn't matter which Bios you start with?

Thanks gents, got the bios flashed today using atiflash, winflash did not work...

Used the mod bios, all running sweet, and a little cooler! Although on water so wasn't too worried.

So, what's the next step to get the most benefit from these? Start OC'ing i suppose?

That is fantastic overclock. What is your ASIC quality value? You can checkout that in GPU-Z tool.

I think it is irrelevant which R9 390 bios is used provided that it is from reference PCB card. Saphire R9 390 Nitro has custom PCB and thus would not be compatible to reference cards which are majority of R9 290/290X cards.

The "NO MOD" folder contains 390 BIOS without memory timing modification. The _MOD & _STOCK same with the above, regarding voltages.

Link:- info on voltage table

The other info I have is you can regard those values as a table of stock voltages. Group voltages together as sets of 3, first is low leakage asic (ie low asic quality) , second is mid leakage (there is more to this but this is what I'll just call it) and last one is high leakage (again more to it).

So far editing those values does not seem to have any effect.

I'd be happy with that for no increase over stock voltages, does your bios 015.042.000.000.000000 show a GPU core voltage offset of 0mv in MSI AB?

Bios 015.044.000.011.000000 has a +25mv offset , I did not place in that rom but it is like that from Sapphire Support.

ASIC Quality is 71.9%

AB says it's 0mv though AB seems to have fubar'd and won't return to it's stock settings at the moment XD

It does run a bit warm at idle due to the OC via AB, but it never gets above 75°C under stress.

Going to see if I can unlock the other four CU's as any extra performance is helpful.
post #477 of 1872
The is similar ASIC quality to mine card (mine is 70%), but I cannot go further than 1050/1350. 1400MHz for memory without Vcore raise means instant black screen. Both you and I have Hynix memory ans similar ASIC quality but nevertheless their overclock ability is very different.

What Vcore value does GPU-Z report in idle? For me it is 0.984V.

I'd uninstall MSI AB saying no to keeping settings or delete the file which it records defaults/settings for a card to force re-detection.

I would also do the above after flashing a new rom, if a new rom has a varying gpu core voltage offset programmed in it or it has none and one out of voltage control chip is used then MSI AB can show anomalies.

hi
i just flashed the bios to my 290x lightning..what drivers should i put?
the 3xx series or it doesn't matter?
<
error 404

msi after burner has locked voltage..should i reinstall this too? (the v of msi ab is 4.1.1.7625)
msi AB after reinstall didn't unlock the voltage

update:
this bios is not working with my lightning...i put the mod bios for lightning
after a while it goes black screen and return,then the card is working 100% core and load (the memory stays at normal 150mhz)

It does not matter since they are the same drivers for R9 200 and 300 series. Only at 300 series launch there were different (better) drivers to make the gap look bigger.
