I have 390X Tri X Nitro rom, I can change device id to 390 or 290 and you could try it if you wanted? the roms in post 1 are XFX 390X with device id edits.

Seeing as I'm not altering the Power Limit at all I don't get why the voltage is spiking so high.
Hmm strange, for example if you set say +25mv in MSI AB @ idle you should see about 0.99x IMO not 1.2xx , regardless of power limit settings.

Thanks for info
No worries on info, try it and see.
For me when testing via MSI AB on Sapphire Tri X 290 , Vapor-X 290X and Asus DCUII 290X fans would not go below 20%, stock factory roms on each card.
Wish I'd kept the Sapphire Tri X 290 as it was ref PCB for more tests like 390 roms but sadly sold it to get the Vapor-X 290X.Edited by gupsterg - 8/31/15 at 11:10am
